Interesting, but difficult to grasp
This narrative is the perfect approach to spirituality, using the scientific approach of direct experience. However, this also makes it more difficult to grasp. I have to listen to it again to fully appreciate it. He talks too fast, bit luckily Audible has an option to reduce the playing speed.
Characters get too annoying, story too long-winded
I liked the first part of the series, the second and third were already less, and that the continues with this book. The characters are too annoying in their actions, and the story is too long for little going on.
Clashing with my beliefs, and hence an eye-opener
The narrator succeeds in making me question my beliefs about love, spiritual growth and the existence of a God. I will need to listen to it again to form an opinion on the contents, which by itself states that whatever your opinion on it is, it's well worth listening!
No special things, no real food for thought, just entertaining stories of an entertaining man.
Best book on emotions
I was looking for a book to help me increase my empathy. This book certainly helped in that, but the hidden gem inside that I didn't expect were the chapters in the beginning on emotions. What are they, and what should we do with them. Those were an eye opener, and those chapters (2 and 3) alone are worth reading the book. The subsequent chapters are decent, but can be a bit long for the amount of information they convey.

The ideas of the universe having your back is nice, and well worded by Gabe. It's pleasant to listen to. In every chapter she describes a technique in several steps, which makes it look very practical and well defined, but then the steps themselves are often fluffy and vague.
Interesting bits interchanged with generalities
Some parts of the book were really eye opening, other parts were either repetitive, cliche or too theoretical. The good parts are worth the listen though, so I do recommend to listen to this book. The audio quality of the reading is mediocre.
