Old Text, Bad Direction

The text in this book sounds like it was written in the Fifties. I wish someone had gone through and revised it just a bit before recording it. But that's not the big problem. The big problem is that the voice actor seems like he's rushing through the text, like he's got a bus to catch. He mispronounces words, he zips through places where he could have given just a breath for emphasis. It's distracting. And I think it's just bad direction. The ideas presented are good, but I never got a sense of 'the system'. It wasn't laid out well or it was rushed through with the speed reader. Pity, because I've heard good things about Stone.

Great book, terrible performance

Performer rushes through as though to meet a deadline. There are better versions of this audiobook.

Life Changing

Everyone should get this book or audio. It's really the only book (besides the Bible) that has truly open up my eyes in aspect of life. Spiritual, family man and business. Specially on how to really accomplish what's important in life. On how one needs to stop being selfish and living form one owns Ambition. It shows you that if you work hard you can make a difference in the life's of many and that's it is harder not to work than to work. Meaning the outcomes either way if you choose not work you will have it hard so you might as well work.

Why the rush?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This narrator goes 90 to nothing. I have to slow it down to 75% speed. He doesn't even slow down between chapters. Maybe he was in a race with another narrator.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Absolutely.

Any additional comments?

The content is good, the narrator is really bad. I'd rather just read the book and I'd return this if I could.

Good read

I enjoyed the book, helps change perspective I will recommend to friends. Reader did seem rushed like other reviews have said might want to put it on slow if you are not a fast reader but personally it was not an issue for me.

Powerful!

A beautiful "read". Profound yet simplistic. This triggers a shift towards the positive and serves as a compass that points to the real North.

Excellent book for building up solid traits!!

This book really impacted me, especially with the real life stories and application of the principles within this book. Definitely a system that can be used in sales, or just to improve your overall character traits- a timeless classic!!

Narration is not storytelling

I enjoyed the book. The prose are distinctly middletown, mid last century USA, and the story tells of success through determination and vision- i feel this story would have been more enjoyable if better told!

Please understand the prose of the story are fine, but the narrator reads the text rather than recounts the story, and liberally uses emphasis rather than tone and pauses.

For instance, no sooner has the narrator finished reading one chapter than, not pausing for breath, he starts reading another- nor does his tone modulate to between conclusions and analysis. This listener felt almost exhausted at the end of the book.

In conclusion, i enjoyed the content but not the narration. Buy another version of the book.

Probably the best self help !

I’ve listened to and read quite a few self help and motivational books now, and this;once it gets going is right up there with the best.
Stone I find simplifies the message Napoleon Hill is trying to get across.
Excellent listening 👍

Great book

Book is great but my only objective is the narrator (Jason McCoy) that looks like he is paid by reading on time... too fast - it would be perfect than - overall worth of listening. I advise very much.

Great book. Poorly narrated.

Great content but poorly narrated. First book I’ve ever had to slow down. No change in tone or pauses to distinguish between paragraphs, sections or chapters. Persevered though and got a lot from it.
