Quick Summary
Bauer’s The Best of Jim Rohn is a noble attempt to summarize the teachings of one of America’s most admired self-improvement coaches but it falls flat. It’s short and contains a ton of grammatical errors. Plus, a majority of the best highlights were Jim Rohn’s quotes rather than the author’s content.
