really liked it
bookshelves: self-help, owned
Read from June 27 to September 30, 2012

I wanted to give this book five stars. It almost made my favorite list. It really is a very good book, and this coming from a guy that giggles and scoffs at most self-help books. I read it only because my girlfriends mother left it in the bathroom, and I've adopted the philosophy of reading anything left in the bathroom, my taste or not, because hey, why not? I was pleasantly surprised to find minimal to no religious bias or cushy psycho babble, two things I thought were near unavoidable in the genre. The on hundred ideas were all great, some I already practiced, some I have since implemented. So why only four stars? Well to be honest too much filler. Some of the ideas were pretty common sense stuff that I would hope the average person wouldn't need recommended to them. There were also a couple of chapters that were essentially repeated later on with slightly different wording. None the less a must read for anybody that needs some help calming the hell down, which I think is probably almost everybody.
