Please disregard the negative reviews because:

Each poem now has a separate chapter with title etc

The incidental music is pleasing and certainly does not detract.

No collection is going to completely match the choices you would have chosen.

Spoiled by the voice of Piglet

No disrespect to Milne, the book or Bernard Cribbins but the voice of Piglet ruins this audiobook and means I cannot listen to it.

There is another old version that is perfect.

Peter Pan is a towering classic. It cannot be improved.

If someone attempted to improve it, filtering it through 2019 feminism & changing parts of it for absolutely no good reason would not be the way to go.

That route only leads to one thing: ruining a good opportunity for a new dramatization of this much loved masterpiece.

Please remove Barrie's name from this and indeed the title 'Peter Pan'.

No child should have to listen to Peter Pan for the first time thinking this bad adaptation is actually Peter Pan.

This is the first Audible review I have ever written and I feel compelled to do that in defence of this book and the author*. I nearly did not listen because of some the unhelpful reviews.

But please if you have any interest whatsoever in business, investing, money, building wealth or property - listen to this book. If you do not like it you can get your credit back from Audible - you have nothing to lose! And everything to gain.

I have just finished this book and the first thing I did was hit play and started again - it is that good. The book is packed with REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES. How many of the detractors have been through similar?

I am a self-made millionaire through business and property so could relate to much in the book. But I learned the hard (and expensive) way. In my day this type of book did not exist.

Every unhelpful review potentially puts off a young person from gaining life changing advice.

If I had listened to this book age say 20 and understood it I would be greatly wealthier today.

There is more helpful advice in this book than anything I learned on a 4 year business degree.

Please try it and write helpful reviews. If you do not know what you are talking about stay quiet and let others benefit.

Many young ambitious men get into bed with older men like Chris and are used in the process. All the stuff about Chris is A WARNING you can learn for nearly free. Some people do not recover from such experiences and their business career ends there. Also the detractors do not understand the concept of INVERSION i.e. learning from opposites. All the stuff about Chris was a lesson in 'how not do it' or put another way - do the opposite to Chris.

Re any so called promotion of Progressive, first of all so what, that is natural for an enthusiastic & proud businessman and secondly it is hardly noticeable.

Now enjoy the book! There are some great and hilarious laugh-out-loud bits in it.

Oh and the narrator - he is very good actually - very good indeed - ignore the naysayers.

And actually almost like a bonus at the end there are lots of useful hints and tips regarding money, some I did not know.

Finally thank-you to Mark for his honesty and generosity in writing this book and to Rob for helping.

*Disclaimer - my only connection is that I listened to one of Rob Moore’s books on Audible (Know More, Make More & Give More - which I recommend). I do not know these guys in any way shape or form.

-- More please of this kind of book, Audible! Maximum value & learning can be gained so easily with your excellent service thank-you --
