Would you listen to The Secrets of Attraction again? Why?
Yes, I listened to it a couple of times after purchase. There's lots of things he talks about that invoke you to start making a list and really being decisive about whether you are actually going to make a difference to your life!It's worth a second listen with a pen and notepad after just absorbing it the first time.
Who was your favorite character and why?
well, Joe of course! Actually he does go on about his cars and guitars and music and some of the anecdotal input makes you wonder whether he has a smidge of ego poking through - but if he's cracked it, then I guess he's entitled to a little self praise or smugness. In reality he only means to inspire, so you have to just take that as you wish.As a musician who's owned some nice cars, I kind of related and didn't let his character interfere with the solid concepts.
What about Joe Vitale’s performance did you like?
He narrates well and doesn't speak too fast or slow or have one of those dreadful whiny accents. Plus he's talking about his own concepts, so there's more power and intent in his words.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Some of it is amusing in a "I've been there" kind of way but it's all pretty solid really. It did make me realise that some of the stuff that's in my way right now is only temporary and actually, I have some great things in my life which I started to think about and appreciate more!
Any additional comments?
I am not a religious person and always whince when you hear these "gurus" go on about religion and God (yeah, out of defference I am using a capital "G") Anyway, Joe Vitale talks about the Divine and the power out there, which I guess you have to believe in a little or you won't get anything out of the book. I think the underlying sentiment is you have to believe in yourself, no matter what your circumstance. To back that up he gives you some useful list-making opportunities so you can lay out your troubles in front of you and see what really is on your mind, so it is practical.I am pretty hard to please and retain a certain amount of scepticism due to being a "non religious type" I guess... However, I enjoyed the content and the delivery style and bought into this guy's sincerity and character. Give it a go and do what he says with his practical advice. It also made me realise I have it pretty good too, so maybe it did its job LOL.Hope this helps anyone reading this!
What disappointed you about The Secrets of Attraction?
The material is great, I'm not disappointed with that but what I am disappointed with is all of the disgusting noises the speaker makes. All I hear is him swallowing or the squishing noises of his lips. Its like he is chomping while chewing gum or something. It is sooooo distracting and grosses me out!
Would you be willing to try another one of Joe Vitale’s performances?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The material is great but the overall quality of the recording with the chewing and chomping noises is terrible. I have several dozen audiobooks and this is the only one I have where the swallowing noises are so pronounced.
