Not many people who speak english. And not man who do not. It was just a boring book with no emotion from the narrator. Scratchy voice was irritating too. Sorry.
Very boring. An occasional gem in there. But it seemed like she took the best of Anthony Robbins, Wayne Dyer and Zig Zigler with the book "The Secret" ughhh thrown into a blender and made an audible soup out of it. Nothing new ,but then, what do I know. I kept nodding out. I love Anthony Robbins,Wayne Dyer John O'Donohue,Meister and 80% of the self improvement authors who even if they are repetitive,they are adding in a hidden gem of their own some place. The flashy cover was the only thing interesting about the book. Maybe Ive read too many self improvement books and Im saturated by now. Who knows?
Arika Escalona was the one who was putting me to sleep! Dr Jill just kept me there. One of the worst narrators. definitely an intelligent sounding woman, very sweet, but, as dull as dull gets.
I must say this book made me feel depressed. As if I lost my ability to enjoy the written word anymore. I felt like I need a Valium after trying to stay awake to it. I dare anyone to try to listen to this entire book without dozing off. Even 40% would impress me.I AM taking into account I have been using Audible and Kindle way too much this past month, so maybe it is harder to keep my attention than yur average reader.
This is not a good team for writing and narrating books. I literally kept waking up to go back to the beginning where I left off over 20 times and after I dozed off after laying in bed over 12 hours, I just became very depressed and said....never again! I wish Audible gave us a 60 min browse to see if the combo of narrator and author was really what we wanted to buy. Now I must go back and re-read all the reviews who pushed me into buying this. Were they relatives of both women? First book by Audible that made me this depressed. I felt Nurse Ratchett was going to come out and bash me over the head when the book finished, I had such a headache. Yet as I said, if you can stay awake, there is an ahhh hahhh every hour or so.
This book should be in the $2.99 bargain box at your local bookstore. I never heard anyone ramble for 7 hours on what could have been said in probably 10 minutes. I already knew it was nurture not nature. And I also know it takes about 10,000 hrs of practice to become an expert at most things. So I need him to ramble on that being intrigued and interested in your sugbject is the true determining factor? Let me sum up the book for you and you can send me just 1 dollar. Find something you will stick to,but make sure you love it so much that you will enjoy practicing 'after" you become great as well." Thats the entire book. Dont waste your time on this. The really sad part of this is that it lets you know that most of us who are not obsessive people have no chance at being great at anything. Why? Because if we practice as long as the next expert, but our normal mind is also thinking about other enjoyable things, you cant be great. Why do you all think the class nerds who had no interest in girls, sports, or anything exciting always became the most successful. Life is a rigged game, is the only lesson Ive learned after 7 hours.
