The book is written in a way that readers can start implementing the strategies and change right away. The language is concise and clear, and the author is drawing from his extensive experience to illustrate the concepts. What a great strategy and steps to self-improvement and to succeed whatever your situation. This is a definite recommend for people looking to succeed when all the odds are against them.

Not going g to rate this one. I won o.j t in a goodreads giveaway and I had assumed it was a political book and it is more like a bible study application self help book. Not something I need right now so basically skimmed the book. It was on the kindle and some of the worksheets where illustrations and impossible to read on my paperwhite kindle.

The author gives a look at the core values in order to improve our well-being, without becoming preachy. He explains us in a step-by-step approach what lays at the heart of joy, peace, satisfaction, and success in our lives. If we want to change the world, we must begin by changing ourselves first by integrating a coherent set of values in our deeper self.

The author is intending to show how it isn't the environment, so much as the values we cultivate that determine our value and worth. Starting with the comment made by Trump regarding his feelings about certain countries, Demes shows how to circumvent and overcome the circumstances that keep most people down.

Demes digs right in to begin showing easy changes and values that will begin creating a better life for those who are serious about changing.

Not really sure what to say, or how to really rate this one as I felt off reading it. I will say that I do not agree with the 5 star reviews. Since we do not all see the world the same way this is the type of process that really works. I would say read the reviews and give it a shot and tell everyone what you think.

WON IN A GOODREADS GIVEAWAY! I am going to DNF this book. It’s just not for me. I thought it was gonna be political humor combined with a self help style (I mean, look at the cover and title, it kinda leads to that impression) but instead it’s just a straight up self help book and potential bible study. I am not religious myself and the self help portion seemed to me to be similar to the ADPIE acronym we use in nursing. Which, I mean, it gives me an idea to start applying ADPIE to my normal life ...more
