it was ok

It was hard to follow and it probably would have been better in paper than audio as there are some recipes in it that she just reads the ingredients in it which is boring to hear.

Pretty shallow explanations

And all those recipes, I just think this is not a book made for audio. I lost my patience when I realised I’m just listening to recipe after recipe and it’s not working in audio format.

Not audiobook friendly

Lots of recipes, yoga poses, etc. made this not ideal for audio format. Would be better to read a hardcopy.

very informative book

Extremely interesting and informative book. Definitely would be more useful in a paper version, so will be ordering it that way.

A great introduction for a beginner like me

A great introduction for a beginner like me.
Really useful information and well presented. Well explained and easy enough to follow and understand.
I did read the lower ratings criticising the number of long recipes which are described in the audio book. This can be a bit annoying to be fair, but you do get a PDF so you can skip forward if you like.
Definitely a lot of useful information and practices to try. I think this is a really good beginners guide.

Not for Audible

Good info but not for listening since it contains recipes and such. Better to read hardcover

Perfect introduction to ayurveda

I've been practicing ayurveda off and on for 2 years now, on my own, and this book was able to go above and beyond any of the research I've done myself and gave me SUCH a better foundation. I am looking to book an appointment with an ayurvedic practitioner and I feel very well prepared for our consultation and confident in my basic understanding of what will probably be done for my needs. My husband also loved this book and in listening to it, decided he would join me in this lifestyle.

Great Beginner's Guide

I wanted to know more about Ayurveda and wasn't sure where to start. This book was a great find because it scratched that itch, so to speak. I have a better understanding of the philosophy and practices of Ayurvedic beliefs.

Great education for healthy happy life

This is a very practical and well written and well read guide to holistic health, written in a way that a lay person can totally understand and implement without a lot of hassle and expense.

I studied Chinese medicine for five years and took many courses on AyurVedic medicine…

And this wonderful book brought me back up to speed and I even learned things that I never knew before.

The most wonderful listen, you won’t regret it!

Simple

Made simple for those of us who don't want over explaining. I really liked this book. It had good detail and Iiked the side warnings and recommendations.
