A curious CD, the narrator's rich, all-American baritone being one of the most attractive aspects of this summary of Napoleon Hill's epic work. I find the content to have a similar effect to a Chinese takeaway meal - no offence to the Chinese. It leaves one feeling hungry some time after the partaking of it. Not that the information contained is at fault - indeed if it was possible to maintain the mindset delineated by Napoleon Hill, then everybody would be dynamic, rich and fulfilled. And if all men "had behind them the love of a good woman" and the comfort of a loving family as the CD exhorts, then perhaps America would be in a different place to its present position, and would be spreading Love without the aid of guns. Not that I'm knocking America either - the British too have much to be ashamed of as well as proud.
The CD is very nice if you want upliftment as you drive, and don't mind the antiquated perspective of man-married-to-and-supported-by-good-woman, go-out-there-and-do-it gung-ho, cowboy western mentality of yesteryear. As for a lifestyle intervention, hmm. Do you still use the fitness DVDs you bought? If you do, then this might help you in the long run.
