Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Stella | 10/10/2016

    " I really liked Elizabeth's book overall. There were a few chapters where I was thinking, "ok, that is your opinion and interpretation. I don't feel the same way". However, I think she has really good takes on what it means to co-create and manifest. I especially loved the chapter where she speaks on fear being in the backseat of every "road trip" you take. You have to read the book to get what I'm saying. All in all, this was a great audiobook to listen to on my long commutes. I recommend to anyone interested in discovering and living their dreams. "
