This is the legend of Hafid, a camel boy 2,000 years ago, and his burning desire to improve his lowly position in life, as told to his apprentice Erasmus. Hafid relates the story of how he became known as the Greatest Salesman in the World. His success lies in the wisdom of ten leather scrolls passed down to him from his master, Pathros.

For years, Robert Kiyosaki has firmly believed that the best investment one can ever make is in taking the time to truly understand how one's finances work. Too many people are much more interested in the quick-hitting scheme, or trying to find a short-cut to real wealth. Now, in this latest book in the popular Rich Dad, Poor Dad series, Kiyosaki lays out his five key principles of financial intelligence for all to understand.

I have a ways to go before I will get the gist of all the information in this book but it still has a bundle of good if not great information but until I understand finances as well as I will in the future. This book is a bit over my head at this time, still it will be a good listen for those who practice his concepts.

If you listened to the first audiobook they wrote together this one expands on it. It is an easy listen and really pulls out the punches. But if your going to start or have your own business and need some advise or encouragement as well as discouragement this audiobook does it all. Two of the top business (teachers) people in the United States have given some great insight about the business world from their perspectives and it really is worth the listen.

My bet is that you need to be in a meditative State to absorb the message in this book. It has good information in it but it's A to Z and numerical approach can turn you off. I like to listen to a book this short over and over because some times the smaller the book the more absorb-able and better the message. I like Deepak Chora's books that I have purchased in the past but this one will take some time to understand. Maybe I'm not open to its message yet.

This audio book is a really nice read. it expands exponentially on Napoleon Hill's, "Three Feet From Gold". It has a cool story on how the author's over came their obstacles and turned them into many great opportunities. It has a lot of real world experiences with real successful people you can look up and verify. It was educational and a fun read.

In this irreverent and illuminating audiobook, acclaimed writer and scientist Leonard Mlodinow shows us how randomness, chance, and probability reveal a tremendous amount about our daily lives, and how we misunderstand the significance of everything from a casual conversation to a major financial setback. As a result, successes and failures in life are often attributed to clear and obvious causes, when in actuality they are more profoundly influenced by chance.

It can be a hard listen but it still has a good message if you can decipher it. Hint its in the main explanation of what the books about. You really need an analytic mind or be in the mood to follow the scientific explanations he gives.
