    "A very long way from Instant Motivation"

    I really hated this audiobook. It reads like a research thesis, not an enjoyable and engaging book.

    The author/reader drones on giving example after example of this and then that and then another example of this and then a reference to that and it goes on and on.

    I really struggled to find anything worthwhile here, and what is there is so hidden by the junk and clutter it’s hard to find, especially in an audiobook.

    This is a long way from ‘instant’ motivation. It needs a good editor to trim it down and it really needs a new narrator. The narrator has some trouble reading the lengthy sentences often, forgetting they continue after the first example with another example or two and then even more unnecessary nonsense to read out.

    If this wasn’t part of a two-for-one, I would be getting my money back.

    Avoid avoid avoid.

    "Great book, bad title"

    I really enjoyed this book even though I realised half way through it that it had very little to do with the subject of ‘Instant Motivation’. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to change their perspective and tackle unwanted anxiety that dominates their life, but if you want some ‘Instant Motivation’ try something else.

    "Glad I listened to it"

    Makes a compelling case for happiness being an “inside job” and the importance of mind thought and feelings. Very thought provoking, would recommend

    "Very insightful and valuable "

    I enjoyed this book, very much. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting - but it was better than, rather than the reverse.
    Thank you

    "Really enjoyed "

    This book approach to explaining how our mind works and how to better be in control of thoughts is great. It does it from a very factual and at the same time interesting point of view
