    I like how if you take a handful of these "success" type books you begin to see a pattern and some overlapping advice. That reinforces everyone's argument that success can be accomplished by certain steps. The unique thing about this book is that it focuses on the role of vision and motivation of your group (or yourself) to achieve success. Definitely a great listen!

    Great stuff from a sports perspective that can carry into every aspect of life. Author needs to read a bit more fluidly because its obvious he's reading which makes it tough to follow. The beginning takes a while to get used to his reading and alot of the first part feels like power quotes just tacked together, then it gels. The principles, like any of success, require work and consistency but its good to hear it in varying ways. Recommended for those looking into success principles based on WORK and making things come to you through action.

    Listened to the oriignal "uab" version several years ago and was hoping to hear it again. It's an excptional piece of work that inspires and motivates. Too bad this item only consist of 3 disks instead of 10.
