Publisher's Summary

"Randy Taran, in this book, provides an opportunity for people to look beyond narrow self-interests, to find out and consider what is of interest and benefit to others." (From the foreword by His Holiness the Dalai Lama)

This program is read by the author. 

Award-winning author, producer, and founder of Project Happiness, Randy Taran knows that every emotion, feeling, and mental state has the power to bring us back to our true essence and that listeners can use Emotional Advantage as a guide to get there. 

In recent years, there has been an overwhelming interest in the science of happiness and positive psychology, and many books on the subject. There is a good reason for this: It is a core, universal human drive. And while happiness has opened the door for many to move forward, there is a burgeoning curiosity about the full range of human emotions, all of which factor into the human experience. What do we do when life does not go as planned?  

Neuroscience reveals that to understand and utilize any emotion, we need to “name it to tame it”. It turns out that even negative emotions have something to offer, if we know how to learn from them. Have you ever woken up in a fog of feelings and felt directionless? Or maybe it was hard to pinpoint exactly what you were feeling, but it wasn’t where you wanted to be? What if we could actually use our feelings as a pathway to guide us back to our inner compass? What if, like alchemists, we had the tools to transform our emotions to take charge of creating our very best life? What if we could comprehend how even the most troublesome emotions are sending messages to alert, protect, and fuel us forward?    

Emotional Advantage is that guide. It will show us how a new perspective on fear can move us to courage, how guilt can clarify our values, and how anger can help us create healthy boundaries.

The author wrote it well, her oration suffered.

When I can praise a book's content, a fabulous and informative tool is in my arsenal. Thank you, Randy!
Generally, I prefer that authors present their work so I can hear their passion, but not always. In this case, the audible version took away from my experience. The wrong pauses, continuation of sentences and emphasises on the wrong words confused some of the delivery. Not a total washout, but a tough "listen." Perhaps, I will purchase the paper copy and recapture the content in the meaningful and old fashioned way! At the end of the day, it's the information that is key!

Such an empowering book ! Valuable information

I found helpful information in every chapter. Concepts I’ve always overlooked. I read it on both Kindle and Audible & found hearing the authors voice on Audible added superior comprehension for me.

Very Well Structured!

I would absolutely recommend this to those that want to fully distinguish the definition and perspectives of the vast spectrums of emotions that we experience. I always feel like a spiritual being in a human experience and this book helped me recognize how I was suppressing emotions that I did not need to do so in the manner that I did. Now recognizing the value of all the emotions I have felt in different parts of my life thus far and excited for many experiences to come that allow me to be vulnerable and courageous. Thank you Randy for your time taken to express in this book ^_^
