From the foreword by G.M. Philpott:
"Those of us who have been associated with Mr. Danforth in business know that this Dare idea works. Practically all of the leaders in his great organization were boys who came from humble surroundings and were dared by him to high accomplishments. He has dared most by his own daring example. Mr. Danforth gives the best that is in him, whether he is guiding a great industry, traveling in a remote corner of the world, shooting ducks or playing with his grandchildren. The day ahead is always the most thrilling day in his life. The job at hand is always the most important one he has ever undertaken. He never gives less than his best."

One of the very best personal growth books I've ever listened to, and I've read many.
Rich with ideas and inspiration, this book could inspire a 13 year old or this 55 year old business guy.
Jason McCoy the narrator had the perfect pace and energy to match the content. I will buy a hard copy now so that I can highlight the best ideas. It's that good.
If you do not want to be inspired to be a better and more efficient you, don't read this book. If you do not want to improve yourself in at minimum ten different ways, don't read this book. If you do not think your actions can inspire others as you consciously and subconsciously decide to better yourself and dare to do what you feared to do knowing the challenge you accepted will improve your life, don't read this book.
If you think that I was not reinvigorated in hard-charging through my 9-5, and run a small business contributing equal energy to Faith, Family, Job and my Passion, don't read this book. This book, worth many times more than its price will improve your worth. But don't take my word for it... I only listened to it beginning-to-end eight hours a day for weeks.
Might have been innovative when it was written in the 1930s, but didn't do much for me. It advises to stay healthy, do your best, and have a mission to serve others. Incredibly dull and outdated book.
"Speaker needs to slow down"
The speaker reads without any pause through the entire book. That makes very difficult to catch the ideas and digest them. Literally there is no pauses between sentences, thoughts or chapters. I am fan of audio books and it's a shame that such great material is undermined by the way it is read out loud.
