I like this book but...the hearing someone else in the background is anoying. In the Science of Getting Rich Section there is a second person in the back groung who sighs very loudly, or can be heard whispering to someone in the background. This happens 4 times during the Narraters reading. Especially noticable while wearing headphones.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
While the material is superb and potentially life changing, this performance is horrible! The narrator sounds like a kid in high school, called on in class to read material he is obviously unfamiliar with. He mispronounces words constantly, pauses at the end of the writing on the page rather than where punctuation indicates, he emphasizes the wrong words in the sentences, and clearly has no understanding of, nor any familiarity with, the material. I will avoid this narrator in the future whenever possible.
What other book might you compare Science of Getting Rich Trilogy to and why?
"The Science Of Getting Rich" is similar to Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" and T.Harv Eker's "Millionaire Mind" materials. Many of the principles overlap or mirror exactly. I recommend reading & listening to them all. Each presents the material in a slightly different way, and by familiarizing yourself with all of them, you will gain greater understanding and insight into the ideas within.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
THIS PERFORMANCE IS HORRIBLE! The narrator sounds like a kid in high school, called on in class to read material he is obviously unfamiliar with. His reading is mechanical and word by word, rather than thought by thought. He frequently mispronounces words which he clearly does not understand, he pauses at the end of the page rather than where punctuation indicates, he emphasizes the wrong words in the sentences, and clearly has no understanding of, nor any familiarity with, the material. He misses idioms and quotes, and clearly does not understand what they are, or why they are there. I will avoid this narrator in the future whenever possible and recommend that everyone else do the same.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Yes! Absolutely. It would be like "The Secret." - As long as this "narrator" was not involved in it, it would be great!
Any additional comments?
Can I get my money back, and buy a different version? Please?

What disappointed you about Science of Getting Rich Trilogy?
This book is not at all scientific, and asks readers to adopt the creed:<br/><br/>"There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.<br/>A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imagined by the thought.<br/><br/>A person can form things in this thought, and by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created."
Has Science of Getting Rich Trilogy put you off other books in this genre?
Would you be willing to try another one of Core Media Productions’s performances?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Science of Getting Rich Trilogy?
What made the experience of listening to Science of Getting Rich Trilogy the most enjoyable?
The book is great; that's why it's a timeless classic. However, the quality of the recording is extremely poor, and the narrator sounds like he wants to kill himself. I would recommend choosing a different recording.
