I am an enthusiastic reader of business and personal development books. This book is a classic that outshines all positive thinking books. It stops us from settling for second best in any situation. Excellent!

Optimalno mišljenje

str. 35- moto produktivnega sveta je že desetletja "Misli pozitivno!". Medtem število ločitev raste, zelo inteligentni ljudu so nesrečni, morala in etika naših voditeljev pa je pogosto dvomljiva.


Str. 65- "Zaupajte svojim notranjim namigom. Ponavadi temeljijo na dejstvih, ki ste jih popravili tik pod zavestjo." - dr. Joyce Brothers.

Str. 70- ko sebi in drugim postavite najboljša vprašanja, pritegnete najboljše rešitve.

I did not take full time to read this book-- In fact, I may have very well just read the important pieces, There was too much content that was unnesecassry to look at, such as the many examples per everything, which in my opinion subtract from this book.
Take the filler content out, and you will have got a slightly better version of Positive Thinking, well, a much better.
I'd recommend it, I finished it all in about 50 minutes or so. [Testing PhotoReading, turned out a slightly better version of s

Optimal Thinking by Rosalene Glickman helps anyone make the most of life, whether it be personal or work. The book not only helped me to save my marriage. It gave me the pathway and tools to make my marriage the best it can be. A book I read from cover to cover over and over again.

I enjoyed this book more toward the middle- end. However, this book has an overall "outdated" feel. I had the pleasure to speak with Ms. Glickman over the phone about her optimal thinking method, which offers some good insight, but an updated version is needed!

I think this is one of those books that either does something for you or it doesn't. I'm apparently in the latter camp. A friend recommended it highly, but the advice didn't resonate with me.

A great concept. As with most business books, it gets fluffy about halfway through. I don't think I even finished it, but still think it was very worth reading the first half.

This book has some good concepts butmthen devolved into the last half being more sessions of self hypnosis. Two hours of ocean sounds isn't really much of an audio book.

I listened to the audio book and it was difficult. It was pretty cheesy and Dr. Glickman is sometimes hard to understand.
