    Great tonic and booster

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Didn't make much headway on the paperback so switched to the audio version and that was far more enjoyable and a short listen!

    What did you like best about this story?

    Lots of recurring themes in this book that I've read / learnt from others and this repetition only helps to strengthen your beliefs.

    What does Norman Vincent Peale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    What was enjoyable was that its by Dr Peale himself and I always like listening to the actual author as somehow and in this case it energises the book. Listening to that drawl and the cadence of his voice transports you into the past, its like some old grandfather or learned gentleman speaking to you

    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Although the messages are quite familiar I still found the book to be most uplifting and a great tonic whilst running to boost your confidence and strengthen your fortitude and remind you that you can if you think you can, such true words!

    It was a great piece of work

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    it gets to the point quickly in an encouraging way.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    His attitude was my favorite character. He was very enthusiastic no made up stuff

    Have you listened to any of Norman Vincent Peale’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is the same in this one.

    Any additional comments?

    I have read that someone was disappointed that he talks about God a lot. The thing is that Mr Peale is a minister. And it is not in the way of learning about what his message is.

    Ultimately a Positive affirmation book

    The book is a "you can do it" book so if you are looking for that get it. I didn't find much value but it would be good if you need a pick me up or a jolt of positivity.

    Another wonderful book by Norman Vincent Peale

    I have listened to several of Norman Vincent peaked books and this one does not disappoint. He keeps the reader engaged and learning every step of the way.

    OK but same old stuff

    He may have been one of the first to say the things in this book, but they have been said better many times since.

    Really helped me in a time of need

    I was going through a difficult situation at work. Didn't think I could do anything and started fearing for the worse. This book came at the right time. So timely. I recommend it to all! :)

    Amazing

    I realise now that positive things happen to positive people and the thought of failure itself is destructive. Miracles happen to people who have faith and when you have faith in God, you are also able to have faith in yourself.
    Thank you Norman and I hope you keep writing books
    I use to think why me, it's because I am a bad person but now realise life is a struggle and it will only be mastered if you overcome your obstacles and think of solutions for your problems without your emotions getting in the way.
