Summary

A series of books to give inspiration and opportunity to those middle-class persons who are not poor enough for charity, nor rich enough to afford things themselves. The author intended to inspire, with the kind of inspiration that makes a man go out and create his own opportunity. Yours is the world and everything in it!

Not the full version.

If you want the original edition first published in 1925 in audio . This is not the one.
It clamis to be but, It misses key information out.

Performance Ruins Content

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The book I strongly recommend. Actually after enjoying the abridged version so much I was looking for the unabridged one, but Jason McCoy's performance makes it look like a completely different material: not a good one. This reading of the book I DO NOT recommend.

How could the performance have been better?

It needs to be read a lot slower. You are not even able to recognize when he is reading a title or starting a new chapter.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money on this version. It really doesn't honor the contents of the book, which are truly amazing.

Never mind the voice - just listen to the material

Would you listen to The Secret of the Ages again? Why?

Yes - great material.

What other book might you compare The Secret of the Ages to and why?

Your Invisible Power - Genevieve Behrend - both books from the 'New Thought' movement.

What didn’t you like about Jason McCoy’s performance?

Too fast - too intense - too 'full on' - I prefer to 'bask' in the material rather than have it flung at me!!!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No

Does the narrator know how to read punctuation?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I own a printed version of this book so I thought it would be nice to get this audio version. However, the narrator's voice and reading pace spoil everything. No pause marked on commas, full stops, change of paragraphs or chapters... Why the hurry? Headache guaranteed within 10 mns of listening. Unbearable.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jason McCoy’s performances?

Heck no !

Fantastic ... it all made perfect sense

If you have watched "The Secret" and weren't that impressed with the Hollywood style interpretation of the principles of life, you will enjoy this no-nonsense explanation of all aspects of life. Excellent!

THE BOMB!!! A must for every library!

The ideas, concepts and belief system of the author are DYNAMIC and life-changing. If I'd known about the treasure 10-years ago, my life would've been very different. But, I'm grateful to have discovered it when I did. If you like THE SECRET....this is for you. I consider Robert Collier one of the Founding Fathers of THE GREAT SECRET!

Great book, less than satisfying performance

Collier's book is a classic of self-help/improvement literature. Unfortunately, it doesn't get the quality reading it deserves. Mr. McCoy butchers names, particularly non-English ones. His reading style is quick and even sloppy. One example is an instance where he substitutes "road" for "round." I tried to put up with this reading for as long as I could but ultimately had to abandon it. It's a pity. This text deserves better.

This book changed my thinking!

Any additional comments?

This book is so amazing. It explains how your mind works and how everything is connected. I have read many books on the subconscious mind and the universe, but none of them come close to the knowledge that this book shares. This book will change your life! It is an intelligently written book on how to navigate life and how the universe works.
