This book pretty much takes Napolean Hills, Think and Grow Rich (which I recommend to anyone) and turns it into a dialogue between two people.
Where I really got turned off was when it was said repeatedly that for success a person has to work 80 hours a week (not something in Think and Grow Rich). This is just ridiculous. To have to work 80 hours (that's 12 hours a day Monday to Friday and 10 hours a day Saturday and Sunday each week) is not success. I would say that is more failure in my eyes. Success is being able to have more freedom and enjoy your life. Yes you have to be ready to work hard when you have to and there will be some long hours sometimes.
I suggest paying the reasonable price for Napolean Hills original works and you will get much more and more clear without the unnecessary added conversational bits.
I've been a fan of Leonard Nimoy for a long time but listening to this book, and listening to it brought forth by Mr. Nimoy himself, has given me an even greater respect for him.
He is much more accomplished that I thought and is much more than Spock. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the book. It is much more interesting than I expect from a book of this type.
If you have a collection of related works most of this will not be new to you but if you don't this is a pretty thorough course teaching things that you need to focus on to achieve.
It is presented well and is well organized.
If you want to write a book of any kind this is a great book to guide you.
There is no fluff and filler here only great teaching and direction. It is a short listen which is good because you can listen over and over and make notes or simply commit the process of writing a book to memory.
This book is more about the process of writing and how to get your book written instead of just dreaming about doing it.
When a topic like Science and Religious Experience is the focus I have a little caution. Depending on the authors bias and preconceptions the results can be more of a soap box for personal opinion than an objective study.
I did not find this to be the case with this. Through the whole listen I didn't feel any bias was present but rather a thorough study of religious experience and true scientific analysis of possible explanations.
When a solid scientific explanation for something could not be called upon to describe something there is no attempt to try and use that as some sort of proof that it must have a divine source. Nor is a divine source ruled out. It is left as a question.
There is a great deal of information packed into these lectures and I believe it is a great listen to anyone religious to shed light on some of the experiences that can be brought into question and by non-religious to help understand better what religious experience is to a person who has one.
This is by far the best source I have found for the latest research and information on this subject.
I was very pleased with the content of this book.
From start to finish it is full of interesting information. Some books tend to have a certain amount of filler or wordiness to make them book size. This one has none of that. It is interesting and well read all the way through.
I was very disappointed in this book. Not recommended at all.
The lectures felt like he was jumping around and not following a logical progression through history.
It sounds like he doesn't really study the bible as one would expect from a person giving lectures on the history of the church.
There are comments that make it sound as if he really is not a deeply interested in the subject.
To be honest (and I hate to be so negative) I thought it sounded more like he just quickly skimmed through the bible before recording this. There are errors in some of his statements concerning what is actually written.
Yes Zig is a Christian and he doesn't hide that fact. For people of like faith it is a refreshing collection of encouraging and motivating advice with biblical reference brought in once in a while. For others who don't share his beliefs it is still full of great wisdom that is very relevent regardless of the odd bible verses tossed in which some might not like.
He is a speaker and motivator very highly regarded and comes highly recommended to anyone.
To make it even more enjoyable he has a great sense of humour making it a fun listen as well.
I read a number of reviews complaining about the quality of the narration. It kept me from purchasing this book for a while but finally gave in.
I found the narration a perfect speed and tone and easy to listen to. I don't know where the negative comments have come from unless it's been re-recorded and re-posted.
This book is full of very useful information from start to finish. I highly recommend it.
Though this book is free to download it would be worth purchasing.
I was surprised to find this book about free, which was free to download actual is a very interesting book I would highly recommend. Opened my eyes to how things are marketted and how I could prosper with my own products and services.
I'm not sure how this book rates with people who are taking Psychology as a college or university course but I would guess it should rate high.
The naration is pleasing to listen to and the book is easy to follow and understand.
There is a whole lot of good content and very interesting.
