    Story
    "NOT unabridged!"

    I was disappointed to find out that this is NOT the unabridged version of "the richest man in Babylon". I have read this book before and wanted to get an audio version. This book is not by the Napoleon Hill foundation, but George S. Clason, the author of the Magic Story is not mentioned either, which I find disrespectful. I found the information given in the book description to be misleading because of the huge abbreviation and no credit given to the actual authors. However I did enjoy the summary made by the Napoleon Hill foundation at the end of each story.

    Story
    "Two Classic Parables, By: Napoleon Hill Foundation"

    A great listen and quick reminder of old Classics. If you want a quick pick me up as to why you are doing what you are doing to become healthy, wealthy, and wise, this is a good Audio book, condensed for convenience. Only for those who believe in themselves, or are ready to believe in themselves.

    "Life changing short stories"

    These stories bring light to the fact that success is an option under any circumstance. More importantly how to achieve it.

    Story
    "Rich beyond dreams...."

    A great story about a simple truth. Wish that this was taught to every young person in school today.

    Wish someone had told me this story many many years ago. Still, I shall apply the principles, for, "a person, being alive, has not yet failed..."

    "Very good message"
    Would you listen to The Richest Man in Babylon & The Magic Story again? Why?

    I enjoyed both of these. He summarizes his teaching in story form, both ancient and modern.

    "Corny, but worth the information."

    It is a bit campy, but I did like the information the book gave me.

    Story
    "Disney..."
    Would you try another book from Napoleon Hill Foundation and/or Credit No?

    Sorry but some of the stories I've seen from Disney on film turn out to be more amusing, interesting and with more deeper insight...


    What was most disappointing about Napoleon Hill Foundation’s story?

    boring...


    Would you be willing to try another one of Credit No’s performances?

    yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No...sorry(why am I saying sorry...?)

    Story
    "Simply #Success in a nutshell"

    I really liked this book.

    Both stories are so simple yet captivating and with so much information and truth to it.

    I would recommend everyone to read it, at least a couple of times, and make notes. I think this book and material should be mandatory at schools, and discussed in forums.

    This version even has a summary of notes at the end, so what else could you ask for.

    Buy it and read/listen to it NOW!
