Excerpts and workbooks needed

Too many chapters are excerpts from one or more authors that reference workbooks and other materials that significantly lesson the effectiveness of the motivational messages.

Unacceptable. this is not ZigZiglar material.

This book is not what it should be. The audio clips from other "authors" are in there somewhere, but I am sure that Zig Ziglar, Les Brown or probably most of the other "Authors" never knew or would approve of their audio recordings being used to recreate an audio book of this quality. The workbook (pdf file) is not related to the material in any way. The quoted workbook does not exist.
Do not condone the construction of this material by purchasing it. It is getting returned for a refund as soon as this review is posted.

PDF IS WRONG

Please connect correct PDF. Someone else also had already made that comment. What I've listened to so far has been beneficial, just would like access to the extra that's supposed to come with it.

Hardly about thinking big.

This audiobook is around 5% thinking big, and 95% personal development from past audiobook clips. YouTube has all of these chapters.. I wouldn't recommend this book, unless you've never heard from these authors.

It is a "talk"/seminar, not a book. No PDF.

Any additional comments?

The speaker references a PDF throughout the seminar, but audible does not have the rights to share the PDF with you. Makes this purchase worthless.

Good book but wrong pdf attached

I have enjoyed the book but the PDF workbook that she refers to is not attached to the audiobook. There is a PDF but it is not the workbook that she goes over. I have contacted audible and spoke to representative who said they would take care of it. All I got in response was a form letter about how to down load a PDF from library. Too bad

Misleading

There are some big names that entice you and then you see that almost the first half is Marcia Wieder... nothing against her but only about an hour of Zig Zigler - and nothing said of "Thinking big".. did not finish the book. maybe it gets better but I felt misled. thanks to Audible return policy, I did not waste a credit on this.

Really mixed bag with some very poor performances

Zig ziglar, Sheila Murray Bethel and Les Brown were probably the best as far as I was concerned. Most of the other presenters were on a grey scale of average to outright poor. Whoever it is later in the book (chapter 11 or 13 I think) who starts talking about brain physiology has no idea what they're even talking about. I'm amazed someone would parade around such embarrassingly poor knowledge and just blatantly bullshit their way through. Then have the impressive arrogance and self delusion to think it was worth publishing in a collection even as average quality as this.

Just incase anyone is curious an axon and dendrites are parts of nerves NOT different types of nerves.

Safe to say had I made the mistake of paying for this audio book it would have been returned long prior to finishing. In fact, I only finished it due to the combination of my unceasing optimism that the next speaker would be better or at least not worse than the last. But more importantly, that I was gardening wearing my headphones and my phone was an inconvenient distance from my person and my hands were dirty.
This collection proves once again that the self-help world is plagued with narcissists and snake oil salesmen.

Brilliant. You will learn, laugh, cry and reflect.

Absolutely loved this book that was recommended to me by a friend. Each section is read by an inspirational guide and each one has something for you to enjoy and learn from. try it and you will laugh, cry and become a better YOU.

surprisingly good

I got the book for free, had no expectations, thought ‘I’ll give it a go’ and glad I did! I might listen again and take notes (which isn’t something I usually do)

Good variety of speakers

I liked the variety of contributors. Standouts for me were Les Brown, Dr Larry Iverson.

Some very good points made by all contributors.

A good quality investment.

Inspiration from many lens

I enjoyed listening to the various authors/ speakers who present thinking big in their own ways.
Certainly has inspired me to seek out more from some of these.

Cringe

it's pretty much useless without the workbook that is NOT included with the audio book which is assumedly the marketing ploy being implemented. It's free but still not worth the time.

No workbook

She is basically reading the workbook but guess what? There is no workbook.
At least it is not included in the library. Can someone sort this out please?
Otherwise it doesn’t make very easy to do her exercises.
