In You Can Heal Your Heart, self-empowerment luminary Louise Hay and renowned grief and loss expert David Kessler have come together to start a conversation on healing after loss. Louise and David discuss the emotions and thoughts that occur when a relationship leaves you brokenhearted, a marriage ends in divorce, or a loved one dies. They will also help you develop greater self-awareness and compassion, providing you with the courage and tools to face many other types of losses and challenges, such as saying good-bye to a beloved pet, losing your job, coming to terms with a life-threatening illness or disease, and much more.
With a perfect blend of Louise’s affirmations and teachings on the power of your thoughts and David’s many years of working with those in grief, this remarkable audiobook will inspire an extraordinary new way of thinking, bringing profound love and joy into your life. You will not only learn how to harness the power of your grief to help you grow and find peace, but you will also discover that, yes, you can heal your heart.
This book provides deep and useful for dealing with loss and transition. In addition to the main themes of separation and death, I loved the last chapter which touches upon other aspects of loss including loss of a job and challenges related to one's identify. I would definitely recommend this - not just for people who are currently dealing with transition or grief - since the lessons hold good for every point of the journey.
I saw the critical feedback on the narration and was worried about purchasing the audio book initially. But my experience was just the opposite. If anything the combination between Louise Hay's soothing, sage-like voice and Kessler's earnest and and enthused narration made the book come alive for me. This is one book that you will put down and genuinely thank the authors for the gift of their insight!

What did you love best about You Can Heal Your Heart?
First, let me start my review by being clear this book is not REALLY “By Louise Hay” as they want you to think. I adore Louise Hay, I have all her books. However, Louise is not 87 years old and clearly can not or does not want to write additional books on her own. For whatever reason (to sell books and make profits, I assume) her publishing company, Hay House, has developed a new “idea”. They have another author write 99.5% of a book, they have said author narrate 99.5% of said book, they have the author lovely mention Louise having input into the text and then you will hear Louise read a few affirmations or make a VERY brief comment during the audio. They then slap her name on the cover as a co-author which I believe does her and her fans a major disservice. That is what Hay House has done here. That is what they did with “All Is Well”. I hope they stop, but I had a strong feeling when I bought his book that is what they had done so I wasn't totally shocked, just rolled my eyes.
What other book might you compare You Can Heal Your Heart to and why?
As I said "All is Well" and that is not a good thing.
Would you be willing to try another one of Louise Hay and David Kessler ’s performances?
This book is not read by Louise Hay. It is almost entirely David Kessler and a flaw of the audiobook which I have seen far too often is having the author read it. David Kessler is not a good narrator. He actually stops a few times mid-sentence as if he lost his place or was unsure where to pause (I thought it was me, I re-listened, nope.) and a couple of times uses the term “herself” when he means “himself” and “her” when he mean “him”. He does THAT several times and I have no idea if the actual book is also incorrect but you spot it each time. Why they let those error get released instead of simply re-recording that portion escapes me. However, as informative as David Kessler's information may be, his reading of his own text shouldn't have happened and it can be distracting. He is also very monotone.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
That above said, there IS VALUE to this book. The READ author David Kessler does impart important information about grief be it via a breakup, divorce or death as the book claims. I made notes of a number of things he shared and found it very helpful. So I recommend this book.
Any additional comments?
I am a longtime user of Audible and typically review the books I have listened to to help others. I will say that the "review form" is very poor as it asks you question that may have not be what you care to discuss about the book. SO, if my responses don't quite answer the question asked, sorry. The form forces you to adapt it to your own needs.

The authors build the readers confidence to get through the great traumas of life from loosing a job, divorce, major illness to the loss of a loved one. The focus is on using positive affirmations to build the psyche and get out of the victim why me mentality. A very good read to dealing with the grief and moving on.

Disappointed at the scope of examples given. May be a great introduction and overview to the facets of grief, but certainly seems to be missing the HEART connection.
This book was exactly what wasI needed to hear during my divorce. Right on point
this is a great book for healing and helping you to forgive an experience that you may have gone through. it does focus on break up, divorces, and death, but over all great book to help you understand other experiences also need healing.
good but not great. iys a bit boring in some of the chapters. pet part i didnt even listen to.
The book, while simple, is utterly powerful. It has opened my eyes to some of the aspects of grief that were unresolved in my life. Thank you, thank you!!
I highly recommend this as it addresses different types of losses. Also, the type of losses are divided into different chapters so you can focus on one type of loss at a time. The affirmations in the book are helpful.
if you want great affirmations to let go and help the process, this is the book.
Their voices are great, i never got distracted like it happens with other readers.
