Storytelling with real meaning

This is one of my favourite personal development books.

The story is simple believable and profound.

The author's website is a valuable resource to put into practice the lessons learned.

A real soul searching deep listen. Highly recommended x

Life Changing

Would you consider the audio edition of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari to be better than the print version?

NA

What did you like best about this story?

I did not expect the lessons I got from reading this book about the little joys of life and making time for those we love. The wise words from the Yogi of Savannah are indeed transformative. The power of Kaizen and thinking progressively can lead to changes in our behaviour and choices. Are we living our lives for ourselves or for others.

What about Humphrey Bower’s performance did you like?

His voice changes with every lesson and conversation which makes it life-like.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes. The discussions of Julian with his student by his tea table and rug late into the night. When he found the monks of Savannah, I thought it sounded rather fictitious.

Any additional comments?

"You sow a thought, you reap an action, sow a habit you reap a character, sow a character you reap your destiny."

Boring and trite

Keeps repeating itself. Can't complete it. Just a slog. Just read a lululemon bag and save yourself twenty dollars and 6 hours

Inspirational

I have started applying methods that I learned into new habits. These new habits have profoundly changed my life in a meaningful way. Deep breathing, eating once a day no processed foods, cold pool 50 degree water 15 min a day and meditation

Humphrey with this book.

This amazing Life lesson, this book teaches. And with Humphrey Bowers reading this book he make you feel like you are in the conversation with the characters of the Fable.
Not my first audiobook off Humphrey. But this is first time listening of Robin Shama book and I look forward listening more of he's books.
