Best Valued Audiobook I've Bought

This is by far the best value I've gotten on Audible out of over 60 non-fiction/self-help audiobooks so far. I really liked getting the snapshots of the selected success books and found the narrator's delivery more than adequate to do the job. At first I thought I would just listen to this audiobook as a shortcut to understanding, sort of like reading Cliffnotes. However, I am incredibly inspired to delve into some of these works, as the author does occassionally point out a 15-20 minute synopsis leaves out some important material. I would say this is a way to "test-drive" some of the books before buying, and hopefully you will come to know which ones suit your needs.

worth the money

The 50 success classics as well as the 50 self-help classics and the 50 psychology classics are all worthwhile for the reader who wants a quality overview of the subjects. I have all 3 in audio and later bought the 50 self-help classics in print for a refferance in my book collection.

I found that Tom Butler-Bowden included a good balance of personal observations along with the core details and excerpts from the individual books covered without injecting an overt personal bias. These books have increased my reading list, but with a clarity and focus to read the books that most interest me. These books are not just a collection of excerpts from others' writings. They include background information on the authors and the times and circumstances surrounding the writings. These books are entertaining and informative by themselves; but I think anyone who truly has an interest in their subject matter will find them to be useful resources as well as shortcuts to a greater understanding of the subjects.

I highly recommend these books in both their printed and audio forms. The audio versions are read by professional narrators with engaging voices that add to the pleasure of the listening experience. I can't recommend these books enough for anyone interested in learning more of the human experience through the insight from some of the greatest minds.

Top Stuff

Rather than filling your mind with bad news from Newspapers, learn from the great minds that have come before us and use their knowledge to become a better person. This is an inspiring book of summaries of other books. I highly recommend it to everyone.

A WARNING......

My warning is this: if you listen to this book, you are going to buy a lot more success books, as you become interested in the ideas of authors through the years.
It is a very good precis of the key books in the field, so if you are new to the literature, this is a good way to dip a toe in. If you are familiar with some of the works, i think that you will be prompted to check out some of the titles outlined.
You have been warned.
