Take out the editor's inane and useless commentary.
The narration was fine
I am sure that Napoleon Hill had some good points because he always does but I couldn't finish the book due to the insipid need of the editor to interject every few minutes.
I don't know who thought it would be a good idea to let the narrator "improve and clarify" the original work but it was a HORRIBLE idea. I don't think the people who are intelligent enough to choose this audiobook, and take the time to listen, need everything explained to them. Just let the book stand on its own and keep your comments to yourself.
This book completely changed the way I see myself, my surrounding and the people I associate with. This self conflict book brings points that helped me further understand my flaws in the way I look at success and failure. It outlines two characters with two very different views of the world. One being the master manipulator and the other a strong willed character who's purpose is the force the devil character to confess his way of control in the minds of the "simpleminded". The book displays such a strong message that only one's with the necessity to control their owns minds should indulge in this wonderfully write book.
When the Devil broke down his main tricks he uses to control the minds of the "Drifters"
They brought the passion of the manuscript as if one was in the room of the meeting.
I suggest this book for any one who wishes to start the journey of business and wish to control their own minds.
Thought provoking, inspiring, I saw myself in his words. I have changed because of it.
Napoleon of course. He was concise, highly prepared, relentless, and always probing for the answer. I was amazed at the questions, and the answers from the
That I can change. I can stop being a drifter even if it is day by day, step by step. And thru these changes I can begin to live my life, with zest, direction and freedom. What a wonderful gift Napoleon has given us. This whole world needs the message of this book.
Only that I have recommended this book to at least 15 of my friends and my biggest wish is that they do the same and the message begins to spread. It is GOOD news and people need to know there is hope.
The narrators were superb. The voices were compelling, especially the Devil. Very very well done and something you could listen to time and time again. Give up that next Starbucks with cookie and just GET this book. It is a marvel.
It was read in a creative way, with different characters.
I liked him, interviewing his dark side.
It is not about the money. It is about how you want to use the money.
I liked that he used Samuel Insull as an example of how not to end up. I've heard that Orwell invented Citizen Kane as mixture of William Randolph Hearst and Samuel Insull.
I was recommended this book during a Seminar that I attended. It draws many ideas and subjects from Napoleon Hills master piece Think and Grow Rich (Currently Listening to that now).
I found the audio both entertaining as well as it excited me to begin to apply the information in my life.
The interview with the Devil is powerful and there is a few funny jabs.
No. I will never buy anything associated with Sharon Lechter. Her opertunitistic and severly irritating interruptions on each passage and sub-passage greatly detracts from this great art. Even after the Devil makes it clear that "loosely organized opinions" are nothing more than egotistical expressions and one of the greatest sins of mankind, she still continues to frequently interrupt Napoleon's writings with irrelivant conservative stream of consiousensess muddled ideas. Not only was this book from Napoleon Hill blocked from being published by his family for nearly 80 years, at its publishing, a conservative, unintellectual and religious spin on Hill's amazing work is attempted through Lechter's exasperating interludes. Brilliance Audio, please publish a version of this book that does not require the audience to push the fast-forward button every 3-4 minutes.
Publish a version of this book that does not contain adlibs. Letcher comments are simpleminded and unorganized.
I was determined to finish this book because of the reviews I read about how transforming the information was (it was pretty good), but I had to listen to it just a little bit at a time because the narration was choppy.
This is a must read for anyone who wants to be successful and fulfilled. It should be standard reading in every high school and university. To bread the next generation of leaders and independent thinkers. An astounding revaluation of universal truths!
I loved this book. It is so timely and spoke to many issues and challenges I've had in my life. I can also use it for clients as well.
Napoleon Hill wrote what nobody dared to say or declare. The Devil, or the Adversary rather, will suck you into drifting through life with no purpose. This book has made me more conscious about my daily tasks and many times I ask myself, "An I drifting?"
