Great book to revisit and listen to

I first read this book over 20 years ago and I followed the 30 days of reading each scroll. I developed the good habits it teaches. Now listening to it I realized that I didn't head some of warnings when you don't exercise your brain muscle. I'm super excited to have this book in my audio library and I will take on my daily runs for about the next 10 months. Here's a tip, bookmark the chapters for each scroll and listen to that chapter for 30 days on your commute to work or during your daily exercise time.

Paradigm Shift

Before you read this you must understand that IF you apply the principles in this book to your life the way it describes you cannot fail. You may struggle and have some setbacks but you will NOT fail. The seven principles are all things we know to do. However, this book teaches you to make them habits, not something you kind of know. What do I mean by kind of know? It means when someone mentions them you say, "oh, yeah that makes sense."

If you think, "I cannot live by those principles, they are too hard." Fear not, the book teaches you to create a habit around each one.

Good habits trump experience every day, all day.

Waste of time

Let me sum this book up for you- be positive, work hard, don't give up. You're better off reading an Eric Worre or Hal Elrod book.

Amazing read/listen! Everyone in the world would be better if they read this!

Great listen!

Story is very interesting in how it interweaves religion into the over all plot. With out the greatest salesman in the world, Jesus may not have ever grown up?! Interesting to think about!

So inspiring and made me gasp and be still

OK, this book was nothing like I expected and I have to say I am glad I listened to it. I really enjoyed how Mark Bramhall sounded while narrating it.. I found the book very inspiring and I'm going to listen to each chapter on the scroll writings a number of times. Thank you for brining this book to me!

Timeless wisdom

The principles in this book are timeless. Certainly relevant to our times. I have started the second part of my life/career, yet I found the book inspiring and a reminder of the basics.

The story is short and engaging and the voice of the narrator is just perfect for it.

Misleading

Random book about random story. Provides no useful info, strongly don't recommend. I would prefer a full cash back. Can't believe I spent my money on this garbage and I do not understand why it needs to exist.

Excellent retelling of an old story

The title can be misleading - the principles set out in Og Mandino's classic from the 60s are timeless.

This book is weird and wacky. If you like Alladin you will like this book.
