I don't want anyone to be put off by the negative review of the narrator given previously. Professor Hopkins is a very effective reader of this book, because he understands thoroughly what he is reading. The only really bad narrator I've experienced while a member of Audible was the actor who read "Lonesome Dove," who clearly didn't pay attention to the words most of the time and faked the intonation. The title of this book makes it sound a bit like a lightweight self-help book, but it's really a wonderful, clear exposition of emptiness and Buddhist philosophy, as one comes to expect from His Holiness. I highly recommend it.

First off I had no problem with the narrator, he did a good job on a very complex book.
The subject matter of this book is very complex and I would not recommend it to people who are not familier with buddhist concepts. However this book is a treasure of wisdom supported by analytical arguments which are very well structured and arranged.
This is THE best book I have read on this subject, you also REALLY have to concentrate while listening (not a light listen) . After listening (at least twice) you will have a lot of contemplation ahead of you...

This is hard to get your head around but I believe if we can then our world will be a much better place full of love and compassion

I listened to this for a good two hours or so but the narration is so drab that not a bit of it went in. The wonderful context and message was all lost by dreadfully dreary narration. The only audiobook I’ve ever not finished and I buy many Buddhist books. Sorry.
