Most Helpful

A re-hash of the original '7 Habits' !

What made the experience of listening to The ONE Thing the most enjoyable?

Well structured.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The ONE Thing?

It focuses on 'one thing'

What about Timothy Miller and Claire Hamilton ’s performance did you like?

Yes. Easy to listen to, although Claire Hamilton's accent is a little too 'Cheesy American' for this Englishman.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Probably not. But possible.

Any additional comments?

This is a rather shameless duplication and re-hash of 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People'. If you have read '7 Habits' then it's an OK revision of the principles, stated slightly differently. If you haven't. forget this and read '7 Habits of Highly Effective People' by Dr Stephen Covey. It is much better.

They refer to several studies and findings from other books on the same subjects, but in the audiobook they don't refer to the studies or credit other authors. Whereas 'The Power of Habit' by Charles Duhigg addresses this subtopic of the power of Habits in much more detail and complete with properly referenced source material.

Perhaps I should nick a bit from all the authors I have read and re-publish it under a catchy name!

Yes.Is it a book I’ve gone back to in order to check I really get the ideas and concepts so I can apply them? Yes.Is it a book I keep to hand on my mobile, where space is at a premium, so I can re-listen as and when? Yes.Finally, is it a book that has brought insights and moved me forward? Yes.Comments...Stick with it - I found it was literally 2 hrs in before it really got going. I have changed my goal setting system based on insights from this book. The narration is a touch irritating and the "musac" jingle but don't that put you off.
