What did you like best about The Success Principles(TM) - 10th Anniversary Edition? What did you like least?

I owned the audio book of the Success Principles for many years and loved that Jack Canfield was reading the book. I was so very excited to see a 10th anniversary edition and pre-ordered it. When the download finished I was sorely disappointed that it was not Jack Canfield who was reading the book, but rather another narrator. The narrator was technically ok, but gone was the enthusiasm and the vocal inflection that was unique to the author that made the original Success Principles recording what it was. It just felt so much less passionate and fell quite flat to my listening ear. In the book, Jack talks about giving feedback; well here is mine: Jack, please never do that again. Never allow someone else to read your work when it is your voice and your direct narration that sells you and your work best.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jack Canfield

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrator is not the author and sounds unenthusiastic and lacks authenticity.

Was The Success Principles(TM) - 10th Anniversary Edition worth the listening time?

Yes. However, I am very disappointed that the narrator was not Jack Canfield and hearing someone else read The Success Principles was a shock.

Any additional comments?

Jack Canfield needs to read his own audio books and not entrust this to any other narrator.
