Poor version of The Power of Clarity

What disappointed you about Focal Point?

I have the Power of Clarity and so far this a word for word version of that book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Brian Tracy again?

Yes, he's a great author but this book should be taken off the shelves (yes, I know it's downloadable audio) since a better recorded duplicate exists.

What didn’t you like about Brian Tracy’s performance?

This was poorly recorded.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Focal Point?

Digitally remaster the recording.

Any additional comments?

Don't buy this book, buy the Power of Clarity instead. Same info, better recording. The info is good of course but I guess I just expect better from Brian Tracy.

From a self help junkie

By far the most practical, straightforward, and action inducing book I've ever read. The best aspect of this book, is that Brian gives you a format of how to approach each area of your life and helps you ask the important questions that will help you organize your thoughts on a way that best positions you to pursue your goals.

Excellent Introduction to Audible/Audio Books

If you are looking for an entertaining "read" you are looking at the wrong book. This book is simply something that everyone in their lifetime should listen to, multiple times even!

Brian Tracy is a bit monotonous, and at times I felt like I was being brainwashed, but in the most positive way possible. There is nothing contained in this book that is controversial or what's effect has room for dispute. It tells the reader what they need to hear and delivers it in the most concise and direct way possible!

To anyone needing motivation and a straightforward plan on how to change your life for the better, do yourself a favour and get this audiobook! As a 24 year-old man who questions his direction in life on a daily basis, I can assure you that the value is there and it will be the best money you've spent in a long time!

Another Classic of Brian Tracy!

FOCAL POINT is an outstanding audiobook and book, especially for those who aren't familiar with Brian Tracy's works. I feel that is a blend and compromise between the two outstanding audiobooks EAT THAT FROG and THE ULTIMATE GOALS PROGRAM. One could bypass those two programs and purchase FOCAL POINT 1st then expand on FOCAL POINT'S teachings with EAT THAT FROG and THE ULTIMATE GOALS PROGRAM by buying them afterwards. All 3 audio programs contain life-changing information so buy all 3 if you are serious about achieving your life Goals!

Worst audio recording ever!

I don't know about the quality of information contained within the pages of the book but the audio is so bad I don't know how anyone could listen for more than a few minutes. Deleted it.

Please record this is a professional studio

Dear Brain,

i love your books, i really do.
It helps me a lot with my crazy life, and to stay focussed.
Still eat my frogs, every day lol

But please, for the love of your brand and your hard earned name, please re-record this is a professional studio.
I can understand it takes a lot of time and hassle to record, i get that. Or else get somebody else to record it for you. Its not that you dont have any budget for this, im sure.

Because this book sound terrible.
It sounds like you are in your bathroom or toilet, speaking through a cheap toy microphone you found on ebay.

Its really, really important that your sound quality is up to date, so please make sure it is.

Thanks! w

Practical wisdom that can change your life

This is great. A lot of books in the self help genre are full of platitudes and light on substance. This book is like having a wise uncle guiding you step by step towards a more successful life and career. It doesn't make overblown claims: you have to put in the work- but crucially, it spells out exactly what to do and what not to do. Well structured, easy to understand and easy to start putting into practice right away. I'll be listening to it again for sure.
