    ""Sampler""

    This was a fantastic resource. These 50 books all have different approaches and characteristics, and Butlter-Bowdin's descriptions helped me choose which books to persue in greater detail. I regularly listen to this audio to get new ideas for my next selections. Some of the books are a little harder to find than others, but this audio helps you decide which are worth the effort. Highly recommended.

    "Absolutely a Pleasure to Listen to."

    I discovered several books I hadn't heard about before and have added them to my list of purchases to make. The narrator Richard Davidson has a great voice that flows through the 10 hours of reading. I highly recommend it

    "Very Good Listen"

    I listened to this one twice then bought the hard copy! I am making my way through a selection of the books contained within. Very inspiring and a primer for those seeking success in business and life in general.

    "I enjoy the entire 50 x y z books."

    Do you want one big chunk of so so information or small digestible pieces of information? This is the latter .. small , manageable pieces of information. Not too much not to small .. Just enough to get you interested in the book / topic but not too much to ruin the entire book if you decided to pursue it further.

    Story
    "Talk About A Book That Adds Value"
    If you could sum up 50 Success Classics in three words, what would they be?

    It gave me a huge jump on finding the books I need to listen to


    What other book might you compare 50 Success Classics to and why?

    It stands alone based on what I have read (listened to)


    What does Richard Davidson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He emphasizes the right words and truly provides a narrative the way I believe the author intended


    What did you learn from 50 Success Classics that you would use in your daily life?

    That I not only have been choosing the right books to listen to but also an extensive reading list. It is sort of the Mother of all book reviews


    Any additional comments?

    Get this book! It will add a great deal of value to your quality of life

    "Another Great Book in the 50 [something] classics"

    I've listened to all of the 50 [something] Classics and while this one was good, it was the one that took me the longest to get through. But it's still great and provides a great summary of a number of significant works in the Success field. i hope the author plans to release some more books like this.
    i didn't have any issues with the narration either.

    "Nice succint summaries"

    Good summaries of many significant books. This quickly allowed me to learn a lot of interesting things from many books and later focus on a few of far greater relevance to my personal needs. It greatly exceeded my expectations. Great value. I found his earthy voice quite expressive and easy to follow.

    "This was really bad..."

    I was looking for a real sampling of the 50 classics. Instead I get a book report on each of the books. Not good at all. I enjoy these books for the motivation this provides. Each new sample kept me feeling that I had been suckered.
