Audible Editor Reviews

Chris Gardner, the real-life entrepreneur whose memoirs of struggling with homelessness to raise a son and eventually become a successful stockbroker was the basis for the movie The Pursuit of Happyness, presents a series of life lessons to help other prospective businesspeople to realize what they want to be and actualize that potential. Gardner recalls his success and the advice that spurned it, and how receiving lessons from others has made him feel that he should "pay it forward". Andre Blake performs Gardener's words in a steady and friendly tone, making the subject feel light and lofty goals seem attainable.
