Summary

Motivated people advance further and faster in their careers, earn more money, are more productive, experience more satisfying relationships and are happier than the less-motivated people around them. But true motivation cannot be faked or forced.

Whether you are an individual seeking to realize your personal goals or a leader looking to motivate your team, Get Motivated! will show you how to overcome any obstacle, achieve any goal, and accelerate your success.

ok

This was a very enjoyable listen, read by the author. I don't know how well her theory actually works as it is a bit limited; I did try it out. I think it might be a bit of a way of her just cashing in. But the quality of the production was good.

Very dissapointed. More than just dissapointed.

Okay - I tried to listen to this book about 6 or 7 times and still couldn't finish it. Wish I listen to the reviews and ACT not to buy this book. This is my first ever review. Sad to say that this was very annoying, one tone voice, not realistic, very irritating, far fetch from real life... I'll stop there. Waste of money.

Out of date

If you're new to the self-help section of Barnes and Nobles, this is motivation lite...and an easy listen. Better to buy the book...

Her Voice Could Sour Milk

The content in this book is fine. But the author's voice and accent commits unspeakable atrocities on the English language, like pronouncing 'forward' as 'faux-PAUSE-word' or 'warm' as 'worm'.

Another narrator would have made listening a more pleasurable experience.

Huh?

Would you ever listen to anything by Tamara Lowe again?

No

Any additional comments?

I would have returned this if it were still eligible for return.(Although I'm not certain I paid for it--it could have been a freebie.) Uses a poorly-crafted test to assign some dubious categories of motivational type ("motivational DNA"), and then proceeds to give a bunch of generic advice, peppered with plenty of self-serving and self-aggrandizing anecdotes--a couple of which are pretty hard to believe--and some religious rhetoric. Add the grating accent and borderline-monotone delivery (Seriously, it's your own book, can't you read it with a little more pep?) and, well, I'm done. I'll admit I didn't get to the end. I'll also admit I fell asleep during part of it. So there may be some good parts I don't know about. But I still wouldn't recommend it.

Great program, highly recommend!

I don't know what the reviewer Amanda is thinking, I think Tamara's voice is great and it is not irritating at all. Good enunciation and delivery. Tamara is an exceptional speaker. This audiobook comes with lots and lots of bonuses you should take advantage of on her website. The book also has inspirational stories and gives you the tools and teaches the skills to Get Motivated! Highly recommend!

Didn't Motivate Me

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who is interested in the authors personal life story.

Would you be willing to try another book from Tamara Lowe? Why or why not?

Maybe a more updated book if it has more helpful info and less personal life stories.

How could the performance have been better?

More directions on how to get motivated.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Get Motivated!?

The references to web links that are no longer functioning.

Waste of money, even worse, waste of time

What would have made Get Motivated! better?

She started with explaining how her and her husband were looking for a business to get into. No other reason for starting a motivational lectures.

What was most disappointing about Tamara Lowe’s story?

She is in it for the money. No experience and no other motivation for getting into the lecture circuit.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Very disappointed. Angry that someone would sell this as a legit motivational content.

Any additional comments?

I want my 8hrs back.
