On my way to visit my son in LA, in an airport in Dallas,I bought the hard cover book when it first came out. I was in a destructive relationship and I felt trapped. I wept while reading on the plane. After my visit I read the boo again, found a church to attend and was baptized. I left the strife filled mansion with my clothes, my bible and my true self. I didn't have material things like before but the book reminded me of the person I was meant to be. The audiobook is awesome. I listen to Joel Osteen's books and sermons everyday since. I highly recommend this book to young people, old people, business people, young couples, basically everyone. When you do read or listen to it, open your heart and your mind, and you truly will become a better you.

This book isn't very deep in the sense that the information is not revolutionary or complex , however it is very positive and helpful. If you want inspiration to be the best person you can be this is the book for you. I listened to it several times just whenever I wanted an attitude boost. Most of it is things you've heard before, but Joel is very inspirational and uses verses, stories, quotes and illustrations to get the point across. This really helps your mind get into a positive state and focussing on truth. I recommend the book for general motivation in life.
Topics covered were very insightful, effective, and helpful for absolutely everyone. I am a scientist and not very religious, but felt that even though Joel is a pastor, his book was not overpowering with religion as many can be. Extremely well done and useful.
This book is very inspiring, in fact, I will be reading this book again. Right after I take care of some other audio and eBooks that I have pending. I enjoyed this audible on my way to school and when driving to my externship location which was about 20 on the road in the morning and another 20 after. All this time by myself on the car was the perfect setting to get some of the best advice from one of the greatest authors. I will recommended? Yes definitively.
Yes, great book to have. It helps you see everyday problems differently and give you motivation to try to be your best.
Joel Osteen, so positive even when life is not so great.
Stay positive regardless. God always come through maybe not when or how we want, but we need to learn to trust him.
Brother Joel Osteen does it again, he is exceedingly and abundantly gifted and blessed. Joel does a great job narrating "Become a better you". I look forward to his next book and the joy and blessing of using audible.com in listening and enjoying every bit of it!!
At first I wasn't sure about this pastor. I thought he was to flowery. Now I have listened to his teachings and interviews and find his teaching a breathe of fresh air. He loves the lord and I believe he is very sincere in the faith. Most teachers teach the Bible at you. He teaches to encourage. Like Jesus did. I am a follower of Christ not man. But I choose to be lifted up when applying Gods Word to my life. We all know the Dont's and get stuck in that too much. Not "name it and claim it" but " Know Him and live in Victory". We as believers should be a little more open minded and not so judgemental. There is to much division in the Body of Christ.
WoW!!! This book is better than listening to a Joel Osteen sermon on television. It is inspiring and uplifting. Just what this world needs in these troubled times
