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.
Living in the Moment
IT COVERS ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE. The meditations and prays are great. The book really shows you how to be peaceful and inbthe moment.
IT RELATES TO ALLLIFE
LIFE AS IT SHOULD BE
In the top 5
I particularly liked the explanations of how it all works and the prayers for petioning the subconscious mind for wanted change.
I've heard a lot of Audible narrators and Jason Culp is excellent. Poor narration steals the focus from the text. I appreciate a good narrator when I hear one.
The distance healing prayer in chapter 7 for others
I Love To Read! It relaxes me and fills my mind up with Knowledge, Peace, Wisdom, Love and Serenity. It's just Simply Beautiful!
Law of Attraction...
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
Yes, from the beginning to the end!
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!
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.
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.
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
