Summary

This might look like a self-help audiobook. It might even sound like one. Once you dive into it, however, you will find some differences. Unlike others of its kind, this audiobook does not promise results or give expert opinions. It is neither a miracle cure nor a magic potion. It does not pretend to have all the answers. 

Rather, this audiobook is a plea for self-trust and a gentle guide to self-awareness. Instead of helping you become who you think you should be, The Art of Talking to Yourself hopes to introduce you to someone more interesting: who you are. 

So this audiobook will not fix you. But if the words herein have their intended effect, you will reach the end realizing you do not need to be fixed. This audiobook, rather than a cure, is an exploration - a curious adventure into your inner mystery. If it inspires you to understand yourself better, it has done its job.

This book can change your life ... If you're ready

Reading or listening to this book alone won't change your life, you have to be willing to do the work.

However, If you're ready to take a good hard look, no matter how scary, painful or beautiful, this book has the ability to break you open and show you to yourself. It will show you where the questions need to be asked and where work needs to be done. If you're committed to doing that work, I guarantee you will see positive changes in your life. Real changes.

The Art of Talking to Yourself is dense, not like a scientific journal, but in its ability unearth things you probably had no awareness of. It's a strange feeling when that new awareness begins to enter your consciousness, but once it's there, you'll wonder how such huge pieces of yourself managed to stay hidden for so long.

I finished reading this book a month ago and the tears and epiphanies are still coming hard and strong. The epiphanies continue to build on themselves, peeling back the layers of my consciousness like the layers of an onion slowly revealing the core, and just when I think I’ve reached the center, it keeps going with each epiphany getting bigger and more meaningful. Just today I had yet another realization that I feel has been the most important one yet.

Reading this book has sent me on a rollercoaster ride of self-awareness and I have no idea when it's going to stop which is a little scary, but most importantly it’s extremely liberating. I am in the depths of the most intense and liberating experience of my entire life and I can't wait to see who I will have become once all of this starts to slow down.

A word of warning though...

This is not an audio book you should listen to passively at the gym or on your way to work. Sit down with it, give it ALL of your attention and let it work its magic. If you notice your mind wandering, there's probably something important bubbling up into your consciousness. That's the magic of this book so don't ignore it, pause it or put it down, let the book reveal you to yourself and resume listening or reading later. You'll be glad you did.

Highly recommended if you're ready for some profound self-discovery and serious changes in your life.

Took a while to get going but overall pretty good

My mind wandered quite a bit for much of the first half of the book. I just couldn’t get into the author’s stories. About the midway point she started talking about empathy vs apathy and that really caught my attention. Overall the author was straightforward with what this book is and what it isn’t. It won’t magically heal you, but she hopes it will give you a better understanding of how to help yourself.

Recommended by a friend and I would recommend it

Disappointing

A lot of fluff. Not much to learn or take away for the audible. The book is interprets of words and how people having different meanings for words. Not impressive. Save your money
