This book was good. It's translated into old English which would normally bother me, but it seemed fitting for this text. For me it reinforced concepts of saving and gave compound interest a new example.

The total money makeover is a good starting point for people confused about finances. This book has a bit of a spiritual tendency but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Psychology shows that giving is an important aspect to a healthy life. Dave approach is it from more of a spiritual standpoint but I consider it true nonetheless.

  • Think and Grow Rich (1937 Edition)

The original 1937 manuscript was written and edited with the assistance of Napoleon’s wife. In later years, the existing document was again edited by Dr. Hill. For example, the Foundation owns a 1958 edition that Hill edited personally. This did not lessen the book’s value in Hill’s judgment. Hill made the editing remarks in his own handwriting and the resulting 1960 edited edition has sold over 100 million copies making it the most read self-help book of all time.

I think this is where The Secret comes from originally. Its interesting to see how wealthy people think about money. This book does not give you practical guides to wealth. It teaches you how to attract money.

This new audio set is a very special abridgement of two of Stephen R. Covey's best-selling business books, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit, read by Dr. Covey himself. We've condensed the content of two entire books into just three hours of audio, but you'll still enjoy Dr. Covey's lessons on powerful personal change and how to incorporate his ideas into your life to fulfill your ultimate potential.

You've listened to all the audiobooks teaching you how to make money in your underwear at home in the iPhone or Android apps business. But you know what those audiobooks are missing? The truth. Reality. That's what I'm giving you in this short audiobook. The reality is you're more likely to be like me. A mobile app business failure. But it doesn't have to be that way. If you follow the simple lessons I learned the hard way you'll be far more likely to be a success than a failure.

You should at least be willing to invest this amount of time if you're going into app development. It's a reality check you should be willing to endure.

Living from the Overflow is the latest offering from this inspiring teacher, with more than six hours of insights and practices for tapping into the "super-abundance" of Spirit. Listeners will learn how to apply Beckwith's principles of plentiful living to their health, relationships, financal needs, and spirtual growth. Here is a complete workshop to help us stop seeing ourselves as beings who acquire things - and realize our true nature as vessels through which Spirit constantly flows.

Where does Living from the Overflow rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is in my top 20

Any additional comments?

Dr. Beckwith gives great advice that is based in Buddhism and the Law of Attraction. I usually don't like the Law of Attraction materials but Beckwith is very clear and down to earth.
