Summary

When our expectations are met and things go according to plan, we feel a sense of accomplishment and pride. Risking little, we feel safe, in control, and on-track. But when life throws us a curveball or does not live up to our expectations, we end up with an Expectation Hangover. This particular brand of discomfort is profoundly sobering and uncomfortable.

Christine Hassler urges us to not wallow in regret, self-recrimination, or anger, and instead see these hangovers as catalyst for profound transformation. Often life has to throw us a curveball (or several) so that we look in a different direction. When we fully treat our Expectation Hangover on the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual level, we learn courage, faith, surrender, and love, and we make room for the kind of unexpected things that lead us more directly to a life we love - rather than a life we planned.

Christine wth

I found this book through her podcast which is really good.
I am so confused about her voice on this book. It’s not even her voice but has this weird narrative tone. It would be perfect for story telling. But it’s odd and hard to concentrate when her tone is so random for the book topic. I can barely pay attention to anything being said.
If this narrator was reading a story that has characters and dialogue it would be perfect.

Good book for the beginner

If you are a bigger in personal development this book is for you. Many of the tools she uses are known reframing techniques, shifting your focus, looking at this from a different perspective and creating a balanced life.

Good Tools

There a lot of good tools in the books. I'm going to get a hard copy as well. The only thing I did not like is the name of the book expectation hangover.

I wish it was read by the author!!

I Love Love Love this book, but the performer does not do it justice. As a longtime Christine Hassler follower & podcast listener, the tone of the book’s performance does not match the content at all. For those that are not as familial with Christine’s work, I feel like they would get soooo much more out of it, if it was read by the author.

One of the best

I absolutely loved this book. I listened to it first then bought the book also to do all the of the exercises. It's a real type of book that makes you think and figure it out as to how to make it work for your own life not just being told this is how you should be. I probably will listen to it again !
Only negative was the narrator, had to get used to how she talked after a couple chapters it was okay but definitely could of been better.
But other then that its a FANTASTIC book !!

Love Christine, Hate the Audiobook

I wish Christine Hassler was reading the audio book. The woman reading sounds makes it sound like a romance or dramatic fiction novel. Christine has a very soothing way of speaking that this narrator just doesn’t have. That being said, I might just get the paper book because I love Christine’s message and really want to finish the book!

Expectation Hangover Hangover

I could not finish because of the incessant repeating of the words Expectation Hangover. There are nuggets of knowledge here but it seems like it could be summed up in a much shorter book.

Narration Tone not in Alignment with Author

I am a new and regular listener to Christine's podcast. respectfully the Narrator is in no way in alignment with the tone that Christine keeps with her audience. I couldn't get past the voice even though Christine's amazing content is still there. May I please get this taken off my library and be given a credit to my account?
