    "5 out 5"
    Any additional comments?

    This is my 5 question system for appraising business and management books. It isn't perfect but it works for me, I hope you find it useful...
    Have I incorporated in my business or how I run my business any learnings from this book? Yes.Did feel I wa nted to understand really understand the book in depth, make notes and apply the content? Yes.Is it a book I’ve gone back to in order to check I really get the ideas and concepts so I can apply them? Yes.Is it a book I keep to hand on my mobile, where space is at a premium, so I can re-listen as and when? Yes.Finally, is it a book that has brought insights and moved me forward? Yes.Comments...Stick with it - I found it was literally 2 hrs in before it really got going. I have changed my goal setting system based on insights from this book. The narration is a touch irritating and the "musac" jingle but don't that put you off.

    "Interesting, educational and a great listen!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The ONE Thing to be better than the print version?

    I found the audio edition much more engaging than reading a print version, it kept me interested from start to finish!


    What does Timothy Miller and Claire Hamilton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    They kept me interested and made the stories flow nicely!

    Story
    "A re-hash of the original '7 Habits' !"
    What made the experience of listening to The ONE Thing the most enjoyable?

    Well structured.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The ONE Thing?

    It focuses on 'one thing'


    What about Timothy Miller and Claire Hamilton ’s performance did you like?

    Yes. Easy to listen to, although Claire Hamilton's accent is a little too 'Cheesy American' for this Englishman.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Probably not. But possible.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a rather shameless duplication and re-hash of 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People'. If you have read '7 Habits' then it's an OK revision of the principles, stated slightly differently. If you haven't. forget this and read '7 Habits of Highly Effective People' by Dr Stephen Covey. It is much better.

    They refer to several studies and findings from other books on the same subjects, but in the audiobook they don't refer to the studies or credit other authors. Whereas 'The Power of Habit' by Charles Duhigg addresses this subtopic of the power of Habits in much more detail and complete with properly referenced source material.

    Perhaps I should nick a bit from all the authors I have read and re-publish it under a catchy name!

    "Excellent book"

    At first I thought how can you write so much about 1 thing. This really has got me focused and highly productive. It's helped me focus on what matters most in the day, so the rest of the day is clear. Highly recommended

    "Best towards the end. Overall a great book"

    It could have been short. Gets a little monotonous in the middle. The beggining is enlightening ofcourse. It gets really good and inspiring towards the end. I was considering not finishing the book in the middle. But really glad I finished it.

    I love the book. I finished it in 2 days. What's the one thing I can do to make everything else easier or unnecessary? I probably have to listen to the book on a regular basis when I get lost in the future.

    Breaks down how to simplify to become successful in what ever your endeavours are. Often the answer is right there in front of us but without clarity it just gets overseen.
