This is old school, things have moved on!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Had this book provided some grounding and research as to why the author was suggesting to do the things he did then it would have been parallel with many more contemporary offerings. More substance would have improved this read immeasurably.

What was most disappointing about David J. Schwartz’s story?

A talk at you approach of old school American, motivational "positive mental attitude." When there are such great books around about the psychology of how our mind works and how to control, ("The Chimp Paradox" by Steve Peters for example) this left me cold as it just felt like a bunch of buzz words and nothing more

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was okay, fairly easy to listen to but given the type of book it was the content which was at fault more than the narrator.

What character would you cut from The Magic of Thinking Big?


Any additional comments?

It just feels as though this book is now out of date. Research and evidence is what is required. Its a big title but little more. A real shame!
