The analogy of our own lives to sailing or boating is very true and very easy to understand. While sailing, when the wind changes, sailors adjust their sails to keep moving towards the goal. Very well known statement, but is is also true that sailors get hit by surprise with underwater objects, or sudden storms, and there are ways to handle those and ways to fail. The author makes a wonderful analogy with the teachings of JesusChrist and the “vessel” our Savior provides us to enjoy life at the fullest and to survive through tribulations. I enjoyed this audiobook very much and thank the author for sharing his thoughts, advise and teachings through this book. No need to be a sailor or boater to fully understand the teaching within.

Interesting but plausible futuristic prediction.

I must admit that for anyone that has read Mr. Brown's previous books, this one seems predictable in some ways.

However, looking through the smoke of suspense and putting aside predictability, I felt that this book accurately presented the possibility of artificial intelligence reaching a maturity level of controlling human lives in the near future.

In fact, I believe that the supercomputers existing today do have most of the capabilities described on this book.

We must reflect, however, on what if these computing capabilities are used against out own humanity if controlled by power hungry lunatics, with aggressive nationalism and intolerant ideas (as presented on this book when referring to Dictator Francisco Franco in Spain) and, I must add, like some of the leaders that we have today.

Quoting from the book, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" by Jorge Santayana.

IOur people must wake up and review the history of dictators Franco and Hitler and take proactive and responsible action to avoid the horrific crimes, suffering and oppression brought by them to millions of people.

The book presents the idea that we must teach our future generation love, tolerance and compassion, and teach them history, so they will be empowered to avoid the mistakes of the past.

I enjoyed the book as very entertaining, but the message and the technological possibilities presented are totally plausible. I highly recommend it.

An inspiring set of stories.

This is an eye opener for most of us that still have unfinished business with people that have touched our lives.

I enjoyed every story and can relate to some of them. I also appreciate James' inspired guidance addressing personal issues such as regret, forgiveness, self esteem and others. I recommend this book as a gift to friends or relatives that are holding a grudge against loved ones and others.
Thank you James for writing this book for us that may not be able to attend your sessions.

Great message for overall success

I downloaded this book after another author referenced on his book. The bottom line is that Mr. Napoleon Hill describes a method for success that has been proven over and over by thousands of people and copied in many forms by many other authors, even in today's bests sellers for personal development.

If you are interested in this topic, I suggest you download a lecture by Mr. Napoleon Hill in his own voice, also available at Audible.com. It is the best and I am sure you will get the message delivered efficiently and enjoyable. Mr. Hill's method for success is without doubt a proven approach for anyone that truly desires to succeed in life, whether is business or personal.

My only regret is that Audible.com advertises this book as narrated by Mr. Napoleon Hill and that is not the case. The actual narrator has the most boring voice that I have heard with a British accent and it takes away pretty much most of the interest from the reader (listener). So if you do not care about the narrator's voice, then I recommend to download this version, otherwise, look for another narrator or Mr. Hill's truly own voice on his real life lecture recording, also available here in Audible.com.

This book provides a true awakening of your inner purpose and helps you realize that every experience, good or bad, has a learning purpose. It does not matter which religious background the reader has, the case stories and the message presented is very inspiring. A must read.
