Truly motivating and a real pleasure to listen

Listening to the voices of Jack Canfield and Mark Hansen was a real pleasure. A truly inspiring and motivating book and I would say - it really touches you deeper when you are listening to it in comparison to reading. And it is actually a very nice bonus that there are two motivation books (Alladin Factor and Dare to Win) included in one audiobook. Very many thanks indeed and really recommended.

Just a minor comment for future improvements - would probably be great to see the names of the chapters provided in the audiobook format.

Too Pantomime - Sorry Jack!

Would you try another book written by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen or narrated by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen ?

First of all I love Jack Canfield and avidly tune into various videos. Unfortunately though I found the first book - Aladdin Factor far too pantomine in its delivery. The messages are good but the Aladdin voice was irritating in the extreme and I found the book a little monotonous. 'Dare to Win' was significantly better fortunately.

Has A Healthy Dose of Motivation: 'The Aladdin Factor' and 'Dare to Win' put you off other books in this genre?

Not at all, Jack Canfield is one of my favourite motivational speakers but the Aladdin Factor just didn't do him justice at all, far too gimmicky.

What aspect of Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen ’s performance might you have changed?

I found myself wanting to skip chapters and finding parts of the book very repetitive. Perhaps that's because I listened all in one sitting (a very long car journey), but I wouldn't rush back to reread them. Canfield has a lot of excellent material, I think these are on the fringes of this.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Healthy Dose of Motivation: 'The Aladdin Factor' and 'Dare to Win'?

Aladdin! While the analogy works ok to get the point across, the concept 'ask to receive' I felt this was overplayed, over simplistic and irritating.

Any additional comments?

The second book, Dare to Win, is much better than the former and if you buy them both together I'd suggest skipping through chapters of the first. I'd still err towards other publications by Canfield, he has some fabulous ideas and philosophy but these books just don't really show him in his best light.
