I love it

This book is just beautiful- I read it as a book but listening to the authors own voice - which is a beautiful soft velvety voice accompanied by the Piano reflections really is an audible treat. Like a cup of hot chocolate on cold winters day - with cream !

Love this book, love the audio even more

Sarah Ban Breathnach has written some wonderful books that have helped me find the simple life. Her audio books are wonderful - her voice is a pleasure to listen to ask you learn how to live an authentic life.

Introduction to the Concepts of Simple Abundance

I purchased this audio version months ago and never listened to it. I don't know why I waited so long because it was absolutely lovely. It presents the structure of the print version with short stories to illustrate the themes. It is NOT a word by word version of the print version but it is worth the 2 hours of your time to listen. I will be purchasing the print version soon.

a lovely soothing book

I found some of the topics to be overly General and cliche, but the booklet in overall was lovely and soothing the narrator did a good job and the piano excerpts were nice. Reminder to find your own pace and to live your authentic self

loved it!

I have the book in print. The audio book is just as excellent. The narrators are great. My long commute to work becomes much easier to tolerate and I arrive at work in a better mood.

Maybe READING it would be better?

I like the subject matter so I was really excited to listen to this book. Hate to say it, but I reallyyy disliked the voice/narration. Soooo hard to listen to without losing interest! Someone else should've narrated. Very unfortunate.

Hi-hum

This book was highly recommended to me as one that changed someone's life. I think that person must have lived a sheltered life or had been living under a rock. Good concepts but so basic for anyone who has done any amount of spiritual work or exploration that I'd recommend bypassing and going for any one of Brene Brown's works
