Transformative!

What did you love best about The Art of Possibility?

This book opened my thoughts, feelings, and made me feel like I could reinvent my life for the better. Mostly, the book stirred my joy and excitement!


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Art of Possibility?

There are so many memorable moments in this book. There is so much to learn and take in, I am still processing what I have learned and trying to apply it to my life. But, I think the most memorable practices in their teachings are "It's all invented" and "Giving an A" because these were the first and easiest for me to put into practice, and have made a positive impact.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I wanted to savor it over a few days. And I am reading it again.


Any additional comments?

This book is beautifully produced and read by the authors. Each practice is underscored by classical music, great storytelling, and believable, authentic narrations by both authors.

Stand Out Magnificent!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Possibility to be better than the print version?

Yes. Both authors bring their own story and personalities to life as well as the music in this audiobook, tells so much of the story and makes it real. I couldn't imagine how it could be so engaging in print. If you have it in print, catch the wow factor with the audio!


What does Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Their personalities, their inflections and tonality brings the examples to present time and real life. They became my companions and advisors through out the book.


What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Art of Possibility?

The Practices are brilliant. I did take some notes on my iPhone as I listened. I couldn't help but want to capture the action steps they give to engage in "the practice".


Any additional comments?

This one climbed it's way right to my top favorite! What a joy to listen to and the perspective and information has me feeling as though I have lifted or elevated my own thinking and actions! (with more to come as I further apply what I've learned ;)
