Elizabeth Strout has inexplicably put together a story so complex, yet so simple. The life we lead, and how latter we ponder over the little things. There is so much to learn from Olive, her love for foe love, her curiosity (which can be a little nosy), her attitude towards life on the whole. What piqued my interest, was her ability to bounce back from loss, her reasoning about different situations, and her openess to accept. The book is just not about Olive but about all the old people in the neighborhood and their moments of introspection on the life they led. We all have the same ending, yet our lives are so vivid and different. the questions we forget in our busy lives are the ones we think we should have early on. I am take back so much from this labour of love, a feeling, the love, the joy and the hope that we seldom notice. This book of love will put you in touch with a part of you that is burried, and will surface an appreciation for people you may think you never had.

Gabby is a genious, she beautifully distils human nature and presents it in a way a child can understand. We are all wired the same and have the same access to universe. Why is it some thrive and some don't. It's because some have the password that is love and appreciation. The chapters in the book flow into each other explaining the power of trust, surrender, and appreciation. We knew the universe had your back, but this one gives you a deeper meaning of how the universe is working to help you to get to your highest self. During my listen (Gabby's narration speaks to your soul), I asked and universe answered. It was beautiful to know a light that connects to a light. To know that you are guided and never alone. The book introduces you to the meta physical world and I was awakened. Thank you for empowering us Gabby to know and be a Super Attractor. You are creating a universe with in a universe. Love.

Tara Westover's memoir will not leave me. Her detailed accounts, her dilemma, her ignorance, her constant conflict of what to be, how to be, when to be, where to be, oddly, makes sense and is relatable. We all love and admire family. Tara's story introduces us to love and family, like we have never known before. Thank you for the Education, Tara.
Julia Whelan's narration adds emotion making you laugh, cry, shout, hurt, and draw you back to the story until you are Educated.

Delightful listen!

The stories are thoughtfully compiled and it all comes together in the end. Neil Gaiman is a master storyteller. His narration breathed life into the characters and transported to the worlds old, and new.

Eliyahu is a genius storyteller. In this book he craftsfully weaves the professional challenges with the personal one. at every step when the protagonist is faced with a challenge you invariably think with him to solve the problems. I love it and will always come back to the book when I face a challenge. The narration adds to the personality of the book. Loved this audible listen.

A happy listen

The book is an all time classic. But I had never got myself to read it. When I saw it on Audible, immediately got it. What a delightful listen it has been. the narration is animated, funny and modulated to suit different characters. You will often catch yourself chuckle. It's an instant mood lifter. In love with the characters and the narrator.

A refreshing read

It's important to understand and know our Ikigai to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life. The book describes beautifully how we can adopt the Japanese ways to find our calling. It's a positive book and makes for many rereads.

Yuval Noah Harari, leaves no stone unturned in collating and bringing us this brief history. He touches on all aspects of sapiens - strength, emotion, food, clothing, shelter, living, culture, economy, technology, etc...! Every chapter has references and is easy to remember. The chapters are thought fully placed to give you a holistic perspective.

Derek Perkins narration is impeccable and makes this an absolute delightful listen. It certainly answered some of my many questions and left me curious to know more.

I work at a startup and this book opened my perspective in many ways than I could imagine. Patty's examples from her time at Netflix is relatable. We know we want to lay the foundation for a fresh culture, but often don't know how and from where. Patty makes it easy to understand why culture building can be daunting, yet exhilarating. The book dives in to the psyche of the employees and gives an approach in which you as a company can take to build your company. I'm sure I'll keep coming back to this book for guidance.

Atomic Habits is my first listen on Audible and I am glad I choose this one. it's amazing how listening can engrave some concepts in your head. James clear's remarkable narrative is simple and non-judgemental. This is important, more for this book, because the book is a reflection of what you might be doing and he says it's human in his signature way. There are no layers and it's simple to follow. The summary at the end of each chapter is helpful. This is certainly the books I will be coming back for to be a better version of myself.
