If this is the first book of psychology you have ever read, you might like it. If you have ever read something on similar topic before, you will likely be disappointed.

Asking myself this before every decision I make has really helped. Only thing about this book was that its a bit repetitive at the beginning in terms of explaining what the book is about, other than that it was very enjoyable to read! ...more

This book has lots of case studies and exercises to help make tiny, manageable steps towards your goal. Several of the techniques resonated with me and will be going in my "toolkit".
