This book combines the principles found in many other books about financial intelligence, but tells it in a much more entertaining way. Definitely a must-read.

"Think and Grow Rich" is a motivational personal development and selfhelp audiobook written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by a suggestion from Scottish-American businessman Andrew Carnegie. While the title implies that this book deals only with how to achieve monetary wealth, the author explains that the philosophy taught in the book can be used to help individuals do or be almost anything they want in this world.

This book came up a lot while going through forums like r/personalfinance and r/financialfreedom. Gotta say, I wasn't too impressed. It's an old book, and its style is definitely dated. If this were written in the 21st century, it would face harsh criticism.

Out of the 178 chapters, about 20 could have been eliminated, and the remaining 158 could have been reduced to, at most, 90 chapters. There was a lot of fluff and drawn out text.

The underlying content is good. I just think it would be better to read/listen to a summary that gets to the point and save yourself some time.

The difference between successful and unsuccessful people is not that one group failed and the other didn’t. Rather, one overcame fears of failure by learning from mistakes and pushing through in spite of the fear. The other was captivated by fear and stopped right there. So, halt your fear of failure and join the list of successful people. Successful people have all failed, but got up, climbed their own ladder, and claimed their crown. You can do the same with our transformational tool - Get over Fear of Failure words of affirmation.

I'm not going to return this, but this really wasn't my kind of thing. The author read about 150 positive sentences to try to make you feel good about yourself. If I looked into this more before purchasing, I would have skipped it.

If you are into this kind of thing, go for it. But if you're looking for a book, this is not that.

Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

Fantastic performance. From start to finish, this book really draws you in. The main voice actor/producer has a soothing voice, and accurately differentiates characters through tone and inflection.

The writing style is very easy to understand. It doesn't bore you with gobbledygook or fluff words. Everything written has importance.

This is how the story should be experienced.

The prequel to the New York Times best-selling Maze Runner series. Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the Earth, and mankind fell to disease. Mark and Trina were there when it happened, and they survived. But surviving the sun flares was easy compared to what came next. Now a disease of rage and lunacy races across the eastern United States, and there's something suspicious about its origin. Worse yet, it's mutating, and all evidence suggests that it will bring humanity to its knees.

This book was definitely a prequel. Although it was definitely still good, I found this one more drawn out.

Situations were often too descriptive, giving too much importance to everything; making everything feel less important. The beginning was great, the middle was meh, and the end was great.

If you're looking to complete this series, you won't be disappointed with this book. But it likely wouldn't do well as a stand-alone.

Time to move on to book five!

WICKED has taken everything from Thomas: his life, his memories, and now his only friends — the Gladers. But it's finally over. The trials are complete, after one final test. What WICKED doesn't know is that Thomas remembers far more than they think. And it's enough to prove that he can't believe a word of what they say. Thomas beat the Maze. He survived the Scorch. He'll risk anything to save his friends. But the truth might be what ends it all. The time for lies is over.

Fumio Sasaki is not an enlightened minimalism expert or organizing guru like Marie Kondo - he's just a regular guy who was stressed out and constantly comparing himself to others, until one day he decided to change his life by saying goodbye to everything he didn't absolutely need. The effects were remarkable: Sasaki gained true freedom, new focus, and a real sense of gratitude for everything around him.

The principles were great. I love the simplicity and subtle repetitiveness of the writing style. You're easily able to follow along and remember what's being said.

The reason I took away one star was because near the end of the book I was getting a bit frustrated, asking "well, what DO you do?". However, he did sum it up nicely by saying, and I'm paraphrasing, "minimalism is different for everyone. You need to find what works for you".

Overall, it's definitely worth the read. It makes you think about your possessions, and give you a positive outlook on things you can change to make your life easier.

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He's surrounded by strangers - boys whose memories are also gone. Outside the towering stone walls that surround them is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It's the only way out - and no one's ever made it through alive. Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying: Remember. Survive. Run.
