The readers monotone voice is truly boring and the sound of the smoke detector constantly chirping due to low battery level is annoying!! The book seems like it's a constant cliche anfter cliche.
Narrator was boring but the meaning behind the book was good
amazing, inspiring and knowledge fulfillment. a must listen.
I think it's full of powerful information
I kind of liked the book . Maybe if I read it instead of listening to it might work best for me
A very enlightening book but a little old.
The narrator is a bit monotone but the information kept me listening.
Really really good book , definitely worth listing to it!
I downloaded this in error as I thought it may be a scientific study or discussion on what constitutes consciousness. It is actually a self help book on the power of conscious action and will.
However, not to be deterred, I listened to a couple of hours anyway. I found much of the authors manner distinctly hard to swallow. statements such as "If you have not achieved this, you have wasted your life" are, at the very least, provocative. I might counter that this only fits if your personal drivers are very well aligned with the author's. Personally, I'm not sure mine are.
Digesting the poem 'If' by Rudyard Kipling could be a faster way to obtain the life lessons offered in this text.
However, I cannot give this 1 star as a review, there is unquestionably some wisdom and some good intent in the authors attempts to convey how a man (not a women 'of course') should conduct himself.
The narrator too was a bit dry, not that I can particularly blame her. In her position I'd have been hard pushed not to add some suggestive 'huffs' at some of the advices given.
This book is waste of time. Full of cliche. Outdated.
Not helpful to my needs
I loved it! For those whos interested in self improvement its a great book, it helps in developing stronger mind set.
Great book and great narrator
Such a inspirational book, must listen again.
Not keen on the religious references, but after that quite useful.
great Book, great narrator
Great info shared by the writer and will do the exercises. Being a women I found the use of him, he of putting for parts of the book and the referral to god gives the book religious overtones.
Otherwise great audiobook.
Very helpful and inspiring. I enjoyed listening to this book while working and found it very helpful.
Great book! It deserved to be listened to again.
Nice and useful
Great read and useful exercises. Also a good book to listen to on a long drive.
Excellent book worth listening to, maybe even twice:)
What a great book! I imagine that I will be having another listen to this in a few weeks.
Interesting with some salient points, aimed at business people in the main but I would recommend it immensely to anyone who wishes to benefit themselves. However,it was narrated in a somewhat sombre tone with little expression.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. Will recommend to those who like to improve their focus level, achievements and quality of life. Thank you, Mr. William Walker Atkinson!
I am so glad I found this book .. Thanks a lot .. I will definitely recommend this .. And it's free wow
One the best self-help guides that I've ever experienced; very practical and full of good tips & exercises.
Anyone that is looking to improve their mental skills should def give this a listen.
Even more amazing to me is that it was originally written in 1877.
thanks Author, reader and all peopl wh contribute to this work..
Best book I've ever come across. I will recommend this to as many people as I can. It shines a light on one of the major and essential areas of life, which is self-awareness and provides actionable exercises to help readers/listeners achieve their goals within the realm of concentration.
Really good book. It really emphasizes the power we all have at improving our focus and concentration. Best of all, I got this book while it was free, and have to say I'm so happy I found it
Awesome and I like this book so much. It gives me inspiration
Awesome book with many learnable devices..I would like to see it incorporated into elementary and middle school education. You are never too young or too old to practice concentration mastery.
This without a doubt has become one of my top favorites of all time. So glad I found it!!
Slow. Reads like a bible. Agree with other reviewers.
A must listen. Knowledge and Value packed.
The book was pretty good. It gave lessons on the means of concentration. It had a mix of opinions and facts that smoothly correlate.
Couldn’t get past chapter one the narrator was such a monotone bore.
The Author has a great deal of knowledge and given a lot of deep thought in writing this book. This book should be a 5 star because of the great wisdom for success that it holds. I did listen to it at 1.75 speed.
it a great book
This is the best book I have ever listened to.
Perfect explanation of the brain power .Excersises are excellent.
A bit sexist but valuable in content , if one can dig through the outdated misogynistic /bigoted sentences and just pick up the advices and exercises
this book can be summed up to pretty much one line, which is this: Focus on what you are doing for the moment to get the best results! If that is relationships, focus on the person you are with with full attention. If it is your business, then focus on that. If it is sleep, then focus on that. If it's ideas for everything in life, then find a quiet place and focus on that! Whatever you are doing in life at any given time, focus on that one thing to find success!
very annoying voice
I didn’t finish - couldn’t concentrate on it.
Heavy going.Rather conceited and disrespectful to the listener.
I enjoyed this book quite a lot and will re-read it often as the information is useful and pertinent in everyday dealings with life.
The narrator is pleasant, however, there are many times when I wished for some emotion or slight break between sentences or paragraphs for my brain to have a second to digest important materials or recognize a shift in topic.
Worth a listen, I learnt a lot from this book.
Very good educational and great for own mentally control set
Absolutely love it I need more
Very helpful 4 to be confident.
Good info! Except, the few Biblical references weren't exact.
enjoyed this book. I will need to listen to it again though to absorb more
Was some helpful information I liked this book and I’ll try out some of the steps to better my concentration good listen overall
The title is deceiving. The message is that if you laugh, sing, dance, drink strong drink, eat stimulating food, and thereby develop your emotions, you will lack the power of concentration. And if you can concentrate it will only sporadically.
The narrative is monotone and slow with no emotion or heart. Save yourself the trouble, do not read this book!
wonderful book with good narration.
enjoy book l into that way of thinking
really enjoy it makes sense
worth the time to listen
