A daily guide for authentic living in hard times, The Book of Awakening is a book to keep your head high, your heart open, and your feet on the ground. “It is true,” Nepo writes, “If you can’t see what you’re looking for, see what’s there. It is enough".

I wish someone besides the author were performing.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes, it's time well spent...though I wish I were reading it instead of listening to it.
What other book might you compare The Book of Awakening to and why?
Reminded me a bit of a daily wisdom book I like by Hugh Prather.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mark Nepo?
Anyone who could make it sound more conversational. His delivery is so Jack Handy on a sugar buzz I have a hard time actually hearing what he's saying. I wish I'd bought the book to read instead of listen.
Did The Book of Awakening inspire you to do anything?
Yes. It is well written, full of wisdom.

Any additional comments?
I am not sure what I was expecting from this audiobook but it certainly wasn't what I found... I started listening to it and after the first 10 minutes I was about to turn the thing off and write this purchase off. I am so glad I didn't!! I stuck to it and found... revelation! Every day a story, a quote, a fable... every day the going deeper into the meaning of those... and every day a message, a lesson, a knowledge that cuts through the barriers and goes straight to your heart.
There are so many jewels in this audio book! They are small and clear and bright... things that, after you listen to them, you know you already knew them but for some reason you were never aware of the knowing. Beautifully narrated by the author and so inspirational that temporarily made a poet out of me.
I really recommend this book!
