Would you consider the audio edition of Finding Your Element to be better than the print version?
I'm not sure. This is the first time that I have felt the need for the printed version. Unfornately, as of date, the book is only available in hard back.
What other book might you compare Finding Your Element to and why?
This book has many parallels to many spiritual teachings, from which the author occasionally quotes, but it is your choice as to whether you see finding your element a spiritual jouney or merely a way of finding the right career path for yourself or a child.
Which scene was your favorite?
All the exercises are valuable tools and I loved the personal stories of how some people found their element.
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
What makes you happy? When are you at your happiest. This would have been suprisingly difficult to answer before completing just three of the exercises - now it just seems so obvious!
Any additional comments?
If you are like me, you are an audible subscriber because you prefer to listen to books whilst you are on the move. With this book however, if you really want to Find Your Element, you are going to have to sit down to listen and have certain tools available ( the author suggests these at the begining of the book) Because of this I went to buy the printed copy but I didn't like the hardback version as it can't be manipluated in the same way as a paper back. So it is a little frustrating to listen to questions asked and to do the exercises given whilst constantly pausing and rewinding. That said - that is what I am prepared to do as, having only completed three of the ten exercises I can already see a pattern and have noticed a shift in my behaviour as a result! Inpatient as I am, I listen to the book on the move and then when I come home, and I have time alone UNDISTURBED! (that is essential), I re-listen to the chapters and do the exersises.
My Headline stated that this book involved some work - that may just be me!. My personality type does not predispose me to sitting down with, pens, paper, coloured pens, vision boards etc.. but I strongly believe that the outcome will be worth that extra effort. No doubt, some people will not find this 'work' at all :-D

I picked up this title to see if it would be good for my niece who is entering her final year of high school and is finding the prospect of the future vague. Although Ken tells you out front that reading the book won't necessarily give you a clear vision he takes you through some exercises that help you explore yourself in his uniquely inspiring way. Although I listened to this book through Audible I'd recommend having a hard copy so that you can easily reference the exercises.
