    The Thank You Economy is about something big, something greater than any single revolutionary platform. It isn't some abstract concept or wacky business strategy—it's real, and every one of us is doing business in it every day, whether we choose to recognize it or not. It's the way we communicate, the way we buy and sell, the way businesses and consumers interact online and offline.

    "This one is just "okay"..."
    Overall

    With all due respect to Gary Vaynerchuk, who I think is a visionary and about 24-48 months ahead of the business world as far as innovation goes... this book needs more meat. Yes, there are business examples, yes, there are some interesting and funny stories... but it just didn't recapture the magic of "Crush It" which is certainly the type of book Gary CAN do, and which I rate 5.5 stars on a 5 star scale. I hope during the time he is writing his next book refocuses his attention on the few projects he wants to do well (to include his next book), because the result of spreading himself too thin could definitely be seen and felt while I was listening to this book. Sorry, but I gotta give this book a paz.

    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    What disappointed you about The Secret?

    The shortsightedness of the metaphysics theories, and the complete misunderstanding of consciousness science.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Bagavhad Gita


    What character would you cut from The Secret?

    The author.


    Any additional comments?

    Rhonda Byrne said on a radio show that the tsunami victims in Indonesia in 2004 brought it on themselves...? Enough said.

    Story

    Through an intriguing story of parents struggling with their troubled children and with their own personal problems, The Anatomy of Peace shows how to get past the preconceived ideas and self-justifying reactions that keep us from seeing the world clearly and dealing with it effectively.

    Colleen says: "Everyone Should Read This Book"
    "This had a ton of fake 5 star reviews at Amazon..."
    Overall

    ...which I didn't know were fake until I downloaded this thing and choked my way through listening to it. (Seriously, go read the 5 star reviews there - 100 of them all sounding like this is the best book ever written, and upon closer inspection, obviously a vast majority of them are fiction - you will agree if you listen to this book). So removing the fact that I was upset that those ratings caused me to buy this thing and waste a credit... my honest review... is that the book itself is a 2 star pretentious pile of poop... with an entirely too long parable that doesn't even come close to delivering on its promises... and that its insights are lackluster and freshman philosophy-ish at best. Download this thing if you hate money, and have absolutely nothing else to listen to. Honestly, I'd rather go talk to a stranger at McDonald's than listen to this thing. And I will never get those hours of my life back. So sad. :-(
