    Nearly every house valued over $200,000 has a library in it. Now why do you think that is? Jim Rohn, motivational speaker and business genius, was almost a kinder, gentler Tony Robbins. Originally from Iowa, he uses common sense and a storytelling style in an effort to encourage listeners to improve their lives. This audiobook presentation is a mix of live presentations and studio-recorded bits. Personally, I think he was better in front of a live audience, but there was plenty to take away Nearly every house valued over $200,000 has a library in it. Now why do you think that is? Jim Rohn, motivational speaker and business genius, was almost a kinder, gentler Tony Robbins. Originally from Iowa, he uses common sense and a storytelling style in an effort to encourage listeners to improve their lives. This audiobook presentation is a mix of live presentations and studio-recorded bits. Personally, I think he was better in front of a live audience, but there was plenty to take away from in both sections. Here's some of what he shares in this audiobook: Read, learn, journal. Write down what works and what doesn't. Write down your goals and then take a minute to look at the passing days, weeks and months and see what you've accomplished. Eat healthy and take that walk around the block. If you don't, you may seriously regret it, maybe not today or tomorrow but in the years to come, you'll wish you took a minute to invest in yourself. Work hard at your job and you'll make a living. Work hard on yourself and you'll make a fortune! Rohn insists that anyone can be exceptional. He says success in business (and life) comes from small positive steps taken consistently over time. That type of approach really works for most any goal or dream you may have. Read contracts all the way through, every time. It seems like a simple thing, but it can take you down some dark roads if you don't read the fine print. He learned that the hard way. Don't stop reading and be a lifetime learner. Stay curious. Stay involved. And take pictures. Part of your legacy to the next generation can be the pictures and documentation you've made of your life. I can't tell you how many times I've listened to this audiobook. It's one of my go-to programs when life has me down. Jim Rohn believed you can accomplish anything that you set your mind to do. He makes listeners believe that too. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn "the art of exceptional living."

    I can only say that this was the book that has changed my thinking about my life. I actually had this book on CD, and because of me traveling with my job, i was able to listen to this book many times. One day, it made sense that i should be expanding my thinking, my knowledge, my understandings, and so here i am on this site, reviewing books, gathering the information on books, and adding to my future read list.

    I was first introduced to Jim Rohn in college, and he’s such a fantastic motivator. According to success expert, Jim Rohn, “you don't have to do exceptional things at all. Just do ordinary things exceptionally well. That's The Art of Exceptional Living.” Short, basic information, but powerful ideas to ponder & implement. He reiterates to work on yourself continuously & do your best in every situation.

    Loy Machedo's Educational Program Review - The Art of Exceptional Living by Jim Rohn The Art of Exceptional Living is a 2 CD educational speech complied by Jim Rohn which has bits and pieces of his program which he delivered both from the recording studio as well as on stage in front of a live audience. What surprised me was the intensity, the sincerity & the passion that came across from his delivery. The content was rich and the message truly thought provoking.

What surprised me was the intensity, the sincerity & the passion that came across from his delivery. The content was rich and the message truly thought provoking. In fact, I found it simply amazing to know that the advice given to the world by a Speaker, Trainer & Coach who was born in the 1930's still holds good - even today. Consider the following pieces of advice. * The greatest value in life is not what you get, it's what you become. * Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job. * Formula for Failure: a few errors in judgment repeated every day. * A guy who has an empty bank account probably has high cholesterol. * Formula for Success: a few simple disciplines practiced every day. * Read, Read, Read -All Leaders are Readers * Anyone can go down to their local library and access the same wealth of knowledge that would enable them to change their life, but most people choose not to. * Did you know there are cassettes and books on how to be stronger, more decisive, a better speaker, a more effective reader, have a better effect on other people, become more loving, develop personality, get rich, develop influence, become sophisticated... and people don't use them? May be that is why the legends of the Personal Development Industry like Tony Robbins, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Brian Tracy and so many others give him credit to being their mentor, teacher and coach. It is a very short, simple and sweet educational CD but without one of the must have collection for anyone. Overall - A 10 out of 10 for this timeless treasure from a truly great man whom I consider the father of Personal Development. Loy Machedo loymachedo.com

    The reason I love this book so much, is because it is almost like "The Best of Jim Rohn." If you ever have a chance to listen to the audio book series of the same name, it is actually a collection of several of Jim's seminars put together in a "sledge hammer" of self revelation & personal development.

This is a quick and easy listen with a lot of good information packed into one audiobook.

    This really shines the light on our thinking and personal philosophy, and how our daily actions and habits either help us, or hurt us, in the long run. There is a lot of simple information that anyone can relate to, delivered in his unique style, that turns out to be rather profound in the effects on our lives. Such as, the "apple a day" analogy and our health, versus "a Hershey bar a day."

    I've listened to other Jim Rohn programs the past couple months. This one and the others are quite repetitive; same core ideas, same overall stories. It would not be fair to say that if you've gone through one program, you've gone through the rest, but if you did not enjoy Jim Rohn in his other programs, it is unlikely you will enjoy him now in this one. I really loved his other programs and although I find the leaning on the same material unnecessary, listening repeatedly to the same principles I've listened to other Jim Rohn programs the past couple months.

I really loved his other programs and although I find the leaning on the same material unnecessary, listening repeatedly to the same principles helps them better get absorbed. Jim Rohn's narration is unique. It is his own personal way of saying things and engaging with his audience that makes his speeches and advice well worth the time.

    This guys voice is one of the most distinctive I have heard in a while. However the message is great. Rohn centers on the theme of "work harder on yourself than on your job". Lots of daily affirmations to keep up with (apple a day, walk, healthy living = positive attitude). --Audio Book

    My favorite mentor and life coach. When you read his books or listen to his tapes, you're basically learning from a master.

    Listened to on CD. Good starting points, slightly dated but a lot of valuable information. Probably an inspiration for Dave Ramsey. If you are a fan of his, this should be worth checking out.

    The Art of Exceptional Living is one of those books where listening to the audiobook version makes it even better. Jim Rohn's lighthearted but firm attitude about how one can improve their perspective (the main point of the book) is refreshing. This is a book that I will definitely be returning to!

    I listened to this book several years ago whilst driving back and forth to work. This book can be a life changer for those who want to learn to think and act differently. For others who simply want someone to wave a magic wand over them and make life better it will not work, but then again, nothing else will either.

    Rather enjoyable content but his voice is extremely annoying. Interesting that Rohn keeps reiterating phrases to a hypnotic effect. I guest most motivational speaker probably adopt the same kind of approach.

    I've listened to "The Art of Exceptional Living" twice now....once in the 1980's and now in 2015 as I approach my 56th birthdate. The second listen was just as powerfully motivating as the first. The title describes accurately and concisely the subject matter of the book. Jim Rohn is obsessed with discovering the simple truths of living an exceptional life.

Jim Rohn is obsessed with discovering the simple truths of living an exceptional life. Don't be scared away....they are truly "simple" truths. What makes Jim Rohn such an expert on life? Great question! The answer: Jim Rohn, under the tutelage of an successful, insightful mentor, transformed his life from "just getting by" to a life of incredibly rewarding work and success. Yes it took hard work. But most importantly, it took a transformation of his mind....the adoption of a few, simple, universal truths that changed everything. Mr. Rohn changed his career path, his life's goals and his perspective on success. Within six years, he went from an indebted blue collar worker with debts mounting to a successful business leader. He life was enriched tremendously. Jim Rohn changed my life too (and drastically) after listening to his audiobook the first time. I too changed my career path and my life's goals....and eventually I achieved them. It required hard work, dedication and sacrifice. But I was rewarded with an exciting career, inspiring relationships and a drastically improved life for my family. I did the work but Jim Rohn "planted the seed"! I owe much to Jim Rohn.

    This series of delightfully powerful talks by Jim Rohn is outstanding. It is a collection that I will certainly listen to several times over. His passion and unique presentation style are compelling. I love his references to how he started out in his early adult life on the wrong track, but that when he learned the very principles that he shares here, he was able to turn his whole life around. He gives frequent humble credit for this learning to a mentor who took a personal interest in him. This series of delightfully powerful talks by Jim Rohn is outstanding.

    This book is short and sweet. It seems to be a compilation of talks that Jim Rohn has given. You can tell how passionate he is about his work - he was very inspirational. The biggest pieces of advice that I got from listening to this book are: 1) work harder on yourself than you do on your job (because you are your biggest asset), and 2) Read, read, read: readers are leaders (yay!). I think you'll enjoy this short production, too!

    A life changing book that really lights a fire under you! Jim speaks from a position of care and inspiration, but he drives home the point that you cant just be enthusiastic, you have to be disciplined! My biggest key takeaway is that you have to develop a habit of "Finding out" and study constantly, and then always be disciplined and keep your promises. I recommend also having the audible version as it's nice to listen to in the morning to get yourself going.

    One of the best books ever written. The audiobook version is so impactful that it drives you to change. The unique thing about the book is that it mentions certain actionable ideas which can take you immediately on the path to success as opposed to shallow conceptual ideas by various other authors. Jim Rohn is a man who has been there and done that and a book like this from him is a treasure to have.

    A great inspiration! A classic of personal development with a traditional view on goals, self-motivation, etc. Simple and outstanding. Jim Rohn was such a gifted speaker. This is one of the rare personal development books that really work, because they lead to action. To be listened to again whenever stuck or in doubt of myself.

    Some new ideas on real study and discipline. Some good new books were recommended. (I liked: No second grade books!) A nice and different perspective on incorporating new disciplines and how our philosphies/habits determine different outcomes regardless as to exterior circumstances.

    An excellent audio to listen to again and again. Jim Rohn teaches humility and passion, ambition and character all at the same time. He sets a great example and teaches clearly, artistically, and confidently.

    Anything Jim Rohn does is entertaining and inspiring. His success philosophy is simple and he has some very quotable quotes that I have found useful in life for myself and in illustrating principles to others.
