Publisher's Summary

Thomas À Kempis' collection of meditative writings from the Brethren of the Common Life is the most widely read book in the world after the Bible. The reflective devotions have been a heartening friend to great men such as Thomas More, St. Ignatius Loyola, Thomas Merton, Pope John Paul I, and John Wesley. Learning to live like Jesus is the central task that À Kempis explores in this classic devotional. "The religious who concerns himself intently and devoutly with our Lord's most holy life and passion will find there an abundance of all things useful and necessary for him. He need not seek for anything better than Jesus." This book provides comfort and counsel to every person who seeks to live a more connected and whole life.

difficult to follow

The reader here speaks in a very unnatural tone and is very difficult to follow. statements and questions sound the same, and sentences have pauses every few words when there should be no pauses. I found myself daydreaming and rewinding often, due to the nature of the tone

Whispersync with kindle version

There are MANY versions of this book on Amazon and hear on Audible. This is the only version I could find that allowed the whispersync connection with amazon. So it is the Dover thrift edition on Amazon and the audio narrated by pj Ocklan. I that think it is incredibly helpful to be able to go between the audio book and the kindle book. This is not a book you will only read once. It is more of a devotional that you can fruitfully read over and over again. So have the ability to switch between audio and print is priceless.

Excellent!

There should be two forms of education for children that are both provided free of cost to the student, one the current outdated system of educating and two the new way which includes the principles in this book so people are not sent to the slaughterhouse after high school for everyone to profit from and so we can truly actualize a more productive and prosperous tomorrow and ensure our national security is not destroyed from within by being in a perpetual state where no one can see above the triabalozed lower levels of consciousnesses which are like dog collars aka: nooses hanging from trees where no true change and reforms are possible which is truly strangling the oxygen from a nation so desperately wanting but is kept in a denier state from being able to actualize any massive changes, but only the illusion of some progress. Instead of wearing the dog collars they ought to be putting their stupid on a dog collar to keep it under control and focus on making a difference instead of taking an ax to knock down all the good that is trying to be accomplished. We have enemies with ties and shirts on. We are all awakening to this form of terrorism upon us, and love and good will prevail, no matter what!

Good book, awful narration

This is a timeless Christian classic but the narrator sounds like an American sports commentator. Terrible!
