You live in your dream house, but there's no mortgage. No alarm clock, no boss, no bills. No claims on the day's time other than what you choose. It is making more money before breakfast than you made for an entire week at your last job. It is a crazy expensive car parked in your garage, a victorious symbol that your dreams no longer sleep in fantasies, but are awake with reality.

  • Making money, yeah. Cut the rant though.

This book was recommended by a friend and I trust her reading and listening judgement, so I was excited to tune in.

Unfortunately, it’s very hard to hear the message with expletives every other word. I really tried, but some of the language felt unnecessary and obnoxious.

In my opinion, it lacked a level of authenticity I believe the author was going for with profanity, and just felt off-putting. I’m disappointed with this download.

In this new expanded edition of her classic international best seller, Marilee Adams shows how the kinds of questions we ask shape our thinking and can be the root cause of many personal and organizational problems. She uses a highly instructive and entertaining story to show how to quickly recognize any undermining questions that pop into your mind - or out of your mouth - and reframe them to achieve amazingly positive and practical results.

Would you try another book from Marilee G. Adams, PhD and/or Anna Crowe?

Yes

What aspect of Anna Crowe’s performance would you have changed?

I'd prefer to read it vs. hearing it because the book is being read from the perspective of a male character, hearing a woman's voice throws me off. I think there should have been two characters for this reading.

Any additional comments?

Again, I'd probably read the book vs listening.
