Alice Schroeder selected The Snowball as a title for her biography of Warren Buffett because, when he was a boy growing up in Omaha, he observed a large ball-like shape rolling down a hill, gaining both size and speed as it moved along. He immediately recognized its implicit power. Positive compound interest remains among his core principles. For millions of others, negative compound interest (e.g. on credit card debt, "upside-down" mortgages) has created very serious problems.
For me, Darren Hardy's most important point in this book is this: All of the decisions people make (however "small" they may be) can have positive results if those decisions are guided and informed by what he calls The Compound Effect principle. Conversely, a minor cut that becomes infected and is neglected could eventually result in major surgery, perhaps even an amputation. In fact, Hardy insists - and I agree - there are no "minor" or "small" decisions if their potential implications and consequences are ignored. These are among the subjects that Hardy addresses in his book:

My beef is with Amazon.ca. Why isn't the audio version available? It is at Amazon.com. For those of us with young kids and too-busy lives, audio versions are a godsend. This is at least the third time I've experienced this. I'm getting less and less impressed with Amazon.ca.
Please fix the problem Amazon.ca.
Darren - you are an inspiration! Great Job on the Book!
A book to keep by your side,
