Annoying narrator

Oh my! How annoying is this narrator? I just can't listen to this seriously, had to stop it.

Ok if you can get past the narrator

Although when I listened to the sample reading before purchasing this, I thought I'd get along with it, when I tried to listen to it for more than a few minutes I found myself mildly irritated. I think it was to do with the author's dedication at the beginning to his wife; all a bit over the top and I started thinking about that film 'Meet the Fockers.' Although the message is to just do one thing a day to develop your 'Buddha Brain', it seemed a bit like he wants a commitment that you WILL do this every day. A bit too much like hard work . . .

full of good points

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Fred Stella reads it very well, albeit a little to fast. I had to slow down my iPod. I wish it had been divided in chapters so that it would be easier to go back and forth.

Extremely helpful and covers so much information

I loved this book and have listened to it many times. Information for physical and mental health. If you choose to read, I suggest reading through once and just focusing on what works for you and less concern for the details and total comprehension.

Washed out message with a horrible vocal actor

Painful to listen to, the voice actor was not a good fit for the subject. The entire book read like a list of suggestions in an email. There was nothing profound, and this is certainly not a book written for people who already have their heads out of the sand.
