"I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast dot com."
Generally speaking this was an excellent self-development book. Not self help notice but self development. The reader, narrator was a good match and his timing and delivery was superb. A very soothing, trustworthy voice along with (sorry for the pun, Well no I am not and its not quite a pun...) Authentic material.
The author takes the individual reader, listener on a journey of self through Serpent mind, Wolf mind, Buffalo mind, and Eagle mind. I count 4 there but the text refers to "5 minds". It wouldn't be the first time I've misplaced or lost one of my minds....alas I have such bad jokes.
However, this excellent journey was spoiled for me in the Eagle mind section, shortly into Audible Chapter 37. Did the narrator go on an ad lib rant? Did an editor coerce the author to include extraneous material? Did the author somehow lose his own plot? From 36 chapters of inner personal work, suddenly comes a flood of Must, Should and contradictory mumbo jumbo ...
Then along the end of Chapter 39 that line wrapped up and Chapter 40 had me listening again to the book I had been listening to. The transitions were quite abrupt to me though the words all flowed. It was clearly intentional material but a tragedy to have included it.
In my opinion.
Your feelings as a reader may vary and that's the beauty - You are you. But, if you find a sudden "huh...what..." feeling check your progress and if you are in that chapter 37-39 range, just skip on to chapter 40. You won't miss anything.
If the author excised those chapters, I'd amend my review to 5 stars, but with them, its a stretch to give 3 stars from me.
The narrator and narration were 5 solid stars.

What made the experience of listening to Spirit Paths the most enjoyable?
Gerry covers a lot of ground and obviously has a wealth of wisdom to impart. He covers so many topics, and this makes it an audio to listen to time and again. Each time you will pick up some new and useful information, and gain more understanding of the the self.
Who was your favorite character and why?
This is a self-help audio, so there was no particular character, but I learnt a lot about animal symbolism.
Which character – as performed by Charles Henderson Norman – was your favorite?
Chares Norman is an excellent narrator, with a deep clear voice that I enjoyed listening to.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Gerry talked about past lives that I happen to be studying at the moment, which proved interesting and useful.
Any additional comments?
The author clearly has a lifetime of wisdom and is an excellent teacher.
