    Would you try another book from Napolean Hill and Jamie McIntyre and/or the narrators?

    I will try to buy a different version of think and grow rich


    What could Napolean Hill and Jamie McIntyre have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Jamie McIntyre tries to teach people ways to get rich quick. As a Dave Ramsey follower, I truly believe that these get rich quick schemes not only area quick way to financial ruin, but also a way to end relationships. Instead of looking for get rich quick schemes, offer not only long term wealth building advice, but also suggestions of plans used that helped people in various financial ruin situations. Stories from the individuals themselves of how they bounced back would be great. If you wish to cut ties with your relationships for profit gain, buy this version!


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader spoke way too fast, and the chapters skipped mid-chapter. Worst audiobook version I purchased.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger. The idea of asking for your parent's inheritance early is an example. My stepfather and mother are currently in a position where they have to work until their last days instead of enjoying the fruits of their hard work for the very reason of his kids asking for inheritances early. Do not put that on your parents. Money or financial gain is not worth the misery of others. Whatever situation you are in, the storm will pass. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Put your faith in God, and don't give up. You will reach the goal to financial freedom if you follow a plan.


    Any additional comments?

    I want my money back on this book.

  • "My favorite book for encouragement!"

    73 of 81 helpful votes

    This updated version is worth the listen even if you have the first edition because it is filled with real life examples of people who went through with the steps in the first book and were successful.

    I wish there would've been some people who didn't make it and why. I feel like a lot of people wouldn't have been successful due to family responsibility. There isn't much advice for people who are married and have children. Tim is obviously single at the time of writing and able to focus on things without family responsibility.

    This book makes you want to get up and do something...but sometimes reality hits if your spouse isn't going along with your ideas.

    Excellent read and resources...
