This is such a helpful book right now. James has a very relaxing voice. Definitely 5 star helpful book. Audio quality is good.
Best to buy it and try it, I did and it helps me. Very down to earth English, too, easy to listen to. Thank you

P.S 3 months later, because I find this book so helpful, have to query the audio quality of some of the book.........I’d give the book five stars still, definitely, but the sound quality on my iPad Pro between 2 and 3 stars.
Nonetheless this is the best book if you have a challenged nervous system, it’s invaluable 🙏🌍
