The performance is read in a conversational tone, which might be alright for some but I did not care to be in a conversation with this book. The situations did not speak to me and it was very clear that I was not the author's target audience. I did not complete the book when it was obvious that this was a waste of my time. The author had nothing to offer me in the first half of the book. I guess I wanted confirmation for my current financial path and I'm not in some dire straight struggling. So she had nothing for me.
I have listened to few audio books, but one thing that made this one more attractive was that it felt like a discussion with the author, not a rigid reading of the text.
The author's sincerity and grounded presence.
She interprets the text so naturally and with a light-hearted wit that I didn't experience when I just read the text.
I have already started to experience my relationship with money changin for the better.
I highly recommend this audio book. Be aware, however, that though it's not considered an abridged edition, it is more like a lecture covering the main points of the book then it is like a reading of the book. I liked this about the recording, and even preferred it this way, but if you want the text word for word, I don't think that's what this is.
This book was amazing l! It really gave me the opportunity to look at my relationship with money. Then it provided step by step task to change my financial habits. Must read/listen
overall ok. nothing groundbreaking here. narrator is a little bland, but not overly so. also, this is a short book, easy to finish in one sitting.
Be patient. She uses a lot of words to get to the point. I felt this could have been half the length. The focus & principles of the program are excellent. This is not about getting rich though. It's how to live a not enslaved to making a buck.
It was soothing and comfortable to listen to, however as a 25 year old working man it feels that i need a little more structure and practicality than was provided in this 2 hour audio sesdion. The second half contains really valuable information and i wish the whole session was like the second half. I look forward to trying this 9 step program. I happy the publisher did not just try to ger me interested in the 9 steps just to in the end sell me another 3 steps or other products. Very informative non-theless. :)
Excellent resource and the main thing is for me to actually do the steps and not get distracted with other things.
