Very mixed feelings

Any additional comments?

I bought " Dr. Lyn's" books in the past, and I returned them to Audible
I listen to this one and I have truly mixed feelings. I find very difficult to believe that this lady obtained Ph.D. in counselling, psychology or any other mental health profession. The professional vocabulary and knowledge is not there. This lady commits the basic mistakes that are described and corrected during the initial training of the mental health professionals.
I perceive this book and the rest of " Dr. Lyn" publications, as books written by someone, who underwent counselling therapy and is in a process of sorting out her problems by writing the series of self-help books. There is nothing wrong with this approach (except the fact that she presents herself as a professional).
These books are written with the great degree of naiveté; however, they are refreshing. They offer a common sense approach that appears quite sound. To "Dr.Lyn”: Ma'am, you are quite smart lady. You have a lot to offer for the average reader. Please do not stop writing.
Stop pretending that you are someone else, stop the process of self-publishing and self-recording your books, start working with a professional editor, hire the professional narrator. You have a great message to pass around. I am sure that you will be able to reach much greater audience when you come across as being an authentic person with life experience and unique techniques that you are utilizing in combating your problems and setbacks. Best luck to you.

Would you listen to The Magic of Detachment again? Why?

Yes and probably will too. The message is very comforting and takes a couple of times to take it all in.

What didn’t you like about Lyn Kelley’s performance?

I think it was the worst part of the experience. Her voice really isn't very good for this at all. Also there was some background noice at times.

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

It really made me think about codependeny and the importance of finding my own bordres.

Any additional comments?

Despite the reading I found this to be a very good book with a lot to think about!
