    Story

    The stories in this book are great, but the narrator was racing through all of the stories - as if it was a race! My mind did not even have a chance to absorb any of the concepts. If you are okay with pausing at the end of each story to mentally appreciate the thoughts contained in each story, then this book is okay. Otherwise the book will be over before before you know it.

    Story

    This is a very good book that contains a lot of valuable information. However, some of the comments contained in the book we a little over the top (brown nose -ish). But other than those instances, which I admit is subjective, overall I think the book was great.

    This is the legend of Hafid, a camel boy 2,000 years ago, and his burning desire to improve his lowly position in life, as told to his apprentice Erasmus. Hafid relates the story of how he became known as the Greatest Salesman in the World. His success lies in the wisdom of ten leather scrolls passed down to him from his master, Pathros.

    James says: "Inspiring!"
    "Slow beginning, but once U get 2 those scrolls...."

    Story

    To me, this book had a slow beginning. But I had really purposed to listen to the whole book. In the end, I really enjoyed the book because the essence of the book is really contained in the scrolls that the author speaks about. A very great book that is definitely worth the listen.
