Fine Books

It was a great treat to find that the books recommened in the movie The Secret here on audible.com. In keeping with the overall theme of these books, you should embrace the concepts put forth by these writers. The concepts are clearly and faithfully presented. These books are not New York Times best sellers with murder, mayhem, and mystery, and along those lines, they are read appropriately. I for one, was not looking to be "entertained" by the reading, but to gather more information. What you will hear is wonderfully solid books with straight forward concepts and values that can be translated into day. The reading is just fine; the reading doesn't need to be exciting because the concepts presented are very exciting, and you don't need to be entertained to absorb the teachings being given to you through the books. The content is much more important; what is in the box is far more important than the wrapping. I highly recommend these books regardless of using a book credit. The Wallace Wattles portion is worth the price of the whole set, although you can buy it as a single book.

Great Books Poor Narration

Great Books, Poor Narration. The narrator will go off in monotone for paragraphs at a time, then start mumbling. The information in the books are definitly jewels, but hard to get past the narration.

Waste of a credit

The narration takes classics and turns them into boring information. Buy the books -- read them yourself -- the information is good, the delivery is awful.

Don't buy it. Very bad performance!

The voiceover is very poor. He reads very fast, without any inflexion or emotion. These are great classics but the performance is so bad that it is almost imposible to hear.

I regret buying it!

Timeless wisdom

Although the narrator's voice is lacking in passion and is a bit monotone, the wisdom of the books under this title is priceless. I've listened to the stories over and over again and have benefitted greatly!

Amateurish narration

Although the books included in this audio are classics, the narration is poorly done. It is as if you'd asked your brother, who has no interest in these titles, to read to you while you drive.

Meaty

A great collection of rich content. Regarding earlier comments about the narrator--I like him because he reads without trying to win an academy award for acting. Perfect for being read to sleep at night. He reminds me of the Radio Reader on PBS, or a hypnotist. A good way to get these ideas into your subconscious mind where they can do some good.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Secrets of Success?

the art of getting rich

Any additional comments?

if you are a reader of "the secret", the art of getting rich is the book reflected by Rhonda Byrne in the beginning as the real book that opened her mind and she read in one sitting!!<br/>you will enjoy the entire collection but pay special attention to the art of getting rich.....it is the truth and the belief behind the secret.......good luck

Great stuff, dull reader

The most inspiring books (five stars) exposed to the dullest, almost yawning reader (one star) made me postpone listening to the audio for months. Now, after listening, I do appreciate the books and even - after a few hours - got used to the reader. Glad I bought it, after all, but would definitely consider buying another version, should a more vivacious reader be found.
