"Christian author and motivational speaker Andrews effectively combines self-help with fiction to catch readers' interest, sustaining momentum while simultaneously passing on instructions for positive thinking." (Publishers Weekly)
I was not certain what to expect from the book and was uncertain about the reader at first. But I became thoroughly enthralled by the reading and the story. Wonderfully inspiring.
Suggested book from a mentor. Exceeded all my expectations & I plan to suggest this individuals on my life that I feel would be blessed by reading it.
It took a little while to get used to the narrators voice, but I actually ended up finding it familiar. This book is one of the most incredible books I have ever known. Such a talent in writing and an incredible message!! Definitely a favorite.
Steps for GREATNESS
This book would will make you the best person you can be, and leave you feeling you can take on the WORLD!!!!
I not only would recommend this to a friend, I'm planning to buy several copies as Christmas gifts! Every family, especially those with young children, should own this book, and read (or listen to) it several times a year.
I love Mr. Andrews' voices for all the characters, but after listening to the audio version I decided to borrow it from the library in order to read it as well, and realized his emphasis in some areas was different than mine - which brought more meaning to the passages. Of course an author is going to know how he or she means for a particular scene to be interpreted, and listening to the author narrate the story makes a huge difference.
I really enjoyed the story line of the book. It is very positive and uplifting. I like the idea of using historical characters to establish common sense thinking. It is always encouraging to see writers communicating strong moral conviction in a practical way.
I enjoyed the thinking involved in the conversation with Harry Truman the most. Making a decision to drop the atomic bomb is fascinating and feeling like you were a fly on the wall listening to his thoughts was really eye opening.
I am afraid that I would not be able to listen to Andy Andrews read any other books. As much as I loved the book, Andy was really hard for me to listen to reading. I only finished listening to the book because I had promised a friend. I did enjoy the book, but felt like I would have enjoyed it more, if I had just taken the time to actually read the book.
See Headline above.
Expected and predictable.
I thought the core, overall point(s), of the book was very good and applicable to life. It is very easy to listen to and understand. The story itself feels a little contrived at times, and Mr. Andrews narration took a little getting used to at the beginning.
