What made the experience of listening to Becoming Magic the most enjoyable?
I enjoy listening to different approaches to using law of attraction, and this author has obviously mastered her own way.
I enjoyed some of the unique methods taught, which were fun to do.
Has Becoming Magic put you off other books in this genre?
No, I prefer other L of A authors
How could the performance have been better?
The narrator sounded like she was reading a story to 5 year olds, not delivering a powerful self help book to adults.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Snap back was interesting
Any additional comments?
I have now listened to all 3 Magic books. I didn't like the arrogance of the author in her scathing opinion of other L of A authors, however, this was obviously from her own frustrations and realisation of her own effective approach.
About her approach. It is probably most useful for people who are largely sorted financially and emotionally and just want a more fun and interesting life.
For anyone who is in a desperate situation in need of real guidance for powerful and realistic help today, I don't recommend this book.
Her process is for those who aren't in a hurry, and have little to lose 'giving it a go'
For example, she suggests you take your focus on what you don't want and to 'trust' the Universe will bring what you need and to get on with other things. Try telling that to someone with the bailiffs knocking at their door. Unrealistic.
A good book though and glad I listened to all 3

I have read all the recommended books Think and Grow Rich, The Attractor Factor, The Law of Attraction etc etc etc. I did as I was told....
Something was missing, it was sort of happening but my gut feeling was telling me that something was missing in me. Why couldn't I get it right. Why did sometimes it go so very wrong? They make it sound as is we should all just be able to just do it.
So back I went to Amazon, no more books to read or listen to that said anything different. It had to be me. I have had experience of NLP in the past with great results so I started down that road again. Did I have limiting beliefs that were holding me back? I made an appointment in 3 days time. Meanwhile I thought why not listen to these Magic books, they are cheap and something to listen to for the next couple of days. I downloaded all three!!!! WOW I was not expecting that.....
They make sense of all the previous books. Once I had listened to Becoming Magic I understood completely what I needed to do first, and that also included not listening to Doing Magic. I felt normal and capable of starting the process with practical doable guidance. Whether you are an old hand at this or a complete beginner it makes no difference this first book is a little treasure. The narrator has a beautiful clear voice which is easy and a pleasure to listen to. This book puts the common sense back into this thing we are all able to do. It answered all of my questions. Sometimes you get more than you pay for!!

In the end I enjoyed the last few chapters. The first 7 chapters were literally about nothing. They were all just lead up about what the author was going to tell you. It was a little frustrating and I almost gave up. SERIOUSLY I bought another book and was about to switch when I decided to give it one more chapter. AND yes, she finally got to it. It was interesting and pleasant and original. I'm on the fence about buying the next book. I think ultimately I'll learn something but is it worth the frustration?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I am a newbie to this LoA and manifestation stuff, and have been reading a variety of self-proclaimed experts on it. This is the only one that sounds like the real deal, not least because it is a fraction of the cost of online courses and programs. The author does spend what seems to be an inordinate amount of time saying what her book isn't, and I eventually wondered if she would tell me what her book was. It gets better and clearer after the first read/listen.
Who was your favorite character and why?
What does Fiona Hardingham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She has a clear, crisp reading style that is perfect for this book. She reads each word as if it matters.
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
If you aren't working to change something in your life that you don't like, you shouldn't think about it at all.
Any additional comments?
Don't rush to get the second volume after getting this one. There is plenty of useful information in here. I have both of her audiobooks and all three of the books in the series, but this is the one that I keep coming back to. (When will volume 3 be recorded? I want it!)
