A true teacher.

What made the experience of listening to A Life Worth Breathing the most enjoyable?

Max Strom's voice is incredible. It made listening very enjoyable.

The philosophy of yoga was in there -- but not disguised with modern academic-speak. While I understand those who choose to use it -- it certainly doesn't make me feel that I am diving into myself when I have to turn on my academic brain to understand that meaning.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Life Worth Breathing?

At one point I remember he paused, took a breath and sighed. I love that they left that in.

What does Max Strom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I already said this... but his voice. I will purchase his other books just to hear his voice again.

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

No. I bought this book to aid me on my spiritual journey. This was a book I would listen to bit by bit and digest it. I will listen to it over and over again as well. It is a treasure.

Any additional comments?

This is a rare find.
I feel blessed to have found it.

A concise summary of how to live a blissful and truly fulfilled life...

After reading this book, I decided to purchase several copies to give as a gift to all of my friends for Christmas. This is a very well written book - simple, concise with so much depth and humility from the author. It uses yoga and breathing as a tool to achieve a happy, healthy and fulfilled life that not only benefit yourself but everyone around you, and eventually the world. I've been practicing yoga for a little over a year, read several books on yoga including the classics, and I place this book in my top five favorites. I believe that this book given the chance can deeply touch the lives of many and encourage a spiritually based wellness lifestyle that can help change the world.

This a book to listen to over and over

If you could sum up A Life Worth Breathing in three words, what would they be?

Whenever you need to focus your meaning in life, this book will direct to in the right direction! As a Yoga teacher, I constantly remind my students to Breath and take deeper and longer breaths.

This book in audio is relaxing to listen to, and the message is true.

Thank you for coming into my life!!

Inspiring!

Would you consider the audio edition of A Life Worth Breathing to be better than the print version?

I would highly recommend listening to Strom's reading of his book, 'A life worth breathing' if you're performing yoga for the mental and spiritual benefits as well as physical. This book helped me connect with the sense of purpose that focusing on the now during yoga, as well as life, provided me. It's a quick listen, I got through it in a week, listening about an hour a day on my headphones while I was getting other things done.

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

As I am new to this discipline...

...I've known of Yoga for years. However, I wasn't sure if it could fit within my "Christian" belief system. I took a chance on "Max Storm" and in my humble opinion I chose well.

His presentation seems so authentic and attentive. This was one of the most enjoyable books that I have had the pleasure to listen to.

So, I bought its hard and softcover companions because I loved it so much...like to highlight in the softcovers and keep the hardcovers clean. Only certain books get that distinction within my personal little library.

If you're on the fence about the topic of Yoga particularly if you're of the Christian persuasion - give this book a try. I would be very surprised if you could not, at the very least, glean a bit of encouragement from its content. Happy listening/reading to you. :-)
