Great Message ! But

Very inspirational and motivating messages . The only drawback is the audio quality is very poor throughout the speeches and isn’t balanced volume wise and even goes mute for a while during the presentations .

This is terribly produced.

Parts cut in and out.

At one part there is part of a commercial.

I didn’t pay for it, it I would have I would be very upset.

This seems bootlegged

The audio quality is poor. On one them it clearly states the speech is copyrighted. I'll be requesting a refund. As to speakers, the content is good. Take what you like and leave the rest.

great speeches, some tracks horribly edited

I enjoyed the speeches but felt like I was back in the late 90's fighting buffer. when the book was already downloaded and only certain tracks were effected.

worst audio book ever

i listen to a lot of audio while working...everyone of these speeches is on youtube for free and about 80% of them are college graduation speeches...hard to believe thats where all the best are. i feel this book was quickly slapped together to make an easy buck...dont buy it.

Better Speeches Lacking

Good listen! Great advice and needed reminders for daily graduation. All speakers emphasize giving as the surest fulfillment.

Unlistenable

Thought this was right up my street, but the editing/sound is so poor it's impossible to get through. Getting a refund now.

Sceptical but enjoyed

These are all graduation speeches and probably all available on YouTube. I enjoyed listening to this and gave me some inspiration at a low time. Rick rigsby and jk Rowling my personal favourites.

Pop quality

I paid to hear a book of speeches not the Harvard University Anthem which you must sit through after Bill Gates speech.

There is a big chunk missing in the middles of Steve jobs speech and the general quality of how this has been put together is poor.

Great speakers, great speeches poor composition.

Very inspirational

This is a compilation of graduation speeches delivered by some of the greats, such as Steve Jobs , Bill Gates & JK Rowling. I'm sure you can listen to them all for free on YouTube or the university websites, but let's be honest, you're never going to do that. So do yourself a favour and get this audio book. There are some truly inspiring speeches here and it's well worth a listen. If we all lived by the tenets herewithin, we would be more successful, our lives would be richer and the world would be a better place.

Hardly inspiring

really disappointed with this one im afraid , speeches were quite boring given the calibre of the people featured, Matthew McConaughey's speech finished me off , I was fast asleep after that one and decided not to waste my time listening to the rest.

Definitely NOT the best motivational speeches

Poor audio quality and some speeches were very average. The title is very misleading and quite frankly this book is disappointing

Poor sound quality for many of the speeches

Disappointed with the quolie. The speeches are great but the sound is poor. Often cutting out and with interference.
