Abraham does it again

Just when I thought Abraham couldn't say anything new, they did. This book had some really interesting ways of looking at relationships with family, friends and even those people you can't stand. In particular it was helpful for me in re-thinking what I expect from my kids. And as always, just listening to this book made me feel good...and nothing is as important as feeling good!

Best-selling author of The Millionaire Next Door and The Millionaire Mind and leading authority on the wealthy, Dr. Thomas Stanley uncovers the truth that few people become rich by way of a high income, and even fewer high-income people are truly rich. The good news is that almost anyone can become wealthy - even without a super high income. Just stop acting...and instead start living like a rich person.

The Millionaire Next Door's Outtakes

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-20-10

I really enjoyed The Millionaire Next Door...but I was looking for some ideas on how to apply those principles in my (not always so frugal) life and habits. I thought this book was geared toward that end but instead, it consisted of entire chapters outlining what brands of shoe and types of vodka the rich and pseudo-rich purchase. Who cares? If you get that many millionaires don't drive, dress or drink like our culture thinks they do, then you don't need this book.

Tribes are groups of people aligned around an idea, connected to a leader and to each other. Tribes make our world work, and always have. The new opportunity is that it's easier than ever to find, organize, and lead a tribe. The Web has enabled an explosion of all kinds of tribes - and created shortage of people to lead them. This is the growth industry of our time. Tribes will help you understand exactly what's at stake, and why YOU can and should lead a tribe of your own.

If the world is formed of tribes, and if all tribes need a leader, then surely Seth Godin is the leader of leaders. This book is so fun, informative and easily digestible that when I got to the end, I immediately hit Play and started it again. Thanks to the ideas and concepts in this book, I've brushed off my blogs and my Facebook account, and I'm working harder than ever to bring my ideas into the world by gathering together those of like minds. Read this book and join the tribe!

Live the life you've always wanted to live! 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself is packed with techniques for breaking down negative barriers and pessimistic thoughts that prevent you from fulfilling your goals and dreams. It's easy to get stuck in a humdrum life and only fantasize about what "could have been". Motivational speaker Steve Chandler helps you change that way of thinking to what "will be". His ideas will help you create an action plan for living out your vision.

  • I find the "boring" narrative very refreshing.

Some Things Shouldn't Be Abridged

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 05-30-09

I love Steve Chandler. I am a major fan. But this audiobook unsuccessfully tries to cram what should be 7 or 8 hours of ideas into an hour and a half. Worse, for the first half hour or so, dear Steve sounds like he's so bored he's about to slip into a coma. And even worse yet, each of the 100 items is started off by a female voice that is positively dripping with false cheer. I kept on listening despite these drawbacks, because there really are some cool ideas in there. If I could buy the unabridged version, I would.

I wanted to like this book. I really did. But from the get-go it comes off as a sugary chunk of fluff that fails to add any new ideas to the flooded field of self-development and new thought. Worse, she is heavily focused on fighting back against "negative energy" and "psychic vampires". That just doesn't do a thing for me. A disappointment.
