Having worked as a Trainer and curriculum designer for a number of years, I can truly appreciate the thought and planning put into this work. It’s really very, very well done. When looking for a method to learn a new language, my requirement was simple: I had to be able to do this while travelling. I had used another method that displays pictures and associated words, which seemed to work well enough, but the problem with that method was that I had to be near a computer to use it. I spend a lot of time travelling, so I needed something that I could simply listen to and repeat. I was not disappointed, and I recommend the Pimsleur method for anyone that travels; even if you just have a long commute. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes, and if you stick to it, it will stick to you.
Can't say too much more without giving away secrets; but I will say that although this really isn't my type of book, the quality of writing and excellence of narration were extremely enjoyable, and I highly recommend the read.
"Work hard for a long time"...
"Work through the pain..."
"Never give up..."
.. and my personal favorite:
"Having goals is critical to achieving goals."
Don't waste your time. You've heard it all before.
I suppose that if we all took the time to actually think about these things, it might seem.... almost obvious. However, we don't.. but we should. And that is what happens here. An excellent read, to be sure.
Great book! I was impressed by how well the author knew me! I also really enjoyed the ongoing, and at times direct, comparative analysis made with philosophies of other psychoanalysts, and the lterary references made to help illustrate certain points. The organization of the writing is inspired, and every chapter builds further on previous reading.
Well-performed version of an American classic. A good look at life in the city in the early 1900's.
Another "self-help" book about someone that helped himself... although apparently the help was never needed. I found someone wealthy speaking about "curing wealth" to be less-than poignant.
Unremarkably typical I-was-poor-and-now-I'm-rich-so-you-can-be-too tale of personal woe and "triumph". Mr. Winters' narration is inarticulate, colorless, preachy and passive.
Don't waste your money.
