Wonderful reading

(4 stars)

Very inspirational and supported by evidence. However, there is obviously controversy in his religious additions. Nevertheless, it stands true. The reader has a very concise and nice voice, and it was easy to understand most times. I only gave it 4 stars because at times it was hard to decipher what she said, but very scarcely. Conclusively, a very good audiobook.

hope to be good!

the previous book was really influent and has courage to take you up and sit down on right way, right path, in other words it says us to live with certain way, that isn't easy, but also nor impossible. also one thing, bear in your mind God is immortal Man - Man is mortal God.

Just like the title, it's really the greatest of the greatest.

I really enjoyed the knowledge from this book & am really excited to apply it in my daily life routine till my appointed time to leave this world place called Earth. A must read for those who want to be great like Jesus Christ.

Wisdom that is as much relevant today as it was in times past. The act of deliberate thinking is lost amongst us due to our tendency to blindly accept as true what media, including social platforms, project. This book is a call to action to change our ways. Worth listening over and over.

Is the science of being great!

Highly recommend it. My personal suggestion would be to listen first his other book, the science of getting rich. Both narrated really well by the same lady. As a bonus if you'd like, try listening to the power of concentration. Read, if I'm not mistaken, by Andrea Fury.

(5 stars)

This book has helped me tremendously in life! I read the science of getting Rich and that book was incredibly eye opening and has been a constant reread throughout the last few years and has opened up doors that I never thought could be opened!

(5 stars)

Wonderful book! The fascinating thing to me was I was becoming aware of these things on my own so this book confirms that it truly is within you! This book explains it in such a concise, way to understand way. Thank you.

I will be listening to this book many more times, I love the references to the Bible puts Jesus's words into the perspective of universal law. I love that each chapter ends with an affirmation, higher truths.
