Buy the book instead
I bought the book version of this years ago and finally read it on a long plane flight overseas. The book was fantastic and has literally changed my life. One of the most profound topics in the book - the words you use to others and yourself, has completely changed how I react to situations. E.g., instead of becoming furious at a situation, i now say that "I'm a little peeved". Robbins even teaches you to use the modifier "little" or "bit". It sounds strange but it really works. None of this is in the audiobook. None. The audiobook is nothing more than a glorified table of contents with none of the specifics that make the book so great. Buy the book and not the audiobook. They are NOT the same and the audiobook was very disappointing.
It is not the whole book, only the begining chapters.
The actual book is here on my desk - 512 pages. The audio book is 1 1/2 hours long - really abridged. Strangely, my iPod displays "1 of 6" as the 1 1/2 hours of audio plays. I wonder if iTunes left out the other 5 downloads by mistake.
