  • "A MUST HAVE!"

    Overall

    This goes beyond the plain wealth advancement category. It really helps you clarify practical methods and changes your perception about servicing customers, growing existing customers, and how to treat them. It establishes the true wealth mentality, and just happens to be a good personal growth book. 100 great ways, a great price, and I don't know why I waited on this book. Don't wait, just get this one. Will try some of their others. This mentions them, and I like when a new book comes out that summarizes info from past books so you get a good value deal here. This book could be the one that gets you on your way.

    These 100 eye-opening ways to create wealth are drawn from the author's successful careers, with many touching personal stories as well as stories and examples from the hundreds of clients these master coaches have advised. This book is chock full of ways to make money, deepen life's pleasure, increase personal wage-earning power, and start fresh entrepreneurial ideas right at home.

  • "Yes, if you worry, listen."

    Overall

    Great classic on this topic and if you listen and understand the message, maybe a few times, some of it will sink in and help. I mean after all, who doesn't worry, and who doesn't need some reminders on how to deal with it. If this helps you even a little, the return is far worth the credit. Good basis for the self help series to have under your belt. I am do for a reread. You are due for your first. "Listen to the inexpensive self help books first before you take any expensive self help courses."

  • "Yes, with caveats"

    Overall

    First few Chapters had more depth. Eliminating the "Money Step", learning to get by with less, the addiction of money, are all good topics and make this audio book worth the credit. The rest was less detailed steps and more personal talking, sometimes to the point of stopping to listen. I didn't care to hear for extended periods of time about his house mortage, which could have been more detailed how to, instead of filler. The bad language and continued sexual inuendos have no place in a self help book, and shows yeg is still in the 'good ole boys mentality of the 80s' and needs to look in the mirror. Time to present info in a family mannor as you would want people to speak at your own dinner table. The reveal of his own finances at the end made up for the loss of credibility of his flaws. If you are into self dev as I am, this is one in a series and if you can learn to curb your spending addictions just a bit, its more than covers the downsides of this document.

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Much much much better than expected. Everything is perfect about it:

    1. Doesn't promote more stress and overwhelm. You're not asked to make lists, overwork yourself, etc – as it's often the case in other books in this genre.

    2. It's so well-written. Engaging.

    3. It's so well organised. Easy to follow and digest.

    4. The method is sound and logical.

    5. Perhaps related to point number three, but the music between the chapters add a positive note (pun intended) to the presentation and overall experience.

    Such a keeper, this book.
