Great book to revisit and listen to

I first read this book over 20 years ago and I followed the 30 days of reading each scroll. I developed the good habits it teaches. Now listening to it I realized that I didn't head some of warnings when you don't exercise your brain muscle. I'm super excited to have this book in my audio library and I will take on my daily runs for about the next 10 months. Here's a tip, bookmark the chapters for each scroll and listen to that chapter for 30 days on your commute to work or during your daily exercise time.

Paradigm Shift

Before you read this you must understand that IF you apply the principles in this book to your life the way it describes you cannot fail. You may struggle and have some setbacks but you will NOT fail. The seven principles are all things we know to do. However, this book teaches you to make them habits, not something you kind of know. What do I mean by kind of know? It means when someone mentions them you say, "oh, yeah that makes sense."

If you think, "I cannot live by those principles, they are too hard." Fear not, the book teaches you to create a habit around each one.

Good habits trump experience every day, all day.

Amazing read/listen! Everyone in the world would be better if they read this!

Great listen!

Story is very interesting in how it interweaves religion into the over all plot. With out the greatest salesman in the world, Jesus may not have ever grown up?! Interesting to think about!

Liked it until the last chapter

Nice parable at first, it had some great motivational sayings BUT the last chapter started speaking about Jesus which was confusing, it didn’t resonate. I stopped 5 mins before the end

Based on the Bible!

Not surprised it's a great book based on another great book, the Bible.

All the principals are from the Bible.
You can apply them, but you won't be fulfilled without God!

Enjoy it!

Excellent retelling of an old story

The title can be misleading - the principles set out in Og Mandino's classic from the 60s are timeless.

Absolute waste of time

If you like a lot of fluff and indirect conversation, this is the book for you.
