The Magic of Thinking Big gives you useful methods, not empty promises. Dr. Schwartz presents a carefully designed program for getting the most out of your job, your marriage and family life, and your community. He proves that you don't need to be an intellectual or have innate talent to attain great success and satisfaction - but you do need to learn and understand the habit of thinking and behaving in ways that will get you there.

I've never written a review for anything, much less an audiobook, but because I've found this book more helpful than any I've been through, I felt obliged to do so. Although the book is geared toward success in business, the principles taught in it can easily (and should be) applied to your personal life. This book is essentially applied, practical cognitive behavior therapy...adjust your thinking to adjust your behavior and, in turn, the behavior that others exhibit toward you. I've found that this book has helped more with my attitude and mood than any other book that was geared specifically for improving those two aspects of your life. There is entirely too much good advice to succinctly comment on all of it, but I can assure you that you will benefit from the information taught in this audiobook. I also like the fact that the audiobook was it's own production meant to be an audiobook, and not a dry, verbatim reading of the text version. Do yourself a favor, listen to the book, and enjoy better relationships with yourself and the people around you.
Living is easy with eyes closed... and headphones on.
It just really stroke a chord with me since all of the advice made so much sense to me and is so practical.
You can listen for 10mins and already be well on your way to improve any aspect in your life.
Hard to choose, so many goodies in here.
Just the idea that belief manifests into reality is so positive and powerful encouragement.
I highly recommend this audible. I'm in school and reading time is limited but i LOVED listening to this when going out for jogging. Makes you feel empowered. Thank you audible for making this book into an audible version!
I have been a student of Personal Development for over a dozen years, this is a great "starter" book.
It was more of a reminder.
He spoke clear. The message was easy to get..
The poor narration on the 'skit' level and the outdated ambiance ..
Worth what money you pay....understand the message, dont focus so much on the negatives...
Inspired to grow and help others to be better individuals to contribute as a whole.
The lecture, the structure and organization of the book chapters.
It guides you clearly that makes you understand the content very well.
David Schwartz indeed. His way of introducing emotions into the story, the way he conducts and introduces the topics makes the book fun, easy to understand and follow.
Oh yes. He is clear and concise.
Yes, it was amazing to learn all that information. I laughed mostly.
No more comments but great book indeed. A book that i encourage everyone to read and i assure 100% that will change anybody else's view of life.
I liked the audio version as I can listen to it throughout my day while I am doing other things
He gives great examples and specific tasks to help the listener move towards bigger things in their life, specifically in their professional life and work
Organize his thoughts this thing was a mess
Pay a narrator his narration was awful
I would send him back to the drawing board to organize his thoughts it was all over the place.
I would recommend this book as a companion piece to Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich". It helps to underscore a many of the principles learned there. It is also excellent standalone with great suggestions and principles for success.
ok for the target
I confirmed some ideas and got some new perspectives on other.
I loved this book so much. It tells people how to suceed without kicking ass.
When the author says about excusitis which is the disease of failure.
"This is old school, things have moved on!"
Had this book provided some grounding and research as to why the author was suggesting to do the things he did then it would have been parallel with many more contemporary offerings. More substance would have improved this read immeasurably.
A talk at you approach of old school American, motivational "positive mental attitude." When there are such great books around about the psychology of how our mind works and how to control, ("The Chimp Paradox" by Steve Peters for example) this left me cold as it just felt like a bunch of buzz words and nothing more
The narrator was okay, fairly easy to listen to but given the type of book it was the content which was at fault more than the narrator.
It just feels as though this book is now out of date. Research and evidence is what is required. Its a big title but little more. A real shame!
"Motivating book well worth a read"
Really gets you to start thinking about your future and goals. Very positive book lots of very good tips that I plan to use going forward.
"cheesy but great content"
really liked it, a lot of stuff that makes sense worth another read just incase i missed something
Very engaging narrator voice and great lessons learned with some really great practical exercises to change your life in a BIG way.
"Nothing new under the sun"
I thought this was a business book but it turns out to be another self help book. Full of the same old cliche's you have heard a 1000 times before, with nothing new added. Lost patience after about an hour. Unoriginal and boring. Not recommended!
"When did we forget how to do this...?"
When we were kids, it was easy to think BIG! Big was best - our dreams and hopes were great and unlimited, then somewhere along the line, we forgot how to think BIG! This book is a great reminder of just how to do this. Written in a clear, unfussy style, it shows how think BIG can pay off in all areas of your life!
It was amazing book. Thank you. Really helped me learn. So good. Can't believe how much enjoyed. So good. The best
