After reading other reviews I thought that to buy this particular version of the book is a bad idea. But I bought it anyway, because I've read good reviews about it on the other websites. And I'm NOT sorry at all...
The narration is good. I've had no problems listening or understanding ANY part of this book.
The book itself is Excellent! Considering that it was written more then half a century ago, it still presents the idea that is valid and useful today.
The well marketed book "The Secret" is nothing more then a newer and much shorter version of this same book. The only difference is that "The Secret" presents you information openly (because it published today), and "Think and Grow Rich" pushes you toward the same idea without naming it (because it was published "back then", and the author probably didn't liked the idea of spending the rest of his life in mental institution).
Would recommend this book to anyone who wants to take control of his/her life. Listen to it it'll do you good (or in the worst case - nothing at all).
The reason this book remains a top seller is because it is amazing. I read it in paperback many years ago and loved it. When I found that there was an "original manuscript" I was intrigued. It is interesting to see what was left out and well worth the time spent. I feel like I have gotten much more out of it this time.
The narration is nicely done. Regarding the first reviewer's comment. The narrator is using the correct Scottish pronunciation of Mr. Carnegie's name.
If you have read or listened to other versions of Think and Grow Rich you need to listen to this one too. It is the original 1938 text. It is longer than most other editions but, it’s worth it. There are whole sections of this book that are left out of other versions. And I found those sections to be quite valuable. As for the narrator – I thought he was fine. His delivery allowed me to add whatever color I needed to as I digested the information
I first read the print version o fthis over a decade ago and it totally changed my life. Since then I have worked in over 30 countries, publised my own books and lots more I thought I would never accomplish.
Part one of this download is for me the best. Great case studies on achievement and how to face down the monsters that haunt us all. If you aren't familiar with this work then today is a great day for you to start.
This audiobook contains advice that can change your life. It has guided some of the most successful people in the world. I was irritated for a while by the reader. His voice is nasal, but I gradually got accustomed to it.
If you're looking for a mental boost to help you achieve your dreams and goals, you should use the information in this audiobook as your foundation.
Let's get something straight - TaGR is not a magic book. I've seen so many reviews with "don't alter the original, don't change it, don't add new content" that I was afraid of buying any other version. I have already read the book in paperback so this came as the next natural choice.
TaGR (this version) is good but it's not perfect. The naration sometimes it's not very exciting and it can get lost in the background. The story focuses on the TaGR methodology which is fine but it's sometimes alienating to hear examples from 75 years ago. The lenght is way too big especially since the principles are not so many.
So I enjoyed this purchase. However, I enjoy a lot more my copy of the 21st century edition. It's far better edited, the sound quality seems better (it's totally subjective) and it's far more relatable than to the classic.
Therefore, if you want TaGR on steroids, look for the latest version. It's far longer but it's worth it.
This book is a must for any entrepreneur or business person but equally it can be for any person that needs a change in thinking. Society teaches too much trash that riddles our thoughts and embeds the subconscious with the wrong thoughts, ideas and beliefs. This book is a good cleansing for any mind.
Napolean Hill was referred by a friend, and it is a good book, with much needed insight on how successful people think, and create their own success. However, the author does go into heavy, unexpected spiritualism. Near the end, I questioned the author's own sanity - was he very imaginative, or dellusional?
Good production value. Good narration that is not characterized, but not boring. Chapter selection is wonky, but a brisk reading experience that is thought provoking.
A very successful man revealing his secrets to well being, not only financially, but in all areas of his life. Interesting, entertaining, and very, very educational.
The positive reviews are right-on... This is a must-read book for those interested in how life works. You'll learn about how people work, and keys to a better life.
My only minor-complaint is that some of the scientific data is out-of-date, such as the suggested "scientifically supported" existence of Telepathy, and Ether, which have since both been proven to not exist. But if you can look past those errors, this is an amazing book.
