The content of this book is so good that I need to purchase a hard copy or Kindle copy for future reference. However the author should have taken his own advice and invested in professional narration.
Excellent content; well thought out and plenty of depth.
Painfully, painfully slow.
I don't think this particular topic needs a follow up. It is complete. Johnson does have books in several other niches that can be considered by persons interested in those niches.
I would have given this a five were it not for the narration. Johnson is educated, articulate, and a good writer - just not the right person to be narrating. The narration is painfully slow, which I suspect is because in Johnson's own words, the price of the audio book is based on its length in hours. His diction is reasonably good, but his ability to be expressive about subject matter that he clearly cares about, is totally lacking. Keep this in mind if you buy the audio version, but if you're interested in this topic you should buy another version immediately. It's every bit as good as a "course" on the topic for which I paid $300 - and a whole lot cheaper!
I would probably listen to it a second time, but not a third. The narration is fine; the writing is definitely dated.
This is one (or rather, three) of a kind.
Jason did a good job with narration. He had some excellent content to work with, but it was buried in a writing style that was obsolete a hundred years ago.
Thoughts create things. They didn't actually use those words, but they sum up the whole law of attraction (which may not have actually been so named at the time these books were written).
I'm a self professed self-improvement junkie. My focus, to be honest, has been largely on increasing my financial wherewithal. I've read and listened to material by some of the greatest on this topic, including Harv Eker, Joe Vitale, and many others. I worked backwards to find the roots of their teaching - and it all seems to start with this guy with the goofy name, Wallace D. Wattles.
So my advice to you is, if you want to improve your health, your wealth, or your general position in the world, start here and go in whatever direction is appropriate for you, rather than working backwards as I did. This is the source.
