Good details about Herod.
Bill tries to add some tension or drama to the story by making strong definitive statements and it rubbed me the wrong way. There is no way that anyone could know the truth about certain things that he says as absolute. You also cannot argue against his bold statements, because you do not know either. Just don't write it under the guise of historical fact.
They make a good attempt, but just don't do it. Find a better option.
They use some British words that pop you out of any serenity that you tried to get yourself into.
Self Image is Powerful
Failure and Success Mechanisms
I found myself talking with people about what I had learned several times after listening to this book. It is most powerful in the middle. A plastic surgeon's view on how self image drives our lives. IQ is not the most powerful predictor of success in life, it is self image.
If you are a thinker, this one if for you.
The definition of wealth is "how long you can live without working". That fancy house will be working against you if you don't have a job - that is not the measure of success. The concept of assets vs. liabilities is clear and make you want to get income generation vehicles; not more things. It is a must read for everyone who thinks they are getting ahead. Maybe you are not. This book is well produced and you will enjoy listening to it. It has a nice story baseline.
Assets are all that matter.
Yes, this is time well spent. I would recommend this book.
It starts off good, but really drops off as the concepts that you are learning become really basic in the middle. The foundation is good.
I don't thing that I have listened to a book with more injected words. It is just too many. It is understandable that changes were made and they did not want to re-record the entire book, but the edits really add no value and it is mostly just one or two words each time. It is almost a demonic kind of injection...:)
People must believe that you have the power to effect them and if you are fully present, with warmth, you got charisma.
If it would get to the point and help you to see the path to becoming a Linchpin would help. It talks in general observations about the world and repeats itself.
He beat around the message and never really gives it to you.
Get a pro to read it.
Could be so much better and so much shorter.
Yes. If you need an "I can do it" kick, this is a good read
Natalie is great to connect with in her story.
She has a lot of personality in her reading, because it is about her and her core.
You are great if you will just show others, they will love you and what you do.
If you are trying to write a book, I would recommend this one. She is cool and easy to fall in love with as you connect with her story. The theme is just write. Volume is king and being open and raw is the key. Read this book to write yours, but also just read this book for the fun of it. Let a new friend in your car - you will enjoy it.
The quality of thought was high. I enjoyed the value these two guys bring to the thinking of the time.
It is not about characters, but themes Christ brought to the world and the various take each Godspell writer had on them.
Justice through peace or Justice through violence.
It made me think. I like to listen to a book that gives me a new thought that I had not had myself. There are a few good nuggets in this book.
This is worth it. I generally like this type of book, but most times these type writers will be too high brow or pompous to be worth the time. These guys are just trying to explain.
They also do not seem to have an agenda of converting your or proving that God does not exist. The are reflective with context.
Not really. There are better stories.
It was OK. It was not as much the reader as the writer, but I lost who was who. I listen to books a good deal and this is not usually a problem.
No. It was finished.
They made a movie of this book. Start with the movie...
This is a quality story about people. Struggle, intrigue, politics, character - it has it all. One of Follet's best.
Not religious. I recommend it - you will not want to turn your car off.
