Since I don't read anymore I always listen to audiobooks. This one was awesome! It was so easy to listen to and went by so fast that I'm buying the next one!
It is almost completely empty of anything thought inspiring.
I got through half of this book and had to stop. I found almost nothing worth listening to. I few quips here and there that were somewhat amusing but the best way to describe it is "empty". Skip it. Really. If I hadn't been warned by a few reviews I would try to get my money back...
I read a few comments about the narrator but chose to listen anyway. The same guy reads Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich". This is an excellent book for an entrepreneur looking to sell their business. The story is well written and the points at the end are very valuable. The next release should have a different narrator.
Great book. Read/listened like a movie. Can't believe what he went through. What a tough SOB. I'm glad there are people like Marcus protecting our country.
I'm in the process of starting my own business. I wasn't even done with the book before I received confirmation of Norm's advice. I just heard the part regarding having a relationship with a banker. I said to myself "I don't need a banker, I'm just starting small". The next day I spoke to a friend who had already started a successful business about how to finance the start up capital and one of his first questions was "Do you have a relationship with a banker?". Amazing. Needless to say I still have some work to do. Great Book! Very inspiring.
This is the first autobiography that I've downloaded. I listened to "Good to Great" by Jim Collins and how he said Lincoln was a Level 5 leader. Then I recently listened to "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill and how Lincoln was part of his Master Mind Group. The universe was telling me to get to know Lincoln.
I did not want this book to end. It reads like a novel and is seamless in its history. This book gives you great insight into why Lincoln is one of the greatest men that have walked this planet. I felt sorry when the book ended and Lincoln could not reap the rewards for all of his hard work and sacrifice. Lincoln deserves every word of admiration that he's ever received.
The narrator was excellent. His tone fit every moment. I've listened to books where the narrator is a robot and detracts from the experience. Not once do you hear him licking his lips or hear the saliva in his mouth when he speaks (listen to Stephen Covey read "The 7 Habits..." and you'll know what I mean).
I'll probably wait a week or 2 and then listen to it again. Excellent!
