I feel like the right answer is to say this is a fantastic book. I just found it very dogmatic and repetitive. The 13 immutable laws, the 30 moral flaws, on and on. Just such a painful read (i.e. listen); had to force myself through it. I came away with a picture of the author as extremely efficient and productive, but hard nosed and unhappy. I am likely wrong on many of these points, and I know people who have gotten a lot out of this book. And there are some fantastic points. In fact, the book itself says you need not read it beyond the section at the very beginning where it gives the example of the completely devoted man who goes to work for Edison (an example of someone with a singular focus, and total commitment). So, you might want to just listen this far, and then form a very compelling beautiful uplifting and inspiring vision for your life, and pursue that whole heartedly, forgetting about the immutable this's and that's.
The Vortex by Esther & Jerry Hicks (Abraham)
The voice inflection of the speaker added passion & excitement of the knowledge being presented. I've listened to the entire audiobook twice in 2 weeks & I'm now actually reading the book & underling. Thanks Audible for passing along this free trial audiobook. You now have me hooked.
Some of the examples are less relevant. But still has some good advice. Talks a lot about what is holding people back.
Very detailed and pioneered the way for many books that came after. I have read many books on the subject and have found that most books that were written several years later, have used a lot of content from this book. I highly recommend this.
