Publisher's Summary

Life's Greatest Lessons is a wise, wonderful audiobook. In it Hal Urban, a parent and an award-winning teacher, presents 20 principles that are as deeply rooted in common sense as they are in compassion. The topics, gathered from a lifetime of teaching both children and adults, span a wide range of readily understood concepts, including attitudes about money, understanding the real meaning of "success," and the importance of having fun. This audiobook will help you find the best: in the world, in others, and in yourself. Classic in its simplicity and enduring in its appeal, Life's Greatest Lessons helps us all rediscover that the desire to live a good life is timeless.

Great audio Book!

This was a great audio book. The reader started a little slow and monotinous but the content was great! Anyone looking to improve their personal growth and learn for one mans years of wisdom will find the audio book fullfilling and invaluble. Another title for the audio book could have been "20 years (or words) of wisdom in less than 2 hours". Enjoy!

Good Review of Principles
This is a good review of principles for life. He did a good job in explaining how life works in 20 lessons. I wanted to hear some more insight or ways to apply those principles.

Fantastic

I totally enjoyed listening to this book. I have it bookmarked at certain points to remind me of the lessons I want to incorporate into my life. It has even inspired me to come up with some additional lessons that I would like to live by.

This is a MUST READ for anyone who is on the self development journey. Cheers.

I wish I read this book years ago.

This book opened my eyes, taught me some techniques of the easier or the right way of approaching my success. I haven't yet put the proficiencies in action. However, just the cognition of the right direction towards my goals makes it half way reached, by saving time and an emotional wellbeing... Enjoy your life!

Master of the Obvious

His points are so basic they are insulting. For example "you can change your attitude", "think with an open mind" an oh yeah, "be honest". There isn't anything very insightful here.

It's a true little life's bible!

It should be more popular than the most books I know for self-improvement. It's good to test yourself if you aren't missing anything in your life. Author tells the way life's realy is. Read this book instead of reading the BIBLE.

You'll find more truth here than in BIBLE and that's my guarantee.
