      "Very Inspirational!"
      Would you listen to The Magic of Thinking Big again? Why?

      Yes, if I'm feeling down on myself. I felt very pumped while listening to this book.


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

      Making a commercial for yourself to yourself is a great and hilarious idea.


      What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Magic of Thinking Big?

      Most all of it. A lot of it is common-sense stuff like smile, be sincere, and stay enthusiastic about your work, but having it all laid out like this and the step-by-step advice is really what makes this book valuable.

      Story
      "compared to most modern audio books"
      Where does The Magic of Thinking Big rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

      It actually sounds like you are listening to well done audio program as opposed to some boring monotone recording... multiple voices/ points of view


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

      keeps you paying attention because of the change of pace


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

      most definitely... however there is so much info that you have to pause and really think about.


      Any additional comments?

      This is my 13th audible book and roughly about 50th audio book I've ever listened to, and by far this is the best format... and most engaging book.

      "Basic book for newbies of the genre"
      Was The Magic of Thinking Big worth the listening time?

      For me, not really. If you've listened to more than a handful of spiritual or psychological self-developement books, you may already be beyond the content here. Nothing new.

      "Phenomenal, practical advice"

      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.

      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.
