    Story
    "Do this and you have the answer."
    If you could sum up The ONE Thing in three words, what would they be?

    Where do I start talking about a book so transformative it leaves you in awe of the potential in yourself. I have been a lifelong student of business and life and I am awash with new vigor after listening to the book. I also own the hard copy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The One Thing. So simple, so unbelievably profound.


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

    I really like Claire's voice outlining and reinforcing core elements. Nice touch. I liked Tim too all excellent.


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

    Yes. A few laughs yes. No crying.


    Any additional comments?

    Do this. Get the book and do what they lay out. In my life I've achieved really cool milestones but still feel like it's not enough. Family, relationships, business, spiritually, all benefit from the strategy for better living in this book.

    Story
    "This one surprised me!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Much much much better than expected. Everything is perfect about it:

    1. Doesn't promote more stress and overwhelm. You're not asked to make lists, overwork yourself, etc – as it's often the case in other books in this genre.

    2. It's so well-written. Engaging.

    3. It's so well organised. Easy to follow and digest.

    4. The method is sound and logical.

    5. Perhaps related to point number three, but the music between the chapters add a positive note (pun intended) to the presentation and overall experience.

    Such a keeper, this book.

    "Alot of repetition"
    What did you like best about The ONE Thing? What did you like least?

    A really good point, and interesting, but this could have been written in two chapters.


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

    I got bored and could not get through to the end.

    I love AUDIBLE! I never get mad at traffic jams and can listen to many different books, despite my short time.

    Story
    "A SELF HELP BOOK"

    Priority is the word that define this book. If you know how to prioritize, make the right questions, you'll start a domino run in your life-- and make the halo effect though the rest of your life. A simple concept, but many pages too long, filled with self help tips.

    Story
    "Not a book for Me"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. After about 2 hrs I shut it off---You may like it, I had heard it all done much better in other Books. Just seem to me like a very slow repeat of older information. I love-Tracy, Hill, Carnegie, Maxwell, The Great Courses---If u like these don't buy this book


    What was most disappointing about Gary Keller and Jay Papasan ’s story?

    This is a rehash of very old Ideas. It takes forever for them to get to any point. My mind would wonder off and I wold laugh. This book is about focus


    What three words best describe Timothy Miller and Claire Hamilton ’s voice?

    Most audible books are slow--this one tops the chart here


    What did you take away from The ONE Thing that you can apply to your work?

    Focus


    Any additional comments?

    You may or may not like this book. It has been done much better in other books. Please keep in mind we all learn differently. This was just to long and boring for me. Remember you can return it for up to 1 year--So if you prefer a slower pace- Try it

    "What a bunch of fluff!"
    What disappointed you about The ONE Thing?

    None of the points in this book are new. It's simply a rehash of points made in many other, better, books. The points are not only old news, but there is nothing new added, and no depth to the authors' statements. Don't bother.
