  • "Repeat of his old stuff but still good"

    Overall

    Anyone not familiar with Brian Tracy's work would do well to purchase this as a good introduction at a bargain price, especially if buying on monthly subscription.

    However much of this tape is repackaged old stuff - I already have most of it. Some of it seems to be from The Pschology of Acheivement series, which sadly isn't available in full on Audible.

    I have been listening to Brian's tapes since 2004 - they are very helpful for keeping your mind focused on things that work, and in creating and setting realistic goals.

  • "Fascinating stuff"

    Overall

    Okay, I am wondering if maybe I'm being a bit of a sucker here - there are some valid arguments for slating this book - taking itself a bit too seriously, lacking humour, dubious connections to and input from 50 Cent - but nevertheless I found this fascinating. The ideas are so true - people tend to respect those who have no fear and can face people down; it is vital to be able to walk away from any deal you are not happy with; 50 Cent probably really did learn a lot of the "laws of power" on the street, and these are explained well here. The fault is in the slightly jumbled-up-ness of the book - Robert Greene's The 48 Laws of Power is slightly more focused - but given that I have played this through a few times, it rates as one of my favourites.

    The 50th Law, combines the unique talents of hip hop and pop culture icon 50 Cent (aka Curtis Jackson) and Robert Greene, best-selling author of The 48 Laws of Power. This is a "bible" for success in life and work based on a single principle: fear nothing. Containing intimate stories from 50 Cent's life on the streets and in the boardroom; his rise to worldwide fame and acclaim after the release of his album Get Rich or Die Tryin'.

  • "Better than expected"

    Overall

    The previous review put me off purchasing this, but I had seen the book and decided to give it a go.



    I was glad I did - I found the information very easy to understand and useful: it has helped me to see where I am going right in my two businesses as well as spot where I am going wrong. It is thought provoking and has helped me think about things - for this reason it has been a worthwhile purchase.



    The author does mention his website - but not too often and I did not find it particularly self-promoting or distracting. It is certainly far better than many of the charlatans that write books to promote the author's own websites, seminars and tapes.



    This book has substance and is enjoyable to listen to.

That world is dead. Now, the world's money is traded by computer code, inside black boxes in heavily guarded buildings. Even the experts entrusted with your cash don't know what's happening to it. And the very few who do aren't about to tell - because they're making a killing.

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

    Communication is essential in a healthy organization. But all too often when we interact with people - especially those who report to us - we simply tell them what we think they need to know. This shuts them down. To generate bold new ideas, to avoid disastrous mistakes, to develop agility and flexibility, we need to practice Humble Inquiry. Ed Schein defines Humble Inquiry as "the fine art of drawing someone out, of asking questions to which you do not know the answer, of building a relationship based on curiosity and interest in the other person."
