NOT unabridged!

I was disappointed to find out that this is NOT the unabridged version of "the richest man in Babylon". I have read this book before and wanted to get an audio version. This book is not by the Napoleon Hill foundation, but George S. Clason, the author of the Magic Story is not mentioned either, which I find disrespectful. I found the information given in the book description to be misleading because of the huge abbreviation and no credit given to the actual authors. However I did enjoy the summary made by the Napoleon Hill foundation at the end of each story.

Two Classic Parables, By: Napoleon Hill Foundation

A great listen and quick reminder of old Classics. If you want a quick pick me up as to why you are doing what you are doing to become healthy, wealthy, and wise, this is a good Audio book, condensed for convenience. Only for those who believe in themselves, or are ready to believe in themselves.

A rich , thoughtful drama which is full of wisdom. I first heard this story as a child over thirty years ago and it was as influential then as it is now. I listen to it over and over again.

Simply #Success in a nutshell

I really liked this book.

Both stories are so simple yet captivating and with so much information and truth to it.

I would recommend everyone to read it, at least a couple of times, and make notes. I think this book and material should be mandatory at schools, and discussed in forums.

This version even has a summary of notes at the end, so what else could you ask for.

Buy it and read/listen to it NOW!
