Something is strange with the speed of this recording

Something is strange with the speed of this recording, so sometimes I was checking my phone to see that the speed is set up to x1. It is very annoying.

worth the read for sure

This book is full of so many gold nuggets and quotable lines. Huge thanks to the author for sharing her wisdom.
I love the way she eloquently ties in faith in God, it makes it very digestible and not off putting for those who might not consider themselves Christ followers.

That being said, for those with a strong faith in Jesus, it does come off a little "new-agey" at times. Not enough to be off putting, just enough to make you a smile and go "Ok Marianne, ok."

Amazing.

I absolutely love this book. I've listened a few times now and everytime it forces me back into an empowered mindset where I can forgive, understand and trust myself and the world around me. Thank you Marianne for sharing your work with us.

My return to love

This book was suggested by my therapist. She warned that it might be too "religious" for me. I think this is the most impacting book I've read and I read a ton. It has sensitized me and awakened me like nothing else could. It changed my outlook entirely. . .and I've never said that before. It was a wonderful, human experience. I'm going to read it again and I can't even wait for the copy I lent to someone a couple of days ago!!!!

Just what I needed

I had this book on tape years ago and still do along with most of her stuff but I have not had a tape player to listen to it on for along time.I just downloaded it to my IPOD and can not wait to hear it again. She has a perfect understanding of human nature and knows exactly the right things to say to help you, help yourself through almost any situation. I would absolutely recommend this to any one who is looking for some spiritual guidance. I have all her other audibles in my wish list!

Explains "A Course in Miracles"

Introduced to A Course in Miracles by a group of AA members, I found it helpful but a bit of a challenge. This author provides a wonderful, practical, plain-english introduction that resurrected my interest in the more challenging text. By itself, "A Return To Love" is a nice piece of work for those who hear that quiet voice saying "something is out of tune." For me, it was. Williams helped me understand the problem and the solution in a way that enabled me to get better...much better.

Exactly what I needed...

I am going through a tough time in my life, and I needed inspiration, a deeper level in which to go to heal. I found _A Return to Love_ after listening to Marianne Williamson's _A Course in Weight Loss_, which I also liked very much as a spiritual solution to weight loss and freedom from eating disorders. Yes, the problems are still there, but I am beginning a deeper relationship with unconditional (God) love in my own heart. A good introduction to feeling more love in your life. =D

If you could sum up A Return to Love in three words, what would they be?

What does Marianne Williamson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

passion

A life changing listen

What did you love best about A Return to Love?

Simpleness of the story meant I could relate to it easily.

What other book might you compare A Return to Love to and why?

not sure right now

What about Marianne Williamson’s performance did you like?

Everything, it is complete.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book touched a cord in my heart and allowed the light at the end of the dark tunnel to shine a little brighter.

Any additional comments?

A worthwhile listen

Amazing book, but very low volume.

This book is unreal! The book will literally change your life, you'll be rethinking things that you were so sure about, you'll be looking at things from a different angle. My only complaint is that Marianne talks very low and it was very hard to understand her.

Easily the most life-changing book I've ever read

I'm not sure how I would have felt about this book if I had encountered it 5 years ago, but between then and now, I have worked with a personal coach and started my own personal growth journey. The journey has moved forward in an on-again, off-again fashion (mostly off!) but I know I have changed and grown in a positive direction. It all started when working with my coach, when with her prodding, I experienced a breakthrough insight. I have called that moment a miracle because within days, my relationship with my husband made a 180 degree turn from negative to positive. And it is still on that positive trend now, five years later.

Listening to “A Return to Love,” I heard echoes of many of the things my coach was trying to tell me back then, but which I was not ready to hear. Now, it seems I am ready and many, many things in this book sparked recognition and understanding for me.

This book also created another miracle in my life. While reading it, I was suddenly moved to buy a plane ticket to visit a close friend. Without going into the details, I firmly believe that had I not made that impromptu visit, she would be dead right now. Not only that, but the concepts in the book are helping me know how to react to her situation in a healthy way that hopefully will contribute to her ability to heal herself.

This book is not for everyone, but if you have begun to explore the concept that it is our thoughts that mold our own reality, then you may be ready for “A Return to Love.”

[I listened to this as an audio book read by the author. She reads very well and also very quickly, so I slowed the speed down a bit. Also, I didn’t realize it when I bought it, but I listened to an abridged version. This is a great way to be introduced to this topic, and I would recommend the abridged version if you are hesitating. If you are as inspired by this short version as I have been, the full version awaits!]

LOVE this book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I've read the paper version of this book in different sessions at different points in time. Many parts more than once. Listening to this, instead of reading it, I was able to pick up entirely different points than when I'd read it before. It was like reading a second version of the book I'd already read.

Marianne Williamson is one of my favorite spiritual leaders. I love her philosophy and her explanations. She is REALLY on to something.

I highly recommend this book for something who is tired of trying to compare/compete with others and really just wants to live life to their OWN true potential.
