I'm a listener to Beck's radio show, but wasn't sure about a book (audio or not). I was pleasantly suprised. I loved it. I've listened through it once and expect to give it a second listen.
I was sorely disappointed with this book. It is filled with self righteous "I" statements...the author seems to fancy himself an expert on just about everything. Most of the discussion is eat right, stay healthy, recycle, etc....all good advice, but not what I expected from this book. The investment strategy information is minimal and followed by statements that while an industry or fund may appear to be one of the sound investments for the future one cannot be certain without extensive research....then the author concludes with information on how to establish an account with his brokerage firm!! He downgrades the marketing industry and has then succeeded in getting me to buy a book which is one big advertisement...I feel duped!
I loved "the Secret" , but the Power was no secret. It's not bad, but it just doesn't have the same feeling to me.
My favorite "rich dad" book. If you read only one, make it this one.
I usually don't read (or listen to) fiction, but I really liked this book. It was very interesting.
I listened to the first book in this series, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," and at the end thought, "That's it?? This can't be the end!" and then discovered it was a series. I've listened to all three books and thoroughly enjoyed every one of them. The author, reader and translator are all to be commended!
Really enjoyed this audio book. The production was wonderful and made it easy to listen to, understand, and enjoy. Instead of someone just reading straight through a book, it was filled with audio clips and interview sections from different people. I assume these were excerpts from the movie, but it was a wonderful audio format that others should emulate. I liked it very much. Oh yea...the message was good too. Full break down into the power of positive thinking. It has made me a more positive thinker.
I enjoyed this book very much. The story line was unique and the characters were all very believable. The reader was appropriate to the story...completely objective whether speaking from the point of view of the terrorists or the hostages. All in all a very good listen!
