You probably already know each of the concepts and talking points presented in this well written book, but rather than being a simple review the book offers a "big picture" view. To me the material was organized in such a compelling and intelligent way that it transcends many of the more piecemeal offerings available. Charles is able to weave together what is wrong with the way we are living in the world and what needs to be done to fix the problem beautifully.
Be prepared--this is not an easy listen. It can become overwhelming to have all the woes of the world laid neatly at your feet. And yes, occasionally the book becomes the "blame game". It liberally spreads the blame around and in doing so it brings many of our personal choices under scrutiny. You will find yourself rethinking simple decisions and choices you make each day. It is necessary and humbling to see how a myriad of small things are compounded into big problems with a global impact.
I thought Charles did a good job with the narration. However, several friends found his tone and manner off putting. I agree that his speaking style takes a bit of time to settle into--but he speaks with passion and laughing sarcasm very effectively.
This is a book that needs to be heard and acted upon. Well worth the time.

Would you consider the audio edition of Harmony to be better than the print version?
What did you like best about this story?
The message of unity in the physical and spiritual world, supported by HRH's deep knowledge of history, art, archeology and philosophy.
What does Charles, HRH The Prince of Wales bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Because it is read by the author, his passion for the subject comes through and it feels like a conversation. Also, he has a fabulous accent.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The whole thing! I have listened 3 times now.
Any additional comments?
HRH, The Prince of Wales has demonstrated himself to be a thoughtful, creative and innovative thinker. It is heartening to think that someone with such an outlook and such insight will be king of the British Commonwealth one day.
