Publisher's Summary

Whether you're self-employed, a middle manager, or a Fortune 500 executive, it's easy to get stuck in a humdrum life and only fantasize about "what could have been." Motivational speaker Steve Chandler helps you turn that way of thinking into "what will be." ReInventing Yourself is filled with techniques for breaking down negative barriers and letting go of pessimistic thoughts that prevent you from fulfilling - or even allowing yourself to conceive of - your goals and dreams. Within each of us is an inspiration - a spark of insight about the person we were meant to be. ReInventing Yourself helps us to name that vision, to call it ours and to begin to make it come true. We really can become the people we've always wanted to be. Steve Chandler tells us how.

"Steve Chandler lights you up with the glow of his internal neon...He's one of the funniest men I've ever known...and yet when he presents is rock-solid and reassuring." (Lisa Schnebly, The Arizona Republic)

Four stars for content, terrible to listen to

This book has good content worth 4 stars but the tone of the reader (author) is beyond terrible. I had read other reviews before buying and thought it was ridiculous that some of the reviews lowered the rating based on the quality of the reader. I was wrong! I can't begin to describe how awful the reader's tone and voice is. I would describe it as a combination of the Ben Stein character in Ferris Bueler's Day Off and the Talking Al Gore doll from a Simpsons episode that would say in a droning voice "You are hearing me talk.? I literally thought I had a defective tape adapter the first time listened to it.

There is a passage that talks about "igniting the fire within" and being childlike in the most droning, dispassionate voice you can imagine. The content just doesn?t fit and is almost lost because of the voice.

I believe the key to benefiting from self-help books is reading or listing to the program more than once. I have tried to listen to this program a second time and can't do so because the voice is so bad.

FIx the audio please

There is a terrible quality problem with the narration. It is hard to imagine but this was made on tape and is full of wow and flutter. The speed is wrong and at times it is almost unlistenable. You think they would have fixed this by now since everyone else has complained but I guess they don't read the reviews or care. Because of this I can't form a very high opinion, I think there is good content on this but I will have to buy the book or the CD.

Steve Chandler's content is wonderful

I must admit that I do use a great product from enounce.com (2xAV) that allows me to speed up the playback on any audio up to 2.5 times. Steve's slow delivery would have cost him stars without it but at 1.5x normal speed, this audio is great! (Steve - talk faster!!!)

I'm in sales management and listen to a steady stream of motivational tapes - Steve's content is exceptionally good, he's entertaining and I wish he'd put out more material (been looking for it!)

Wow!

This book is amazing. So many powerful thoughts and ideas. Steve speaks about being an owner of your life, and shows you ways to master the idea. Have listened to the book several times already, and am always finding new content and moments of realization.

This is an Amazing Book. I have listened to it 3X

This book met more than my expectations. It has become my morning ritual to listen to this audio book over and over again. I probably would not have time to read in my busy periods. Steve Chandler is amazing, it is like having your own personal coach.

Another brilliant helpful book

Steve's approach to gaining real joyous purpose for the human spirit is unique, encouraging, and in the voice of a loving father.
