Pema is simply one of the greatest minds of our time. This audio covers some of her older material, but expands into some new thoughts. I have most of her other audio books and this is by far...the best recording I have heard! There isn't the background noise or poor quality that is found in some of the other audio books. If you are thinking of buying any of her work or if you are new to her work then buy this one first. If you have her other work then buy it for the simply for the great quality! Lots of tools in this also. It is quite concise and great clarity on all levels. Thank you have given so much needed wisdom.

A lot of silence

What would have made Awakening Love better?

I appreciate listening to lectures, but not when it is titled as a book on tape. A very large portion of this "book on tape" are periods of silent meditation. While I appreciate the importance of silence, I feel like it is pretty misleading to list the length of this title. If I had known it was a series of lectures with meditation, I would not have bought it. I wish Pema would put her lectures online as podcasts like most teachers do, and save paid audiobooks for actual written content that has been worked on and edited. I am much happier with my Tara Brach books, which go into much more depth on the same topics.

Would you recommend Awakening Love to your friends? Why or why not?


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

again, there wasn't a narrator, there was a speaker giving a talk, which is a very different experience. I would have preferred narration.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

accurate material
