APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Some “self-help” books peddle obvious truths as earth-shattering discoveries. Narrated in a clear, easy-to-follow manner by Australian actor Adrian Mulraney, The Courage to Be Disliked takes the opposite approach, delivering thoughtful and occasionally revelatory insights in an understated, unapologetically intelligent package. Based on the work of influential Austrian psychologist Alfred Adler, it unfolds as a Socratic dialogue between a wise man and a skeptical young person. The optimistic premise that guides the conversation has universal appeal: Everyone is capable of change, the past does not determine the future and all behaviour is the result of active choices. We’ll return to this eloquent listen again and again.
Adler and the Pooh
Relevant, a challenging look at one’s own perspective and being human. But I couldn’t get an imagined conversation between Rabbit and Winnie the Pooh out of my mind.
Boring, slow and poorly voiced
Why would you have 1 person reading the audio book but speak on behalf of two people ie “Youth” and “Philosoher”, it is so confusing (and rushed when dialogue is tic-tac between the two characters) it is also disconcerting when the voiceover doesnt pause correctly. It is all one long british monotone… i drift off and it becomes background noise while driving. Was recommended by family but thumbs down for the content and audio. Latter half gets better but opening two sections horrible!!!
