    Story

    This recording is an unabridged and unaltered rendition of the original best-selling blockbuster published in 1937. The book continues to be widely read and studied today. Mr. Hill spent more than 20 years following the careers of, and talking to, many of the most successful men in the country. What he discovered is that they all had certain ideas and attitudes in common. He was inspired in particular by Scottish-American businessman Andrews Carnegie who urged him to research and write a book on what it takes to get rich.

    Story
    What did you love best about Think and Grow Rich?

    After reading Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Poor Dad, I heard that this book was also great. The content is ridiculously rich, and has saved me tremendously during my financial hardships. Thanks to it, I followed through with my venture and am now prospering comfortably with my new empire Money Coach Alex [dot] com. Many times I felt like I'd fail, I went back to this book and got the necessary push to persist and succeed. A life saver indeed.


    What other book might you compare Think and Grow Rich to and why?

    I might compare it to my second favorite: Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, because while they both talk about how to get rich, they also both have different approaches to teaching you how to do so. I was lucky enough to have read both before tumbling on and succeeding in my venture.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Killavey – was your favorite?

    He didn't have too many performances, and honestly, in the beginning, I was quite annoyed with his style of narration, but I did enjoy his interpretation of Darby's Uncle getting "whipped by the colored child".


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not cry, but I did chuckle a bit in some parts. But I definitely got an extreme reaction, the day I felt like quitting my venture, and had the audiobook on pause for a few days. I decided to pick it up in hopes that it would encourage me to keep at it. And like a miracle, it was towards the end of the book, the chapter that speaks of the Ghost of Fear of Ending Broke. That was exactly what I was feeling at that moment, and it was a clear sign that I needed to conquer that fear right there and then.


    Any additional comments?

    Do get this audiobook, but read AFTER you've read Rich Dad Poor Dad. Rich Dad will give you more of a need to get into Real Estate whereas this book will help you strive in whatever venture/hobby YOU enjoy. Do read them in this exact order and visit me at Money Coach Alex [dot] com so we can share ideas. Good luck all!

  • Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money - That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!

    Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Rich Dad Poor Dad the most enjoyable?

    Recommended by so many, I finally decided to give it a try. The life lessons in them were priceless! I must admit, I thought about joining in the Real Estate movement. But combining what I learned through here and through Think and Grow Rich, I finally found the courage to build my own empire Money Coach Alex [dot] com. Since then, I've been on the road to financial freedom and I have these two books to thank.

    Always remember: take risks, and stop thinking like an employee!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    I enjoyed how he's started at such a young age, and how he explains clearly how to think like an entrepreneur.


    What does Tim Wheeler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This guy's children and grand children must be happy because he narrates the story amazingly! Fantastic!


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    - Take risks.
    - Stop thinking like an employee.
    - Invest in what you believe in.
    - Seize the opportunity that's given to you.
    - And an emphasis in the first two insights listed above.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich as a complement to this wonderful book. As stated previously, these two books helped shape my current empire with Money Coach Alex [dot] com, and I plan on building many more successful ones, once I finish with my Entrepreneurship certificate. Good luck!
