to be honest, when i started out reading this book, i was really doubting it. i'm not much of a self-help-book or a improve-your-life-book person but this was just amazingly written, i couldn't help but read through it.

what i find amazing about this book is that it's just totally straight to the point. it's easy enough to read and it's really short for a improve-book -- REAL short, but it just said the right things in a span of 2-3 pages.

i also found it really inspiring -- instead of the usual 'story-suggest-expound-highlight statement again and again' formula, it just told you straight out what you should be doing. it's just up to you whether or not you act upon those suggestions (for me, just a tiny fraction of it weren't so much applicable in my life. i'm not an artist, mind you, but maybe if i tried hard enough, i can bend those ideas somewhat to suit my lifestyle).

overall, it's just one amazing book that i think people should read at least once. yes, i'm about to steal it from my boyfriend (but i think he'll mind :|)
