    "Must Read!"

    Great book, for people of all ages. Perfectly tows the line between motivational and practical without being too verbose. Just what you would want out of great self-improvement literature. My only wish is that someone would have put this in my hand earlier in my life.

    I enjoyed the ideas and pearls of wisdom. There were many ideas that I think apply to all people.

    "Fantastic!"

    I can't wait to listen to this again and again. This is a short audio but has many motivational pieces throughout. It is just what I needed as I guide my oldest though self-directed homeschool in the high school years. Also inspired me to keep up in my passions.

    "Great content - proper lenght."

    It nails it just right. Gives a ton of useful and specific advice on how to succeed in turning ourselves into self-directed learners.
    It achieves this thru some really concise statements and proper-lenght examples

    "A few gems but not worth the money"

    There is a lot of extra fluff in this book to find the substantial information. It is not really for an adult self directed learner
