    "Updated Classic from 1904"

    I enjoyed this book. I have listened to it more than once because I find it uplifting. It was originally written in 1904. I understand that in the current edition the author updates the language. The narrator is not related to the author.The narrator does a fine job. He obviouslly loves the material, and reads it with feeling and interpretation. It is described as a "classic," and I agree. It is well-written and succinctly conveys a philosophy of life in which we 'make our own reality" through the kinds of thoughts we cultivate. There is resonance with Buddhism, although it is not kown whether the original author was familiar with Buddhism. There is also a thread of what I would describe as "Protestant ethic", i.e., that our circumstances in life reflect our moral fiber; if we blame the world for our problems and act accordingly, this will bring negative consequences in the long run. This was not heavy-handed, however. it certainly reflects in tone the time and culture (England) in which it was written.
    There are many modern authors who espouse similar commitment to the belief that we significantly influence our reality by how we choose to think. I found this book very interesting as an historical version of these thoughts. For me, the "jury is out" on to what extent our thoughts control our reality. I am open to it. This is a very charming, encouraging work that is enjoyable to listen to.

    "Narrator should find a better engineer/producer"

    Great info but a painful narrator. Forced importance. Should not have been read so quietly. Again, too forced. Also too much dry mouth and inhaling. Very,very distracting and annoying. When I listen I need to be in my car with all of the windows open and the AC on. I do this in order to drown out this narrator's dry moth and breathing. If I didn't I'd throw my iPhone through the window. I blame the engineer and producer for this mishap. It's a big one.

    I actually went and bought the Kindle version so I can re-visit the material without listening to this annoying, annoying narrator. I don't care how close he is to the product.

    The info is right on and I feel I never need to order another self-help book.
