Let me make it clear from the outset that this is only my opinion and I can only speak on what I experienced. This not so much a book, rather more a large collection of sayings, observations and thoughts crammed, and I do mean crammed - like sardines in a can, into 70+ chapters which are loosely connected by the authors sparse comments many of which are glib one line platitudes. Is there good advice offered? Undoubtedly! The problem for me was the structure. This I feel would have

Good and (almost) perfect motivational book

A perfect motivational book for those who are seeking for a change and improvements to their life. One thing for certain, the sincere seeker will not be disappointed with the (almost) complete lists of character building, as it will opens up a new perspective for those who read this book.

I bought this book because I was intrigue on how I can do it! I find this book a must have for people looking for new perspective. Inside this book is quotes, the author seldom gives advice from his perspective. Now this book belongs to my success library.

Disappointing. General observations, platitudes, quotations, and stories very loosely grouped together with little organization into chapters. There's nothing new or fresh here. Read the chapter titles, and you've got it

I made it a point to read 3 chapters a day...preferably in the morning. Full of great quotes and Bible passages to help get you through the day. I will keep this on my desk for whenever I need a pick me up, or to give someone else encouragement.

The title made this book sound intriguing. However, I found it full of cute little platitudes that made it somewhat irritating to read. There was really no practical information that can be used to apply the principles and platitudes to life. I am glad it was a free book on Amazon.
