Publisher's Summary

This modern morality tale by gifted writer and speaker Andy Andrews teaches seven fundamental strategies for creating a successful life. Much like the best-selling books by Og Mandino, this unique narrative is a blend of entertaining fiction, allegory, and inspiration. Storyteller Andy Andrews gives a front-row seat for one man's journey of a lifetime. David Ponder has lost his job and the will to live. When he is supernaturally selected to travel through time, he visits historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln, King Solomon, and Anne Frank. Each visit yields a Decision for Success that will one day impact the entire world

    Story
    "I thought I wouldn't like it but loved it instead"
    What made the experience of listening to The Traveler's Gift the most enjoyable?

    The stories and voices really came alive and I was captivated by it. I typically read books and prefer that but this book really lends itself to listening and Andy does an amazing job presenting it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The power of the story and character that really connected with my struggles and aspirations.


    Have you listened to any of Andy Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I subscribe to his podcast but that has no where near the focus and production value of this book.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Traveler's Gift and why?

    David Ponder - main character


    Any additional comments?

    Andy does a great job with the voices, tempo and passion of the story.

    Story
    "Little Heavy Handed but still an uplifting read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I like to read and listen to book that make you feel motivated and positive and recommend on that basis.


    What about Andy Andrews’s performance did you like?

    Good voices, was easy to remember which character was which. That can be difficult to follow in an audiobook sometimes.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Follow this man's uplifting journey as he discovers the secrets to life


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a sucker for these kind of books with the good message. Reminded me of the classic Christmas movie "It's a Wonderful Life". It was a little heavy handed and formulaic with how it progressed, but I think the heart was in the right place. Good for boosting your enthusiasm and focusing on the positive. I would put this more at the self help/development side of books rather than just straight fiction.

    Story
    "Life changing book & principles, if you apply them"

    Where do I begin? Are you ready to add perspective to your life? Are you prepared to take action after learning arguably seven of the most valuable principles in life? Andy Andrews does a great job narrating this amazing book. Easy to listen to and great stories that keep you engaged. Prior to this book I read Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill; and I got twice as much out of this book because the narrating makes that much of a difference. Get the book, read and apply it. You will NOT regret it.

    "best book I've ever touched."

    This was the best book I've ever read, and the best description I can give is that it's a repository of wisdom. If you read the alchemist you'll be more blown away after reading this.

    "Probably one of the best messages ever given."

    I highly recommend this book to all people who are struggling or have had a hard life and they're trying to find their way. Andy's simplistic parables and perfect references to history culminate in this fantastic tome.
