Jack Canfield is an amazing author and reader... hearing the story read by Canfield adds a sense of credibility and calmness. The organization and ideas in the book are very helpful. He includes short inspirational stories along the way that help reinforce the principles he teaches. I have listened to my download 5 or 6 times in the past 2 month -- it's one you can learn from again and again.
I also own the printed copy with all the principles. Jack does a great job in focusing on the key ones for the audio version. His reading voice is soothing and inspiring. I have recommended this book to many others who have also enjoyed it greatly. I think everyone should listen to this book.
I purchased the audio book. The exercises are good and the presentation is clear and direct. There is plenty of humor to keep it light and the overall content is both practical and insightful. An excellent "overview" book and the ideas and concepts are immediately useful. If you are looking for a follow up to "The Secret", this is not it, but the book and Mr. Canfield are both excellent and the information will help in everyday life and business.
This is one of the best success books ever. You can listen to it over and over and learn something new every time. I liked it so much I bought the paperback for my library to use as a study aide.
I've just been turned on to this "Chicken Soup Guru" recently and I must admit the soup is working. Driving in my car, fighting LA traffic isn't necessarily the best way to listen to a book on tape, but I do feel some of his wisdom stuck. Just today I said to a friend, who I'm working on a project with; let's do five things today that will get us to our goal. We did...and tomorrow I'll do five more.
This information may not be new to some, but it is put out in a way that only Mr. Canfield can do. It should be titled chicken soup for the successful soul. The first chapter WILL be worth it, if nothing else. You were drawn to this book for a reason, buy it and find out why.
This particular audio program I purchased by "accident" turns out to be one of the best investments I ever made. A great launchpad for getting lift off with success.
Jack Canfield has always been a favorite since the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series and I was quite surprised to find him authoring a title like this one. “The Success Principles” is not bad and it might just be what you are looking for. It does follow a kind of general knowledge of success but has a few original ideas as well. I would defiantly recommend purchasing and it and you must listen a few times to make sure you get it all in. Enjoy
