This is reality at its finest.

(5 stars)

When humans can take this message into their hearts and thereby transduce it to worldly action, the heaven Earth was meant to be will be ours. Also, the reader has the loveliest mis-pronunciation of words. I really respect her for caring more about sharing with us this powerful message than for the vanity of worrying about "perfect" English.

Divine fate landed this book in my path

(5 stars)

I believe divine fate landed this book in my path. Even though it was written many years ago it holds true more than ever. a great read and a great perspective to lock in your mind. If you can wrap your mind around some small but big truths in this book you will forever be a better person for it and be closer to God. Thank you Wallace D Wattles for writing this book.

very informative

(4 stars)

this is a good book it isn't anything new but it is short and sweet and to the point and put everything together very well. reader beware the author will, contradict himself, he seams keen also on pushing a Abrahamic doctrine wile taking very much philosophy from orient ideas and giving no recognition to them. he talks a lot on how things are perfect which is an older idea dumbed down and reshaped in this book to fit the doctrine he wishes to push. if not for the cunning to the reader in the book and if the good info wasn't so good I'd rate it lower but as it stands he delivers a lot of information In a very eligant andsimple day to day use kinda way. worth the listen good info

Great book and well read

(5 stars)

I really enjoyed this book. I can say it had a major impact on me and compels me to live a great life and be a blessing in society. Very fluently read as well. thanks guys!

Very good read. Title matches content.

(4 stars)

I enjoyed listening to this book. I will listen again and again until I. applying what I am hearing. "It does not matter what you read,but what you think about what you are reading". This statement from the book sounded off like a gong within me. Any one looking to hear something worth listening too, this is it.

Wonderful reading

(4 stars)

Very inspirational and supported by evidence. However, there is obviously controversy in his religious additions. Nevertheless, it stands true. The reader has a very concise and nice voice, and it was easy to understand most times. I only gave it 4 stars because at times it was hard to decipher what she said, but very scarcely. Conclusively, a very good audiobook.

Just like the title, it's really the greatest of the greatest.

(5 stars)

I really enjoyed the knowledge from this book & am really excited to apply it in my daily life routine till my appointed time to leave this world place called Earth. A must read for those who want to be great like Jesus Christ.

Is the science of being great!

(5 stars)

Highly recommend it. My personal suggestion would be to listen first his other book, the science of getting rich. Both narrated really well by the same lady. As a bonus if you'd like, try listening to the power of concentration. Read, if I'm not mistaken, by Andrea Fury.
