Publisher's Summary

A Bigger Vocabulary = A Brighter Future

Words. They're the foundation of nearly everything of value in our world. They have the power to create and the power to destroy. The power to inspire and to terrify. The power to enlighten and also to obscure. And, more specifically for you, they have the power to attract wealth and success and guarantee your brighter future. This is not hyperbole - it is based on rock-solid research.

Studies show that those people with large vocabularies are smarter, wealthier, and happier than the average person - and substantially so. And here's the best news of all: a large vocabulary is not tied to your social status, your genes, or even your education level. It is a skill that can be learned - and it takes only 30 days.

In this cutting-edge program, 30 Days to a More Powerful Vocabulary, personal development expert and English enthusiast Dan Strutzel will instruct, enlighten, and inspire you with a concentrated 30-day program that will teach you over 500 words. But, more than teaching you these words, the uniquely designed morning and evening review sessions will ensure that these words become a habit-knit part of your life - and with minimal effort on your part.

Best of all, research shows that learning new words has an exponential effect on the size of your vocabulary - since learning one word naturally produces an association between two to three more words. In short, after listening to and applying the system in this 30-day program, you will not only have a bigger vocabulary - you will have a brighter future!

Here's just a sampling of what you'll learn:

  • The 10 myths about building a dynamic vocabulary
  • The secret behind the exponential effect of vocabulary building
  • A 30-day program designed to maximize learning and comprehension of over 500 words
  • The words you need to know about money and financial issues
  • The words you need to know about persuading others
  • The words you need to know about marriage, parenting, and other relationships
  • The words you need to know about science
  • The words you need to know to be a great conversationalist
  • Why building a large, dynamic vocabulary is even more valuable in the digital age
  • And much more!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

I expected different benefits from the book

personally, I find the first part the most interesting, mainly the part describing benefits and advantageous of vast vocabulary and part comparing job positions with regard to a vocabulary width of people exercising the job. However, the rest of the book did not give me much new knowledge or language learning know-how with regard to the books price.

With focus on the price, I do not recommend the book to people who are not at vocabulary level C2 at minimum.

Great for college students!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was not only one of the more interesting vocabulary programs to listen to, but it contains words that are very relevant to today (many of the other vocal programs I listened to are not). As a college student, I feel much smarter going back to campus this Fall!<br/>

Not bad but not what I expected

If you are looking to expand your vocabulary, I think you might like this book but you might find that you already know most of these words. These are mostly words that you already know but they give a very clear definition of the word in case you weren't 100% sure of the meaning. I am a person who did not finish college but I knew most of theses words already. This is probably a great book for kids.

Didn't learn much

The first two chapters are completely pointless. The author spends time trying to convince us to listen to the program. Then we he finally gets into it, he goes to fast for some of the words which I have never heard before. They don't stick in my mind this way. He does a review which is also fast and is supposed to work with our subconscious in the morning and before bed, which I don't think helped me learn the words better. Testing the listener or using words in context would have been more effective

Listening

The accompanying reference material is not working as my expectation.
I have thought the material should be dynamicly scrolled with the audio.

Great Additional Vocabularies

There are many words that were new to me, but also many words that I already knew. Overall, the book will expand your vocabulary.

WOW

So, every second day you listen to the morning review & nightly review sessions from the previous days session.
So easy to listen to & I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve their vocabulary for personal growth.

For global learners I recommend listening to the intro & then the absolute last recording & then start from the beginning:)

All the best

Too basic for average education level

I found 95% of the words were very known to me already - and I never went to uni. I do have a reasonable IQ but I’m average intelligence and thought this was too basic.
The first chapter also heavily emphasises how much more money one can earn by expanding their vocabulary - I found this very off putting. Rather than listening to the whole book, I’ve now downloaded the list of words that comes with it and will just pick the 5% unknown to me and learn them through my own methods - it would be too tedious to listen to them all.
