AWFUL Narration!

I have read the book and I thought buying the audio book would be a great way to affirm and remind myself of the valuable insights presented in the book. What a mistake that was. The narration is dreadful!! It sounds like an infomercial and a train wreck. There is no punctuation and no inflection. I could not get past the first two chapters (and even that took a lot of patience and tolerance).

The content is great but save yourself an audio credit and just buy the book. I don't usually post reviews but I feel so cheated by this book/narration that I needed to vent!! So there! :)

One of those "just believe in yourself" books

Hill's thesis is essentially that planning and determination lead one to success. That's it, repeated a thousand times.

The most interesting aspect of the book is the degree to which subsequent self-help literature is a copy of this general formula: (1) Spend dozens of pages/minutes promising the reader success of they can just finish the book and follow the formula, (2) Repeat the word "wealth" again and again, (3) Propose a simple solution that doesn't involve difficult work, additional education, careful research, etc... just change your attitude and voila! (4) Throw in a few anecdotal stories of cherry-picked people whose can-do attitudes alone led them to great riches with no help at all from luck or connections.

Hill spices up his bland soup with 1930s conservative politics, railing against union members and the hungry people in bread lines for "wanting something for nothing" and inviting them to leave the U.S. How stagnant is our politics that nothing has changed in 80 years?

In both politics and self-help, Hill set the template that would be replicated for decades across the bookshelves of those who think the line between success and failure is simply attitude (which can be learned through self-help books, of course). This book is for those who feel the need to keep reading because they just can't make the recipie work in their own kitchen.

Great book - reader though.....

Great book - in fact excellent
I did think that the reader sounded like an infomercial guy - normally long books do not take me a month to read - maybe a week- I just had to keep taking long breaks with this salesman because the way he spoke was hurting concentration
Buy the book but the way they directed Jason McCoy to narrate didn't work for me - if I had to do it again I would get a different audio version

Classic book, difficult to listen to ...

This book is a classic with tons of great info. It's a must-read for anyone interested in the topic.

I dont recommend the audio, however, for two main reasons: 1) The narrator is in a hurry, often running thoughts, sentences, and subheadings together without a breath in between. 2) This book is filled with lists that require action. Those can't be utilized easily through audio.

Also, the narrator mispronounces several words horribly and seems to be straining to project his voice (versus allowing the microphone to do the work), leading to an unnecessary, tense tone.

Audio could be better quality

The narration was great, yet the quality of the playback could have been better. It felt as if the sampling was low quality.

It should be named "Think and Grow Mentally"!!!!

This book is a must read for everyone, it should be taught in school. It should be required before anyone gets employed....seriously I have read this over and over. I am now in a mastermind group on Think and Grow Rich.

Too Many Narration Errors

I am less than twenty minutes into this recording, and the narrator has already mispronounced simple words like preface and clergyman. Really?
