Useful tips that can be implemented by nearly everyone. I didn't enjoy the narrator's voice as much as I had hoped I would, I found it robotic and not very relaxing to listen to. Probably the kind of book best owned as a paperback in order to underline and revisit personal notes made.
This book says nothing new and provides little more than a simple to-do list for a morning routine. The list is little more than a wish list of 'what' to do, missing the 'why' and missing the 'how'. Although many of the habits are intuitively sensible, there is no research, no science, no reality. Finally, to say something as incorrect and ridiculous as 'successful people don't sit around and get depressed' is just plain wrong .... like so much else in this thinly veiled advertorial piece for CPAs.
"It's a pitch. Pushing his seminar in every chapter"
Every chapter begins with a different tragic, sap story and ends with how someone invited them to the "Rich Habits" seminar and changed their life. The only thing you will get from this book is that you need to go to his seminar, otherwise there is no value.
He could have tried to offer some real practical or inherent value in some way, I spent my money and even worse, my time, listening to what ended up providing no value whatsoever. I kept reading thinking it would redeem itself at the end but it doesn't.
Maybe. I didn't have a problem with the narrator.
It tugs at your heart strings a little with the stories. A father losing his wife to cancer and having to raise the children on his own, unfortunately, it ends with him getting invited to this seminar and magically turning it all around.
A fine display of someone filling the internet with useless content and wasting peoples time with a book that will only benefit the author. If you want to pitch someone, don't try to fool them by doing it this way. There are far more creative ways to gather leads as an digital marketer.
"It can be made into a nice blog post"
Make a column for your bad habits and another column of your good habits. Ex) I watch too much TV, I will only watch 1 hr of TV weekly or daily. The idea is to build positive habits by replacing bad habits with good ones.
Improve everyday, build on knowledge of your industry daily, make goals, take care of health, don't overindulge in eating, be balanced. Do not procrastinate, use incantations, save 10% income, build relationships without expecting anything in return.
That is the summary of the book.
"One chapter is good"
The stories were stupid, but the one chapter was good. If you listen to that one chapter it's okay.
"Good tips, but..."
Not that good. I have read about it online and have seen statistics. He could have explained and really teach us to do things. I thought I'd love it. But I barely liked.
"A great little book"
Ten solid points that, if followed, will improve your life. Bought it on sale!
Examples help drive home the points. Buy this book, especially when it's on sale.
This book can change your life in many ways
The principles mentioned in this book are life changer and be applied on our daily life.
Added to my every year library to keep me going in the direction few wish to travel.
Great book Easy to understand. Lots of value here. Really enjoyed listening and probably will listen again.
"goofy format, excellent tips"
Well worth the read. I am putting this to work right now and loving it.
The best book ever! It should be called The Habits to Make You Successful in Life, Healthy and Wealthy!
