I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
This is a good book but it's long winded and at times he defently get's off into the weeds and at other times i wished it would just end. A couple good bullets here and there see what you think.
Greetings. My brother introduced me to Audible in 2011. Since, nothing but enjoyment. Hopefully my reviews are very useful to you. Enjoy!
Both I would consider both great.
Yes and in addition to that once every 6 months. It's that impactful.
Must have for those that want self development.
Yes! It's at the pinnacle of teaching someone how to attain success.
Having a burning desire for what you want and transmuting that desire into it's monetary equivalent through persistance.
His son born without hearing capacity (physical equipment to support hearing) but through desire he learned to hear through bond conduction of sound.
It was an epiphany! I'm 50 years old now and I'm just acquiring this knowledge.
Wish it was part of my high school's curriculum.
The stories in this book will help you to understand the trials many amazing people have gone through and give you an understanding that you can do what you want as long as you commit.
Everything, this book is amazing!
The author's son and how he used faith and positive infliction to transform his bleak life.
Everything about Napoleon Hill and how he mastered the mind.
How to apply auto suggestion to your everyday life.
An absolute must for anyone trying to find the foundations of a successful and positive lifestyle.
While I was impressed by the amount of time and energy the authored poured into this endeavor, it was at times difficult to listen to, because of some of the antiquated perspctives.
"A business classic!"
This book is an absolutely fantastic look into the what people now call the ?millionaire mindset?. The book is the combination of 20 years of studying some of the greatest inventors, investors and Business men of the time and in fact the century, people like Henry Ford, Alexander Bell, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie. It was actually Andrew Carnegie who encouraged Hill to write the book and study the great minds of their time.
The book goes through topics such as Imagination and discusses how once a person can imagine something on ones mind then it is possible, Desire, in which he tells of the deaf child who finally heard and how if a person desires something badly enough he can and will achieve it, auto-suggestion and how having positive thinking can affect outcome, procrastination, imagination, the brain itself and fear. The most interesting section, however, I believe is on his ideas of sex transmutation; turning sex drive into a positive force instead of a destruction one. For the 1930?s his ideas were certainly revolutionary and for the most part most of them still hold. Some of the content is a little dated but in general Hill was on the money!
In essence this book is what Richard Parkes Cordock tried to do with the ?millionaire MBA Business Mentoring Program? and his inspiration for the millionaire upgrade in which Hill?s book is constantly referenced.
I honestly believe that this book should be compulsory for anyone studying business in either High School or University. It for me is one of the best books of in the area of business motivation.
The narration at times can be a little flat but it certainly gets the main points across. If you were looking for a book with a little bit more humour and life then Brian Tracey's "Success Mastery Academy" is certainly worth a look and similar topics are discussed.
Best self help book ever. Changed my way of thinking forever. I am looking forward to a new rich life. Thanks Napoleon for being so clear, concise and truly inspirational.
It's a classic on the printed page and every bit as good (probably even better) on audio as you can listen to great inspiration whilst driving, lying in bed or jogging/ working out!
The original,and outdated, yet still one of the greatest books available. I really enjoyed the narrator, what cannot be said of the other versions. If you're considering this book, choosing this version is a good idea.
"must read book"
I am sure if you as somebody who is millionaire he would had read this book. This is a book which should be read atleast 10 times. If anybody read this book 10 times and apply its principle he will surely be rich in any area he desires.
This is one of my fabourite book and everytime I read this book I find new ideas
"Awesomeness at its best..."
This book is the best investment I made in my life so far...It has lead me to many other books that educate, inspire and empower me. Very clear and well spoken by the narrator I would recommend this book as part of the school curriculum
"Excellent personal development book"
Intelligently written, easy listen and thought provoking book. Could literally change your life. This is a Text book not a novel you will need to study it and return to it time and time again. The secret is in there if you are looking.
interesting conceptions. struggled to finish. weakly and boringly narrated. all in all worth spending time.
"Overall, very informative"
Some very good advice, though coupled to a lot of Philosophical BS.
I can do without the author's philosophical ideas.
Most of the advice is excellent - similar to many modern motivation books.
Very helpful book, it has helped place me on the right path for my business
