Mostly common sense, but worth every penny

Would you consider the audio edition of The Luck Factor to be better than the print version?

I can listen to it while driving to reinforce some of the topics. There's always something I missed; some subtle point that reinforces a topic that I find useful.
This is not so much about 'luck' per se, but being able to take advantage of favorable actions (by being open to events and outgoing in personality) and learning to trust your judgement in avoiding unfavorable events and people. Some readers may find a couple of suggestions to be "woo" but they work for me.

What did you like best about this story?

It reinforces things that you'd regard as common sense, until you put it all together. Then it becomes strongly motivational. I've used the techniques and found them very useful. Nota bene: this is not the kind of luck that will win the lottery. It's the kind of luck that has the one person at a 400 person conference who your organization needs to talk to, and who has no idea who you are, sits next to you at the luncheon and you are able to take advantage of it. Part of that is just sheer luck in his choice of seat, and the other is an ability to make a connection when the lucky opportunity happens.

What does Peter Noble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nicely read.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's not that kind of book. It's the kind where you want to go back and listen to a chapter again.

Any additional comments?

When I first listened to this book I thought the 'unlucky' people were some of the stupidest losers on the face of the earth. Then I realized they must have been selected to make the reader feel superior to them and to reinforce how the techniques can help even people who are congenitally dense.

Wiseman's 'As If' book is also very useful.

Rings True

Full of valuable information that is not only useful, but inspirational. it's so good to be able to see why some aspects of my life have been 'lucky' while other aspects 'unlucky'. The book really makes sense.
