This title is read calmly and clearly. The author approaches the topic of self-improvement with the grace and confidence of a master. If you have absorbed other self-improvement titles and have gotten varied results, this title will explain why, and guide you towards your true goal. It contains several references to biblical stories, but only to help illustrate its points. Well, worth the listen and motivating in its efforts.

If you are having some questions about the direction of your life and how to think out your situation I would recommend this book. There are several religious references but don't let that get in the way of the message. I am non-religious and found it to be quite helpfull.

For a self-help (audio)book, 'beautiful' is not always used to describe such. But I can't resist myself from writing this review because "A Practical Guide to Prosperous Living" is simply beautiful. The lessons are not preachy, instead, the book flows like an advice from a 'father' or 'grandfather', a figure whom I can respect and believe easily. This book is loaded with stories and advice one can use to prosper.

As an athiest I am constantly dumbfounded by these "self improvement" books that sell themselves with beautiful words and sound bites, never mentioning the soggy "spiritual" bill of goods and assumptions around which they string together the basis of their ideas on how one should live and love and ultimately rely on faith in "god" to prosper. Sneaky proselytization.
