    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It's possible of having a few insights on the investment styles of this "audiobook"(although I have great difficulty of seeing it as a complete book, because it is so short), the essays are really to quick to deliver the depth required for the useful appliance on the hard practice of financial practice.


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    Not from the same publishers.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    A bit too fast.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Because of the above reasons.

    What would have made Napoleon Hill's Keys to Success better?

    If it was based on the much longer, original version of "17 keys to Success", it would have been excellent. I bought thinking it was the same unabridged, but not at all!


    What about Joe Slattery’s performance did you like?

    It was good.

  • The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work

    Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work.

    What made the experience of listening to The Happiness Advantage the most enjoyable?

    The author was able to make an efficient and pertinent selection of "practical strategies"for achieving flow and fullfilment in life and at work.

    Although most aspects and researches presented I had seen elsewhere (for exemple, most principles have a direct relation with Martin Seligman's research on positive psychology), the overall work of synthesis and presentation is very good. I recommend.
