I like to read anything that improves the mind and anything to do with fitness. My goal is to holistically listen to all interrelated audio books.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is on the dot. I've read and listened to several books of his already and is always refreshing and informative. The information you get out of this is practical. As soon as you are done listening to it, you can use the learned skills after you are done with the audio.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Time Power?

    I wish I can remember all 8 hours of it, but what I remember most is how to finish BIG tasks single minded before doing anything first. Like I said, it's practical and it worked right away. I mean it's obvious that you have to do the most important tasks first, but there is more to it. Brian Tracy explains it effectively without wasting your time.


    Which character – as performed by Brian Tracy – was your favorite?

    I like that he is very calm and informative. He might sound monotone, but I got use to it. His fresh information keeps me glued.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    That time can never be bought back .

    Based on Stanford University psychologist Kelly McGonigal's wildly popular course The Science of Willpower, The Willpower Instinct is the first book to explain the new science of self-control and how it can be harnessed to improve our health, happiness, and productivity. Informed by the latest research and combining cutting-edge insights from psychology, economics, neuroscience, and medicine, The Willpower Instinct explains exactly what willpower is, how it works, and why it matters.

    Where does The Willpower Instinct rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    So far this is one book that I can say is most impactful out all the other books I've read about self-development.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Willpower Instinct?

    If you are having trouble, just acknowledge the trouble and tell yourself it's ok.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like the study of the kids carrying bags of hershey's kisses to school and was told not to eat it. Techniques that were given to the kids were easy but amazing.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    So practical, you can use it after seeing it.

  • Infinite Possibilities: The Art of Living your Dreams

    Manifesting our dreams isn't about hard work -- it's about belief, expectation and, above all, knowing the truth about our place in the universe. Mike Dooley's manifesto, Infinite Possibilities, affirms that in our world of illusions there is no finite allotment of whatever your heart desires, especially not happiness, and that experiencing more love and new possibilities is limited only by the scope of our ability to imagine and act upon each.

    What disappointed you about Infinite Possibilities?

    The author is too descriptive. By doing that, he overdoes it and repeats a lot of the same stuff in different ways. You'll enjoy it through the first 2 hours of it, but, like I said, he overdoes his story telling and makes it boring. Makes you wanna go, "get to the point" or "tell me something you didn't say already". Sorry! Other might like it, but overall, I wouldn't listen to it again.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Try Brian Tracy! He is my favorite. Everything I listen to is affirmative and uplifting every time.


    What aspect of Mike Dooley’s performance would you have changed?

    Have him write something that is less descriptive and to the point instead of repeating the same stuff by changing the words around. Also, it starts to sound like he is making stuff up. I would enjoy it better if he cite his work. He makes it sound like he is an expert in all aspect of life.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Infinite Possibilities?

    A lot of his repetitive stuff.


    Any additional comments?
