Good group of books

I read the secret & these were recommended readings. Glad I did they back up what The Secret was about. Gratitude is the answer.

Great content, abysmal reader

Where does The Secrets of Success rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Hard to answer because the content is amazing and important but the performance (reader) is abysmal

Don't know if this is a good book or not...

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Narrators are so crucial for success of audiobooks. I am a fan of personal and professional development books but could not get past the horrible choice for narration in the first section. His voice has nice tones, but was too monotonous and poorly enunciated for this subject. This style would be a fabulous narrator for self hypnosis or relaxation material. I was so busy being bored, I have no idea what the book content really included.

What variety!

I thought the narrator was very hard to understand because many of the stories or books are really pretty old. There was no way to bring this forward and apply it to modern day life. The use of words that we no longer use in modern day speech made this seem very dated. I would save my money and spent it instead on something written in the last 5 years.

The Secretes of Success: Eight Self Help Classics

I wish I would have read the reviews. Great classics horribly narrated. Wasted credit. I'm starting the third book of eight and it has turned into a grind to listen.....not sure if I'll make it through all eight books because of the narrator.
