This should be compulsory reading for everyone. Mr Hill explains in very practical terms how to be successful. His advice is very simple and easy to actually carry out. You will become very rich, in spirit and financially, even if you only follow one of his points. His experience is based on 20 years of research and interviews with highly successful leaders. He has broken down their traits into the 'laws of nature'. He explains how nature works and, in his witty way, how you can make use of it too. This is not a 'motivational' book that would leave you feeling inspired but with nowhere to go. Mr Hill has a message that is permanently effective as you will start to change the way you think about things, or start to use your 'noodle'.
His explanation of definiteness of purpose is fundamental to faith and success in all its forms. It does not matter whether you are religious or not in order to understand this, he explains how faith actually works.
The series is narrated by Mr Hill himself. The series just oozes with his witty and enthusiastic approach to life. He is clearly enjoying what he does and is getting paid to do it. This is how everyone should feel about life.
Think and grow rich
This must be the original author on effective life skills.
This is classic British humor. As the story was written written in 1886 I never imagined it would appeal to my modern sense of humor. I was wrong. Any fan of Monty Python, Dilbert or The Far Side will find themselves rolling on the ground laughing. I have been surprised by the interest from my 8 year old son. He makes a point of taking this audio book to bed with him. I dont have to worry about foul language that soils modern commedians, Jerome uses delightfully descriptive launguage which everyone in the house appreciates and understands.
Three men in a boat, by the same author. It follows the same format of being a collection of short stories. If you are not quite satisfied with one story then there will be a dozen others that appeal.
I enjoyed them all.
“I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.”
Listen to all Jerome's books read by this narrator. I am!
