Happy 2022!! First of all I want to apologise for not writing much other than book reviews. I’ve been seeing clients still, but due to my counselling job at the boarding school and psychology teaching job at the college, my schedule has been so much overstretched! Luckily I’m still listening to book… So I can still write some review!
I thought this is a very old book, I was surprised to find that it’s a book published only two years ago after I finished reading(listening to) it.
It’s a great book, I particularly like the first part about Identity, Fear and Negativity. I guess that’s because they resonate very well with what I already know and practise. So I was listening to it a lot in the beginning, even thinking to come back to listen to these few chapters again, and then I slowly lost my interest. It somehow, to me, became like a book with a lot of advice, good advice, what you should and shouldn’t do, things that you know but haven’t been doing, things that show up in 80% of books about meditation or mindfulness or self-help or happiness or mental wellbeing etc.
Besides, the author has been heavily criticised for recycling quotes and using other people’s quotes as his. You may see this from the amazon reviews.
Nevertheless, I still enjoy and find it relevant and practical, and would recommend it.
Nevertheless, the author Jay Shetty read the book really, really well.
Nevertheless, the book is the winner of the Book of the Year 2021 from the British Book Awards.
