This really could have been a pamphlet

Really thought I was going to hear more words of wisdom from the Wizard but that was not the case. Yes you hear a little of what the Wiz says about each of his blocks then you hear a bunch of scripture and the actually passages. Not against the bible but that is not what I was expecting. The narrator gives each passage number as well. As famous as the Bible is I was not interested in hearing the narrator give how the passage fits the building block and the mortar. Made the book dry and less interesting.

Only gave it 3 stars because at least the blocks are given out with a bit of a reason as to why from the Wiz. Very tempted to have given it just 2 stars

Misleading book...

Would you try another book from John Wooden and Jay Carty and/or Sean Runnette?

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

His success principles are fantastic

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Story is well told.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Easy to listen to

Any additional comments?

I wasn't expecting to be ambushed with Christian propaganda when I purchased this book. I can handle a little but I was completely thrown off with statements like Woodens priciples have stood the test of time like the bible. Woodens may have stood the test of time but the bible has been proven many times to contain untruths and immoral statements about things like slavery and revenge. Comparing the 2 is off putting.
