Description

Presenting 12 breakthrough practices for bringing creativity into all human endeavors, The Art of Possibility is the dynamic product of an extraordinary partnership. The Art of Possibility combines Benjamin Zander's experience as conductor of the Boston Philharmonic and his talent as a teacher and communicator with psychotherapist Rosamund Stone Zander's genius for designing innovative paradigms for personal and professional fulfillment. 

The authors' harmoniously interwoven perspectives provide a deep sense of the powerful role that the notion of possibility can play in every aspect of life. Through uplifting stories, parables, and personal anecdotes, the Zanders invite us to become passionate communicators, leaders, and performers whose lives radiate possibility into the world.

Transformative!

What did you love best about The Art of Possibility?

This book opened my thoughts, feelings, and made me feel like I could reinvent my life for the better. Mostly, the book stirred my joy and excitement!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Art of Possibility?

There are so many memorable moments in this book. There is so much to learn and take in, I am still processing what I have learned and trying to apply it to my life. But, I think the most memorable practices in their teachings are "It's all invented" and "Giving an A" because these were the first and easiest for me to put into practice, and have made a positive impact.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I wanted to savor it over a few days. And I am reading it again.

Any additional comments?

This book is beautifully produced and read by the authors. Each practice is underscored by classical music, great storytelling, and believable, authentic narrations by both authors.

Inspiring

Truly an inspiring book! The author's insights into motivating and productively interacting with other people helped me think about social situations in an entirely new light. The authors do a very good job narrating their own work, and the bits of classical music add a wonderful touch.

Always leaves me with a reason to smile.

Life can always be hard, frustrating or difficult. I listened to this book over several weeks and each time I ended a session, I had a reason to smile. It is a constant reminder that, in every situation, there is always possibility and that your outlook is your choice.

Stand Out Magnificent!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Possibility to be better than the print version?

Yes. Both authors bring their own story and personalities to life as well as the music in this audiobook, tells so much of the story and makes it real. I couldn't imagine how it could be so engaging in print. If you have it in print, catch the wow factor with the audio!

What does Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Their personalities, their inflections and tonality brings the examples to present time and real life. They became my companions and advisors through out the book.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Art of Possibility?

The Practices are brilliant. I did take some notes on my iPhone as I listened. I couldn't help but want to capture the action steps they give to engage in "the practice".

Any additional comments?

This one climbed it's way right to my top favorite! What a joy to listen to and the perspective and information has me feeling as though I have lifted or elevated my own thinking and actions! (with more to come as I further apply what I've learned ;)

Make it this one!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Possibility to be better than the print version?

If you only hear one audiobook this year, make it this one. And, yes, listen to it. Because Ben Zander is the conductor of the Boston Philharmonic, many of their examples are based on musical metaphors, and to miss that is to lose out on some of the beauty and generosity of the book. Plus, Mr Zander and his wife are uncommonly good narrators probably because they have taught this material so often in public.

What did you learn from The Art of Possibility that you would use in your daily life?

When I am conscious of my role as the filter and framer of my own reality, it becomes simpler to alter what I see and experience. This is not airy-fairy, ceiling-surfing, It's a design for practical acceptance of life as it is. Instead of being tedious and colorless, however, this island of "what is" opens into the surrounding sea of unlimited possibility. This is where art and commerce are one, where passion and precision are one, and where you and I are one.

I listened straight through

The stories of humanity, grace and hope, along with the music and the voices of the authors, stirred a variety of emotions in my heart & spirit in such a unique way. I am transformed for having listened and look forward to listening to it again and again. The message in this book is a gift and the experience in audio book format a special treat!

Beautiful in the spoken and unspoken

As with any great book that is actually useful, getting the full impact out of this one will take focus, conscientiousness, and hard work over time. I plan to buy the paperback of this book, and then listen to it again, allowing the gifted and accomplished writers (gifted both in accomplishment and in their delivery in this recording) to walk me through the pages as I highlight and take notes. You will brim with ideas you can implement in the immediate, and also be gifted the tools to structure a different future mindset.

Inspiring thoughts and approaches

Halten Sie die Hörbuch-Ausgabe von The Art of Possibility für besser als das Buch?

I enjoyed listening to this audio book.

I decided to buy it after I had seen the very inspiring TED talk by Benjamin Zander on classical music's potential to inspire "happy shining eyes". If you've seen the TED talk you will find refind some of the stories and metaphors familiar.

The book is a cooperation by Mr. Zander and his wife Rosamund Stone Zander. Both read chapters covering different "practices" that can be applied to approach life in a more positive and open way vs. in a spirit of competitiveness and scarcity.

The spirit of the book is very upbeat. It is very well produced. I enjoyed listening to it and I particularly loved the insertion of classical music pieces at relevant times. (I might be a little bit biased though as I am a big classical music and Mahler fan)

The book is certainly not as paradigm-shifting as other (business) classics as the 7 habits of highly effective people might be for example, however, I found myself already applying some of their practices ("like giving the A") in a professional context as a manager of small teams in the business world and can highly recommend the book as a basis for some reflective walks in the park to reconsider some existing beliefs that we might have.

Welcher Moment von The Art of Possibility ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

Some of the stories are truly remarkable and show the impact we as people can have if we have the openness and willingness to go out there and try to do new things.

Welche Szene hat Ihnen am besten gefallen?

I loved the East London School story.

Gab es im Hörbuch einen Moment, der Sie ganz besonders berührt hat?

The chopin piece and the exercise that came with it.
