An interesting listen. The content of the book is interesting, detailed and comprehensive. The case studies used in the piece are fantastic and in terms of gaining value from the book I have already been able to apply some of the techniques in my day job.



However, the only negative would be the delivery of the content. This audio is not something that you will look forward to listening to.. although you can see the benefit in listening to the book. It is similar to a child being force fed their greens. In the sense you know that their may be some benefit in listening to the audio but you would rather eat sweets or watch TV in my case.



It is worth a credit however, sample the audio before you purchase as the delivery may not suit.

Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."

This book is for you if you are starting your journey in financial education.



The audio is of a high standard but most importantly the narrative offers a personable friendly approach.



Although the subject matter maybe a bit dry the author and narrator have created a piece of work that will keep you engaged, entertained and enthused during your listen and weeks after.



A great listen.



At the very least add it to your wish list.

Longlisted for the Audiobook Download of the Year, 2007.
It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

A great listen. Perfect if you are in need of motivation and improved self confidence.

This audio book has encouraged me to develop my skills and most importantly it has made me act and make a change in my life.

This book is not the finished article and you will be left wanting more, but I feel that just goes to show how good a piece of work the audio book is.

I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone whom is interested in personal development.

A great read.

Fully recommended to anyone aspiring to move up the corporate ladder.

Jonathan Perks's everyday life examples really bring a personal touch to everyday truths. Additionally, the colourful examples in the audio book make the listen both entertaining and informative.

Well worth purchasing.
