Overall, they're ate so many great thoughts and ideas in this book. So much of what's contained therein is so counter to what our culture believes today. Reading this book will help you to realize the effects culture has on our perception of work and business, and how to change how you think /work.
This was my first audible book, so it took me a bit too get used to the narration. It was good, overall.
Honestly, this is a fairly long /deep book, but listening to it really helped me to get through it. But this will be one where I listen to it again... I don't think it's possible to take everything in on one run.
I found this information to be thought provoking and challenging to my previously held beliefs. I'm looking forward to more from Rabbi Daniel Lapin.
God is for prosperity (not against it)
Napoleon Hill's Think and grow rich has some of same principles - but this one I trust more since it has reference to the bible and Jewish traditions wich I personally trust more.
I like interpretation of story of Cain - his name means "acquire" and he wanted to aquire all earth by eradicating copmetitors. But Gods plan was to increase welth through cooperation - this is possible when there are many people, in cities. And when Cain understood his mistake he decided to have kids and called his kid "education" - Enoch.
I liked the idea that job is viewd as service to God - because job is done to serve Gods children
there are many thoughts in this book about jewish tradition of understanding bible stories. I've read Bible few times but didn't see it's meaning from this side - from the way Jews understand it.
This is one of my favorite books so far. It brings unique perspectives and inspires good thinking about business and building wealth. Throughout the book I kept thinking "others need to know about this" and "I have to come back and review this until I truly understand it".
The Richest Man in Babylon. They were written in much different times and styles, but each gives practical advice on how to be prosperous.
I could not listen to this in one sitting. The book has a depth to it that requires thought. I often wanted to "sleep on" certain thoughts and revisit chapters to hear it again. This is a book you want to understand, not just listen to.
I found this to be a solid purchase and well worth the time to listen. Some great lessons within the stories. Did find some of the points a bit long-winded and winding before getting to the point. Would start to fade out and a key point would be made that brought me back. I think there's real value here. I would just suggest they edit some of the stories down a bit.
Found the narration fine, though I prefer when the author narrates his own book. I find authors know when to change their vocal inflection to make their point. Only critique I would make is at times I found the stories getting a bit long and wondering, feeling as the point of the story was getting lost but eventually pulling it back in and making a valuable lesson.
ZEN. LDS. GTD. FTW.
Lots of filler here. Some interesting tidbits, but also a few flat-out wrong statements that discouraged me away from finishing the audiobook.
Most worrying of all is that I don't think I learned a single thing that could help me in business. Is all the good stuff at the end?
It is by-far my favorite. The information is golden and practical.
It would need to be heavily reccomended
Prosper you must serve others
The information in this book is priceless. I enjoy the information and new view at the business world.
What a find. I throughly enjoyed this book. Rabbi Lapin brings clarity and invites you to think differently about things you though you knew. It should be a read for anyone looking to make a better living for themselves and others.
I'm sure this book is for someone, just not me. I found it an odd mix of religion and history that flip-flopped back and forth. Didn't see the relevance of much of it.
Didn't really care for the narrator either.
If you think you'd be interested in this I recommend getting it and if it's not for you use Audible's Great Read program to exchange it.
