Written in 1960 by two personal achievement pioneers, this well-crafted book is loaded with motivational juice and modern-sounding strategies for achieving success in any realm of life. However, the dramatic urgency in David White’s reading doesn’t modulate enough to capture the book’s nuances and optimism. The steady drumbeat of his intensity makes the authors’ gentle invitations come across as imperatives. But this is 10 hours everyone should hear, nonetheless, because of the many timeless suggestions, which include lots of memorable lists and summaries. With its inspirational stories and a message that gets to the heart of what holds people back, this audiobook is as hopeful and encouraging as anything you’ll hear on the subject of success and happiness.
