Sales Plug for Contributing Authors

Save your money/credits unless you have never learned anything from any experience you have had in your life or converse with anyone about goals and objectives. I purchansed this item to preview thinking it might be beneficial for my 17 year-old son, entering the college selection process. I would only give it to him as a joke or lesson in the fine art of the con. At the conclusion of each segment rader/listener is provided an offering of books to purchase and/or websites to refer to by the contributor of that 'lesson'. The tome of 'lessons' is full of contradictions, one will advise you to identify your goals and strive to reach. A future lesson will tell you to ask the universe in general terms provide what you want and the positive energy will bring it your way, then another will direct you to what you want through the power of prayer. Need advice on time management? Make a list and priortize, DUH. Don't walk..RUN from this publication.

Great information, poor presentation

I love Joe, I love listening to Joe give us the great information that he has discovered. He has a passion about him that is beyond awesome. What I don't like, is when he pieces his information together with other people reading the stories, people who sound like they read the filmstrips in high school. I distracts me from the information because it sounds so boring. The information in this book is priceless, but how its delivered is poor.

One other thing, please stop using people who have called in via a teleconference or people who have left you voice mail with information read from their script, or the teleconferences themselves (referring to a few other Joe Vitale audio books on this site). Those are extremely poor quality recordings and should not be used in putting out a quality product. Or at least find someone who can clean the audio up for you.

And for the folks who run Audible, please do us a favor. If there is more than one person other than the author that is narrating the book, let us know. Put on there, "multiple readers." so we know we're not getting just Joe Vitale, which is who I want to listen too, not 15 other profession voice talent people that will put me to sleep while I'm driving. I'd suggest getting this book rather than listening to the audio.

Oh and Joe, if someone other than you is giving the web address for the person they are reading the part of, have them spell it out. Some of the names they say as the address are incorrect and phonetics just doesn't come across well for something like Hartoonian. Which I think is not how it is spelled.

Thoughtful and entertaining...

Enjoyed the book immensely, listening to parts of it over and marking favorite passages. A lot of wisdom told in homespun, non preachy style.

Good

I like the way he had stories of his life how he over came things. He encourages you to love others as well as helping others. I love the book.

a bit all over the place

If you're looking for life's missing instruction manual then this audible will not flow like the abc's. For me one has to start with some essential beginning skills and then progress onto other things and branch out. This book is all over the place and is 5 cd's long. So you get your money's worth with quantity but I feel not quality. I feel it really jumps all over the place and has so much in it that one turns away. Perhaps it's a personal thing but these 101 ways of doing things just gives me overload and I don't know what to work on first.

The Jack canfield success principles is really much better I feel. Also it's live audience so it's more real.
'Pure Meditation' by Pema Chodron and 'getting unstuck' is of tremendous value as a starting and finishing point.

If this review makes sense check out some of my other reviews, especially Ron Holland.

I loved it. Should have read this book in my twenties. Would have avoided so much misery. Thank you God for Joe Vitale.
