it was ok

As a self help book this really stinks. It's a whole lot of tips for success that only a complete psychopath would believe and follow with any conviction. But as a window into the minds of all those people "striving for success" who support the self help industry it's fascinating. This book is pretty historic as it basically started the booming self help industry we know today. It was (and still is) a raging success as it tapped into the fears many of failure many of us have that manifest themselves in low self esteem. For that reason (and that reason alone) it is worth reading. This book spawned a million imitators and is the reason we pretty much have Amway and other pyramid selling organisations.
