Would you consider the audio edition of Nonviolent Communication to be better than the print version?

A good addition. It really is a superb book but putting in into practice made me harder (especially when the inner jackal is biting.

What other book might you compare Nonviolent Communication to, and why?

Any of Rosenbergs books.. It is a book which is very practical.

Have you listened to any of Marshall Rosenberg’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have heard Marshall on youtube vids and this is very good addition

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Communications with compassion

Any additional comments?

No book has made me so self aware recently - there are some pearls of wisdom and challenges. Sadly Marshal died this year however the knock on effect of his work lives on...

A superb book on Mathew

What did you like best about The Way of the Wild Heart? What did you like least?

I do like Edldredge so really struggled with rating this one. The book made me want to be more of a wild man haha! The problem is - the reality....Eldredge goes to the Rockies,,,to cimb and gives younger tribe members swords - it sounds great -but would be a bit odd for me to do it... I liekd it but cant see it changing me... (i may be the problem!)

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

No knowing what to do his how it ended for me...

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kelly Ryan?

Yup

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Maybe - but the audience would be a bit annoying!

Any additional comments?

Give it a go but probably just stick to his 1st book on this subject

Would you consider the audio edition of How to Stop Smoking and Stay Stopped for Good to be better than the print version?

I gave up smoking May 2013 using this audiobook (over a year). I have tried everything and it hasnt worked. Now it may have been partly due to other things (youtube vids, gritted teeth etc) but I think this book was the deal clincher!

What other book might you compare How to Stop Smoking and Stay Stopped for Good to, and why?

Bit like Allen Carr but i preferred Gillian everyday of the week!

What about Jerome Pride’s performance did you like?

Not bad - very listenable

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

What a drag - 20 years of smoking,,,

Any additional comments?

It is no magic cure - read it, and re-read until you feel ready to quit - good luck

A Beautiful Book
