    "So much more than I expected"

    This book was full of inspiration and interesting stories. Best of all every chapter ended with a call to action and questions to help guide you through turning your dream into a reality.

    "Motivational!"

    One of the most motivating and inspiring books I've read to pursue your dreams. The audiobook narrator did a wonderful job depicting the tone behind the words. Well done author and narrator!
    P.S. I've never commented on a book, but this one inspired me so much I had to recommend to others.

    "fantastic book! so well rounded and well written."

    This is a book that is good enough to have 30 different bookmarks in it! He refers to so many different areas of business that can cause hiccups and even disaster. Have a listen to this book over and over again at different bookmarks?

    "Doubletalk to Infinity and Beyond"

    A struggle to listen to the dry material as well as the dry delivery of it.

    "Can't finish it"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book is definitely for someone wanting to take the leap into entrepreneurship, to start a business and probably to do it on the internet. I don't fit into that category, although the chapters I got through did have some nuggets I felt I could use.


    Has Dream Year turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I tend to be selective about "self help" type books, I thought this one would be different but I couldn't get into it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator over performed to the point that I couldn't focus on the subject matter. A lot of long dramatic pauses. Lost my interest early on.


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

    If you are looking for a nudge to start that business and you are inspired by this type of book, then you may enjoy it.

    "Get Rich Quick"

    It talks about achieveing your dream in generalities. Unfortunately, it's another case of someone making millions fromf buying their book and then joining their service.
