      "Steps to becoming big"

      I would recommend this book, the book might of been written many, many years ago but the principles still hold true.. Not outdated by any means.. David Schwartz is very engaging, the book is only about 4 hours long, but it can help huge goals become possible

      "Thinking Big makes so much sense "

      This book made so many things clearer for me with respect to what exactly needs to be done in order to attain my goals. It's encouraging, uplifting, and filled with truth and wisdom. It was exactly the pep talk I needed to get me refocused in the right direction.

      Story
      "This is old school, things have moved on!"
      What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

      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.


      What was most disappointing about David J. Schwartz’s story?

      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


      How did the narrator detract from the book?

      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.


      What character would you cut from The Magic of Thinking Big?

      None


      Any additional comments?

      It just feels as though this book is now out of date.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!

      Apart from the corny chimes in between each chapter, the content and messaging was clear, really value adding and easy to follow. Strong recommendation for self motivation...

      "The Magic book"

      I Read this book may years ago I enjoyed but never gave the really attention it need it nor understood its message, that is until now. I'm now 60 and I really understood what Dr. Schwartz is saying and how incredible true it is. I advice who ever reads this book to take it at heart and to believed it, because what Dr. Schwartz says is very true. I read it every morning before I do anything else to inspire me, because it will help me achieve what I set to achieve even at this late stage. it is really a magic book. thank you Dr. Schwartz.
