This classic motivational parable (over 500,000 copies sold worldwide) shows you how to make your own opportunities in life. Ever since its first printing in 1921, The Go-Getter has inspired employees and entrepreneurs to take initiative, increase their productivity, and excel against the odds. In this audiobook, Bill Peck, a war veteran and double amputee, not only fights to find employment, but continually proves himself more than competent at the many difficult tests that are thrown his way.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I didn't get past chapter 4 so couldn't tell you. I was listening to this book with my children in the car as I like them to listen to motivational stuff but the last thing I expected were swear words coming out.
Is there any reason why you need to swear in the book?

Very disappointed.

What will your next listen be?

The Magic of thinking Big

How did the narrator detract from the book?

SWEARING is never necessary. That is not very motivating

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not that I can remember.

Any additional comments?

I would like to return this book but apparently, I can't so I'm stuck with it.

All of us have what it takes to make it in today's competitive and changing world. You may have doubted your ability to get the job done in the past, but something else may have been getting in the way of your success. The key to ultimate achievement has very little to do with your education or skill level. The secret to accomplishing great things is simple: Find and pursue the kind of work you are meant to do - your "purpose."

Bought this for my sons. I enjoyed it more than them because of the memories it brought back when I used to read it as a kid myself.

"When people gladly sacrifice their time or comfort or home, it is obvious that they trust in the promises of God. Why is it that the story of someone who has actually done what Jesus commands resonates deeply with us, but we then assume we could never do anything so radical or intense? Or why do we call it radical when, to Jesus, it is simply the way it is? The way it should be?"

Ezeulu is worshipped by the six villages of Umuaro. But he is beginning to find his authority increasingly under threat. Yet he still feels he must be untouchable - surely he is an arrow in the bow of his God? Armed with this belief, he is prepared to lead his people, even if it means destruction and annihilation. Yet the people will not be so easily dominated.

Bedtime Story

My children love listening to stories when they go to be and now I have started playing them Audible books at night.

As a Nigerian living in England with English children, I always tell them stories about Nigeria however, since I started playing them this story, they love it and look forward to hearing it every night.

The richness of words and imagery is fantastic and we all love to listen to it.

I plan to get more Chinua books which I grew up reading as a kid and now my children can also enjoy.
