Format: Audio Cassette
Jim Rohn is without a doubt one of the foremost success thinkers and writers alive today. I own a company that distributes all his written and audio / visual work and I have used his philosophy over a number of years to revolutionise my life. His message works. The content of this tape programme works, there is no doubt about it. The problem with this audio session is that the way it is recorded is not conducive to enjoyment of the subject. It gets tiresome and boring.
The premise of the content is as the title suggests, Taking Charge of Your Life. The set covers all the basics of Rohn's philosophy; The 5 Major Pieces to the Life Puzzle, How to Affect People with Words, Bridging the Communication Gap, The Magic of Persuasion, Leadership and Building a Great Team. Jim Rohn's success formula is centered around the personal change needed to create success. In essence this programme will teach you about making pro active, personal philosophical change. It covers all the areas needed to bring about such change. It is therefore very difficult to criticise the fabulous content. It will change your life if you act upon the information.

The drawback to this programme, is that the material is presented and contrived within a studio setting. It is polished by Nightingale Conant producers. Anyone who has listened to Rohn live, through the brilliant; WEEKEND SEMINAR, MAKING OF A LEADER or CHALLENGE TO SUCCEED tape programmes, will be very disappointed with this one. Jim looses his spontaneity by being produced. There is very little wit, fun or off the cuff remarks that make Rohn one of the most brilliant public speakers, alive today. My suggestion is to forget this programme, the aforementioned programmes offer the same message, but with a "Live" Rohn at his very best.

Great Content but Poor Format 24 May 2000
By C. M. Cotton - Published on Amazon.com

To summarise, the content is great, but the studio orientated "produced" style is not conducive to your enjoyment. I truely feel, that the point to an audio programme versus a book is for the listener to by fully entertained by the presentation, while still getting the content message. This proramme will bore the listener to death. If this was the only audio set Rohn had produced, you should buy it. As he has produced better audio sets than this one, forget Take Charge of Your Life and buy the WEEKEND SEMINAR, MAKING of a LEADER, or CHALLENGE TO SUCCEED. It will be money well spent.

Timeless Principles 26 July 2002
By Ric G - Published on Amazon.com
I thoroughly enjoyed this program. Sure, the principles Jim talks about are pretty much commonsense, but its the way he presents them that makes them so profound.
Over the past year I must have listened to this program about 30 times (I do a lot of listening while I run of an evening) and each time I listen to it I get something new, get some new insights and perspectives.
Unlike the other reviewer, I actually quite liked the studio format of the program - it made me feel "part of the crowd", and not like the presentation was canned.
I highly recommend this program to anyone. I got mine from the library - so the price was deinitely right!!
Good listening and good luck!
The Best of Rohn's Recordings 22 July 2014
By A Guidice - Published on Amazon.com

Often people overwork their material and end up ruining it. Stephen Covey's later 7 Habits audio material isn't as good as the early '90's versions.I always thought this was the best Jim Rohn program out there. It was early on, so it's tightly presented and stays on track. But the material is superior here - outlined precisely. His presentation is compelling.

In later live recordings, he's very flippant and tries too hard to entertain. The routine can get tiresome and downright trying at times; particularly when, to stress a word, he knowingly uses that trick of emphasizing the wrong syllable and then whining the word out like a screeching magpie. And the later live work is poorly organized, compared to this.

Rohn empathizes here. In later work he seems to ridicule and rub his success in people's faces; a smart-aleck, put-down approach. When people are in pain, they don't want to be scolded. Here the tone is measured, proper.

I met Rohn once, in the late 1990s. He was smug, almost imperious. I'll just bet he was more approachable and friendly around the time this was recorded. Who knows...
Life Changing Wisdom and Humor 8 Aug 2013
By Jeff Crask - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Take Charge of Your Life has been a great inspiration to me over the years. I used to get it from the library
but when it became unavailable I started having withdrawal symptoms so I bought it.

If you are prone to blaming others for your problems this program will help you tremendously.
Personally, I love all the Bible references, but some people may not.

Persuasive writing isn't my strong point but I promise you listening to this will change your life for the better.

Plus, Jim's sense of humor is wonderful.
