Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I remember my dad reading this when I was a child and assuming it was all cheesy business rhetoric but it's surprisingly very relevant to every aspect of our lives and is actually full of empathy. I've spent years learning many of these lessons the hard way, wish I had thought to read it sooner! Now I can be a lot more conscious about how I choose to handle situations and feel good about it, having read this book.

This unique and fundamentally liberating book shows us that examining our attitudes toward money - earning it, spending it, and giving it away - can offer surprising insight into our lives, our values, and the essence of prosperity. Lynne Twist, a global activist and fundraiser, has raised more than $150 million for charitable causes. Through personal stories and practical advice, she demonstrates how we can replace feelings of scarcity, guilt, and burden with experiences of sufficiency, freedom, and purpose. In this Nautilus Award-winning book, Twist shares from her own life, a journey illuminated by remarkable encounters with the richest and poorest.

The reader Cynthia Barrett talks with unnecessary over-enunciation, annoying tones and is the most inauthentic voice which really doesn't suit this genre. I found it difficult to enjoy this audiobook because of it and it was hard to concentrate on the content.

Buy the printed book and read it instead if you can.
