This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
While some of the text waxes towards mindfulness, the need to incorporate mindfulness into work in particular sometimes tends to pigeon-hole the process and unnecessarily constrain her ideas making them seem a bit trivial. Weiss joins a growing group of authors, speakers and teachers who are trying to remind us that by re-infusing our lives with a sense of purpose and meaning, we will be better for it in every aspect of our lives. And collectively, that can make us better as a society.
Would you ever listen to anything by Leah Weiss again?
Yes. She is clearly a well-versed student of her discipline.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Caroline Slaughter?
I can't be too harsh on anyone who undertakes the demanding job of the narration of a book however, this narrator may have been better in a less scholarly setting than Weiss's book. She didn't seem to know the material well enough to impart the right tone oftentimes and the editor and producer who left the reference to a future page in the book "blank", should be reassigned.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Some very good viewpoints helped me want to continue to read the book, however in the end, I didn't finish it.
As an avid reader it is not often that I read a book that I want to email all my friends about. This is such a book. Stuffed with wisdom and actionable ideas for improving our lives.
I encourage you to give it a try. Whilst Leah Weiss’s academic credentials are impressive, sometimes I find academic work difficult to assimilate. However, her book goes deeper and touches the heart and yet full of ideas to contemplate and practice.
