I didn't really fully appreciate Sharon's input. she said in the beginning that she had sprinkles of her opinion throughout, but really she spoke very frequently, which at times, was distracting. I didn't like the way Carnegie was pronounced (with an egg in the middle). but this book's message was very profound and on time for what my life requires. must read, as much as Think and Grow Rich.
I have already sent it to two people with Audible's awesome gifting service. The performances of Dan John Miller and Phil Gigante are STELLAR. I would have given the book a perfect performance score if not for the regular, nasally, abrasive, religion-laden commentary from someone who I don't actually believe really understands Napoleon Hill that well. She made a point of plugging her own books a few times before I was halfway done with it, and if I could hit a button to remove her from the audio track, I would do so in a heartbeat.
Anybody but Sharon. The Devil is masterfully represented in a non-religious way (except for when Sharon chimes in with her own twist) and I could seriously see the interview sections themselves being made into a very informative and entertaining film.
Not really a story, per se, and the narration in character was superb. Their performances were engaging, in the correct conversational tone, and even dipped in enough humor to make the mainstay of the book a delight.
If I had that kind of time, I would, but then I would need to read it again and perhaps again (which, in truth, I plan to do anyway) to really absorb everything the author is hoping to convey. The knowledge in this book is far in excess of its cost.
Sharon is the reason we say in radio that you should never let the client cut their own advertisement spots. She is too busy blowing her own horn and pushing her own agenda and her own philosophies to allow the book to be truly appreciated. I found I had to put the book down after every so many interjections because, truthfully, I was tired of telling my phone to shut up after every such chorus. Sharon, this is Hill's book, not yours. Try to remember the editor is supposed to be the writer's SILENT partner if you are ever given the opportunity to again work on such a significant project. Thanks.
