This is a great book that gives great guidelines on how to behave in order to be successful. Brett talks about vision, frequency, perception, accountability and leadership.

This book is not long and reads fairly quickly. Some of my favorite concepts from the book are the author's concepts on the law of frequency and the 7 steps to work through improving your frequency. Fear of failure and our personal desire to make the "right" decisions hold us back with success as we never want to be wrong and

Only 3 stars for this book. Though there are a lot of good points brought up, I found it hard to get past the author's tone that reverberates throughout the book and clouds the good things that he does say. But considering that he made me think about some things that I have not thought of before, he deserves 3 stars and not 2 :).

Harward contends to have found the 5 Laws that will determine all of your life's outcomes. I don't necessarily buy that premise, but the five things that he does list: V

I have not read this book, but I have personally gone through his BeYou class. The way he talks to others is extremely disrespectful. He yelled at me and shut me down in front of the whole class for simply not knowing what I wanted to get out of the course. He told me I was a train wreck and I was NEVER allowed to disagree with what he said. Total fraud.

There are many great principles in this book that can assist virtually anyone in the pursuit of an improved future, but I felt that a couple of points lessened its value.

First of all, I believe the laws outlined in this book are quite valid. Anyone who reads this book and adheres to its principles can greatly improve themselves in any aspect of their life. I am always eager to learn new things, and this book has given me some valuable insights that change my view on several aspects of life.

Brett Harward did not, as he claims, run a successful software company. Frontrunner technologies was on the verge of folding, when it's main investor took control of it away from Brett. This investor was then able to salvage what was left of it, after Brett having run it nearly bankrupt, and sold it to recover his investment, barely breaking even.

He was also in the habit of making promises he won't keep to his employees, such as partial ownership and shared profits. I don't trust him nor his ide

This book has a lot of good advice on how to be successful in business and relationships. I liked it because it is forthright and concise, and Harward is very good at explaining the 5 laws.

Unfortunately, my mind right now isn't in a place where I'm ready to hear some of it, so I sort of blocked out a few chapters that I can't handle right now. However, if you are more emotionally stable than I am right now, you might get more from it.

Yawn. . . . but of course, if one were to evaluate my life, i.e. my financial standing and significant relationships, specifically marriage(s), it makes sense that I would already possess most of this knowledge.

Much more for someone in the business world than for your average reader. Felt a bit repetitive at times although a handful of interesting points made.
