I have enjoyed Robert Ringer since shortly after his first book, Winning Through Intimidation, was published in 1973. I regretted his decision to change the title to To Be or Not to Be Intimidated?: That is the Question. I only recently read that he revised and updated it before changing the title. That attenuates my disappointment a bit. This more recent work has a lot to offer. Rather than summarize, I will share a few quotes that I found (literally) noteworthy.

This book was referred to me by a John Mauldin. You’re going to find out that John has influenced a lot of selection of my reading lately. There are three major people who I credit for me finally decided to get my own place: my sister, my yoga teacher, and him.

More about John another time; for now, we got a book to review.

Robert Ringer is the self-proclaimed turtle who through virtuous discipline comes out ahead. With this foundation, action … doing something and then later you can wait for the
It's true. It's a fundamental law of physics. What I learned is that you don't have to have the right results. Start taking action and get feedback and constantly learn from your mistakes. Just keep going.
