Wise words, but nothing new and far too repetitive

I am by no means someone to judge Andrew Carnegie, But i felt that not much new was told in the book. Having said that his explanations was excellent for some of the principles.
Good performance by the two narrators.

Good but a bit outdated

General ideas are very good, but this book is very old and some concepts no longer fit in XXI century (e.g. view on women and career)

Best audiobook so far

Where does The Wisdom of Success rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very well structured, no fluff and to the point. Other books seem to have a lot of filler, everything in this is rich in information.

What other book might you compare The Wisdom of Success to and why?

If you have read Think and grow rich (you should) this is a must read as well.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

There is a structure to success or at least a way to maximize your chances of it. We live on emotions. There are 7 positive and 7 negative. Try to stay away from the negative ones and have the positive ones as much as possible.

Must have

This book is a must have in your collection if you plan on becoming an entrepreneur in any line of business. Hearing the voice of Andrew Carnegie himself is very inspirational as well as demanding ones attention. With the extensive breakdown of each of these Laws. This book must be heard first before anything else ever read.

Timeless Wisdom

This book should be read by any person aspiring to become the best version of themselves. It provides a framework for the mental attitude, thought patterns and preconditions necessary to lead a truly prosperous and fulfilling life. Perhaps one of the top 3 business books I have ever read/listened to.

Now I know how it started

I'm glad to know, how Think and Grow Rich started, This audio will go deeper or I should say it can be a companion with the book.
It's a must have.

Worth the read

It's a lengthy listen but worth it.
A lot of information that needs to be digested and best if you make some notes.

I will recommend this book.
