  • I really liked the concepts presented in this audiobook. However, it felt more like a condensed version rather than a full-length book. The author's performance was the highlight for me as she has a captivating reading voice. In my opinion, this falls into the category of self-help books that have a few good ideas but lack substantial content. You could easily grasp the main ideas by reading the introduction and skimming through the chapter titles. It would have been more suitable as a shorter Ted Talk rather than a lengthy five-hour audiobook. While I'm sure these ideas work for the author and perhaps for others, my main concern is the lack of evidence supporting the claims made about love overcoming fear. It all sounds great, but after listening for two hours, I couldn't find a single reference to scientific studies, peer-reviewed journals, or even testimonials from people who have successfully applied these concepts in their lives. On one hand, if the author intended to write an autobiography, that would be fine, but considering the book's title suggests it is a self-help guide, it missed the mark for me. I couldn't push through after the never-ending chapter on "tapping" that seemed to drag on forever. It didn't provide any assistance at all! Please excuse the negative review. I don't have anything against the author; it seems like Bernstein genuinely wants to spread a positive message. However, I was hoping for something more in line with Daniel Goleman's extensively researched books that delve into neuroscience to draw conclusions about the human experience. While there may be some truth in this book, it's also likely scientifically inaccurate in many aspects. For instance, the creators of Pixar's film Inside Out consulted psychologists and neuroscientists to explore how our emotions work and concluded that it's not always beneficial to force oneself to be happy. Sometimes, it's necessary to allow ourselves to express our true emotions, including crying and frustration. I do agree that we are all dealing with high levels of stress and need to learn how to manage it, but I believe this book's feel-good message lacks substantial evidence. However, the writing style and delivery were solid, so I hope to see the author produce a better-researched or more targeted book in the future.
  • The concept of eliminating self-critical tendencies is commendable. However, the writer dilutes this promising notion with an excessive amount of irrelevant content. Initially, this audiobook shows potential during the first half-hour or so. Unfortunately, the author then delves into discussions about positive energy vibrations, prayer, and other concepts that can be perceived as self-delusion.
