Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Francesca | 2/20/2014

    " I liked this anthology of psychology, but I felt it was odd that among the 50 authors chosen, many, if not the majority, came from Harvard. It just can't be statistically... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maribel | 2/16/2014

    " This is a great review/overview of 50 great thinkers and researchers. It's a very quick read and provides lots of further reading suggestions which I will have to jot down and read in the future. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon | 1/15/2014

    " Finished the audiobook and was rather unsatisfied. He doesn't actually analyze the books, just summarizes the approaches for the most part. I was disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tejas | 1/11/2014

    " read like exec summary, led me to couple of new books which I will soon try out "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anand | 1/9/2014

    " To begin with, this book is very useful book for anyone who wants to know more references about various authors out there and their works. I got many new books planning to be read thru this book. It speaks about various authors and their books they haf written and gives excerpts from it. Good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 12/16/2013

    " serves as a refresher / cliff notes for some key ideas in psychology. Use as reference, not "for fun" reading... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janelle Atencio | 12/8/2013

    " Read this for my psychology class. I wish there was more details. I now have a list of things I want to look into more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith | 10/30/2013

    " Ahhh, a great read - very fast and readable, and phenomenally interesting. Easy to put down and pick up again after a long break. I wish everyone I knew would read this so we could talk about some of the studies' insights into human nature/human tendencies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Haider Al-Mosawi | 10/28/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara | 3/6/2012

    " This was a great book to learn about some of the basics of psychology without having to get too technical. It enables one to get a recommendation of more books in their own area of interest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shoal3724 | 2/4/2012

    " a great introduction to classics in various domains of psychology "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 6/3/2010

    " there are no tips in here-just a list with enough info to help you decide what book to pick up next. i like that it includes things that are not quite "self help" like the bible. it's more of a self development list then self help. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noushin | 1/5/2010

    " As a summary, it does a good job but I was expecting it to be more 'helpful'. It delivers the message without the force. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 6/18/2009

    " Good summary of the books that help so many with their lives. My favorite is still "Think and Grow Rich" by Napolean Hill. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexa | 12/2/2008

    " I listened to this one on audio and I loved it. There are so many great books and authors I never knew existed and this is a great way to get a taste of a ton of them!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tharique | 9/11/2008

    " Wow.. Nice collection of inspirational books and those authors. Really love to read it. Nice one.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Panata | 5/3/2008

    " Buku ini seperti daftar menu. Ada 50 menu sample untuk memuaskan lapar dan dahaga pengembangan diri. Buku ini berisi uraian singkatnya yang mengantar pembacanya untuk menikmati menu aslinya secara utuh. Ada 50 sampel yang enak dan bikin ngiler. Sebuah buku sampel yang bagus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 2/23/2008

    " A review of the best self help books. I enjoyed hearing the good points of books from the Bible to 7 Effective Habits of Successful People to Dale Carnegie, to the Dalai Lami, to many many others that I had heard about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shane | 1/30/2008

    " Listened to as an audio book - lots of good info summarized. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erik | 1/17/2008

    " I really liked this one because it's not a typical self help book. It doesn't actually give you any self help pointers, as much as it just gives you a list of other books that will. So I guess in a way, that is teaching you how to help yourself find self help... I already feel better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 11/1/2007

    " it's a collection of good books & theory. nice to read to understand a lot of new knowledge to learn. "
