    It seems that some people are born to achieve anything they want. Some would say they are lucky, are blessed, or have the Midas touch. But what truly is the reason for their success? New York Times best selling author John C. Maxwell has the answer: The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.

    Francine says: "Life-changing perspective"
    "Great Book for Those who Have a Pessimist Attitude"
    Overall

    As always, Maxwell does a great job at clearly covering a topic in an organized and easy to follow way. This is a great book for anyone who is in the trap of negative self-talk and can't quite seem to take themselves to the next level. It's also a great book for anyone who simply wants to give themselves a good re-charge of their optimism.

    Maxwell gives 15 great ways to make failure become a stepping stone to success through viewing it differently. If you have recently suffered a failure and can't get out of the dumps, buy this and listen to it!

  • Why We Want You to Be Rich: Two Men, One Message

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 34 mins)
    • By Donald J. Trump, Robert T. Kiyosaki
    • Narrated By John Dossett, Skipp Sudduth

    Story

    Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki are both concerned. Their concern is that the rich are getting richer, but America is getting poorer. The entitlement mentality is epidemic, creating people who expect their country, employer, or family to take care of them. And like the polar ice caps, the middle class is disappearing. America is becoming a two-class society, and soon you will be either rich or poor. Trump and Kiyosaki want you to be rich.

    Warren says: "Dubious content lacks substance"
    "Great for Improving Mindset"
    Overall

    I've previously read some of Trump's work as well as a couple of Kiyosaki's books, so I was familiar with some of the content already.
    I enjoyed getting a deeper look into the way these two men think and why they make the decisions they do. I read a lot about business and investing, and this book had some fresh thinking which was a nice change of pace.
    As an entrepreneur myself, I was able to get some good insight into how to think about business.

    If you are looking for specific examples of how to get rich quick, this is not the book (and beware of any that make this claim). However, it is a great book for getting you to start to think in a way that will lead you to wealth and business ownership. A good starting point for future books that cover the specifics of what they talk about.

    My favorite quote was "the people with the most security have the least freedom - those in maximum security prison." A great visual for getting out of the employment "security" mentality.

    I would recommend this to someone who is on the fence about leaving their "job" to start a business.
