The Brick

I have listened to and read many motivational and self help books through the years, But this had to be one of the best listens in a long time. I have been looking for that brick along side my head to get things going in there, well this is it. Not too long and gets the point across. GREAT SELECTION.

Best book on thinking yet

Of the many books I've listened to on thinking, this held my attention the best and gave me the most to think about.

Lots of good ideas!

Superficially Related to Einstein and Yet...

Where does How to Think Like Einstein rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

If you've listened to self-improvement books before, there's nothing new here. I'm of the school, though, that it never hurts to hear these basic success principals again and again.

Any additional comments?

This book could just as easily be titled How to Think Like *Insert Famous Figure Here.* It doesn't feel like the author studied Einstein's life and then came up with the principles for thinking like him. Rather, he already had the principles for success and latched them onto Einstein's life. That said, it's a quick and easy listen.

Bad Advice

This book can be summed up by saying "think outside the box". It was flacky and had some very very bad examples.

Good Book

This book might not interest everyone. However, living in a country filled with constant conflict, to me this is a very interesting book.

Mindless Droning

This is my opinion. I have read and listen to many books. This audio book is a waste of time. I could not finish due to boring information and mindless droning. I wish I never spent the money.

In saying this. I want to say Audible has been a great service with some great books.

Too much enthusiasm

This book has okay. The narration was the big turn off for me. I could not get through the entire book because of that problem. The ideas were good ones, but nothing really life-changing.

A good introduction

This is a good introduction to problem solving. it won't make you an Einstein genius but it should stimulate an appetite for problem solving
