Publisher's Summary

Modern life can seem like being lost in a jungle. With distractions and dangers emerging from every direction, it's easy to lose focus. Over time, we lose touch with one of our most powerful, purposeful, God-given attributes - the desire to be fruitful and multiply, what Bishop T. D. Jakes calls our "instinct for increase".
Combining historical, cultural, and personal examples with biblical insights, in Instinct Bishop Jakes outlines how to rediscover your natural aptitudes and reclaim the wisdom of your past experiences. When attuned to divinely inspired instincts, you will become in sync with the opportunities life presents and discover a fresh abundance of resources. Knowing when to close a deal, when to take a risk, and when to listen to your heart will become possible when you're in touch with the instincts that God gave you.
Bishop T. D. Jakes - iconic preacher, best-selling author, and entrepreneur - has inspired millions of people around the world. Here he writes from the peak of his personal power about how to experience the satisfaction of a life well lived. If you long to conquer the jungles of life, Instinct offers the personal and professional tools needed to navigate your course successfully and according to God's design.

Wise Words Delivered Poorly!

Would you consider the audio edition of Instinct to be better than the print version?

Not at all. The narrator did absolutely no justice to the author and his words. I would have preferred to hear Jakes' voice in delivering these words, rather than the chosen narrator. Ezra's rhythm pales in comparison to Jakes' making the delivery of such complex, nuanced and powerful insights far less impactful than it should have been. I had to purchase the Kindle (print) edition to get the most of the message. Audio did not contribute in any way to my enjoyment of the text and the intended lessons.


Would you be willing to try another one of Ezra Knight’s performances?

Initially I thought "NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT"!!! Then I had to concede that he simply doesn't have a rhythm similar to Jakes' resulting in a HUGE mismatch in delivery of this kind of content. His voice is just fine and perhaps wouldn't be problematic with some other text.

Book info great, Narrator??? Not so much!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend the content. Great ideas and info.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ezra Knight?

Anybody!!! Ezras' delivery was poor. Choppy!!! As though he never picked the book up to practice before it was time to read it. I had to keep coming back to it, taking in bits at a time. It was painful to listen to. I only finished because the content was wonderful.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No but I had an extreme reaction to the narrator. His choppy voice was just sooo irritating!! Nothing smooth or flowing about it.


Any additional comments?

Listen to the preview before downloading to be sure you can tolerate Ezra's voice for 6 hours!!
