A Classic Well Done

This is a very good version of a classic story. There are other versions of this in Audible. But, be careful. Some of the narration on those versions is terrible! The narrator here - Kevin T. Norris - is quite good. He delivers it the speech clearly and keeps in the style of the time period of when it was originally given. And the message of the story is fantastic!

Stimulating story telling letting.

For those that enjoy a great set of stories letting us all know what we are missing...this is it. The author ties together real life situations into a thread showing how much opertunity we are missing...right in our own back yard. A great inspirational text.

This is deliciously Nutricious mind food !! <3

Practices are many Principles are few. Practices come and go. Principles are always true! ;-) Enjoy a piece of our past preserved in a wonderfully brief return to principles. A journey guided through a lecture and a collection of small stories. Collected and given by a man who truly lived his life generations past. His simply direct insight stored wonderfully in this small short book. For the enjoyment of you and generations to come. I highly recommend this mental voyage.

I listen to this daily!!!!

I love this short book! I really do listen to this daily...once in the wee hours of the morning to set my mood/intent for the day and usually again at night as I drift off to sleep so the message is delivered directly to my subconscious.

I can't get enough of this book and the inspiring message it holds... I can see how I'm surrounded by my acres of diamonds and I've begun to take action on it!!!

The limitless of abundance is truly within me and around me, it's not over there or down yonder beyond my reach, it's here now in my hands, my thoughts, my heart, and creativity!!!

I recommend this book for Y O U!!! If you're reading this review you're obviously interested in this book - get it! The message is still pertinent for today!!!0

Classic, always understand what's in front of you

always listen to what people want or need.. a opportunity may be right in front of you so dont miss it and your value is in how you serve others sincerely not in what benefitd you.. good principle

Acres of Diamonds Rocks

So many hidden gems hidden between the lines and in the pauses. When I began listening I was tired with my perceived load of work. Towards the middle I had brightened my thoughts and mood. By the end, I was enthusiastic to carry on and persevere.
