    Millions of people throughout the world have improved their lives using The Magic of Thinking Big. Dr. David J. Schwartz, long regarded as one of the foremost experts on motivation, will help you sell better, manage better, earn more money, and - most important of all - find greater happiness and peace of mind.

    "Low end of the personal development strata"
    Overall

    Well this one is for the meek. It's to help little office ladies to ask for a raise. I'm sure it will help many out there, but folks wanting the better end of the social development strata should avoid it.

    If you're already running your own business etc. and already know what a backbone is to an extend it's a waste of time. I got to chapter 2 and hit delete to get the hard drive space back.

    We've all seen it before: the ambitious leader who enjoys great success and then, inexplicably, crashes and burns. Perhaps this leader has been you. Leaders can't sustain effectiveness if they can't sustain themselves. Resonant Leadership offers inspiration, dozens of exercises, and other tools to help listeners become and remain successful leaders in their work and in their lives.

    "Is there any practical content at all?"
    Overall

    Gosh this is the worst book I ever bought from Audible.

    There is zero practical information in it. It's all fluffed out hot air. Just repeated terms, like the never ending use of the word "resonant".

    I would have loved just two powerpoint slides, slide 1) the problem 2) the cure, with bullet points to each, that would have covered the entire book and saved hours of painfully boring trifling on and on waiting on any content.

    It's bad. Nothing practical, nothing you can use and even the stories in it have very questionable interpretations.
