Not good

Just a bunch of lectures and stories. I was not satisfied. How to accomplish goals rather than increase confidence was the focus of this book. Visualizing the end state? Please. The secret revisited.

Jack Canfield is a great speaker / great story

The music interrupts the speaker in between sections and the music 'enhancements' could be much higher quality. It made me think this audio book may be meant for kids.

Disappointed with the content

Nothing special. It seems to be more of a self- marketing material with affirmation-based advice rather than a book that provides an insight into why some people become less confident than others and how to address this problem. The book does not say what to do if affirmations do not work. The music in this book was rather annoying.

Great book!

Loved this book. Narrator is awesome. Easy to listen to... I have a short attention span but this book kept me entertained. Helped me overcome my fear of speaking in front of a group- going to purchase so I can continue to listen to it and apply it to my life.

Go For it!

This is one for the best material available in the realm of Self Esteem and Confidence. Jack is as usual one of the Best Teachers with his amazing story telling skills and upbeat enthusiasm. He shares practical tools and techniques to help you understand and improve your self confidence. I loved it and I highly recommend it.

Worth it for the most part.

I appreciated that the writer narrarorated it and that the used his life stories. Very long but interactive, the hypnosis at the end was out of line and I didn't bother to finish listening when the last part came on.

Do not underestimate the power of self-image

This was an especially easy read that gave step by step guidance for building self esteem. Very useful information that's easy to implement. Highly recommend.

Overall, I am disappointed.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone with too much time on their hands!

What could Jack Canfield have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Rewritten it.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Not too bad to be fair, just a bit irritating at times.

Any additional comments?

Felt cheesy, old fashioned and of no real help. I picked up very little of any real value from this book and still have the same issues with self-esteem etc as I did before.

Some practical ideas

It was only after I bought this download I realised the author was the same guy behind Chicken Soup for the Soul. I'm afraid that raised some prejudices as what I've heard about that book led me to expect a cloying, sentimental, God-bothering listen here.

I was pleasantly surprised. There are elements of the above - perhaps more new age spiritual bunkum than religion - but generally the content is good humoured, grounded and practical. There was only one chapter that felt a little too "American" for my tastes and I ended up fast forwarding.

I've read a number of books that claim the benefits of affirmations and I've always considered their apparently magical properties to be unsubstantiated. Here Canfield provides the first logical explanation as to why they might work I've come across which means I much more likely to persist with them.

The style of reading is good too. Much of the recording is of Canfield presenting to a small, appreciative crowd. But don't let that lead you to expect one of those awful shouty 'motivational speakers'. I found his style engaging, considered and often amusing.

In between these sessions, Canfield summarises and explains direct to the listener. It's a style I found I really liked.

One final thing that amused me. A few years ago a guy I worked with decided he was going to become a motivational speaker and I went to see him once. He told a story about he had wondered down a beach tossing stranded starfish back into the sea. Tears welled up in his eyes as he described the profound effect this had on him. Listening to this tape I realise he nicked the whole story from Canfied!

Some great insights and a fun listen too. Jack Canfield is a great speaker and easy to listen to. I also like that he explains the logic behind some of his suggested techniques which are at times counter intuitive.
