Deep Work describes a method of engaging with one's professional efforts in a full and immersive manner to produce better results. This type of focused effort does not require longer hours. Instead, a seasoned practitioner can accomplish more in a shorter time frame. Furthermore, the product of this working style will be of a higher quality than what others produce when they attempt to work while succumbing to the noise of distractions around them, particularly those related to technological overload.

Do you have low energy and high stress? If so, you might have imbalanced and depleted chakras. The chakra system is the energy system of your body, with each chakra residing in a specific part of the body. If one or more of these chakras are out of sync, you could experience low energy, negative emotions, lack of enthusiasm, unhealthy habits, and even addiction. This meditation is designed to help you replenish each chakra through relaxation techniques.

Maybe has 200 words in the first 5 minutes then soft sound for the next hour.

And the info was at best aol news worthy. I'm serious, an average 5 yr old could have created the content and then his dad could speed $100 on a pro voice over and published this audio book.

This dude must be laughing all the way to the bank. Good for you! I'm getting my $3 back.

In 1938, just after publication of his all-time best-seller Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill revealed that he had broken the Devil’s Code, forcing him to confess his secrets. The resulting manuscript - Outwitting the Devil - proved so controversial, it was hidden for more than 70 years. Now, Sharon Lechter brings us this important book, annotating and editing it for a contemporary audience. Using his legendary ability to get to the root of human potential, Hill digs deep to identify the greatest obstacles we face in reaching our personal goals....

What disappointed you about Goals?

Bad voice, bad jokes, weak content

Has Goals turned you off from other books in this genre?

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

no it really had no redeeming qualities ...

Any additional comments?

dont waste you money with this book .... 3/4 of it is fluff ... and the 1/4 that has content is badly illustrated and not very wise.

Everything you thought you knew about marketing is obsolete. We can see the incontrovertible evidence right in front of us. A new generation of multibillion dollar brands - Facebook, Twitter, AirBnb, Evernote, and countless others - have been built without spending a dime on traditional marketing techniques. No press releases, no PR firm, no Madison Avenue, no billboards in Times Square. It wasn’t luck that took them from tiny start-ups to massive success. They have a new strategy.

What did you love best about Growth Hacker Marketing?

what i liked best is the wide variety of examples, which stimulated a 1,000s new ideas that have been waiting in my mind to come out

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes, i would think it is best to listen to this book in one sitting with a note book and a figure on the pause button to write down your new ideas.

Any additional comments?

this book has further solidified my general idea that in the future the best business leaders will have a SOLID marketing background, with that the product / service will be designed with the market, message and reach in mind.
