I love this author and his stories. I just discovered him and this app. They have so many lessons for those who believe in the power of faith and positivity plus I like how he has a unique way of having some character in each of his stories somehow learning or meeting a character from another one of his stories and in some way you learn of another one of his books from that story. I found the narrators voice a little annoying though but I knew it would be worth listening to.

This is such a great book! By following these 4 simple key steps, I think everyone can plant themselves and flourish in any endeavour they choose and discover their full potential by following the signs and staying on the path. Very inspirational book by Jon and is read very well by Erik, whom I have recently come to enjoy since listening to ‘The Laptop Millionaire’

Beautifully written, only wished I had read this book a little earlier. Nonetheless, I will look carefully where to plan "my seed" next time.
