      Story
      "Too old school about "working hard, solves all""
      Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

      Some concepts in this book are helpful but this is the age of working smarter, not harder. At times, I felt like this book was funded by Big Business that wants to work people to the bone, and IF they prove themselves AND there is money available, may reward them financially. I feel this book had some good basic points but nothing earth-shattering.


      What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

      The basic concept that we all need to fine-tune our self-confidence is a good one which is nailed in. I think it was pretty predictable.


      What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

      Performance was fine.


      Did The Magic of Thinking Big inspire you to do anything?

      Acknowledge a dream I have that is often looked at as a "pipe dream." Ironically, the fact this book focused so much on business, my dream has nothing to do with work, but work will enable me to get there. Work is a means to the end for me which I keep in perspective and can still be an excellent team player but not compromise myself or my time to do a quality job.


      Any additional comments?

      This book feels old school. "Success" is not just measured by salary, house, and size of car. Success means many things to many people. Success can mean being happy and loving your life, going after your non-work dreams, loving every moment of your life.

      "My go to for over 10 yes"

      This gem of a book was introduced to me by my brother. I have a handbook copy by my nightstand and an audible version for when commuting. This book has inspired me and lifted my spirits countless times throughout my career and family life. I will never go without it.

      "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 Not outdated by any means..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
