Note: Abridged Edition <> Book Edition

Disappointing to say the least. The book consists of two parts. Part 1: What is Self-Talk and How It Works. Part 2: Words of Self-Talk (containing over 2000 examples). The recording touches upon the highlights of Part 1 and contains 1-2% of the examples. I really wished it had more of Part 2.

Don't waste your money like I did

Don't waste your money on the Audible version of this book. The author drones on and on about the benefits of self-talk, why it works, and how it can help you without teaching the listener to gain these benefits. The only useful messages are "Only work on improving one habit at at time" and "You must be patient - reprogramming yourself takes time". There is no other worthwhile content on this recording. This audio recording is total waste of your money, and more importantly, your time.

nothing really new

The author proclaims that his ideas and concepts are different from postive thinking, affirmations and self-hypnosis but, to my mind, he really didn't seem to demonstrate that. If you have had any kind of exposure to any of the above, then you understand the majority of what he covers here. He goes on way too long about the benefits of his methods,(we all know we're in a better mood, life goes better, if we "think good thoughts"), and says very little about the application.The only really useful thing he said was to take one issue to work on and stay with it until your thinking about it has changed. Otherwise I could find nothing new or particularly inspiring.

Informercial; Should Have Been Titled 'An Introduction to Self Talk'

Read like the first chapter only; this was essentially informercial for why you need to buy more self talk books from the author.

Depressed ? Self-talk will really benefit you...

What did you love best about The Self-Talk Solution?

Years ago when I was depressed following a divorce, this information gave me insight and direction on making "life" better. Choose what makes you happy by making good choices and repeating positive self-talk daily. It works !

What did you like best about this story?

I like Shad Helmstetter's voice and so glad he speaks his own words.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

You can listen to this book all at one sitting, then later, you listen to Shad Helmstetter<br/>daily for reinforcement.

See Darell's review

What would have made The Self-Talk Solution better?

See Brian Tracy's Bullseye for a great book.

What could Shad Helmstetter have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

this was mostly why and very little on how

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Shad Helmstetter?

his illustrstraions were average.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

waste of my time with very little on how solution.

Not inspirational

I found this one boring and redundant, full of fluff and nothing of substance. The narration could be better if it felt more like someone was talking to me, rather than just reading one line after another.

Helpful , practical, concise

Effectively communicates complicated issues and makes accessible in a way not usually done in the self-help literature
