Reading the introduction, the author sounds natural and excited about the ideas she offers in this inspiring audiobook. Caitlin Kelly's heartfelt narration, in contrast, communicates a gentle urgency that doesn't interfere with the learning but takes something away from the writing's relaxed optimism. This audiobook offers principles of living, growth, and repair that draw on the Kumai's childhood years living in Japan and absorbing the culture. A chef and cookbook author, she is deeply aware of the unity between our bodies and minds, so the ancient wisdom she shares sounds familiar and instinctually satisfying--the opposite of dualistic Western thought on living well. In this respect, Kelly sounds very much in sync with these Japanese personal growth traditions, as well as the author's humanitarian intentions.
