I don't know about the print version of the book or the TV show. But this was fun to listen to.
I did not know that Dorothy Parker was so influential in the slang terms of 1920's. Thanks for that.
There is a lot of varied and somewhat helpful information.
I would have liked the book to be better organized so that I can listen to the relevant parts that I needed and then come back to the other parts as I needed them. (e.g. investments, real estate)
MAJOR pronunciation errors. Some repetition in the narration. The narrators reading is monotonous for the first 2 or 3 sections, and is extremely hard to stay awake with.
I would have liked a more lively reader for the base book "Think & Grow Rich".
The second professional narrator-reader (I have only gotten through half of the mega pack) gave a much much better reading with more naturalistic intonation.
The description of the book plays off the icon of "Think & Grow Rich" but the personal interests of the Jamie McIntyre should be made more fully clear. I understand that he may be very successful and even helpful but the majority of the book does not reflect ANY of the concepts of the base book.
(I'm still trying to get through)
I listened to the book 3 times in a row. It is very interesting and each time I learned more about myself and was inspired.
Highly recommend this book.
Yes, because I wanted to know how she would write an "adult" novel.
The beginning was a little hard to follow the introduction of characters.
Not sure really. I just can't sit down and read a book with my busy schedule so I prefer to read through listening.
No, the characters purposes I think we're filled completely.
It's a good book where the central theme is, again, around the children that we learned to care about as the main characters. The adults were very much either very regular, with regular problems and concerns, or overly dramatic like the "real housewives", whom I could not give two hoots about. How the children intertwined and manipulated the adult stories was the lasting effect of the book on me.
I would listen to this again in the future because in dealing with a person who has had a stroke it reminds me to be patient and teaches what to look for. I am sure there is more information that will be useful to me that was not immediately applicable in the first listen.
One of the most informative insights was the admonition to allow for sleep so that the body and brain can heal. I had forgotten the restorative powers of rest & sleep and laughed thinking of the patients in hospitals and nursing homes who have to be woken up at the crack of dawn to get their day started. Although it is not comical it is funny that all they want to do is sleep until a reasonable hour.
No, over many trips to and from the hospital.
Great book. Thanks for writing it. I hope doctors, nurses and other clinicians etc in rehab facilities read this and keep it on their shelves for reference. It is a unique perspective into the process of
I got this today and immediately listened to it during my workout and then while I was websurfing and writing a report. My interest was piqued by the author's appearance on The Dr Oz show. It has a great amount of information. It is also coupled with a PDF and reference to his website which both added value to the audiobook. I have not bought the book yet but I will at least take a look at it and see what I'm missing. However, I feel that this audiobook presented much more info than some of the other reviewers have stated. He presented the points stated in the review as promised. It was definitely worth the purchase. I look forward to seeing the results of the program on me. ;-)
