I really enjoyed this book. I found that I was eager to listen to it whenever I could. I also have been talking about it with friends and family. It has given me peace of mind that I am doing what I am supposed to be going my own path toward knowledge. I found that the life lessons where interesting, illustrative and informative, but repetative. The repetitiveness of the stories without any further insight or information was unessesary and should be cut. Overall a fantastic book, with great wisdom beyond its years.
The main points are good. The cliff notes or summary would give you that info. If you've read other books like this you already have the backing info to use it.
The supportive stories are merry that, to support the points. Some repetitive and long. Although, if you want a good arsenal of time lines and quick biographies of various important people, this is a winner!
This book and Audible was were both recommended to me by Elliot Hulse, and for good reason. It continues to inspire me with every step forward I make with my life and pursuing my dreams. This is my third time finishing this book and will no-doubt cycle back to it again in the future. Each time reveals more, and encourages me in doing more. Get it
another tool in the toolbox. by far the best book I've listened to, lol and the only one I have literally listened to lol. There will be more. This book has given me another dimensional viewpoint at which I can add new ideas and concepts through the discoveries of others in the past, and some of those mentioned in the present. If you are found passing this book up, then surely you must consider yourself at the top, and are...in your own world.
I loved this book. It teaches you to e patient and find your strengths to succeed in life. It gives many examples of famous writers, painters, inventors, and scientists and let's you know that nothing beats hard work and perseverance.
I'm going to listen to it again.
A fasinating book.
It both gives insight the lives of some significant people, you learn a bit of history, and it is even a good reference book.
I am buying this book in hard-cover - to keep and to re-read parts of from time to time.
