Expanded my perceptions of my gratitude habit

I learned gratitude from The Secret and have used it for years now. This is a good refresher and good to expand on the subject to make you want to use it even more. I think the new content I have contemplated more since listening to this book, is the gratitude for the so called "bad" in life. The downside is there is sooo much marketing of his programme and material. I haven't heard another author do this and it turned me off the book a bit. But is still worth a listen I believe.

Grounding Advice

Great advice again from the Dr, great narrator, a joy to listen to. Love to hear the lost causes taken on the turnaround that the Dr has made in these lives. Left with the gratitude effect in my life and I can see how the bad things in my past have brought great joy in my present

The best book I ever read

This has been the best book I ever read and I read quite some good ones. The most inspiring and easy to apply in your day to day life. It changed my perspective of life. I am so grateful for this book and the opportunity to review it. I bought this book a couple of years but For reasons I cannot explain I never read it up until now.

Well produced, great subject

The narration is consistently good. The subject matter - developing true gratitude - is, I believe, of enormous benefit. Certainly I have seen benefits of what the author calls the 'gratitude effect'.

A treasure for those with the vision to see it

Dr. Demartini delivers a source of awareness about the universe we live in and the one we have inside. It has been a truly revealing experience I have not yet assimilated. I have listened to the audiobook several times, and every time I learn something new. Thanks you Dr. Demartini, you have changed my life forever.

Love Demartini, Not his best book

All his books seem to have the same meat and different gravy. I would recommend reading "the Break through experience" its the best one in my opinion.

Disappointing Listen....

Would you try another book from John F. Demartini and/or Erik Synnestvetd?

Not if it is not read by the author!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Yes, yes, and YES!

Any additional comments?

I bought this book after seeing the author in a TV interview.....I loved him, the way he spoke, his enthusiasm.....I expected great things from this audiobook.....unfortunately I failed to notice it was not read by the author---it was a most horrible read!! I could only listen for 1/2 hour, after that couldn't take it anymore.....
It would probably be a good book, if it was read by the author......

Enhance your life – no matter how happy you are

Where does The Gratitude Effect rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Gratitude Effect is certainly one of the best audiobooks I’ve listened to, and I can confirm I’ve listened to many.

What did you like best about this story?

A simple message, timeless and one that we all know. Easy and pure – 'gratitude' is something we all need to apply to our daily lives for even the minor things we sometimes take for granted.

Which character – as performed by Erik Synnestvetd – was your favorite?

Dr Demartini - what an amazing and fortunate life he has had so far. I also really liked the references to his late wife 'Athena Starwoman' a fellow Australian.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Gratitude Effect?

I am now committed to seeing and acknowledging the great things big and small that I experience daily.

Any additional comments?

I'm very excited and looking forward to seeing Dr Demartini this Saturday 4th August in Sydney. This will be the first time for me to attend a Dr Demartini seminar.

If you want more background than in the 'Secret'

I was a bit dissapointed that John did not read this himself. The narrator was ok, but you tend to link to the author when you have seen him in the movie The Secret. But the book does go into more detail and reinforces a great principle. If you are on a self improvement quest, you have to listen to this one too.
