One of our most accessible Christian pastors revitalizes personal growth principles that everyone knows—press forward and be positive, disciplined, honest with yourself, self-accepting, mindful of relationships, and passionate about life. Stories from history, his life, and the Bible illustrate the teachings and give the book a rich emotional texture. Even in this unabridged form and without the actual sound of Osteen's optimistic voice, the production is fast and invigorating. After a mechanical-sounding sentence or two, narrator Jonathan Hogan finds his rhythm and delivers a journeyman’s reading that serves the material well. Though any narrator would sound unremarkable compared to Osteen, with his distinctive speaking style, Hogan sounds committed to the author's message and accepts his supporting role in this remarkable lesson.
