Publisher's Summary

Learn About the Slight Edge That Will Bring Success and Happiness into Your Life in a Fraction of the Time It Takes to Read the Actual Book!

In the first chapter, Jeff Olson introduces his readers to the idea that every single person on this planet has the potential to turn either into a poor, unsuccessful beach bum or into a successful entrepreneur with a huge balance in his bank account. He tells his own story - about how he went from failure to success to another failure, how he slowly learned that failure and success both happen for the same reason, and that this one single reason can work either for or against you, depending on how you use it. Listeners are motivated by listening on because they would like to know more about the idea that people have complete control over the directions their lives are taking.

Here is a preview of what you'll learn when you download your copy today:

  • How successful people do things differently
  • The reason why small actions produce the biggest rewards
  • How to incorporate self-discipline into your life

Summary

I was looking for the Slight Edge on audible and not able to find it. I prefer to listen to a book then sit and read it :). I came across this summary on audible and read some of the reviews and decided to purchase. After listening to this summary I will most likely purchase the book to read. This summary in my opinion gives enough information to get the idea of the book and how it is laid out. I am glad that Jeff Olsen does not promise anything but holds you accountable to make it happen for yourself. It is not about instant gratification and if it was, that gratification would only last a moment. If we work at the things we want we will appreciate it so much more in the end.

Not enough

I wish the complete book was available. This was not enough for me though the ideas in it were valid. I realize it's a summary but it's too brief

Great concept

Wish I'd thought up this concept. I like how this version gives me the cut and dry bare bones outline of the fleshed out book.

Not what I expected

I disliked how short this was, I thought that this would be a reworded short version of the book. But it is more like a review

All Meat, No Fat!

I'm totally into summary and analysis reports now! Whether it's listening to a summary while I wait for a book to arrive in the mail, or instead of reading or listening to an entire book.. I think this is the way to go!

Were is the actual book?

While the performance and narrator did a good job I was just dissapointed that the actual book is not being sold here on audible making this summary pointless... If we had liked what we had heard then the actual book should be available as well so that we may enjoy the full story.

Did I really buy a summary of a book?

I bought this at a recommendation from a friend, but I had no idea it was just going to be a summary of the book I actually wanted to read. What's the point of a 40-minute summary? Why not just give me a one-paragraph summary for free or the full book for the price I paid? I feel like this is a ripoff and a complete waste of money.
