I've been an Audible junkie from way before it was cool.
People who would enjoy 7 hours of encouragement to think more positively to resonate with the universal wisdom of God (your subconscious). This book is replete with unreferenced anecdotes that aren't even framed as arguments, but it is one mystical riff endlessly regurgitated in what sounds like a 2am infomercial promising you power, riches, and more virility.
Absolutely. There is no integrity in this genre if this is a best sellar. Not even pop-pyschology, not even pop philosophy...pop cliches, and imprecise, ambiguous language, always delivered with comic hyperbolic claims.
The performance is strong. He was working with utter tripe. He didn't get to steak, but maybe we got to sweet breads.
Anger that I lost a credit. Sadness that this is considered a best seller. Disappointment that I did, indeed, suffer through every second hoping we'd get past the same story told over and over again. I swear, sometimes I feel like the author wrote a chapter forgetting that he already wrote all of it in the previous chapter.
This is the best book I have listened to so far. The narration is wonderful, the content is superb and the overall message is so enlightening. I have listened to it several times and continue to learn more each time, I highly recommend this book!
Just a young man that wants to excel with every fiber in his body.
I had already read the book and I bought this to solidify what I had read...
The audio book blew me away, it allowed me to catch things I had not paid attention to while reading it. The way the author reads the book makes it crystal clear.
I have read tons of books on personal improvement and the law of attraction and this is by far the best one because it takes a bit of all of them. Ultimately our surroundings come from the way we think about things and ourselves. This book not only explains this in complete detail but GIVES YOU THE WAYS TO DO IT.
I think that is the biggest difference between some of the other books I have read. Good explanation and great application methods. If you are in a work environment that demands the best in you or want to change your surroundings, give this a couple of read throughs.
I am not religious (but believe in god) but the biblical quotes serve their purpose well.
I suppose my only complaint with the book (I had no idea it was written in the 60s) are some of the example are... well old. Nothing wrong with that since the book was written when it was.
Some other good books to solidify your mental training that I recommend are...
Louisas Hays You Can Heal Your Life (also mental)
Napoleon Hills Think and Grow Rich
Any of Masaru Emotos books (how thoughts change our physical surroundings)
Michael Losier Law of Attraction The Science of Attracting More of What You Want
I hope you guys find my review useful and take a show with the book!
Love and Peace.
I listen to inspirational/motivational books every day while driving to keep me from bursting into flames while engulfed in road rage on the streets of Los Angeles. They help. Really.
Many of the them are repetitive and I catch myself being lulled into a sort of dance like state by the materials. Not a bad thing, I guess, especially considering that it keeps me from ramming my CRV into nearby motorists.
This book was different. It was... more.
I heard about the book when a kooky, older man came in to the bar where I work. he struck up a conversation and started telling me things about myself like he was psychic. I later learned that this was his job. All well and good but i was not paying someone to tell me that I wold meet a tall, handsome stranger after he saw my ringless finger.
This man told me that I was on a life changing journey and in year 6 of a 7 year cycle. This was the year I would "regain my power." Okay. And what does this have to do with anything?
Anyway, he told me that a lot of the changes that were going on in my life were necessary at this time but then said that if I really wanted to see a big difference in a short period of time then I should check this book out. " It's life altering." ( I later found out that this guy was an advisor for Tony Robbins for many years.)
I was looking for a new book. This recommendation came the day before my monthly credit came in so it was right on time.
I read the reviews and saw how long the book had been around. It was worth a shot.
I just have to say that I was so pleasantly surprised by the logic and flow of how the material was presented. Although I like books that inspire positive thinking and encourage visualization. I cannot stand airy fairy books with rambling babble that sound like yoda wrote them. Give it to me straight but give me a little reason with my "faith."
This book was great! It is the grandaddy to books like "The Secret." It was a million times better than any of its offshoots.
I noticed an immediate change in my productivity and attitude. I cannot recommend this book more highly.
It is definitely worth the price. I know I will be listening to it repeatedly!
It is one of the most powerful books I have ever read. This will be my 5 time I have read it 4 times, and now I have downloaded it to listen to it, everytime I read it I learn something new. I bout a copy for my brother that was an addict, at one time and since then Him and I have both become published authors. and I have moved toward life coaching. Absolutely transforming. than you
Very easy to understand, comprehend and apply. The author is very knowledgeable and does not overwhelm you. A great resource for anyone who wants to achieve more in life.
Each book I've listened to on the laws of attraction concepts has provided me with new insightful information, and this book was no exception. It's a lot of information to digest after listening to it the first time so I suggest listening at least twice. I'm currently listening to it for the second time and I'm learning new things I must have missed the first time around. I'ts definitely worth the time invested.
This is a book about a religious belief that uses scripture to substantiate the author's belief. It takes a while of listening until you realize that this is another twisting of the bible. The author makes it clear that he does not believe in God but that we are god. He mixes up words so that it is hard to figure out what he is trying to say until your really into the book.
If I had understood that this was a twisted religious book, I could have passed on this selection.
I have no complaints for the performance. He did a fine job of reading the book.
I would have made it clear in the very beginning that this book is not how it represents itself. It is not another version of the Power of Positive Thinking. This book looks at the Bible and twists it around to fit the beliefs of the author. This book is so odd. If the author did not believe in God, he should have just used another book to prove his points.
yes, I think everyone should listen to it, even as a practice in patience. There are many bible references, but he does not push religion. He does use the word "spiritual" a lot, which should cover just about everyone.
this is my first book of this type
it made me smile when he added other language accents to his voice, when quoting someone
no, I walk to work about 30-40 minutes twice a day, 4-5 days a week through the angry streets of Boston. I wanted a change from just listening to music. I always arrived with a very positive feeling for the coming day.
if you are a non-religious person, like me, you will need to get past the bible quotes and god references and just listen to the words. It is very informative. I learned so much about my own thinking, sometimes to the point of wanting to turn it off because it was so true! I will listen to it again, and will learn new things, since I now understand the basics of it
Get this audiobook is a life changer, you learn how to program your subconscious mind, i found in this material all the answers I was looking for, believe me after your become a master in all this techniques you don't have to read any self help book anymore, also what I learned is that many self gurus learned from Dr Murphy(the author) and explained based on their own experience, if you see the secret movie, you can compare the movie like the elemental school with the College that is this book, by the way the person that narrated the book keep it you connected all the time with the content.
yes, and I still listening again and again
