Yes Absolutely, This should be called a textbook to life.
One of the most inspiring books I have ever listened to.
Yes. Erik is an excellent narrator.
No. There are lots of good findings and ideas in this book. However, most of it should be scrapped because Hill has interpreted all of his research from an incorrect world view. He talks of evolution and cave men. He reduces God to a non-personal energy. He is "out there" on telepathy. He says sex is merely biological when it is clearly spiritual. To discern the truth, one must read carefully.
Nothing. He's great.
Yes but only as an opportunity to learn something about the process of movie production itself.
Greetings. My brother introduced me to Audible in 2011. Since, nothing but enjoyment. Hopefully my reviews are very useful to you. Enjoy!
Both I would consider both great.
Yes and in addition to that once every 6 months. It's that impactful.
Must have for those that want self development.
Yes! It's at the pinnacle of teaching someone how to attain success.
Having a burning desire for what you want and transmuting that desire into it's monetary equivalent through persistance.
His son born without hearing capacity (physical equipment to support hearing) but through desire he learned to hear through bond conduction of sound.
It was an epiphany! I'm 50 years old now and I'm just acquiring this knowledge.
Wish it was part of my high school's curriculum.
The stories in this book will help you to understand the trials many amazing people have gone through and give you an understanding that you can do what you want as long as you commit.
This book was certainly not for me. Its just another one of those "fluff" books where the author tries to fool you into thinking that they have the simple answer to all the complicated problems in your professional and personal life. What this book repeats over and over again is that all you need to succeed is to be positive and never give up. How do you get there according to the book? -By deluding yourself with repeated monologues of course.
Although confidence is an important part of the mindset of a successful person, its far from the whole package. And in some cases its pure madness to just be positive and keep on pushing when you are clearly on the wrong track.
Absolutely. I got this book from the "business" section. This is not business, this is cheap pop psychology and in my opinion does more harm than good. In the future I'll be sure to screen the books I choose a bit more carefully.
The narrator was fine.
I would have made it into one chapter perhaps of a motivational book for people with very low self esteem.
Although feeling empowered for a short period of time, most people reading this book will not benefit at all from it. Eventually that initial empowerment will fade and they move on to the next "scam", probably from Tony Robbins or some equally naked emperor. In my personal experience, the people I know that listen to and believe this rubbish are "self help" junkies and they are without exception failures in life in every single way.
They are often the same kind of people who get caught in Amway style pyramid scams or new age healing courses.
This book was so informative and explained in detail how to reach your goals. It is very important to study this book over and over again to really get the concepts down because of all of the information. I have ready many many books on this topic and this is by far one of the top books that showed me the path to success. I own the audible version and the kindle version. It is a must read!
That being rich is more than just money.
That anyone could use the information in the book to have a richer life.
A man who spent his lifetime seeking for answers on personal development and patters of how rich people think and behave couldn't go in vain. "Think and Grow Rich" is the manifestation of all the passion and purpose Napoleon Hill put into this book. By following these obvious, yet unshakable principles, one will most definitely pave his way to success, fulfillment and prosperity. However, it takes a lifetime to master those. With this book's company the journey becomes far easier and more enjoyable.
I have read a copy of Think and Grow Rich at least 5 times and thought I would get the audio just to keep the info. fresh. This version is very similiar to the 1930's version and is to out of date to concentrate on. ie: look for jobs as a type setter or in radio.
I highly recommend Think and Grow Rich - Just get a updated version!
