      "Changing the way you think and act."
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      I would certainly recommend this book as it provokes any reasonably intelligent person not to compromise if they want more in life.


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      None stood out remarkably as the overall effect of all of them contributed to my high regard for the book.


      Which character – as performed by David J. Schwartz – was your favorite?

      Same as above


      Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

      Not really but still equally enjoyable listening to it in sections

      "zzzz......"
      Would you try another book from David J. Schwartz and/or David J. Schwartz?

      This book is nothing new. The narration is not the best. However if you have problems sleeping I recommend listening to it when you go to bed.


      Would you listen to another book narrated by David J. Schwartz?

      No way


      What did you take away from The Magic of Thinking Big that you can apply to your work?

      Nothing much.


      Any additional comments?

      This book would have been a lot more pleasurable to listen to if it had been narrated by Erik Synnestvedt or similar even if the contents are pretty average. In my opinion the quality of the narrator makes a huge difference, regardless of the contents of the book.

      Would you listen to The Magic of Thinking Big again? Why?

      I wanted to reread this book for last several years. I tend to focus on reading new books. audio program made it easier for me to listen to my book while I was exercising.


      What was one of the most memorable moments of The Magic of Thinking Big?

      Several quotes. The spoken examples by different speakers made it easier to get some idea about the tone of the voice and how it comes across.


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      We all do not think big enough and should refer to this book once a month


      Any additional comments?

      I was wishing if there is a way I could get a book like this in audio format. About a week later I got an invitation to join Audible.com. Universe does listen.
      Keep up the good work.

      "Great book, easy and fast read."

      I haved listened to many motivational books, this is one of the best. The author who reads some of the book may sound old fashioned to a young person but the message is true and useful. This is a book to read more than once and it will help you develop more positive thinking. I discovered useful wisdom in the book that I have already put to work in life. I listened to it twice and plan to listen again.

      "Money well invested"
      Would you listen to The Magic of Thinking Big again? Why?

      Most definitely.. Upon every listening I discover something new. This book is easy to listen to.


      Would you be willing to try another book from David J. Schwartz? Why or why not?

      I learned practical actions to take for this author. I would definitely try another book of his.


      What do you think the narrator could have done better?

      Nothing really, he did a great job in using different narrators in cases to give the book a more realistic touch. But some of those narrators had dull voices. Not the best I've heard.


      Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

      It made me take a good look at my weak points. Every time he mentioned something that I was affraid of doing I would feel resistance building up inside of me. This uncomfortable feeling got me into action. Im grateful for that.
