Packed with examples of people who pursued their goals relentlessly, the book profiles nearly 50 individuals who prevailed against all odds. From the builder of the Brooklyn Bridge to the chemists who invented Post-It notes we meet people like Bessie Coleman, an African-American who had to go to flight school in Paris in order to learn how to fly. But she did, becoming the first woman in America to earn her pilot's license in 1920.

When I first listened to this book via my public library, I did not know the author was homophobic. Thank heavens. For had I known, I would never have picked up her book, muchless purchase it later from audible. This is an extremely encouraging, motivating book without being uber-hyper and without any evidence of homophobia in it. It gives common sense tips about establishing priorities, sticking to principles and above all, trusting in God, and never ever giving up. I recommend this book to anyone. The narrator is great - I actually thought it was the author as I had never heard Joyce Meyer's voice before - speaking with confidence, assurance and compassion. Great book.
This audio book inspires me to never give up! I am listening to it again for the second time and I'm sure I will do so more in the future. Joyce gives so many inspiring stories about the lives of people who went through much difficulties but they never gave up. I would recommend this book to anyone who has thoughts of giving up on anything. I use it as I walk on my treadmill and I get so involved that I walk longer than I originally intended. That's a good thing!
It inspired me, gave me hope and made me believe that good things can happen in "MY" life if I trust God and Never Give Up. I believed it could happen for others but not for me. Now That's changed. I will listen to this again and again. Love Joyce Meyer's teachings, she really hits the nail on the head w me. The narrator was good, her voice was slow enough and soft enough voice to make it easy to focus while driving, cooking, cleaning, etc. I'm about to purchase my 4th Joyce Meyer audio book. Each one so far has changed my thinking in some way which has freed me from something negative. Yay God! : )
I like to listen to the Joyce Meyers books over and over. It seems I learn something each time I hear her words.
I love the inspirational subjects with personal and historic examples of the subject matter. It makes you understand that you are not alone in your struggles.
I feel like the narrator really steals the joy and message of this book. Its a bit of a drag to listen to. She's kinda old and drabby sounding and I'm used to the empowering voice of Joyce. I think I'll pass on the audio and perhaps pick up the book instead.
This is NOT a motivational collection of stories, but a scripture-laden HOW TO book for CHRISTIANS on 'how to be a good christian'... I tried listening in spite of the unexpected format, hoping to gleen a few inspired gems amidst the bible readings and very limited focused lectures and it became unbearable. I do not recommend at all!! (unless you are looking for a how to be a christian manual from a singular point of view)
