It's hard to tell from the sample where this book is going. The narrator is good, and shows personality when he talks. However, most all the talk is just quotes from the bible. This audio book lacks substance, and doesn't tell me anything new or original. I was rather disappointed that I used a credit for it. I give it two stars since the narrator reads well.

Dr. Don Colbert's "Deadly Emotions" would be a wise investment by anyone who cares for others, whether in counseling, or compassion-based ministry. The examples of people who suffered--all tragically, some terminally--touched me deeply and created a thirst for further research. How emotions impact human lives is something I see and sense on a daily basis. I recommend Dr. Colbert's book to anyone who genuinely cares for others!
Having looked at the description, I expected this book to be a pragmatic and useful guide to how to deal with emotions.
Whilst it does have some useful information on emotions, for me, it contains too many biblical references and home-spun advice.
As it is written by a doctor, I was expecting the advice to have a scientific leaning, but faith in god seems to be the way forward.
