    The Scottish-born son of a failed weaver and a mother who supported the family by binding shoes, Andrew Carnegie was the embodiment of the American dream. In his rise from a job as a bobbin boy in a cotton factory to being the richest man in the world, he was single-minded, relentless and a major player in some of the most violent and notorious labor strikes of the time. The prototype of today's billionaire, he was a visionary in the way he earned his money and in the way he gave it away.

    Too much history - when someone was sick and why - too much info - too long! Take the short version! Great story though - self made and hustled - I liked it!

    Rockefellers - same thing as above!

    This leading-edge program by Esther and Jerry Hicks, who present the teachings of the non-physical entity Abraham, will help you understand the emotions that you've been experiencing all of your life. Instead of the out-of-control, knee-jerk reactions that most people have to their ever-changing life experience, this work will put those responses into a broader context. You'll come to understand what emotions are, what each of them means, and how to effectively utilize your new awareness of them.

    Against a richly detailed backdrop of history, the story of this unique American family unfolds. It begins with John D. Rockefeller Sr., who amassed a fortune amid the muck and disorder of the Pennsylvania oil fields and left his son to deal with the public outcry.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Rockefellers again? Why?

    I thought it was good - lots of history - but by the 4th generation - well who are they and what are they doing - wasn't that interested - the first Guy and then the ones after for 2nd and 3rd generation up to lots! Too long - 32 hours or more - too much.


    What other book might you compare The Rockefellers to and why?

    I also did Carnegie - that's a lot of listening too! Was good though but too long.

    Pastor Joel Osteen writes how we can generate Friday's level of contentment and joy every day of the week. Known as a man who maintains a constant positive outlook in spite of circumstances, Osteen has described this message as a core theme of his ministry. Combining his personal experiences with scriptural insights and principles for true happiness, he shows listeners how every day can hold the same promise and opportunities for pure joy that they experience at five o'clock on Friday.

    What made the experience of listening to Every Day a Friday the most enjoyable?

    I always did the self help/ success programs - found Joel through a Christian guy that said he was good. The crossover is amazing! To know that God wants me to have everything - is great! Can't say enough - more Joel!


    What did you like best about this story?

    To know that God wants me to have everything - is great!


    Have you listened to any of Joel Osteen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Listened to all his books - all great!


    Any additional comments?

    Great - buy it - you'll listen to it again and again
