  • "Get over the hangup - does NOT push..."

    Overall

    There are a few reviewers who have written off the book because the author happens to merely mention - in one sentence in the prologue - that he is a Christian. Surely the problem is no more than if he had mentioned being an atheist? - Anyway it is irrelevant to the content of the book and has no bearing on the concept, which is well researched and solid. The author has presented to boards of directors of major international companies and organisations and they wouldn't buy into crap and this is in no way wishy-washy or spiritual, the principles are well set out and argued.
    I let the voice - which some may find jarring - pass over me and listened to the content which was what I bought it for after all.
    Very insightful and well organised.
    As an open minded individual - as far as one may be - why are so many people so touchy as to junk an entire book that is well reviewed by many business leaders and thinkers (and others) simply because an author mentions that he/she has a belief system? Very odd methinks...perhaps there may be something in it. Must look deeper myself perhaps - shall look in the relevant Audible category for a scholarly work without a strong agenda in either direction methinks! - Any suggestions anyone?

    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Triplecat says: "Highly recommended."
  • "Excellent book, narration questiona..."

    Overall

    The content of this work is very strong, the information is solid and the author clearly knows his stuff. This is a very helpful book for anyone suffering with this disorder: for the book itself I would give five stars.

    This being said I find the delivery from this narrator irritating to the nth degree - overly dramatised and insincere to my ear - I have ordered a new paperback copy as I am not going to be able to listen through to the end without having a major relapse.

    I am sure that Lynsey Frost would be great with different material, but don't feel that she is playing to her strengths with this one - tries too hard and overly dramatic for such a publication. However this is just my opinion and others may well disagree. My fault I should have listened to a preview first!

    Overall: great content and if you like this narration then a good investment.

    If you suffer from depression you are not alone - it affects 15.5 million in the US, and more than 3 million in the UK - and, you are much stronger than you think. This best-selling book, written by a leading consultant psychiatrist, explains that people with depression do battle with pressures and stresses that other people would run away from, until their bodies can take no more. In this book, depression is placed authoritatively as a physical illness, from which recovery is possible.

    Stair says: "Excellent book, narration questionable I feel"
  • "Very useful tool"

    I have found this to be very relaxing and well recorded and presented. It also appears to be effective for me - at least to date.

This is an introduction to Mindfulness, which reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to help break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness and exhaustion. Mindfulness is based on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), which is recommended by the UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence and is as effective as drugs for preventing depression.

    Wut, Angst, Scham - nur ein Teil der Gefühle, die gemeinhin als negativ bewertet werden. Dem gegenüber steht als höchstes Ziel das dauerhafte, allumfassende Glück, das keinen Platz lässt für emotionale Abgründe. Doch die Abgründe sind da - und werden umso größer, je mehr wir sie ignorieren. Emotionale Leere oder Schuldgefühle sind nicht selten Ausdruck der Unterdrückung unserer Gefühle zugunsten der Diktatur des Glücks.
