    Story

    I really enjoyed the way the author has set up learning vocabulary: She tells a story that is full of vocabulary words, then defines the words after each part of the story. It allows the listener to hear the word in-context and define it. However the author's catch-phrasse of "verb-a-licious" (which is used throughout the listen) was corny, and a little suggestive. But otherwise a good listen.

    In Acres of Diamonds, Russell H. Conwell shows us how to identify the riches and opportunity that lie all around us. Many people search their entire life for opportunity never realizing that everything they need to succeed is already within their reach if only they recognized it.

    Story

    I really enjoyed the "down-to-earth" storytelling of RH Conwell, but this version is hard to listen to.

    The narrator, Jason McCoy, has such awkward phrasing and inflection in his voice, it's difficult to determine when a paragraph, story, or sentence begins & ends. In each sentence, he's like an announcer gearing up his voice (tone, volume) for a big announcement, then never getting to the announcement, then gearing up his voice again. Basically, he puts emphasis on the wrong parts of a sentence, which screws up the intention of the sentence, and the listener's experience. It makes the content very hard to follow.

    I would strongly recommned "Acres of Diamonds," but NOTHING narrated by Jason McCoy.

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. The narration was very good - natural, easy to follow. No problems with tone, inflection, accent, or quality of his voice. It's always great to have the author narrate an audio book, and Schwartz does a wonderful job.

    The content of this audiobook is wonderful. Schwartz tells you exactly what you need to hear - how thinking BIG can change your life.

    Bottom line: Very easy to listen to, and good content. Highly recommended!!

    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.

    Story

    Having never read the book, I thought the book would be more in-depth than the movie. However it appears that the book (especially the audio-book) was written after the movie, and is only slightly more info than the movie. It's still interesting info, though. And it's nice to hear the voices of the different contributers.
