Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The Seat of the Soul has sold millions of copies around the globe and is a number-one New York Times best seller. This fully updated edition contains celebratory prefaces by Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou, a new foreword by the author, as well as an extensive study guide to help listeners find deeper meaning and fulfillment in their lives.

This iconic book encourages you to become the authority in your own life. It will change the way you see the world, interact with other people, and understand your own actions and motivations. In it, Gary Zukav takes you on a penetrating exploration of the new phase that humanity has entered: one where harmony, cooperation, sharing and reverence for life become more important than the ability to manipulate and control. Using his scientist’s eye and philosopher’s heart, Zukav shows us how to participate fully in this evolution, enlivening our everyday activities and all our relationships with meaning and purpose.

Must Read!

One of the best books I have read. The author explains the deepest truths of our evolution and journey with such ease. Anyone on a journey to soul search would cherish this book. The gems of wisdom and clarity mentioned in the book are worth referring to again and again. Thank you Gary Zukav.

I had so many positive awakenings and changes

The Seat of the Soul is so well known as a cover. I've seen it so many times but never picked it up before. My sister sent me the book as a present in March 2020 as I have been struggling with depression and anxiety, as my soul has been calling me to become my true self and I've found the transition exhausting and emotional - I was making it harder than it needed to be.

I started to read it and quickly downloaded the audiobook as I craved to hear Oprah and Maya say their words in their voices and I was not disappointed!

I've replayed the Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou prefaces so many times!

The lessons learnt from this book really struck a chord and I've listened to it up numerous times while pottering at home. Highly recommend and hope you are moved by it like I was and still am.

Excellent read, but a little outdated..

I really enjoyed this book, but I could not believe how outdated and offensive some of the language was. It is supposed to have been reviewed for its 25th year anniversary, but it still uses language as 'yellow people' and says things like casual sex can lead to being infected by AIDS. Surely these should have been edited? This is why I did not give 5 stars, as it does distract from the quality of the teachings and the message the book is trying to convey. But I did like the general philosophy and especially the study guide, which does not seem to come with a pdf option attached to the audiobook.. I would still recommend it to those who have spiritual inclination towards understanding the soul connection.

Useful and insightful

Great in essence but somewhat repetitive. Maybe it needs to be like that to apply the knowledge. Slowing down the narrative speed helped too.

Sorry but complete mush

I tried to listen to this but it was meaningless drivel. Then as soon as religious reference is made I switch off as I would rather listen to stories about unicorns.
Shame on those celebrities marking this as a revolutionary book. It simply isn’t.

So unclear

I just can’t get my head around what Gary is saying. It reads like a science textbook on the soul.

This book should be a foundational reference text

Each chapter examines the layers that make up who we are. This is one of the most complete introductory books of its kind and I would recommend it to anyone starting a journey of self discovery.

This book connect to yourself

Narrator tone of the voice was strong which sometimes forced to take break rather than continuing.
