What did you like best about Thoughts Without a Thinker? What did you like least?
Dr. Epstein's writing is excellent and his skillful account of the topic at hand is obvious. I have no doubt that this would make for a fine traditional book read. As an audiobook, however, his presentation of the material severely diminished its effectiveness. The writer's narration sounded unenthusiastic and dull and I was unable to complete listening to the book.
Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Epstein again?
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mark Epstein?
A professional narrator.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes definitely! Mark Epstein was one of the first buddhism teachers I discovered and his psychology background intrigued me when I was a young college student. The first book I read was Going on Being, and since then I've learned so much about meditation and buddhism and I reread that book recently and realized how he was the first one I read that started me on this path. I am continuing my path with all of his books on audio now. This one, Thoughts without a thinker, is my favorite!
What other book might you compare Thoughts Without a Thinker to and why?
It's a stand alone book.
What about Mark Epstein’s performance did you like?
That he reads it, that he makes it feel like you are there talking with him.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes! And I have more than once.
