This is my first listen to Les Brown. It was very much what I had expected (although I thought he pushed it sometimes with his weird laugh) but I do think it was short and sweet. As a motivational speaker, Les does bring forward great thoughts for the mind and soul. Above all, listening to him is most entertaining and brings much hope in one's abilities and faith.
Although I haven't read the series Star Force, I didn't find it difficult to follow with "Army of one". It is well written and I look forward to start listening to the series. Highly recommended.
I was disappointed because the book is great and written in such simple, articulate and easy language, however the narration is horrible! It is the same tone all the way that eventually my mind drifts away and he doesn't finish the sentences right so one might find two different stories narrated as if they are one!
When my wife had her Nokia more than five years ago, whenever she needed to change her ringing tone, she would ask me to do it. The minute she got her first iPhone, she was all over it at so much ease and at that time I thought: "Gosh, the guy who invented that must be brilliant!!".
This biography literally changed my life prospective and made me see so many things I never did! What can I say?! it made me a rebel and I'm no longer tolerant to pitiful mistakes. Steve is the pinnacle of self declaration and confidence. His management style is so effective it could turn around cultures of countries (not companies) in matter of years.
This is beyond a must read for any person looking for what is missing from our life these days: passion.
I have to admit that I don't have troubles planning my financials and this isn't why I bought the book; I bought it because of the author's style in narration.
I don't have to tell you how exciting the book started and when Dave started spelling out the baby steps, I found this book having real solutions to debt issues in all of its kinds. His advice was sincere and real because he has been there himself... Twice.
I would listen to this book again. If not for a great advice, surely to have fun listening to him
I listened to this thriller because I have some kind of affection to sci-fi and the ratings were high. The narrator really drew me in immediately with a very passionate voice and the story started building up. It took great twists and turns almost I lived it. The nice thing is that it turned into a legal thriller; I guess I learned a lot there.
I is worth your credit if you enjoy happy endings
I'm not sure if this is a fantasy or flash of thoughts that the writer had and tried to put in words! To help the reader of this review, then if you like to hear couple of new ideas (two to be exact) then I can put them now in two sentences and you may skip on the story!
I was contemplating writing a bad review first, then I changed my mind! I have to admit the second part didn't have the same impact as the first one, however there has been a lot of innovation and diversity in the story that I felt compelled to write a good review. The sequence of events is well ramped up and logical.
I just started with the third and from the 16K plus positive reviews, I can't wait to go all the way till the Capital is brought down!
It is worth your credit.
I believe in empathy and its role in building organizations. Actually, empathy is the real driver for the success of families, organizations and countries for that sake!
The book is surely entertaining, but the narrator makes it boring! I tend to drift away because of the low tone consistent voice.
I can surely relate to the content and do advise especially hard working managers that sometimes don't seem to understand where is the problem to read it. this is the missing link
I'm a science, business, psychology books person and long time ago, decided to buy a novel and didn't finish listening to it although I tried. I came across The Hunger Games as a best seller so I thought it is time to lighten up and give it a try... IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT... not really but it took me sometime to adjust and I was hooked.
I can't say what hooked me exactly but everything about it is wonderful and carefully studied. For that, I think it is a masterpiece.
Give it a try. Your One Credit would be well spent.
