Of all the business books I have bought this was a total waste of money
The whole book
Why would this book be pushed to the top of the list as a business book to read? I am all most sure that someone bought the right and is just making a buck. I will not trust Audibles recommdations again.
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.
The book is great, but the narrarator mispronounces Andrew Carneggie's name throughout the entire book.
Editor? Proof listener? Hello?
The conent is quality.
Erik needs to do his homework & stop misprounouncing Andrew Carneggie's name.
personally, I got nothing out of it. I would not recommend it to anyone unless they would want to listen to short stories about dedication, faith, persistence, desire....blah blah blah.
Would not recommend. Talks and talks but doesn't actually say anything. Just keeps saying that if you really listen you will learn the secret.
I've wanted to read this book for years. Finally getting the opportunity, I slowly but surely realized that Mr. Hill had fashioned a few small nuggets of wisdom in a heap of speculation and outright nonsense.
