    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, the story line is a little cheesy.


    What could Rhonda Byrne have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Bring down the expectation that if you sit there and wish for something it will just simply come to you.


    Did The Secret inspire you to do anything?

    No. I think hard work and dedication is what pays off. Sitting and wishing for something won't necessarily happen without action.

  • David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants

    (2527)

    In David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, or cope with a disability, or lose a parent, or attend a mediocre school, or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks. Gladwell begins with the real story of what happened between the giant and the shepherd boy those many years ago.

    In Imperfect, Jim Abbot retraces his remarkable journey. Born without a right hand, Jim Abbott as a boy dreamed of being a great athlete. Raised in Flint, Michigan, by parents who saw in his condition not a disability but an extraordinary opportunity, Jim became a two-sport standout in high school, then an ace pitcher for the University of Michigan. But his journey was only beginning. By 21, he’d won the gold medal game at the 1988 Olympics and cracked the starting rotation of the California Angels....

    Napoleon Hill, born into poverty in 1883, began writing as a reporter for small town newspapers while just a teenager. When industrialist Andrew Carnegie commissioned him in 1908 to interview over 500 successful men and women to help prove his theory that success could be distilled down to a clear-cut formula, Hill met with hundreds of the richest and most famous people of the time.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Grover Gardner’s performances?

    No. Was left with the impression of very outdated philosophy.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is extremely outdated. Some points might still be relevant today but the story line and the references made are much to old to relate or reference. Extremely long with irrelevant information.

  • How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 4 mins)

    Story
    (278)

    The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: Success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues for a very different understanding of what makes a successful child. Drawing on groundbreaking research in neuroscience, economics, and psychology, Tough shows that the qualities that matter most have less to do with IQ and more to do with character: skills like grit, curiosity, conscientiousness, and optimism.

    Easy to read/listen. The author keeps the topic relevant and to the point. No over the top research wordings which helps to make the book easy to understand and follow.
