I attended a Wayne Dyer lecture last year and he spent alot of time talking about Anita's story. I got home and watched her youtube interviews and couldn't wait to get the book. I purchased the Kindle edition and read it while waiting for an audiobook. I do not write reviews on books, but I feel this is some of the most important work to come out in a long time. Anyone wanting to understand and discover who and what we really are, and the root cause of our problems need to read this book. Anita simplifies a very complex concept, and masterfully tells of the pain and discovery she experienced in her life. Her explanation of parallel lives and the reason we think in successive lives is masterfully done. I have read this and now listened 3 times. This has become a staple of my collection.

Would you listen to Dying to Be Me again? Why?
Yes, but only the part about her description of her near death experience. I found the rest of the book to be preachy and full of platitudes.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Anita was pretty much the only character.
Have you listened to any of Anita Moorjani’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No I haven't.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Overall this is well worth getting. Anita's beautiful description of her near death experience alone is worth buying it for. I thought it was weird that so many reviews mentioned her exception command of the English language, but as I listened I found myself appreciating it as well. Her description of the event is incredible. The rest of the book was too vague, new age, and full of platitudes for me, but the first half more than made up for that. This is well worth getting.

Would you try another book written by Anita Moorjani or narrated by Anita Moorjani?
I doubt if I would listen to another of Anita's books. Although the subject is out of this world interesting, I got bored quite quickly along the way.
I cannot put my finger on why I find the book tedious but I suspect that I have read too many self help books over the years and when I heard Wayne Dwyer in the foreword my heart sank...
What was most disappointing about Anita Moorjani’s story?
It was just too long. All Anita had to say could in my opinion have been said in half the time or less.
What aspect of Anita Moorjani’s performance might you have changed?
I am sure Anita Moorjani performs really good. She just did not catch my heart - but I stayed with her to the end and I am grateful for the story she has told.

While I found a couple of small gems in this book, and enjoyed the description of the author's life before and during her illness, I found the main theme and her Audible narration irritating and was unable to finish listening. This was because she is not an actor and so the reading is flat to me. Also, I found her assumptions based on her experience and observations untenable and ultimately circular.
Apart from being an amazing personal story it comes with such valuable insights. Great lessons from the infinite about our magnificence and the wonder of our human experience.
