In my top 3 audiobooks of 2018.

I am listening to this for self development while walking along my spiritual path. And, I am very thankful a friend recommend it to me. The ‘quotable quotes’ are excellent, as are the reviews of content every so often. I particularly liked the narrator’s delivery in this book. Will listen to it again.

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

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.

A Spiritual Fable for the Millennial

The title alone sounds enthralling: A MONK that owned a Ferrari but sold it?! To even question the title is a good enough reason to pick this book up and obtain the value it offers.

It is centered around a lawyer circle who, in critical health and mental state, left the corporate rat race to pursue a peaceful life; that of a stoic monk lifestyle. It changed him forever. A fantastic-fictional tale of lessons that can be applied to daily life. Both spiritually awakening to self-development, this book is great for bettering oneself. I highly recommend this book!
