What would have made No Excuses! better?
if it wasn't basically a jazzed up copy of Goals! I was pleased with his goals book and thought this one would help.
it had the same questions as goals and I feel ripped off. Buy one or the other don't buy both, you'll regret it.

Michelle, not Steve, Carver: I absolutely loved this book! I've probably listened to it to it 3 or 4 times already. It's very fast moving and the ideas are very well organized. I did not buy this book to find a never-before-heard of secret to self-discipline and so hearing familiar thoughts and ideas was in no way a disappointment to me. Rather I'd hoped to find motivational encouragement to put into practice those ideas I know to be true about achieving greatness in life and this book absolutely delivers! I'll definitely be listening to this book many more times. I honestly find myself already doing hard things that I would rather procrastinate and that is the motivation I hoped to find in this book. Two thumbs up!

I was patient, I waited until near the end but Brian - just adding 'Self-Discipline and " to a chapter heading on things you've written about before (repeatedly) doesn't make it a book about self-discipline. I've read widely in this area (Covey, Robbins, Ziglar, Rohn, Canfield) and 1) there's not an original thought here and 2) I was looking on advice about self-discipline and there really wasn't any. Just 'Self Discipline and ..... business, wealth, work, time management. In effect, chapters about those subjects with Self-Discipline added to the title but little actual advice on SD!
You're a good writer but you're getting repretitive. And stop pausing after 'the' or 'and' - it sounds like you've forgotten what you're going to say.
In a nutshell, the advice is good but it is NOT what the title promises. Buy something cheaper.

It is not easy to criticise Brian Tracy as his work is generally outstanding and this audiobook does contain a few gems, BUT there is nothing new. It is all his old work over many years simply preceded by a paragraph on how it takes self discipline to achieve ( sales, money, time management etc etc). Having several of his other books, I regret buying this one.

Didn't like him swallowing often. Great concepts. Didn't enjoy sales chapter & some others. Main concepts are good.
