    "Another good book"

    Great book ! Extremely inspiring. It was worth every minute spent listening to it. I rarely have the time to complete listening to a book in one go, but for this one, I made the time. Thanks Les

    I love these short "pep talks". Of course it was great because it's Les Brown.

    "Great lecture"

    Les Brown is always a great guy to listen to. I always feel refreshed and inspired when I listen to him. If you liked The Power of Purpose, you'll love this roughly hour-long addition.
