Audible Editor Reviews

In Speed Is Power, champion speed climber Hans Florine imparts wisdom gained from his sport that is useful in other contexts. Speed climbing requires will, dexterity, and the confidence to act quickly without becoming stalled by doubt and endless possibilities. Florine has successfully employed these same traits in the rest of his life, and his advice to the audience is to do likewise. In this concise personal help guide speed is at first literal: Do the things you don’t want to do quickly instead of letting procrastination oppress you. Speed here is also metaphorical: Allow yourself to act with surety even if you don’t have every answer. Florine himself is the narrator, and his friendly, encouraging tone convinces the listener to follow his advice.

    "Great point of view and extremely useful"

    "Power of speed" subject was mentioned before at "The Magic of Thinking Big"-another holy book- but it was needing more examples and first hand experiences like Hans Florine has lots of. He is my new mentor from now on, all the time I was curious about speed climbing to develop this key skill as I am a climbing fan. Apply it on to everyday tasks and your life style. You will win!
