Publisher's Summary

The ability to make decisions is central to strong living—yet many frankly admit that they are chronically indecisive. Well, they think they are; they just haven’t made up their minds. Sound familiar? In this audio book, Dr. Barker shows how indecisive people are failure-prone, as he explores the decision-making process in the individual, especially the role of the subconscious mind in either abetting or thwarting every conscious mind decision. He then provides specific steps to shift the balance of decision-making power in your favor. Listening to The Power of Decision may well prove to be one of the best decisions you ever made.

Not a Step By Step Program for Decision Making

If you really want a book about making decisions, this is not it. It does not have any kind of practical process for actually making decisions. This book reminds me of The Secret; it talks mainly of your mind being part of the infinite, adding quotes some bible verses. I ended up forwarding through a lot of it after several chapters. This is one interesting quote: "Money is the process, not goal. Money is God in action. It is the means by which the infinite circulates in my world affairs giving me ease and joy. Money is an idea in the mind of God, the idea of circulation and ease. I am an idea in the mind of God and these two ideas now coalesce, therefore I am money."

Numerous biblical references.

This book was nothing like the short sample. I should have take time to read some reviews. It feels like sitting in on a sermon. Constantly spitting out bible versus and stories from the Good Book. The narrator is easy to listen to.

This is a practical guide of accomplishing great things in life. it's instructions on getting out of your own way. Raymond Charles Barker uses simple, precise language to convey his ideas inspiring ones to follow suit. The message is to be clear, steadfast in one's pursuit of one's goals.

I hate whack narrators, that ruin books

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I read the original book, and the narrator, totally ruins it, he sucks, I don't like hearing forewords, prefaces, and introductions, by people,, who totally destroy and manipulate the original text and ruins it,

What didn’t you like about Sean Pratt’s performance?

He is garbage, and I hate with extra altered text is added to books, if you would change Shakespeare, why ruin another authors work?

Do you think The Power of Decision needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes they need to get back to the basics, and drop this garbage

Amazing Wisdom

This is one of the most profound books of wisdom I have ever read. Every re-reading reveals deeper insights, and deepens existing insights. Practicing and internalizing this material is essential however if we wish to truly live from this level. Mere ideas and knowledge open possibilities, but only experiential wisdom meaningfully expands consciousness. TY

Powerful book!

I am such a huge fan of religious science and the spiritual concepts it teaches. This book might be one of the best yet! So many simple yet powerful concepts simplified for any person to understand. I highly recommend this book!

Maybe better written

I couldn't make it through an entire chapter. The narrator was slow and seemed unenthusiastic about what should be a passiinat and topic. What content I did hear didn't validate any of my beliefs about the power of decision, nor teach me anything new. I've heard great things about the written version. Maybe I should have started there

Great for the god squad

Once again, a title that hides its "spiritual" side. By spiritual it actually means quotes from the bible that to a practicing synic / agnostic find uncomfortable.

For those that are happy with the whole jesus / bible thing...you will love it.

This book seems to be the Anthony Robbins of the Christian self-help books.

I can see how it will be great for those who believe, for those who dont, you'll end up having to mentally ignore the lines such as: "as Luke says in verse blah blah..."

Not for me

Very useful tool

I have a large collection of self improvement programs and must say, The Power of Decision has been (still is) the most effective. People like me (chronic procrastinator, indecisive) have always found making decisions quite stressful due to fear of making the wrong one. But, this book helped me realise that deciding on acting or not acting is still a decision. So in order to move forward in life you still have to decide.

I specially loved the affirmations in each chapter, and listen to it regularly. I learned to believe in my decisions and stick by them, if it (decision) doesn't work, i don't get upset, i just see it as feed back and try a different approach, but still believing that i would succeed. That is believing in my decision! Which has helped improve my relationships both at work and at home.

Study it and live the life you will love.

Great for the middle-aged person to help you clear the a bit out of your head, I would recommend it rather than Prozac.
