too many references to god. quotes the bible several times and cites psalms. i feel like it is a misrepresentation and i am going to trade this book in on something else.
I have heard so much about this book I felt the need to buy it. I converted the book into ELEVEN audio CD's. Hour after hour I kept waiting for "some meat". Finally, after the 8th CD, I had to quit listening. This work certainly could have been shaved down (by at least half) and cut all of the fluff. I'm not usually quick offer a negative review but I was put to sleep by this work. If you're looking for some inspiration or looking to download something in regards to self-improvement, I suggest downloading a Wayne Dyer lecture. You'll get much more bang for your buck.
The title and the author are well-known. What I know now as well is that it is such a boring book. I did not expect this. This was not inspiring at all for me. Maybe browse the paper copy and see if you like it before you torture yourself by listening to it.
I read the book many years ago. I really enjoyed the audio presentation. This book is worth your time. The references to God are annoying, but there are not a lot of them. I would rate give it five stars if not for the religious references.
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!
I paid for it and now I'm not able to download it. What a rip off!
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!
