Loved it. I'm recommending it to my entire Asea team to read or listen to. I loved the narrator.
Reader doesn't pronounce Andrew Carnegie's name correctly. He is mentioned often in the book. This is the same fameously wealthy man after whom Carnegie Hall is named.
The book is old and is filled with false theories about ether and vibrations of the mind. The premise behind the title is basically that if you obsess over getting money, it will happen. I think that is only partially true, but also unhealthy.
There were some interesting gems. I can see why it became a classic, but with today's science, it is not worth reading, even for the the sake of being well versed in the classics. I would highly recommend "The Millionaire Next Door" over this book. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
Did not regret finally listening to this book. There are some great points. Some of the social biases and examples are outdated and old-timey.
My father gave me this book at a young age. I was not ready for it then.
Now, at 25... I've listened to it. Absorbed and dissected it.
I never read past the first chapter when he first gave me the book.
Even if I did, I would have not grasp it or had the same appreciation for is as I do now.
It brought back many memories of conversations I had with my father.
It was almost, while listening to this audio book, having a conversation with my father.
Thanks audible. <3
So many good things to learn about how you think about yourself and the world around you in relation to money.
This is an old book published around the same time as Dale Carnegie's works, and contains some outdated language and world views, but there is still much that is relevant to this modern world that we live in.
Overall, there is a ton of good value in what has been presented in this book. It definitely warrants being listened to many times over, so as to fully absorb and apply what is being taught here.
