Summary

Bloomsbury presents I May Be Wrong by Björn Natthiko Lindeblad, read by Thom Petty.

Let me tell you what this audiobook is not. It's not about religion. It's not about telling you how to live your life. It's not about taking on a new set of beliefs. Plain and simple, it's about how to relate to your own thoughts and emotions in a way that makes your life more enjoyable, more free, brighter, clearer and wiser.

We like to think we understand what’s happening around us; that we can determine the path our life takes. But often, things don’t go that way - in fact, they rarely do.

From former forest monk Björn Natthiko Lindeblad, I May Be Wrong was a Swedish sensation. It is a book of timeless wisdom about how to handle the uncertainty that is a natural part of life.

What helps us to live freely? How can we find comfort in difficult times? Is there a way to stay humble in the heat of the moment? And what stands out as most important when things are coming to an end?

Infusing the everyday with heart and grace, I May Be Wrong is an audiobook to help us all navigate the realities of modern life.

The very best listen ever!

This is by far the best book I've listened to on Audible. The story is honest and sincere. The narrator is exceptional and should be the most sought after for Audible. I'm not easily pleased and I've heard every self help book. This is all you need. It will be my last self help book after 40 years of searching. Thank you so much Bjorn.

Thought provoking which brings peace

A deeply insightful view on life, we often place value on materialistic goods and the success of our lives on what we have rather than who we are. When things happen in life outwith our control it’s good to remember there’s more to life and to value yourself as a person, and that person is who you choose to be, you choose how you react to events. Listening to this book helped me with peace. Well written and sharing a personal journey through life and impending death. Puts a better perspective on death which will hopefully help those who face it imminently or those who know a loved one has limited time.
I can imagine I’d listen to this book again.

Inspirational

This is a wonderful memoir of a former monk in the Thai Forest Tradition of Ajahn Chah.

It is honest and heartwarming, charting the highs and lows of a young man who ordains for 17 years in a very austere tradition and his inner transformation. The equanimity with which he faces a terminal diagnosis in his late 40s is inspiring.

Not a comfortable read, but so important to read

This book pulled me in with its Buddhist wisdom appeal but I have been deeply moved and troubled by it. I found myself in it again and again. It’s lessons are so penetrating. I love Natthiko’s profound humanity. I am richer for having encountered this wise, wise book.

I absolutely loved listening to this book, a fascinating life told so beautifully, with humour and humility, a real feeling of calm comes through the pages, what a wonderful book.

Deeply insightful and very moving

This is a special book, full of spirital insights. I am grateful to Natthiko for sharing his wisdom with us before he passed away.

Simple Wisdoms Go a Long Way

Inspiring, funny, interesting… the final parts of this made me cry so much but I felt like I’ve walked away from this with simple words that are so wise and helpful through the journey of life.

Amazing

So heartfelt, so enlightening, so many positive messages we can all learn a lot from. I thoroughly enjoyed this and have already bought the paperback and read that too.
