Have you ever wondered why some people seem to get rich easily while others are destined for lives of financial struggle? Is the difference found in their education, intelligence, skills, timing, work habits, contacts, luck, or choice of jobs, businesses, or investments? The shocking answer is: none of the above! In his groundbreaking Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker states, "Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!"

How the world's leading innovators push their ideas to fruition, time and time again. Edison famously said that genius is 1 percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration. Ideas for new businesses, solutions to the world's problems, and artistic breakthroughs are common, but great execution is rare. According to Scott Belsky, the capacity to make ideas happen can be strengthened by anyone willing to build their organizational habits and harness the forces of community.

The ultimate blueprint for all creative people

Overall

Reviewed: 08-05-11

This book is a must read for anyone that has good ideas and struggles to take action to make them happen. The book is very well researched I cannot emphasize this enough. It gives you plenty of insight into the lives of creative leaders who can follow through and how they motivate themselves to make their ideas a reality.

You are guaranteed to understand in plain terms why so far you have been unable to execute your ideas and what to do about it in more ways than one. The author gives you the ultimate blueprint you need to focus, stay motivated and realize your ideas. I have to agree that the narration is a bit monotonous but don't let that hinder you from getting this book, the content is brilliant!

When it comes to the holidays, no story brings us back to the true spirit of giving like O. Henry’s classic "The Gift of the Magi". So this year we’ve asked some of your favorite Audible narrators—Audie Award winners Katherine Kellgren, Oliver Wyman, and Jonathan Davis—to bring to life this timeless tale, plus two more of O. Henry’s gems: "The Cop and the Anthem" and "The Last Leaf", in this holiday collection.

The Go-Giver tells the story of an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success. Joe is a true go-getter, though sometimes he feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be. And so one day, desperate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, he seeks advice from the enigmatic Pindar, a legendary consultant referred to by his many devotees simply as the Chairman.

Nothing about driving growth or passion here!

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-20-10

This is the most disappointing book I have come across audible so far. The book is supposed to be about passion and driving growth in today's internet driven world, instead the author gives you advice on things that really should be norms in business today. If you are a shady type of person that lacks business ethics and values money over your customers then this is for you. As for passion, if the author would start with a more passionate voice maybe I would have at least finished the book, but the dry monotone reminded me of my grade 8 physics master who used to lull the whole class to sleep. I had to turn it off. There is nothing about driving growth or passion here, instead its a pitch about how good Schwab is and how ethical they are, which takes me back to the first point I made, if you lack ethics in the way you do business and want to change that then this book is for you.

In little more than half a decade, Facebook has gone from a dorm-room novelty to a company with 500 million users. It is one of the fastest growing companies in history, an essential part of the social life not only of teenagers but hundreds of millions of adults worldwide. As Facebook spreads around the globe, it creates surprising effects, even becoming instrumental in political protests from Colombia to Iran.

This is THE BEST audio book I have listened to so far. David Kirkpatrick does such a brilliant and awesome job in uncovering the facebook phenomenon and how it is changing our lives and the world we live in today, and he narrates the book so well that the 15 hours and 42 minutes go by so quickly you would wish it didn't end, which makes me sad.

I will definitely listen to this book again and again. If I could give it a 10 star rating I would.

The only thing left for me to say is THANK YOU & WELL DONE DAVID for such a rare gem.

The information in this book is top notch. The authors give you an insight into how brain science developed and how it works. Not only that as the title states it goes deep into how winners brains differ. The section on focus helped me a great deal. Understanding that one piece of information on how best the brain can be focused has done wonders.

I have to agree with what other reviewers said the book could have been better read by someone else, however the information deserves a six star rating.

People starting out in business tend to seek step-by-step formulas or specific rules, but in reality there are no magic bullets. Rather, says veteran entrepreneur Norm Brodsky, there's a mentality that helps street-smart people solve problems and pursue opportunities as they arise. He calls it "the knack" and it has made all the difference to the eight successful start-ups of his career.
