Merely a synopsis, not worth the listen.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

This book is basically a very brief synopsis of "As a Man Thinketh" and "Think and Grow Rich". There is nothing new here, and the information is skimmed from other basic Law of Attraction explanations with the disadvantage of not having the vast amount of detail that helps one truly understand the information.
Disappointing overall.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, but glad that it was as short as it was since it didn't really have anything to offer, it was merely a paraphrase of other books.

Any additional comments?

Near the end of the recording the author states that he made this audio version to be shared for free, and that the print version could be bought for a few dollars. I regret spending any money for it because it had nothing new in it, as well as the author had the price right (nothing!) to begin with.

I'm probably gonna ask for a refund on this one, even thought I only spent a few bucks.

  • The Charisma Myth

What if charisma could be taught? For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: In controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial. What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you meet, a chance to experiment.

What did you love best about The Charisma Myth?

I found this to be a very insightful book. It was well thought out and written in a way that's easy to grasp. Some things are very basic, but not to be undermined, even the basics are explained thoroughly as well as the purpose. There were many things I've never thought of before, and overall I found this one really helpful.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

The end addresses problems associated with (your newly gained) charisma. Surprisingly these provided insight to problems I was already having with what little charisma I already unknowingly possessed. For what it's worth, this book was great.
