    Any additional comments?

    This is my 5 question system for appraising business and management books. It isn't perfect but it works for me, I hope you find it useful...
    Have I incorporated in my business or how I run my business any learnings from this book? Yes.Did feel I wa nted to understand really understand the book in depth, make notes and apply the content? Yes.Is it a book I’ve gone back to in order to check I really get the ideas and concepts so I can apply them? Yes.Is it a book I keep to hand on my mobile, where space is at a premium, so I can re-listen as and when? Yes.Finally, is it a book that has brought insights and moved me forward? Yes.Comments...Stick with it - I found it was literally 2 hrs in before it really got going. I have changed my goal setting system based on insights from this book. The narration is a touch irritating and the "musac" jingle but don't that put you off.

    "Interesting, educational and a great listen!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The ONE Thing to be better than the print version?

    I found the audio edition much more engaging than reading a print version, it kept me interested from start to finish!


    What does Timothy Miller and Claire Hamilton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    They kept me interested and made the stories flow nicely!

    Story
    "A re-hash of the original '7 Habits' !"
    What made the experience of listening to The ONE Thing the most enjoyable?

    Well structured.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The ONE Thing?

    It focuses on 'one thing'


    What about Timothy Miller and Claire Hamilton ’s performance did you like?

    Yes. Easy to listen to, although Claire Hamilton's accent is a little too 'Cheesy American' for this Englishman.


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

    Probably not. But possible.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a rather shameless duplication and re-hash of 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People'. If you have read '7 Habits' then it's an OK revision of the principles, stated slightly differently. If you haven't. forget this and read '7 Habits of Highly Effective People' by Dr Stephen Covey. It is much better.

    They refer to several studies and findings from other books on the same subjects, but in the audiobook they don't refer to the studies or credit other authors. Whereas 'The Power of Habit' by Charles Duhigg addresses this subtopic of the power of Habits in much more detail and complete with properly referenced source material.

    Perhaps I should nick a bit from all the authors I have read and re-publish it under a catchy name!

    "My favorite book"
    Where does The ONE Thing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say it's one of the best books.


    What other book might you compare The ONE Thing to, and why?

    Don't think it's comparable just think the other books are wasted compared to this one.


    Have you listened to any of Timothy Miller and Claire Hamilton ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No!


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

    I felt like this is the only book I ever need to listen to. Simplify everything other books makes complicated


    Any additional comments?

    Would listen to this book again and again and again and again.....

    "Cringeworthy"

    This book made me cringe from the outset with cheesy management and platitudes. Big Goals, Big Question, Mastery is a path not a destination. To get the right answers ask the right questions......uurgh

    "Solid, well researched, practical advice"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The ONE Thing to be better than the print version?

    How would I know that? I haven't read the book! However, I can listen to the audio version in the car, on triple speed, over and over again to help the advice sink in. I couldn't do that with the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not exactly a relevant question, its not about characters, its about how to live your life better.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    One thing that will change your life


    Any additional comments?

    Not exactly useful questions to review a non-fiction book. I've read a lot of similar books, and this one is clearly well researched, and has very practical and useful advice that can really make a difference if you want to make more of your life. Recommended.

    "Fantastic and thought provoking"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The ONE Thing to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the book, but I must say the narration is fantastic and the best that I have heard from the numerous motivation/inspirational books that I have listened to.


    What about Timothy Miller and Claire Hamilton ’s performance did you like?

    Timothy was fluid and well practiced. An excellent performance. I also quite liked how they switched between each other to break up chapters or highlight key points along the way.


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

    There was a few ideas within the book that challenged my previously held beliefs that had been created by other motivational books.

    It ranks to be at the best in content and new values.

    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Focus on one thing and why

    Build your focus and prosper


    Any additional comments?

    I did not think it could get any better.
