Started off great and then the bible barking begins and ruins it.
Great book! Just seems to speak to the middle aged person that is wandering mentally.
Wish I had listened to it a few years back.
Definitely directed toward a specific post-career audience, but because that’s where I am, it was quite helpful. The narration was very engaging and natural.
Not a fan. I found his book very hypocritical. A vanity project for the author- everything he preached against. The religiosity and bible thumping at the end was just too much for me. I finished the book but would not recommend. I felt feeling like I was being lectured to for 5 hours while being completely invalidated. I’ll need therapy after this book. I’m Catholic and so is the author. He takes Catholic guilt and imposes it on you. I have enough misogyny and minimizing in my life. I didn’t need it from the author.
The idea presented in the book is interesting enough. With the fact that your intelligent changes over time being a very good concept to have in mind.
However it is so steeped in religious and new age spiritualism malarkey that it gets unbearable to listen to at times.
There is so much covered in this book! It was a little difficult to keep everything mentally organized, but the content was pretty incredible from my perspective. The narrator was a little bland, but as a 4th generation veteran, I especially appreciated the vast research sited about PTSD and the methodologies that have worked and not worked over time. As a father I appreciated the insight that prompted my own self reflection into the ways my development influenced the emotional development of my own children. Overall, despite the enormity of the information and my own need to spread my consumption over several weeks, I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated this book.
This is really helpful. I am still in my 30s but been worried more how it will be in my 50s/ 60s and this book has highlighted some of the major concerns I had . The narrator is excellent!
