The title: "Thinking BIG" kind of implies that he's going to talk about taking your ideas to the next level, improving yourself to recognize undreamed of potential, etc. I was pretty disappointed. I'm only 23, but I consider myself a pretty successful and driven guy. I landed a great job (dream job actually) right out of university and I'm thinking about starting up my own company in a couple years. I already have a pretty decent level of confidence and I try not to make many excuses in any aspect of life.
This book is more for someone who has a low self esteem and feels hopeless in his/her current job. It's for someone who doesn't take chances and always gives up on dreams. Unless you're one of these people, this book will not change your life.
Instead invest in a book by James Rohn, Zig Ziglar or Brian Tracey they say the same message in a memoriable way that is enjoyable to listen to.
David is a little old school now. His voice boring and stories are dry.
Had the hard copy of this on my shelf for the last 12 years and never been able to get past the first chapter. Now I can say I have read it.
This book really got me thinking about my attitudes and how to make big leaps forward. A mix of positive thinking concepts and practical tips. Great way to kick-start you mind and get ideas flowing and you legs (and arms) working!
Very well put the facts to achive success. I will be listening to it more than once and will sure recommend it to my family and friend to listen to it. Lucky to have found this audio book.
I think this is the first book that every business person must read or listen. Listening to this is like using drugs in sports.
If you think that "The Secret" is a great book, then you would like this book, but it will add nothing to "The Secret". If you think that the Law of Attraction (or the power of positive thinking) is real and enlightening, but it just hasn't been working for you, then you an buy this book and get another booster shot. It's just nonsense and boring on top of that.
There are some useful tidbits in this one but largely it follows the "Your mind is a computer" stuff. At times it almost insults your intelligence. Learning and growth are much more spiritual than this literature would have you believe.
