My mom loves this guy, but I had never read him until now. She handed me this book as I was going out the door to the airport, and I finished the other books, I was taking, so yeah.
Since it's pretty short, I finished it all in one sitting.
It was a bit heavyhanded, but the message is nice.
I'd say it was okay.

Excellent book. I read the Seeds of Success every morning and it's done wonders for my perspective. If you're feeling low on recognition and motivation, looking for meaning in life and/or ready for a new start, this book's for you.

Short and easy to read like all his books. This one had more appeal to me since it was not so strictly oriented towards making a lot of money or having a successful carrier. This one was more on paying tribute to Friends in High Places. Sweet story.

Aunque no soy muy amante de los libros de autoayuda y motivación, reconozco que gracias al "storytelling" este es uno de los que me ha gustado.
