    "This book is NOT another bland rehash of old material!"

    I was blown away by the degree to which Chris Friesen helps the reader dissect his/her personality tendencies. By scoring yourself (my wife and I helped score each other) in regards to five distinct tendencies you not only end up with a new perspective on yourself, but you are also able to immediately use that newfound knowledge to start modifying behaviour. It all made so much sense! This is a self help book that you can actually use to help yourself! This is NOT another bland rehash of opinion and conjecture. This is an impressive book produced by a results-oriented author. Chris Abell delivers the material crisply and clearly. He sounds enthusiastic about the subject matter. Once I got into the personality tendencies section of the book I realized I was listening pretty enthusiastically! I can't wait to listen to the next book in this series.

    "Achieve for a healthy, prosperous life"
    Where does Achieve: Find out Who You Are, What You Really Want, and How to Make It Happen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was really well written and the narration was excellent. I loved how the techniques were so relevant to my well being and life. It provided real, guided information on how to achieve goals.


    What about Chris Abell’s performance did you like?

    It was strong, and persuasive. I loved it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Motivating and Easy to read.

    "More in Upcoming Books in the Series"

    TARGET AUDIENCE: Self-improvement book based upon sound clinical research, combined with real world experience. This is not a “motivational” book by a someone who has made it big and is just cheering you on, but based on proven techniques. If you like Steven Covey, Dave Ramsey, or Viktor Frankl you will love this book.

    CONTENT: Contains excellent information about how to achieve your goals, including personality inventories, links to self-assessments, and worksheets. The only drawback is the author’s frequent reminder that he will further address items in “upcoming books in the series.”

    NARRATOR: Excellent. The book was well read, and added to the book.

    OVERALL: Absolutely recommend this book.

    "Interesting once he got to the point"

    This was very interesting and it had some really good information. Pretty much the first half of the book is talking about personality types and how to score yourself into what category. It would've been really nice if he had explained why this was important BEFORE launching in depth into the personality types. Even though it was relatively interesting I got bogged down and kept wandering off. Once he explained why the personality types we're so important and I understood why, it was much more interesting. And I'm going to have to go back and listen again now. I'll probably follow up with the next books. Definitely worth the read.

    The narrator was very good and pleasant to listen to.

    "Very Informative"
    What made the experience of listening to Achieve: Find out Who You Are, What You Really Want, and How to Make It Happen the most enjoyable?

    The author gives some new ideas and perspectives. There are several personality factors that really determine how you should attack certain situations. Chris does a good job of making sure you are lined up to think about a situation correctly.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Achieve: Find out Who You Are, What You Really Want, and How to Make It Happen?

    By far the section on Goals. The author does and excellent job of walking you through how to set AND achieve your goals.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The section about figuring out what you really want was impactful.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Achieve: Find out Who You Are, What You Really Want, and How to Make It Happen?

    This book really made me re-evaluate how I approach my goals.


    Any additional comments?

    I went our and bought a paper copy so I could take some notes. I liked listening to this on audio, because the narrator does a really good job.

    The only problem is there are several points when I wanted a paper copy to highlight and go back to. Overall this is a great book and I highly recommend it.

    "New and helpful twist on self improvement"
    Where does Achieve: Find out Who You Are, What You Really Want, and How to Make It Happen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This audiobook is more relevant and applied than most of the other self improvement audiobooks I've listened to. The integration of personality traits with self-help strategies is excellent and leads to better and most lasting outcomes.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the narrator and the personal touches and humour.

    "Another textbook.."
    What disappointed you about Achieve: Find out Who You Are, What You Really Want, and How to Make It Happen?

    It isn't helpful at all; Nice title, but, its all about 'finding passion and working hard'. Wish it covered how to get there first..The style is not engaging, reads almost like a manual.


    What could Chris Friesen have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make it reader friendly. Include more real stories and not only about athletes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Reading is too fast and monotonous.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It is informative
