Brian Tracy gets right to the point here again. Although in some ways the ideas in this program are not extremely profound, their simplicity and directness make them valuable indeed.

Great... A must for fans Wayne Dyer and Dale Carnegie. Probably the best mix of work life and psychology.

Poor read

Written by Bill on February 12th, 2005

  • Book Rating: 1/5

Brian Tracy read this book so fast, that I barely had time to digest anything. It was like he was getting paid by how fast he could read the text. Not only that, but his sentences were pretty poor. In one sentence he would use the word "control" 5 times. The concepts aren't bad, but the poor read and poor sentence structures had me turning the CD off 3/4 of the way through the first CD.
