Enjoy Immensely

Excellent source for positive encouragement and focus. Helps to keep oneself on task along with a bible study. Follows along with a great majority of the book of Proverbs. Highly recommend.

Rambling and outdated speech

Seemed like a lot of vague rambling. It was admitted that the book was from the 1920's and the audio was not changed which was noticeable right away. Dated speech and took just as much time trying to figure out what was meant in today's language vs the actual information. I wouldn't recommend.

My New Life Handbooks

This book was such a wonderful and eye opening experience. I have shared it with several of my friends with the hopes they find as much manna inside as I did. I listen to it on a daily basis, chapter by chapter. I find new gems and discoveries with each listen. I am so glad this book was sent to me.

Great universal wisdom

I found this book to very insightful, helpful & inspiring. I found the ideas & wisdom to be very simple yet extremely powerful when implemented . I did struggle a bit with the reference to religious text, even though I felt the ideas themselves are not religious. I found I just had to change any reference to God around to spirit or universe, whatever felt more right to me at the time. A worth while read.

interesting book worth the listen

I found this book quite interesting it was at times a little controversial to my beliefs but that is one of the things I liked about it that it challenge me. if you want something you've never had you have to do something you've never done was my belief going into this book. I think it had some really great points in there which can really improve your life and make this book well worth while.
