Get the book but not this recording.

Nightingale threw 2 ads in here. It’s like throwing in a Coca Cola commercial in huckleberry Finn. Ridiculous.

Reference book for life!!!

It may take you a while to really engage or connect with the audio book due to the monotonous tone of the narrator, but just hang in there because you will definetely love it at the end. This book just become one of my favorite. I just got interested after watching an old interview in the Oprah Show were Leverace said this book changed his life and used as his daily refrence...Great book.

The Scientific Facts are a bit outdated

Not as good as 'The Power of your Subconscious Mind' by Joseph Murphy or even 'The Secret' by Rhonda Byrne.

Many of the Scientific Facts the author mentions has since been disproved. While I'm happy to believe in the power of...well...believe I have to say telepathy has never been proven, if physic powers were possible then it should be very easy to prove, yet no-one has done it.

Plus as a woman I got a bit tired of the way the author repeatedly mentions crying women. Apparently it's the only type of woman he has ever met.

Narration is OK. Not as good as the other 2 books I mentioned but still a solid 3/5.

Woo Woo Nonsense

Very disappointing book, offered no value which was surprising considering the positive reviews. Its 7 hours of being told that you can do anything with your mind, but without any studies or verifiable examples to back up the claims. For example, an unnamed car salesman could sell cars by willing customers to buy them. A unnamed woman who ran a bookstore could make customers buy whichever title she wanted by repeating the title in her head. A boss got one of his employers to resign by spending hours thinking that he wished he would resign. If your happy to take the author at his word then maybe this style of writing is not a problem, I need more evidence than that though.

Important Book for your Collection!

I loved all of the book and will need to purchase the hard copy in order to highlight and make notes.

Great guidelines, suggestions references of other people to look up and relevant toons on history validating the power of thought.

Real steps for manifesting your wildest dreams!

I first read this at 25 years old. I got it! I used the techniques. It worked. Just finished listening to it again now. I’m almost 55. Great reminder and thoroughly inspired to adopt all of these techniques again! Loved it.

A bit long winded

Lots of research and other people’s stories presented. Not sure I could listen to it again, as recommended at the end.
