Description

The first edition of Radical Honesty became a nationwide best seller in 1995 because it was not a kinder, gentler self-help book. It was a shocker! In it, Dr. Brad Blanton, a psychotherapist and expert on stress management, explored the myths, superstitions and lies by which we all live. And this newly revised edition is even worse!

Blanton shows us how stress comes not from the environment, but from the self-built jail of the mind. What keeps us in our self-built jails is lying.

"We all lie like hell," Dr. Blanton says. "It wears us out...it is the major source of all human stress. It kills us." Not telling our friends, lovers, spouses, or bosses about what we do, feel, or think keeps us locked in that mind jail. The way out is to get good at telling the truth, and Dr. Blanton provides the tools we can use to escape from that jail of the mind. This book is the cake with the file in it.

In Radical Honesty, Dr. Blanton coaches us on how to have lives that work, how to have relationships that are alive and passionate, and how to create intimacy where none exists. As we have been taught by the philosophical and spiritual sources of our culture for thousands of years, from Plato to Nietzsche, from the Bible to Emerson, the truth shall set you free.

Radical Mess

The least I expect from an audiobook is for it to be presented in chronological order. The recording is out of order and full of mistakes and poor production value. Save your money/credits for something more worthy.

Absolutely embarrassing audiobook production

What disappointed you about Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth?

This sounds like it was recorded on an iPhone in 40 second chunks. Incredibly hard to listen to, and amateurish.

Would you be willing to try another one of Brad Blanton’s performances?

No thank you.

Any additional comments?

Audible seriously needs to rerecord this book with a professional narrator if they expect to charge money for this audiobook.

The narrator

The volume changes and so the tone of the narrator's voice. Most of the time, he coughs, or makes short noises after words. He sounds bored and tired. He mispronounce words or stops the reading to sort of understand the word he is reading.
It's a turnoff and unfortunately because his attitude on his voice is a distraction to the book itself.
I regret spending the money

Save your credit and go buy the book.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The recording is by far the worst I have ever heard! Really which that I had listened to the sampler before spending the credit on it.

Would you recommend Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth to your friends? Why or why not?

The subject matter is indeed very interesting. The audio recording of the book however is awful.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brad Blanton?

Anyone who could record it in such a way that it i) doesn't sound like it was recorded in the bathroom; ii) someone who doesn't sound bored by the fact that they are reading it; and iii) someone who can splice the entire audio recording together in such a way that it doesn't sound like a 5 year old put it together!

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

maybe, so long as the guy reading isn't in it.

Any additional comments?

Read the book, don't bother listening to this version of it.

Still worth it..

The production of the audiobook itself is quite poor, but it's still one of the best books ever written. If Audiobook is your preferred option, don't let the audio quality make you give up on it.

Love the book. Nearly impossible to listen to.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brad Blanton?

The audio levels and tone of voice are all over the place in this audible. I really don't understand how it can be that the narrator is also the author as it doesn't sound like the reader has any idea what he is reading. Many times sentences sound like they have come to an end, but then a new recording is spliced in to add a few more words. This is very disorienting and hard to follow. For example one sentence goes, "The mind is a terrible thing" then followed with a pause and what sounds like a new recording, "wasted" This sort of thing happens throughout. I will most likely get the book so I can reread on my own.

Radical and Real

Sometimes I had a hard time hearing the author narration; however, I always enjoy the actual author delivering their own work and the sincerity, laughter and extra touches that will come with it when they do. I feel like I was given a gift.

Loved it!!!

Where does Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is definitely in my top 3 books that I've bought on Audible.com.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth?

My favorite part is when he tells why he wrote the book and what he wants from writing it. He speaks from the heart and says most things people won't say, but could, if they were being honest.

Have you listened to any of Brad Blanton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

N/A

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not so much. I guess I was inspired at the idea of being honest and what it can do for your life, mentally, emotionally, and physically. I really related to what he was saying from where I was in my life and seeing that a lot of what holds me back or creates the way I feel is from withholding what is true for me.

Any additional comments?

I love the idea of being honest in as many areas of life as possible! It's not always going to be easy, and like they say anything worth earning takes some effort. I also like how he describes the difference between being and mind. A distinction that isn't always covered in western society, and yet from my experience is key to knowing "yourself" so you can be honest about "who you are".

Gutes Buch - schlimme Umsetzung!

Das Buch ist vom Inhalt her super, der Sprecher nimmt aber einen die Lust zum weiterhören. Schlechte Qualität der Aussprache sowie der Audioaufnahme an sich. Ich hoffe da kommt noch eine zweite Version raus. Diese sucks!

Schlechteste AudioQualität aller Zeiten

Es ist richtig unverschämt so etwas als Hörbuch zu verkaufen. Die Audio-Qualität ist einfach nur katastrophal, die Sprachnachrichten meines Smartphones sind besser. Manchmal zu laut, manchmal zu leise, und absolut lustlos vorgetragen. Zudem wiederholt sich an einer Stelle die Aufnahme einfach.
Kauft es bitte nicht. Zum Inhalt kann ich nichts sagen, da man wenig versteht und nach 30 Minuten meine Ohren abgefallen sind.
AUF KEINEN FALL ALS HÖRBUCH KAUFEN!!!!!!!

Unglaublich schlecht gelesen - nicht kaufen!

Was genau hat Sie an Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth enttäuscht?

Mich hat das Thema interessiert und ich stand vor der Entscheidung, entweder das Buch oder das Hörbuch zu kaufen. Wollte es auch in Originalsprache lesen bzw. hören. Leider habe ich vor dem Kauf keine Rezensionen gelesen.

Der Sprecher (der Autor selbst) trägt das Buch absolut leidenschaftslos und mit monoton einschläfernder Stimme vor. Oft hört man ein Räuspern oder Seufzen als hätte er nicht wirklich Lust, das Buch vorzulesen. Das ist schade, ich verstehe nicht, wie man sein eigenes Buch derart schlecht vorlesen kann. Zudem ist die Aufzeichnungsqualität richtig mies: verrauscht und die Lautsärke ist schwankend (so als bewege sich der Sprecher zwischenzeitlich vom Mikro weg). Definitiv in keinem Studio aufgenommen. Ich nutze selbst ein Diktiergerät zur Aufzeichnung meiner Notizen - desssen Tonqualität ist wesentlich besser.

Ich kann nur vom Kauf des Hörbuchs abraten, ich denke nicht, dass ich es zu Ende hören werde. Vielleicht ist ja die deutsche Übersetzung von einem motivierterem Sprecher gesprochen.

Don't buy!

Honestly, this speaker is ridiculous. It sounds as if the everything is recorded in a kitchen or so. The voice is sometimes low than extrem laoud. I will buy the book.

Great content! Not so great recording

I do appreciate that the author is reading himself. But the audio quality is as if he is doing it in his garage using a 90s mobile phone.
The voice jumps , sometimes mid sentence when different takes were combined. It is as if different people are reading . You hear page shuffling and all kinds of distracting noises. Sometime he will turn away from the mic so the volume and sound changes. The problem is that these technicalities become a distraction. Which is a shame since what the audio book is about is so great

Bad narrator

Although the content seems interesting, the narrator seems to be putting himself and me to sleep. The volume of the narration changes from time to time and the flow of sentences is quite slow and sometimes disrupted. I had a hard time to keep on listening.

Pure self-healing

Radical honesty opens the mind and you will start to ask yourself, why telling the truth wasnt the only possibility avaliable to you before... Enjoy the process!
