Audiobooks are mainly meant for personal listening on an audioplayer - unfortunately that does not seem to have dawned on whoever produced this audiobook. There is a very loud loud jingle at end of every chapter and again at the beginning of the next. I am sure I am undergoing hearing loss by listening to this book.
I'm sure most people would not notice but I was turned off, to much reference to God for me, I couldn't finish the book.
After listening to this book I do feel encouraged to pursue some of my ideas that I've just been sitting on, but the author makes it sound much easier to succeed than it actually is. I feel like he glosses over the sometimes tedious nature of hard work that leads to success. His response might be that if you are doing what you love or have a passion for then the tedious parts won't feel like work, but seriously, there will be times consumed with tedious work if you are going to succeed. Also, if you don't like Christianity then you will be annoyed at the regular references to Biblical material.
The one thing that I'm really shocked about was how poorly read/edited this production was at times. Dan fumbles over his words occasionally and it really detracts from the listening experience. For a supposedly professional produced audio book it has an amateurish execution.
I don’t usually rant in a negative way about a book…but here goes. Miller is a typical, white, self made salesman who made it on creativity…and Bullsh*t…and being in the right place at the right time. The book is a popularization of today’s Christianity…at least a majority…jesus says he wants you to be “well off”…and kinda of think of the poor…when it makes you look good. Like a typical pastor, they scheme and scam…positioning their own wealth…and telling others to “have faith”. Amway is parallel without direct reference to our buddy jesus.
What is left out of books like Millers, is a real plan. Miller knows, as does most thinking people, you make it in America two ways. 1) family…or…2) old school education and credentials. Yes, there are a few people who think of creative ways to make money, and change their job environment…but for the most part…no skill set = no leverage…period. Miller, like most jesus people, don’t want wealth competition, so the advice is “follow your heart”…not…”get your lazy a** back to school!” In sum: SAVE YOUR MONEY...look else ware!
