Good advice on several different areas for starting and running a business from someone who has quite a bit of first-hand experience.
Sedate, moist, and ??? The narration can put you to sleep or annoy you (make sure you listen to the sample before deciding to buy the book), since he has a pretty sedate speaking style, and it sounds like he has too much saliva in his mouth while narrating. The only way I could tolerate it without being distracted was to listen at a pretty high speed (2-3x setting on Android), which solved both concerns for me.
The chapter on sales techniques was particularly useful and interesting to me. That seems to be one of his clear areas of strength from many years of direct experience. He presents a number of techniques for handling a pretty wide variety of sales situations.
Overall, I recommend the book for anyone considering starting a company, and even for those who are already working in an established company, since some of the advice is not only for start-ups. I felt that some of the advice seems a little "old-school" and also contradicts some guidance from other more modern start-up audio book authors that I recently experienced.
I think like most of Brian Tracy's work, he distills often complex areas into clear concepts that then requires you to think about how it specifically applies to your situation. This program won't tell exactly what to do. However, it goes over the fundamental aspects of running your business, I expect to listen to this over and over again and after each time I've implemented some ideas.
It's Brian Tracy. Everything he says is true, useful, important and actionable. Do what he says (not just listen) and you see improvement.
That said, this audio program appears to have been cut and pasted together from disparate source. Some of them sound like he's using a Dictaphone in a bathroom stall. Others are top notch.
Additionally, he makes the same point over and over as if he hasn't made the point before. Again, because they come from various sources.
Fair warning on the above two points. If audio is a pet peeve for you, skip it. If you get irate at some repetition, likewise you'll hate it.
BUT, if you're like me and you just look at the value of the content. If you value repetition. If you can forgive imperfect audio. It's a winner.
Really, the value for the price can't be beat.
My suggestion. Get it and use it and ignore the slight negatives.
Brian Tracy is brilliant and provides numerous helpful business startup tips and strategies.
Zig Ziglar seems to have influenced Brian Tracy's information along with Maxwell.
The narrator at times sounded as if he was in the bathroom and throughout the book there was the sound of unswallowed saliva. It was very distracting at times.
The beginning portion where Brian Tracy calls for immediate action.
This audio book would have been superb if the narrator used a 'pop' blocker and drank more water.
The content of this book is exceptional. It's more of what Brian Tracy has been talking about and teaching for years. However, I couldn't listen to this book because I was announced with the recording quality. I've listened to Brian Tracy audio books before and they weren't like this. In this book he sounds like he's sucking on a life saver during the recording. I don't want to sound mean, but I'm letting you know. Listen to the sample before you buy. It was a waste of my money, because I just can't listen to it. It grosses me out. If you want to listen to a great book by Brian Tracy, go for No Excuses! Fantastic Recording quality and the content is absolutely fantastic!
"A precise map for every aspect of your life."
Recommended for everyone, in every walk of life. One of the best audio books I have heard from any genre. Stay with it it's worth it. I'm now going to listen again.
