A must-read classic
This is a must-read Christian classic which both changed my life and is still changing my life; I have listened to it many times, but it is also well worth savoring the written word, not just the spoken. This was my introduction to John Piper, as it has been for many people. Can't recommend it enough; this is not a platitude about being "happy"--joyful, yes, but a deep-filled joy, praise and gratitude that is joy-filled, even, and especially, in the midst of suffering--one of the many paradoxes of the Gospel of the Jesus Christ. I have an immense and deep respect for John Piper. Well worth owning as an audiobook so you can listen to it during a long car drive.

Just the best book ever. You can read or hear this again and again and you learn more each time and are challenged anew each time.

Highly Recommended
This is one of those classic books that make a difference to the world, perhaps like “Pilgrims Progress”, or “Mere Christianity”, and anyone who has not read it and applied its teaching is missing out.

The main thrust of this book is that God is most glorified in me when I am most satisfied in Him. That everything we do as Christians needs to be motivated by our desire to seek pleasure in God, and in doing so, we will fulfill the requirements that God has placed on us. Christian living is not about emphasizing our duties as Christians, or for the sake of being obedient, but for the sake of our love for God, out of the joy found in the delighting on Him. Piper explains that we don’t love God and bring sacrifices because that is our duty – husbands would our wives be happy if we brought them flowers because that is what we are supposed to do? No, rather we bring them flowers because we love them and we get joy from serving them and pleasing them.

Grover Gardner does a fine job reading the book, although there are a few errors in pronunciation. The book is not difficult to read or listen to, nor is it difficult to comprehend, and Piper's exposition is especially convincing. However shorter audio file would be more convenient, as there is a lot of information to take in and over a 60 – 90 minutes session, I found my attention wandering.
