99% of what I listen to is business based. This would be in the top 10 of every book I've listened to based on it's great content alone.
The book is very well laid out. The concepts are very easy to understand and described in such a way that you feel you can do them.
The only weak part of this book is the narration. While I believe Brian Tracy is a genius and in incredible author, he should have left the reading to a pro. While I appreciate he is a great speaker and presenter, he miscalculated that those skills and reading an audio book are one and the same.
It's not bad to the point of distraction, but if you listen to a lot of audio books as I do, you realize that it could've been done better.
No. I listened to this while I was driving over the period of about a week.
Overall, this is a very good audio book and highly recommend it.
The book is not nearly as holistic or well organized as for example The 7 Habits of Highly Effective people. It won’t give you a complete mindset or lens to wee the world though. What it will give you though is a lot of practical tips and pointers and if you can pick the raisins out of it, it might be worth a purchase.
I liked this book and found it a good listen for my morning workouts. I have not read anything else by the author, so whether or not this is regurgitated material from his other books I cannot say, however I enjoyed it and thought he had many good points.
Unlike other reviewers, I didn't mind the narration at all. In fact, I appreciate it when I can get the actual author's intonation of his own words. Is Tracy a gifted reader? Maybe not, but it's not half as bad as some claim.
What I did find, and this is pretty classic for this type of book, is that Tracy pretty much said everything he had to in the first quarter of the book, and then spent the rest of the book approaching the material from different angles to fill up pages. Likewise, I thought the book ended randomly and abruptly, as if he'd filled his word quota. Still I enjoyed the book, and recommend it.
There are some effective tips in this book however it's painful and I mean painful to listen to it. Brian Tracy chose to narrate it himself. So not a good idea. He's wonderful at synthesizing complex terms into tips. However does not have the voice or delivery for narration. A professional voice over talent wouldn't try to do what Tracy does. Tracy shouldn't do what a VO professional does.
I just got through it and it is a very useful guide to getting your affairs into organization. But getting the book as well would be a useful idea since there is a lot of notes to be taken.
This book has a lot of good information, but if you have already read most of the popular self-help books, then you'll find that this book is just a collection of the advice from other books. I could definitely tell that Napoleon Hill was a big influence on this author.
I really wish that the author himself wouldn't have read the story because his voice is extremely monotonous and made it difficult to listen to.
If you haven't listened to much self-help, then this book will definitely help you out though.

good audio .
I advice those who want to develop self discipline to listen to it
seven habits of highly effective people
because the talk about the same topic effectively
discipline may be difficult from the get go but as you progress it become easier.
Yay books! Love sci-fi, actio/adventure stories. Really any story with a great hook and deep plot always gets me :)
anyone who likes to listen to someone who is not a great reader
A sci/fi novel
More dynamic voice reading. Just because you wrote the book doesn't mean you are the best person for the audio book.
Outstanding, Essential & Worthwhile
YOU and your habits and distractions are at the center of this book!
Very strait forward coaching speaks to the core of your ability to achieve.Told it strait like it is, pulling no punches.
A Must See For Any One Who Aspires To Be and Do Great Things With Their Life!
Everyone who listens to Brian's Book will get value from it, bar none!

It inspired me to be a better worker and a better person.
