Reviews

Some good and some pseudo-science rubbish

(5 stars)

The book is read adequately and a good job overall. The content is great at getting you hyped up for self improvement and positive thinking. There is also some great reminders of what we all know we should be do, but alas have yet to truly do consistently. There is however the stretch of fanciful notions of a higher self and cosmic consciousness. The falling back to a Christian core and Bible quotes instead of original ones is a draw back too. Overall the book is worth a listen, but it's a fine line.

I'll listen it several times

(5 stars)

I listened this audio book when I was driving. The message is to be effective you need to concentrate. I admired that this message which reiterated by modern motivator, had been well disclosed a hundred year ago. I need to listen it several times and practices the exercises. Thank you.

Terrifically useful book! Hard to believe it was written nearly 100 years ago by a person born before the Civil War. His advice is sound and insightful, stated in clear, practical terms. I found it immediately beneficial. The bottom line is that improving your skill at focusing on whatever you want to do allows you to be more productive, engaged and successful in meeting personal and professional goals. More true than ever in today's world of infinite distraction.

I seek happiness,wisdom and the power to help others ❤ I love the ideas discussed in this book and how we are responsible for our lives and what we receive ..and I love how the wrighter sais that happiness is our birth right ..I am going to listen to it again because I have a lot to reflect on 👍

Excellent self improvement material

(5 stars)

Often disregarded, the power of concentration is the ultimate key of our living. Self awareness, desires, emotions and fears could all be if not completely, then in big part controlled by us. Excellent book with great examples and exercises to try, would recommend to everyone, regardless of age/gender.

Simply Brilliant!

(4.5 stars)

The book is simple and inspiring. The voice of the reader isn't that inspiring though as she seems to merely be reading stuff off text. But she gets the message across clearly. I've gone through this book back to back twice. Every line is important and has the power to change you if you follow it properly. Beautiful insight and some very good exercises for the mind and will too!

(5 stars)

This is a must read (hear)! Especially for young adults and teens. Mastery of the mind and self needs to be a priority before the attempt to learn persuasion and depth of conversation. I am a better person after having listened to this audio book. I look forward to sharing this with my family and implementing the tools provided to enrich my life, and the lives of those around me.

Not entirely accurate

(3 stars)

The tone of the writer is preachy and accusing. Some of his points are true but it's unpleasant to listen to because he suggests we suppress ourselves so much until we are barely human. A passionate person can just as easily be successful in life.
