Drawn out too long
Full discosure: I only made it about halfway through this book. While there were some undoubtedly good points made by the author, it felt like this book should have been written at half this length but was instead drawn out much longer than it needed to be. The same ideas were repeated over and over without breaking much new ground. There just isn't enough material here to justify a book this long.

Seemed like a total Bible study all at once.
I thought this book would give me some special kind of insight, I guess that still remains one's personal journey, (no shortcuts). In this book much scripture was used, and the logical flow of the author was hard to follow. It was all I could do to get through about half of it since the book is quite long 13.7 hours.

Beware: references read aloud
I really was looking forward to reading this book, and I still might buy the paper version, but this audio version is laboriously unpleasant. The sound of the narrator’s voice is robotic and if it was the only issue, I could get past it. The problem with this book is they chose to read every scripture reference aloud and it breaks up the flow because there are so many references. I love that he uses so much scripture in his writing, but I can’t follow along with these breaking up most sentences.
