Far too abbreviated. Brilliant, but quite short.

Far too abbreviated. Brilliant, but quite short. This book is far too good to only include half of it.

Let the wise people do the talking

Dr. Dyer's approach to presenting the principles is genius. Presenting the teachings of so many of the wise people that have walked the earth throughout our history, rather than just presenting his own ideas had a lot of impact on me as I listened to this recording.

overview

Simplistic, brief overview of chosen authors, poets, philosophers. I expected more depth and discussion based on this vast topic.

Wisdom of the ages.

As always, Dyer delivers another wise and inspiring book. His wisdom and interpretation of historical figures' sayings reveals more than just the words themselves but a deep understanding. My only criticism is that this audio book was too short.
