So many great nuggets

I really like the whole book. It is short and concise and I wanted it to keep going, but I got a lot out of it and will definitely be one of those books that I reread every year

Did not live up to expectations

This book came recommended by a friend. It seemed like a collection of inspirational quotes. I struggled to connect with the author's storyline. Maybe I just could not get past the flatness of the announcer's voice. I now make it a habit to listen to the Audible samples before buying. The voice delivering the message makes all the difference.

Not what I thought - Waste of money

Very disappointed I spent money on this. It is nothing but a string of inspiration quotes that were put together in the form of a book. If your looking for a lot of inspirational quotes, this is for you. If you are lookin for something with substance, keep looking. Don’t waste your money, it’s a little over an hour of nothing but inspirational quotes.

Not Exactly Like the Book

I liked the book, and wanted to listen to it. That was very disappointing, as all Biblical references were removed ... so it was just part of the book. The end result was that it sounded choppy and literally like someone reading a list of clichés. Therefore, only 2 stars.

C++

While many excellent points regarding success and behavior were brought up, at times it seemed to be regurgitated phrases from other public figures. The phrases are useful and good to keep along your journey and/or while coaching others along their paths. At times it felt like that was the majority of the chapter.
