Well, it made for a good book club discussion. We don't usually laugh that much reading the blurbs about the book. I was greatly relieved everyone else in the book club felt the same as I did....that this book was a waste of time.

Silly unrealistic frame tale about some guy who has a lame life and then, in a botched suicide attempt, travels through time to hear lessons about success. Kind of George Bailey-ish. We find out that he will end up wildly successful and that his boss who laid him off will go out of business in some sort of Christian karma.
Decisions:
1) Personal responsibility
2) Seeking wisdom
3) Taking action
4) Decisiveness
5) Choosing to be happy
6) Being compassionate and forgiving
7) Persisting without exception

I was given this book by a friend and although the story is not wonderful, the seven decisions for success were great and I agree with them for the most part. I gave it four stars because although the story wasn't great, the author kept the writing light and I didn't feel bogged down. I am glad I read it, but wouldn't recommend it for everyone.

yes the story was similar to Scrooge, but if you have ever lost a job, had sick children and felt your back against the wall and were tempted to wallow in self pity, this is a great book to lift you out.

I wish these principals were taught from birth to all children. What a different society we would have.

I loved this book very much. Call it lame, cheesy, etc. But all in all, given the historical figures each decision was based from, made it very inspirational and gave you something to think about in your own life. It made you realize how important a role all of the advice passed on could affect your own life, if applied. It was very easy reading. Read it in one sitting.

Interesting and enjoyable approach to covering Andrews' seven decisions to personal success. A kind of mix between It's a Wonderful Life and Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. I finished this in one sitting, couldn't wait to see how Andrews expressed through historical figures each successive decision.

I didn't agree with some of the "7 decisions that determine personal success". It was corny and the ending was lame.
It was interesting to learn about the story of Joshua Chamberlain and I'd like to read a bio about him.

One of my favorite books, ever-- and a perfect gift book for graduation, encouragement, thanks. The lessons of wisdom that come from those who have made this life journey ahead of me are always of great value. It gets a 20 on a 10 in my scale of approval!

Although certain aspects of this book are cheesy and somewhat of a self-help cliché, I enjoyed time traveling with the narrator and learning principles to live by in order to lift your life out of mediocrity and live with passion and purpose.

This book was very inspirational, whether you are spiritual or not. I really liked how the author used these historical figures to get the message across. It was very creative. This book is an easy read, I read it in one day.

Well, what can I say about this book. If you are looking for a good story this is not it; if you want historical accuracy, this is not it; but it does have some good personal improvement gems, though could have been delivered in a much better manner.
Lenorek
A good book to read if you want some inspirational ideas for personal success. The story and plot isn't what makes this book good, it is the advice and wisdom provided by the "special" guests that show up in the book.

This would be soooooo much better if it were edited, edited, edited! Use the historical figures, keep the (edited!) "decisions" and forego the cheesy story and inflated alter-ego ending. Could be a very inspirational pamphlet or pocket book.

Loved this book! I have read it a few times since 2002, and I find it so facinating.

Liked the historical figures portrayed and the synopsis given for each of the seven decisions. Was surprised by the abrupt ending to the book. Listened to it on CD.

This is one of those inspirational self-improvement books. The author pulls in historical characters to teach the life's lesson so it does have some "factional" story to it.

I like the 7 decisions by themselves but the story is kind of cheesy. I almost felt like I was at an Amway meeting.

Listened to the audio version for a class on finding inner peace. A little hokey but had some good points.
