LANGUISHING How to Feel Alive Again in a World That Wears Us Down

by | Read by Landon Woodson

Personal Growth • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

This timely audiobook is an engaging follow-up to the bestselling author's work on psychological flourishing. Narrator Landon Woodson's heartfelt performance authentically represents the author, a renowned sociologist. Keyes's own storytelling skill creates a smooth transition into the audio format since the scientific information is presented in the context of real-life people and their struggles. In a post-pandemic world, many listeners will find that the author's ideas resonate. Keyes provides deeply personal descriptions of a newly defined mental state, languishing, whose hallmarks are emotional flatlining and a blunted ability to engage purposefully in life. Woodson's emotionally wrenching delivery of the final chapter, detailing the author's personal journey to overcome languishing after horrific child abuse, will leave listeners choked up and vastly inspired.
