I bought this online. If i had seen it in a bookshop and flicked through I would have seen that this was not what I was looking for. I feel the need to change my life, many aspects of it but this book is very business/work orientated. There are always pearls you can glean from all books and there are some in here but it really did not live up to the title. Some contradictory stuff too. On one page says produce high quality work at all times, nobody remembers how fast you produced it, just the qu ...more

I'm going to assume this book was written before the recession as he repeatedly claims that this is the best time in all of history to find your ideal career and get rich. Ugh. He starts with "idealization" i.e. Oprah's "The Secret" and ends with excessive platitudes like "work an extra two hours a day to be successful" and "ask your boss for more responsibility." I mean, c'mon. Full of clearly made up statistics without a reference in sight. Just ugh, ugh, ugh. I had to read it through just to ...more

Tracy keeps putting out books with the exact same content under different titles. There are times where it's almost word for word the same info as his "Ultimate Goals Program" and "
No Excuses!" The only real difference between this and the other two is a section about finding a new job.

Also, he tends to throw out a lot of statistics without backing it up. Did you know 80% of people who think about donuts always eat donuts on Thursdays? No? Probably cuz I just made that up. That's the kind of shi

Brian Tracy is a well respected name in the success and self help genre.

I have read a number of his articles and books. Mr. Tracy’s style is clean and concise. In an easy to read straightforward manner he outlines steps for success.

His book "Reinvention" has all of these elements and guides the reader through
1) How to identify what is important
2) How to take control of your career
3) How to targeting the job you really want
4) How to turn the unexpected into an opportunity
5) How to increase earni

This was my first Brian Tracy book and I had high hopes but was disappointed. This book should've been called how to work harder at your job. He gives exercises in the beginning and a little pep talk on reinventing yourself but the rest of the book is about finding a job or getting promoted. He focuses so much on wanting you to do better and learn new skills but if change is constant, as he says, basically you will never be good enough. This book just really lacked a big picture for me. Good for ...more

YOU JUST CANNOT AFFORD TO MISS OUT ON WHAT BRIAN TEACHES. It's brilliance. This book is mostly a rehash of his other books and concepts, but each time you experience Brian Tracy, the lessons sink in deeper. I found Chapter 6 astonishing... provided a real breakthrough for me, but for others another chapter may be more valuable. At any rate, I am so grateful to live in an era where Brian is among us. It's revolutionized how I think and work.

This excellent motivational book summarizes a lot of his earlier works with a focus on re-creating your future from where you are right now. For my own needs, it had a bit too much on job searches and time management, but the latter may be because I just read some of his other works on this topic. I would recommend this book to anyone thinking "where to from here."

This book exceeded my expectations. It almost summarized some of his earlier works and some of material from others in the industry (like Awaken the Giant Within). Some reviews that I read were negative for that reason, I kind of liked it though. Nothing groundbreaking but a really good reminder and summary of a TON of great principles and thing you can do to progress.

Recommends it for: anyone thinking of a career/life change
Shelves: career, non-fiction
This book made me focus on quite a few topics I had not wanted to think about or had not considered prior to reading it. The questions and space for writing in answers was very helpful. I'm just beginning my change process and will be referring back to this book over the next few months as I tackle my goals.

I like Brian Tracy's stuff, but I really wish he could come up with some original material sometimes. Pages upon pages upon pages are cut and pasted word-for-word from other books of his. Even the anecdotes, quotes, and stories are the same. C'mon Brian, you can do better than that! Can't you? All this talk about personal excellence and he really seems to be mailing it in.

I believe that Brian Tracy is one of the best people who know what time management really is. Every accomplished little thing brings feeling of accomplishment that motivates you. Planning is control, and planning is motivation. Be in control of your life.

You could call this "Generic Self-Help book" and you wouldn't be far off target. It gives okay, but cliche advice that has the decency to avoid fads but repeats itself far too often for its length. Also it's kind of silly to put "fill in the blanks" in a Kindle ebook.

With the rapid changes in the work place the average person will have 11 full time jobs lasting 2 years or more & as many as 4 or 5 careers.

This is more about how to be more productive and better @ your work and career rather than reinvention. Decent read.
