Most people are already familiar with all of the author's 100 suggestions. Nonetheless, the brief, to-the-point entries serve as excellent reminders of ideas worth remembering, especially when you need inspiration to start or finish something, or to fine tune your attitude toward optimism.
Reading it is a little like having a good, wise friend telling you what you need to hear, without going overboard or beating the point to death.
One last thing: I heard the CD by the same name BEFORE I bought the printed book. The CD is even better in part because the author reads it well. So, the printed book is a great companion to the CD--and it surprises me to say this since I normally like self-help CD's even less than I like self-help books.
It will give you that kick in the "butt"! push that you need for yourself! and make you see and feel....that whatever! it may be...you can! do it! and you can!...get threw it!.....
Mr.Chandler is a God send the way his words make you finally see what was right there in front of you allll the time!....you will not regret getting this book...and I know like me...you will thank! Mr Chandler....also he has other books that are powerful in there own right...."50 ways to create great! relationship"(How to Stop taking and start Giving) ....and the other book is...."Reinventing Yourself".....you will be glad you picked up any! of his books.
On the positive side, the content is good, and Mr. Chandler does a reasonable job covering the broad topic of motivation.
The negatives, however, outweigh the positives. The two reasons I am less than satisfied are as follows:
1.) The audio-book is read by the author in his monotonous low droning baritone. I found it nearly impossible to sustain my focus on his hypnotic reading any longer than five minutes, which is pretty sad for a "motivation" themed book! At times, I wondered if Mr. Chandler were about to fall asleep himself. (Imagine Eeyore reading a book to you on "motivation.") What is interesting, is that at one point in the CD, Mr. Chandler boasts about his great speaking voice. If his CD was intended to induce a hypnotic trance, then I might agree with him.
2.) This audio-book is a superficial survey of some basic thoughts on motivation. I was hoping for more in-depth coverage of motivation, but what can you expect from two CDs and a few hours of content?
Suggestion: Before purchasing, please listen to the audio-sample of the book on the Amazon site. If you can make it through the entire ~5 minute sample, then it might be worth purchasing the book.
