    Story

    When Jeremy Hardy decided to explore his ancestry it was, in part, to get to the bottom of his grandmother Becky’s dubious claims that the family descended from a certain 17th-century architect and that, more recently, Jeremy’s great grandfather was personal bodyguard and confidant to the King. Other legends range from the uncle who died in police custody to the wronged Victorian aunt who bore an illegitimate son.

    Story

    Jeremy Hardy is a very funny guy, and although the odds are stacked against him trying to describe the intricasies of a family tree in a non visual format like audio, he kept me entertained the whole time. It was a pleasure listening to all of the challenges involved in getting the right information, the emotions he encountered on every step of his journey, he descriptions of his and others foibles, and his deep honesty.

    The true secret of high achievers is that they know how to find their focal point, the one thing they should do, at any given moment to get the best possible results in each area of their lives. In Focal Point, Tracy brings together the very best ideas on personal management into a simple, easy-to-use plan. Focal Point tells listeners how to develop absolute clarity about what they want and how they can achieve supreme satisfaction, both personally and professionally.

    Poorly recorded. Also it really sounded like he'd had enough saying the same thing numerous times.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    If you hadn't ever read anything by Brian Tracy before - or any self-help author you may learn some things.
