Inspirational

I have started applying methods that I learned into new habits. These new habits have profoundly changed my life in a meaningful way. Deep breathing, eating once a day no processed foods, cold pool 50 degree water 15 min a day and meditation

Boring and trite

Keeps repeating itself. Can't complete it. Just a slog. Just read a lululemon bag and save yourself twenty dollars and 6 hours

Humphrey with this book.

This amazing Life lesson, this book teaches. And with Humphrey Bowers reading this book he make you feel like you are in the conversation with the characters of the Fable.
Not my first audiobook off Humphrey. But this is first time listening of Robin Shama book and I look forward listening more of he's books.

Fantastic listen! Great lessons and great narrator

A classic book filled with great insight in a way that captivates your attention throughout the novel and leaves the lessons in a short fable that is easy to remember. Definitely a must listen and loved the narrator.

Bad writing, mediocre content.

To be fair, there are some valuable insights in this book.
But not a lot. And those insights, that are there, can be found elsewhere in a much better format (see last paragraph below).
So, the pain of listening to an awfully written "story", to find a small nugget of content every other hour, is simply too much for my sensitive ears...

Here are the details:
This piece of literature can hardly be classified as a "story".
The enlightened ex-lawyer, who is now the monk, tells his former colleague the lessons he has learned in the Himalaya. But the lessons are basically ordinary advise you can find in any productivity or self-development guidebook. Nothing special about them. Nonetheless, to add some authority to these lessons, the monk starts every second statement with something like "As the ancient monks in the Himalaya have known for ages and passed on from generation to generblablabla... - this is the advise I want to give to you...". Im like 40% done and I heard this intro literally a hundred times...
The former colleague, on the other hand, is the eager student, who wants to learn more about what the monk has to tell. His contributions to the conversations are nothing more than some variations of "Tell me more!", "This is interesting!", "I've never heard something like that before!".

Cheap.

You know, it's like drawing a rectangle and and a triangle on top of it and calling that a house. Yes, technically it's a drawing of a house. But if you try harder just a tiny fraction, you can improve your drawing dramatically. And if you'd erase only half an inch of one of these lines, it's not even a drawing of a house anymore.
Same with that story. Yes, technically, it's a story, but only half an inch away from being a pamphlet.
I simply don't understand, why the author chose to write a "story" like this. An abstract or guidebook would have been the better choice. And instead of listening to 6 hrs of bad storytelling, I'd have the core content in 20 minutes and would be happy with what I've learned.

My advise is this: Read "The 7 habits of highly effective people", by Stephen Covey. At least 3 of the 7 principles are the same in both books (as I said, I didn't finish the Ferrari-Monk yet). But Covey can convince without any reference to the spiritual world and has better real-life examples and advise.
Case closed.

Simple Language

The fable is told in simple english, which can be considered a feature. The key points of the book are strongly simplified, maybe sometimes too much. Still I would recommend this book as a simple and easy-to-follow introduction to life philosophy.
