Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Chris Sorenson has the sensibilities and vocal charm to convey Maxwell’s message that life is more rewarding when we think more intentionally and carefully. His reading sounds calmly inspirational but has enough zip to add some welcome intensity to the author’s low-key wisdom. Along with his trademark optimism, the author delivers a solid analysis of how to use 10 different types of thinking, which include creative, reflective, strategic, and unselfish cognitions. This is an effective combination of heartfelt encouragement and thorough details on thinking habits that anyone can adopt to get more out of life.”
