I listened to this twice through and was very inspired. I'm sure I will listen to it again when I feel I need a reminder of how to come back into alignment with the Universe. Thanks Gabby for all that you do!

great performance!

beautifully read. The story itself was sometimes hard to follow, but the narrator really made the characters come alive.

I enjoyed the book, the plot lagged a bit in the middle but it was otherwise good. But the performance by Blair Brown was really what made this a great experience for me. she was terrific! I will miss hearing her "Vivian" recounting her life story. loved it.

I don't know if I would have enjoyed this book as much if I'd read it rather than listened. Trevor Noah's spirited reading, his mastery of all the African languages and accents, and of course his personal connection to the stories made it entertaining from start to finish.

I thought this was a good book, a lot of common sense but it was shared in a warm and relatable way. I wish I had read/listened to this book when I was in my 20s. I'm about 12 yrs older than the author so I've learned most of these life lessons on my own already, but it was good to hear them again.

super performance!

really enjoyed this audiobook. I thought the story was very good, but what really made it come alive for me was the performance.

The book was confusing and meandered all over the place, but the excellent reading performance kept it interesting and entertaining throughout.

I loved this book and it has a lot of great ideas to ponder. however, I didn't think the reader was as convincing as she could have been, and I didn't like that the chapters of the audiobook didn't match the chapters of the book itself. she was stopping and starting in between the audio chapters, and sometimes a new chapter would begin in the middle of a section. otherwise, a great book.

great audiobook, content was okay

the narrator was great but the content was only so-so. perhaps it was groundbreaking at the time it was written but now many of the principles advised seem rather obvious. still, a good refresher on how to treat others.

Great book, just what I needed to hear to get my life back on track. Will listen again from time to time as needed.
