That's my one-word summary of Dr. Joseph Murphy's "The Power of Your Subconscious Mind" unabridged audio book.
Before we get too far ahead and you drop your cold, hard cash I must say that "The Power of Your Subconscious Mind" is astonishingly BAD. Why is it so bad? Well, I must clarify that my bad review of the book is actually more a critique of the audio book. In particular, it is the narrator who will blow your mind. If you go to Amazon and listen to their clip, I think it's the longest period that the speaker doesn't make a fool of himself.
Why is The Power of Your Subconscious Mind so terrible?Well, to start off with the guy doesn't actually read to an audience. It's pretty much the sort of reading you expect from someone who is still learning a language because there is a disconcerting lack of meaningful pauses and speech "flow."
Next, the guy talks about "so crates." You may be familiar with this word as Socrates. In the audio book it is literally pronounced so crates. This is merely the tip of the iceberg. I could fill this blog post just commenting on the mispronounced words, but I won't waste your time.
The Power of Your Subconscious Mind Review SummaryIn fact, it's hard to believe that something this poor could be packaged and sold by any decent human being. It's pretty unfortunate though, because the actual book contains some good information that I found valuable. The bad part about the audio book was that I kept listening and waiting to hear what the next butchered word was, rather than soaking up the message. I probably won't read the book later on, because I plan on reading The Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel, which "The Power of Your Subconscious Mind" was partly based on. The Master Key system is a highly touted book and has very good reviews. I'll certainly be posting my thoughts on the book as I read it.
Final word on The Power of Your Subconscious MindStay AWAY from the audio book version. The written book is a different story, however.
