I'm giving this five stars because of the vast quantity of new and helpful information contained here. This is going to require another couple of listens. It really is powerfully motivating. If you liked The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson, you will love this. Actually, I would recommend reading The Slight Edge first, because it removes resistance. An unabridged audio of Edge isn't available but the print book is short. Then listen to this Brian Tracy. Brian talks about all kinds of things, it's really a complete package. As some other reviewers noted, there is an annoying sound, like cough-drop sucking. For a while I thought Brian just had a smacky mouth, but it would happen when he didn't speak too. I agree, it's distracting. Also, Brian may be a dynamic public speaker, but audio isn't a public forum. He's soft-spoken and along with the smacking sound, it's not appealing at all. Someone with a strong clear voice would be more congruent with message being delivered. That said, just get over it and focus on the message, it's really great.
If you were motivated by Wheat Belly, this will do the same. Similar in genre, but not content. Lots of research to back up the author's claims, and quite a bit on ADHD, autism, and how children are impacted by the foods they eat. Shocking, some of it, and it just reinforces that we are each responsible for what we know about the food decide to eat. Eyes wide open awareness is what it takes to be healthy, and this audio book is an enlightening listen.
I have listened to this twice, and the second time was better in that the material began to "stick". I am learning about Self-Esteem in a whole new way. There is a great deal of misinformation about what it really is, so this is very eye-opening. I'm reading "Taking Responsibility: Self-Reliance and the Accountable Life" right now. I am noticing where and at what times in my life I have possessed the most power - real power, over myself and my choices, and it is becoming clear just why that was. I shall create it again, because nobody is coming to do it for me. How liberating. This audiobook gets my highest recommendation.
