A Classic Well Done

This is a very good version of a classic story. There are other versions of this in Audible. But, be careful. Some of the narration on those versions is terrible! The narrator here - Kevin T. Norris - is quite good. He delivers it the speech clearly and keeps in the style of the time period of when it was originally given. And the message of the story is fantastic!

Stimulating story telling letting.

For those that enjoy a great set of stories letting us all know what we are missing...this is it. The author ties together real life situations into a thread showing how much opertunity we are missing...right in our own back yard. A great inspirational text.

This is deliciously Nutricious mind food !! <3

Practices are many Principles are few. Practices come and go. Principles are always true! ;-) Enjoy a piece of our past preserved in a wonderfully brief return to principles. A journey guided through a lecture and a collection of small stories. Collected and given by a man who truly lived his life generations past. His simply direct insight stored wonderfully in this small short book. For the enjoyment of you and generations to come. I highly recommend this mental voyage.

A Must Read/Listen for Every U.S. Citizen

This is the first book I’ve learned something from. And if you really listen to what is being said with a desire to learn from what Dr. Conwell says. You will find yourself richer for having read/listened to his sermon than when you began to read/listen.

should be on some sort of must read books list

not every book will stand the test of time this one certainly will and will continue to. You could likely Trace many current new books to the lessons in this book from 1890

Good story. Terrible narrator

Unlistenable. No flow or rhythm. Wasted money. Can I get a refund on this one?

A good wake up call

This book is about how we let society tell us what success is and always look for it externally. When success can be fond right at home inside ourselves. A good book for those open minded people that are willing to practice a new way seeing life and being themselves.

The reading is very poor.

the story is great, however, the reading is very poor. I am used to the quality that I've heard with so many of the Audible books. This is not one
