I got a different point of view!!! Thanks a lot :)

It was my first time to listen to the odio book.
Actually, I'm a bigner to study English. Reading is one of my favorite things. So I tried to learn English reading English books. It's the first book. I really satisfied with this way to read books.

I recommend listening to this book!

This is a great book! I was unsure of this book at first but the more I listened to it the better it got! There are some amazing stories in here that are very inspirational and motivational. I thought it was quite religious at first but if you keep an open mind about it, the messages and wisdom that is shared is spectacular. I hope you will have a wonderful time listening to this book, I did. :)

Overrated. Successful because of great marketing.

This book is so successful because of their relentless promotional efforts, they'll tell you that themselves. There were a few inspirational stories but most were mediocre and a few were absurd, such as "My Soul Mate" by Victor Mark Hanson. He divorced his wife of 27 years because he thought he could do better. I cringed while listening to his list of traits for the perfect mate, very shallow. One of the narrators sounded pretentious.

Good Stories, a bit too Sentimental

Good Stories, but very little practical help and unfortunately far too Sentimental for my liking.

probably better in print

I listen to books on x1.5 speed. This works for most books nicely. however I get the feeling that with chicken soup for the soul you need to take your time - reread - digest each story - and let it sink in.
don't get me wrong - I liked it and some stories were inspiring and uplifting.
however I do get the feeling it's probably one of those books best consumed with the eyes rather than the ears (especially on fast speed)

Out of date boring stories

My expectations were way higher then what was delivered. Not worth half the price!
Such a great way (for the authors) to make money.
