Ruby Wax - comedian, writer and mental health campaigner - shows us how our minds can jeopardize our sanity. With her own periods of depression and now a Masters from Oxford in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy to draw from, she explains how our busy, chattering, self-critical thoughts drive us to anxiety and stress. If we are to break the cycle, we need to understand how our brains work, rewire our thinking and find calm in a frenetic world.

Well worth the listen, however the volume of the narration varies throughout the audiobook making it tough to listen to at points.

Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie - and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original.

  • Let It Go

Forgive and forget. It should be easy to do—so why don’t we do it? The father who wasn’t always there for us. The mother who punished us. The spouse who betrayed us. The children who will leave us behind. Whoever and whatever the source of hurt, there is always a path to forgiveness. But too often, instead of forgiving, too many of us live with resentments and grudges that keep us stuck, robbing us of joy, peace, and purpose.

Would you consider the audio edition of Let It Go to be better than the print version?

Yes I would as you get the author's own inflections on the words

What other book might you compare Let It Go to, and why?

Can't compare it. It deals so well with unforgiveness. I experienced a feeling of something being broken off me while going though the book.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

All of it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No

Any additional comments?

None
