Enlightened!

I had this in my Audible library for a long time but decided to listened to it while working and It had enlightened me in a way I never thought a book would. Prepare yourself to be changed in so many ways..spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. Youll never be the same person again after youve read (or listen) to this book.

Honestly... it's ok...

It has some interesting concepts that I would say serve more as reminders than new concepts.

The story doesn't really offer anything new either. The dialog between the main characters is almost laughable at times because it feels like the author is trying to hard to make the monk sound sage but it comes off as a little tacky.

3 stars because there were some interesting take-aways but unfortunately nothing new. I felt like I've heard different versions of this story hundreds of times. Unhappy rich man goes on a spiritual journey to seek enlightenment, discovers he had it within him the whole time if only he had changed his perspective, goes on to share the knowledge. Which I think is a good story but I felt like this book was very surface level in it's delivery.

Entertaining at times but not something that I would strongly recommend.

I have started applying methods that I learned into new habits. These new habits have profoundly changed my life in a meaningful way. Deep breathing, eating once a day no processed foods, cold pool 50 degree water 15 min a day and meditation

Some good points...but

I didnt learn anything that I didnt already know and it appears to me that the author was repeating himself over and over again. I try very hard to give a book a chance and I did make it through the book , however it was tedious. I also enjoy listening to my audiobooks on faster speeds and I could not enjoy the performance of this book. The speaker's accent was distracting to me. no matter what speed I adjusted it to. Sorry just not my cup of tea but maybe you will have a better experience from it than I did.

Phenomenal

Reviewing this book in words is a disservice. The truth contained in this book could be studied for a lifetime with limitless expansion.

Fantastic listen! Great lessons and great narrator

A classic book filled with great insight in a way that captivates your attention throughout the novel and leaves the lessons in a short fable that is easy to remember. Definitely a must listen and loved the narrator.

Humphrey with this book.

This amazing Life lesson, this book teaches. And with Humphrey Bowers reading this book he make you feel like you are in the conversation with the characters of the Fable.
Not my first audiobook off Humphrey. But this is first time listening of Robin Shama book and I look forward listening more of he's books.
