    "Change your thinking!!!!!!!!"
    Would you listen to Excuses Begone! again? Why?

    This is one of those books you have to listen to over and over again. There is so much powerful information that Dr. Wayne Dyer teaches you it's almost impossible to catch everything first time around.


    Any additional comments?

    I love all of Dr. Wayne Dyers audiobooks and speeches.

    "Critics Begone!"

    Dr. Dyer does it again with an excellent narrative on how to eliminate excuses from one's life. The book starts a little slowly but begins to pick up by part two. By the third section, Dyer has really found his groove in explaining his Excuses Begone! paradigm.

    Dr.Dyer is an excellent orator but his performance is affected by a somewhat poorer sound quality than that found on his other recordings. If the listener can get past this aspect, the experience will be enriching and should add value to his/her life. Cheers. KJ

    "Right to the heart...and soul!"

    This is one of the most profound yet simple messages that each and everyone of us struggle with. From infants we learn to create excuses versus choosing from a powerful place...simple yet profound, right?.
    Dr. Dyer reiterated the power of our free will to choose our thoughts and how these thoughts affect our lives. Since WE have the free will to choose our thoughts (good/bad/indifferent/healthy/loving/positive/negative/fearful/etc) we have the amazing power to change whatever isn't working in our lives simply by changing our thoughts!
    Dr. Dyers's message is that "Our thoughts dictate our success and happiness in this world". Again, sounds so simple, yet we've convoluted the concept. Dr. Dyer is brilliantly articulate, easy to listen to, and inspirational in his approach. Hands down and MUST READ OR LISTEN TO...you choose, but DON'T MISS IT!!

    "Motivation for those of us in 1st world countries"

    Lots of great advice on motivation and mindset. I thought many of his 'principles' were very useful and well thought out. Some of his advice will only work for a certain 'class' of people - he seems to make the assumption that everyone who is able to listen to this audiobook has the same ability to create opportunities. I'm not sure that is true, but I fall into his demographic, so it was motivational for me.

    "A well spoken audio book"

    I loved this book. This book answered a lot of questions. Was entertaining, energizing and enlightening.
    I will listen to it again because there is so much to take in. I listened to Making The Shift straight after this one and found that the combination of the 2 books, has joined all the dots for me. These audio books have changed my life.

    "Too "New Agey" for me"

    As a fan of personal development materials I was looking forward to hearing Wayne for the first time. I listened to about half of the audiobook before giving up on it. There are a lot of good ideas in his work; however, too much of it felt like endless rambling and "new age" science for me. I really think he could have conveyed the same information in half the time and still done so in a motivating fashion.

    That said, I know the book will be a great aid for many. It simply didn't speak to me.

    "If you find yourself using excuses all the time..."

    ...this is the book for you. Dr Dyer gives a comprehensive explaination of the nature of excuses, how to stop using them, and get on with your life.

    The level of detail he goes into is impressive, but can actually be too much if you are time constrained. I must admit I struggled to stay tuned in for the whole duration and know I need to listen to it again. I do only listen to half an hour a day though.

    Personally, I was struck by how few excuses I use, but the ones I do use are MASSIVE in their impact on my life and I need to apply Dr Dyers methods to them.

    I think I would have found the book more useful if I was a constant excuse maker. All in all a good book.

    Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.

    "Helpful but not life changing."

    Not a bad book, but a little too Buda for me liking. Yes I agree with his ideas, however it all comes down to a question of faith. Never the less, his ideas on not accepting excuses and taking responsibility are helpful. Worth a listen if you have the open mind and time.
