One of the best I've purchased.
I've listened to more than 50 audio books on spirituality, Buddhism, enlightenment, awakening etc., and this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review.
The author offers many great metaphors and stories to help the listener really understand the concepts discussed. I can already see how easy it 'could be' to change my behaviour, my perception and my experience of the life that flows through and around me - concepts I'm looking forward to playing with from this moment on.
In summary then, this audiobook offers many of the concepts and ideas that others do, but in a way that helps the listener to think about how he / she can apply them in a practical way to day-to-day life situations, and in turn step that much closer towards awakening.

Not for me
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
If they were new to the spiritual journey then perhaps they would find it more engaging, there wasn't much I haven't read elsewhere, but then I guess it's all the same kind of information just repackaged, it's about finding what resonates for you. This didn't for me.
Would you ever listen to anything by Michael A. Singer again?
Possibly. I do find that he goes into explanations to the nth degree when I understood what he meant from his first explanation.
What aspect of Peter Berkrot’s performance might you have changed?
I did not find the narrative voice engaging, I found myself drifting off.
Was The Untethered Soul worth the listening time?
I gave up after about 4 chapters as I couldn't keep engaged. Which is a shame because the subject matter is excellent. Just that it didnt engage me.
Any additional comments?
Worth a try at listening to it, many people have found this an inspiring book, but it wasn't for me

Okay, I love Tolle, Dyer, Chodron, Chopra, Ruiz, Byron Katie, and many others, and that won't change. But for the clearest explanation of how to disregard that 'nut' running commentary in my head, this book wins hands down. It is funny, I mean oh so, 'oh my goodness of course' belly laugh funny, and sensible and simple. I love simple. If you really want to understand who 'you' are...the real you behind the insanity, this is a great book. I found the narrator to be fine, not perfect but I had no problem listening to him. Listened all the way through first day and started over.

Amazing Content, Awful Sound
What did you love best about The Untethered Soul?
Amazing content. The book really ties together a lot of spiritual concepts and just says it how it is. I've read a lot in this genre and am hearing things elucidated like never before. I LOVE the description of the energy waves and the Dao as well as the description of the stuck energy in the heart. I've experienced this phenomenon in Vipassana meditation but it was never explained as plainly/nicely as this.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Berkrot?
Peter's voice is fine, but he starts each sentence with a burst and then trails off at the end of each sentence. I'm listening on quality Beats speakers so it's not my system. The result is that the volume has to be turned up louder to hear the end of the sentence, and it makes the beginning part way too loud. To the mixing/mastering engineer: please USE A COMPRESSOR! It's maddening.
