The book might be a best-seller, but the audio presentation is mind-numbing. I tuned it out after 30 minutes. Unless you're on a lot of Ritalin, this will bore you to tears. Buy the book and skim it -- at least that way you won't be forced to hear all the boring anecdotes that support eaching sub-heading. On the other hand, if you're an insomniac, I think you've just found your cure to quick and deep sleep!
First of all, Audible sucks. The phone app (WP7) is really malware. Once you turn it on it drains the battery in a couple of hours even if you don't use it. I had to uninstall it and burn CDs instead. I listened a little more than one cd (the book is on 8 or so). He does have some very good ideas that get lost in a sea of talk-talk-talk. Having the book would be much better (as it's always the case) - you could skip the fluff and get the main ideas faster. I don't think I will ever listen to the whole book.
I had the book for 16 years & never read it but thanks for the audio book!
This book provides essential information for personal and self growth. Opened my eyes to information and perspectives I never realized.
I am personally enjoying this book because the instructions are simple and doable, once you give thought to them.
When I first heard this book a few months back I said to myself, "If I had learned these principles years ago I would have been able to re-shape and forgo so much of suffering, bumps and emotional bruises me life has gone through." In short this is timeless masterpiece and should be revisited time and time again. I cannot understand the naive and disinterested comments I have read concerning this classic.
A MUST READ......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The book I'm sure has some great messages to convey, unfortunately the author's voice drones on in such a way that it is extremely hard to not nod off mid sentence! I listened to half the book and gave up when I realized I couldn't remember anything he had said in the preceding hour. Great book - horrible narration.
