Description

This unique and fundamentally liberating book shows us that examining our attitudes toward money - earning it, spending it, and giving it away - can offer surprising insight into our lives, our values, and the essence of prosperity.

Lynne Twist, a global activist and fundraiser, has raised more than $150 million for charitable causes. Through personal stories and practical advice, she demonstrates how we can replace feelings of scarcity, guilt, and burden with experiences of sufficiency, freedom, and purpose. In this Nautilus Award-winning book, Twist shares from her own life, a journey illuminated by remarkable encounters with the richest and poorest, from the famous (Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama) to the anonymous but unforgettable heroes of everyday life.

Preachy narrator

The message of this book was good but it got a little redundant and preachy towards the end and the narrator made it even worse...she sounds like the strict goody goody teacher you always dreaded in school. I would prob not recommend this audible to my friends.

Helped me redefine my relationship with money.

Good book with some really great points. Sometimes it's gets a little too flowery for my taste, but it never really lost my attention.

Definitely worth listening to!

Terrible Reader

The reader over pronounces her words in a way that no one talks, and it was very distracting. No emotion, almost like listening to the news for hours. I kept tuning the book out and after being halfway though, decided to call it quits. The content was probably great, but the reader was too distracting for me to actually listen to what they were saying.

Inspiring insight into utilising the flow of money

Very thought provoking. It reinforces my life purpose. Thank you for sharing your experiences. It provides hope that individually we can all change the world with our own actions

Life changing

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful this book is. It took me 38 years to understand that money has a soul, a life force and that we get to assign that life force to money. I was assigning "not enough" and that's exactly what I got. I'm working with myself to heal years of incorrect beliefs about money, and this book helped. Thanks Lynne. What an inspiring motivational book.

How much is "enough"?

The concepts are almost mind-blowing in their simplicity and yet are completely life-changing. The concepts of "enough", "you AND me instead of you OR me" and changing huge cultural norms by not accepting "the way things have always been done" and committing to change, definitely shook me out of my current lazy assumptions about money. It's a little idealistic, but that is possibly due to her own background of never having had to struggle for money.

On the negative side, the narrator is a horrendous over-enunciator and makes the author sound like a self-righteous snob in some parts of the book, simply by the snooty way she reads it. If you have the choice, I would recommend reading this one instead of having it read to you. I think that the author's warmth and sincerity would come across much more clearly in the printed form.

Bottom line: I'll definitely recommend this book to people. First in line is my brother-in-law, a financial planner.

Really bad narration

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not- I tell them the content and message of Lynn Twist's book may be valuable, but its hard to get it with the annoying narration. I am planning to buy the book in print so I can actually absorb it.

Would you be willing to try another book from Lynne Twist? Why or why not?

Only with a different narrator.

Would you be willing to try another one of Cynthia Barrett’s performances?

Never- this narration was excruciating to listen to- it literally made me cringe.

Any additional comments?

I've listened to many audiobooks while commuting 15+ years and this narrator was like chalk on a blackboard. She was painfully over-articulated and her tonality was just plain strange. It come off very pretentious and made the content seem insincere and self indulgent when I am not sure that is the spirit in which the book was written. I saw other comments and thought I could still enjoy the content while tolerating the narration but not so.

Out of this world!

I'm in awe with the depth of this book. I will NEVER look at money the same way. The insights about resources are nothing but remarkable! This is the best book I've read in a long time and would highly recommend it to anyone willing to question their assumptions about money.

Relevant (and recommended) to everyone

I was recommended this book to learn about my relationship with money and I did learn about it, but I also learned about decision making, collaboration, resourcefulness, and the transformation human society go through in these times.

In this book, the use of language is accurate, the storytelling is interesting and ignited my imagination, and the insights of a lifetime are offered in way that's fun to read and easy to comprehend.

Thank you Lynn for this beautiful book, Cynthia for the clear and pleasant narration, and Audible for making it available in this comfortable format for a traveller like me.
