Brilliant book on a brilliant mind although the audio is poor which is disappointing for an author of this level.

Great message and authenticity

It is a well balanced story with an important message, thanks Peter Diamandis for sharing!

The production seems to be inspired from original McGuyver or Baywatch. Introductions, music and other elements that should support the significance in the story is totally outdated and disconnected from the story.

The recording is sadly made with random gear, which is also disconnected from the message, and effecting the whole experience. Why allow unnecessary friction to limit the output of the important message?

Get Abundance is highlighting the improvement in the world and the possibilities for each human. We need to breakthrough all the negative and consumption noise we are overwhelmed with today. It's message goes through any silly production.

Transformative positive outlook

Transformative positive outlook towards world and future.

A mindset , that sets a bold audacious goal. Humans need an audacious vision, above the line of super credibility

Some powerful and some well worn ideas

Energetically presented, Peter Diamandis communicates his approach to generating breakthrough innovations. Some of the concepts are game changers (exponential thinking - which has been around for a while but the implications are particularly well explained here), others are reasonably well worn by 2015 (e. g. crowdsourcing). Two things brought the book down for me: an apparent shortage of content led to virtually verbatim repetition in some sections (eg. how much better off we all are now than a hundred years ago, two or three times) and a completely over the top quantum of sickly sweet self stoking between Diamandis and his host. Still well worth a listen.

awesome book, terrible recording

loved the content and message. the audio, however, sounded like somebody recorded it with their phone from the back of a lecture hall. and the inspirational muzak was irritating.

The short version of Abundance

Highly recommend Peter's book Abundance as a first read but if and when you need a refresher, this is the one to read. Only about 5 hrs but a great reminder and call to action.

I love Peter, and this was a great Listen

If you could sum up Get Abundance in three words, what would they be?

Change the World

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well, I'd say Peter? Since he's basically the only one you hear from.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was inspired - Peter Diamandis is inspirational, and while there wasn't a tremendous amount of new content here, it was presented well, and it was truly inspirational.

Any additional comments?

Get this. Now. Just buy it.

Metaphor wrapped in opportunity

This recording is far from perfect. And that's one of the points. If you hold to perfection growth gets choked off.

This is a remarkable man in our time--live--with a counter for all that's not working and lamentable. I've got to go now. I've lots to accomplish.

Good theme, very inspirational

This is a few separate talks strung together as a whole, and as such it is a bit disjointed and repeats itself a little. Oh, and the transition music is cheesy. All that said, I plan on listening again to grab more gems and inspiration. Very motivating!

Repetitious, redundant & poorly recorded

I am a great fan of Dr Peter Diamondis, but this recording is a poorly recorded (sounds like it was recorded in a steel barrel) recap of material that is much better presented in “Abundance.”

Peter improved me by his world view!

Peter H. Diamandis thoughts, revelations and experience have extremely influenced my mindset and thinking! I understand that Elon Musk, Branson, Steve Jobs and others are more popular and influential people and their books and thoughts are mind blowing, but Peters books have given me mire value in my thinking than others!!! Thank you for sharing your world view!

Didn't love it

I read Abundance which was great. This was repeated information from that book and was internally repetitive. Good material but I would recommend just reading Abundance.

Challenging you to think big

Peter shares life stories and lessons in a driven and passionate way. Thought provoking content, but not a step-by-step guide for others to follow.
Audio quality was poor and sounded like an amateur recording.

Great insight into new technology

A magnificent overview of innovation and technology. If you need a source of optimism for the world we live in, this is great. The book is slightly shorter than I'd expected and the music interludes were a bit odd, but overall I enjoyed and took value from it. Worth the read.

Confirmed and concreted a world view that I had but could not express factually

It changes that games to have a hopeful and excited world view for the future, it's a truly amazing time to be alive despite the issues and you can not help but want to be part of the transformation of the human race.
