Although we live in an ocean of words, we rarely acknowledge their power to uplift or put down, to inspire or discourage, to help or hurt. But in this jewel of an audiobook, Hal Urban, parent, award-winning teacher, and author of the classic Life's Greatest Lessons, shows us simple and immediate ways that we can use language to change lives, both our own and those around us.

Common Sense is not so common!

While I haven't even finished listening to Mr Urban I am certain that I, and those around me, will benefit from his words of common sense.

This book is not about positive thinking. It is not about affirmations or doing something new. It is merely focussed on taking a little care over something we all do - using words, when we speak or even think.

Our choice of words affects how we feel and how those who listen to us feel.

Worth a listen

I enjoyed this, as it gave an understanding to your attitude toward others contributes to the words we use (and choose). A good book and easy to listen to.

Enlightening and Though provoking

Outstanding book to remind you of the important things in life. I implemented the "Family Fun Night" and have been having a ball every since. My family really looks forward to it and we enjoy the time together. I am very thankful for the reminders and ways to improve my life.

This book changed my life. I never realized that almost all of my unhapiness in life was caused by my negative outlook and response to life. This book gives detailed steps you can take immediately to make your life and other's more positive and thus more enjoyable. I really thought I was a positive person until I read this book.

I also realized some of the mistakes I was making in my daily conversations that were pushing people away from me. This book made me feel high with happiness for weeks after reading it and affected everone I recommended it to in the same way. If I had the money, I would buy a copy for every one.

This was one of the best books I have ever read on personal devolopment besides "The seven habits of Highly Effective people" by Stephen Covey.

If you want to be happy in life, read these two books!
