Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I recommend this book to EVERYONE alive on the planet today. I've read over 400 books in the past 3 years and this one is top of the top---THE BEST, no BS, just perspective that will completely change your life if you get it---the insight, inside out, not outside in.
What did you like best about this story?
insight and the dog chasing tail story. overall fantastic utilization of metaphors like the dog, the snow globe to illustrate the equation that _IS_ the story.
clarity = capacity - contamination
thinking about the "experience revolution" as the next wave of society
What about Jamie Smart’s performance did you like?
great voice, good pace, rarely do i hear an author that can bring such CLARITY to the performance / narration
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
clarity = capacity - contamination
feelings can reveal to you thoughts and beliefs that you may not be aware of at a conscious level
Any additional comments?
jamie, thank you for sharing your thoughts!

What would have made The Little Book of Clarity better?
Aaaaand I definitely just didn't like this one whatsoever. I have listened/read MANY self-help and mindfulness books. I have heard many great reviews about this one from a few people. It just fell short for me, unfortunately. The entire book, the author rehashes over and over the same principles he has in the previous chapters. It was recycled information that was littered with metaphors for every explanation. I simply didn't find it helpful.
Would you ever listen to anything by Jamie Smart again?
Yes! Jamie Smart has a great voice and I love how he uses different tones for different voices. I liked listening to him.
Which character – as performed by Jamie Smart – was your favorite?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The narrator was awesome and the author did have some good points, it just was rehashed out too many times for my liking.
Where there were some helpful elements to Smart's philosophy, I can't really remember much of them because I fee so frustrated with this book.
At the end of each chapter, there is a statement that additional content is available on his website. To access this, you submit an email address. I found this accessed me no meaningful additional content, but instead gained me spammy marketing emails from Smart and his business partners.
I understand that this sort of thing is common in his industry, but as someone who claims to be selling clarity (I think in reality, he is merely selling himself), filling my inbox with spam is not a very honourable way to achieve this.
I definitely would not return to this author because I believe this speaks poorly to his integrity, somewhat undermining his philosophies on living a life of clarity. Sorry.

I listen and read quite a few different books. When it comes to clarity I can sum up my opinion by saying 'I don't get it'. It seems unstructured and I just can't work out any logic from the ramblings. I have to admit that I kept thinking that it would get better but it just never did. I gave up around an hour before the end of the book as I have given it plenty of time already. I maybe different to everyone else and this is obviously a personal opinion but it wasn't for me at all.
