The story is okay...left me feeling she has so much more to offer. The message could be written more powerfully. Less anger and more hope.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kyle Hebert?

I am not sure, however I felt like I was listening to a game show host or used car salesman. I find his tonality to be distracting and sadly it takes away from the content.

Any additional comments?

Great information, I have been a coaching client of Mike Ferry for well over a decade, the information is all very similar, great to hear another source. This is likely a much better read than audiobook as I did not enjoy the narrator.

What did you love best about The Champion's Mind?

The Olympian Stories

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I connected with the part about Michael Phelps and taking all the energy and using it to propel himself forward and advance his goals and dreams.

Any additional comments?

Read, Re-Read, and Read again...excellent book and information.

During his wanderings and work over the last 30 years as a Buddhist monk, Ajahn Brahm has gathered many poignant, funny and profound stories. While traditional Buddhist philosophy is at the heart of this collection, these thoughtful stories are written like playful parables, which are used to launch into a deeper exploration of subjects such as mindfulness, suffering, forgiveness, hope, wisdom, and unconditional love.

Insightful, thought provoking, and eye opening to the far reach one company can have in today's world. This is 10 years old now...would be nice to see an update, which is why I only gave this a 3 start rating.

I'm not a coffee drinker and I never understood what Starbucks was all about. Wonderful read and the story, the passion shines through. I now "get it" about Starbucks and why it's so special.

Extreme success, by definition, lies beyond the realm of normal action. If you want to achieve extreme success, you can’t operate like everybody else and settle for mediocrity. You need to remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success. The 10X Rule shows you how!

I've studied sales for more than 11 years. This book is concise and brings a lot of great sales mindset information together in one place.
