This was a very inspiring book for me. I learned that one shouldn't focus too much on the money. Do what you love, create value for others and your rewards will come.

Getting rich is not a matter of environment, for if it were all the people in certain neighbourhoods would become wealthy; the people of one city would all be rich, while those of other towns would all be poor. Everywhere we see rich and poor living side-by-side, in the same environment, and often engaged in the same vocations. Getting rich is not the result of saving or thrift; many very penurious people are desperately poor whilst free spenders appear to get rich.

Any additional comments?

No originality. Just a mashup and trim of other famous books in the category. Can be used to remember stuff from other books.

Does it feel as if you re fighting your body to lose even one pound or just to maintain your current weight? Respected health and wellness expert and best-selling author Jillian Michaels has been there, too. So she consulted top experts in the field of metabolism and discovered that she d inadvertently been abusing her endocrine system for years. After fixing her own metabolism, she decided to share what she learned by devising this simple, 3-phase plan.

What she says is true. The corporate world has taken over the food industry and gives us crap so that they can profit from it. She says a million reasons why you should stop taking processed foods. Natural and organic food is the only way you can pocket the money yourself instead of giving it to food and medical industries.

I am from India and found it extremely useful though the topics are focused to the US audience. Also the author thinks that only fat people are gonna hear this book. I am perfectly healthy and I read this one and now I know how to be healthier.

Awesome information. If you already practice Yoga and believe in the energy part of your body it is going to be much easier for you to grasp what the author says. Finally, it just works... and is worth a try.

It changed my life. Hope you too change yours.

I hear to a lot of audio books. This one is the worst ever. The author talks too much and says too less. Ironic. Don't waste your credit on this.

There used to be two teams in every workplace: management and labor. Now there’s a third team, the linchpins. These people invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They figure out what to do when there’s no rule book. They delight and challenge their customers and peers. They love their work, pour their best selves into it, and turn each day into a kind of art.
