    "Excellent content, performance could be better."

    The content presented is great.
    Mr. Tracy is a much more dynamic presenter than was evident here though. However, despite that I didn't find it difficult to understand.

    "I'll never buy another book by Brian Tracy"

    Although I really like Brian's books I have to say if you've read The miracle of self discipline, rain management and eat that frog you've heard everything he has to say. It's amazing the man can take the exact same material from these books put a new cover and title on it and say he has written another book. I wish the man would focus on quality more than quantity. I'm thouraly disappointed in this book just like the last couple of his books I have read. I won't be wasting anymore of my time with them.

    "Read, DO NOT listen to the book"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book had some terrific information and I may still order it in hard copy. However, the author unfortunately chose to narrate this book himself. Sometimes that works, in this case, it is a complete misstep. The author speaks in a barely varied cadence, that after a while, begins to sound almost monotone. Unbearable to think of listening to the entire book.

    Mr. Tracy, please do not narrate your own books, or consider some voice coaching to add excitement if you choose to go this path for your next book.

    I was frustrated I used my free credits on a book I ended up deleting after only about an hour.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Someone else besides the author narrating, or the author needs voice coaching.

    "PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! Don't buy this book"
    What disappointed you about Get Smart?

    It was drivel. It is mixture of anecdotal observations and rubbish.


    What was most disappointing about Brian Tracy’s story?

    It lacked any kind of credible scientific research. Statements like "through the miracle of compound interest"....it's not a miracle...it's maths. Huge over generalizations.....in fact it is cover to cover over-generalizations.


    Have you listened to any of Brian Tracy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Nope...and I never will.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger! This book prays on people who believe there is a formula to success...or a quick fix.


    Any additional comments?

    Please don't buy this book. If you have half a brain and are mildly successful move on....if you're looking for the answers to improve your life with this "work"....you might as well find religion or join a cult....it's about the same use as reading this book.

    "This guy is a smug prick"
    What would have made Get Smart better?

    A more practical/constructive approach that didn't talk about controversial and dubious research as though it were fact.


    What character would you cut from Get Smart?

    There were no characters,

    "Couldn't Get Through It!"

    I'm going to have to pass on all Brian Tracy going forward...I read one or two books of his that I liked, everything else has been garbage. Cliche phrases, repeated phrases, overused "statistics" and the same old quotes over and over again. I swear the last 3 books of his that I've read have been exactly the same. Not to mention he is monotone and boring with little to no supporting stories (which make a self help book interesting and bearable). I feel as though I have been duped again by Brian Tracy...but I won't be again.

    "Not worth it."

    I have read several other Brian Tracy books and found them highly motivational & extremely helpful. Books like, No Excuses & Time Management are excellent & I've read each of them multiple times. I've read his mini book--21 Tips for time management-- countless times & felt like it helps me more each time I read it. This book, however, was extremely disappointing. He makes several comments about the poor that I found a little offensive. Basically that they are poor because they are lazy, rely on handouts, see themselves as victims, and spend all there time watching television. I don't think this is true. Brian Tracy mentioned in other books, that you shouldn't read anything by someone who writes from their ivory tower. Yet, this is exactly what this book felt like. There ARE SOME good tips on getting smarter but VERY FEW. Other than talking about how amazing he thinks the brain is, he really offers nothing. The book acts and sounds more like a get rich quick book, never really presenting what he says he will in the title. Instead, the majority of the book is almost word for word copies of topics & tips he has covered in other books (mostly the three I mentioned). Not only this, but the book itself repeats countless times. There were instances where I checked to make sure I had not skipped around and was re-listening to segments I had already passed. Overall I would say not to buy this book, especially if you were intrigued by its title. Lean more towards his other books, which I will still continue to listen to.

    "if you have had 1 Brian Tracy book, have them all"

    Exactly the same content as other books. To summarise, work hard. Having recently listened to another of his books it was dissapointing that none of it was new
