5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin 19 Mar 2010
This is a brilliant little book. I felt that the author took ideas from Behavioural Therapy, Life Coaching and NLP and put them into bite size, happy, readable chunks. It really encouraged me to be brilliant, something I wasn't expecting. I guess he reminded me of the delight in doing things well, and the joy of just exceeding, for its own sake.
In the heart of the book, he talks about changing your values, belief systems, and re-looking at the evidence for the belief systems you created. All quite deep stuff, but presented very well and in a way I could understand. I've been coming across lots of stuff about personal responsibility and people saying that "we create our own lives and everything that happens is as a result of our own decisions, actions and beliefs" but this is the first book I read that really explained to me why. I liked it very much and I would recommend it to anyone on a quest to live a more productive and fulfilling life.

2.0 out of 5 stars What exercises? am I missing something? 9 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
I read these reviews and bought the live CD as I have a lot of books and fancied listening to a live event for a change. I liked the guys style but after listening to the whole CD (including adverts at the end) I felt there was nothing much new or really anything you couldn't work out for yourself and where were the exercises?
I can sum up the whole talk up in a few points.

Don't just do things averagely or even really well - go the extra mile and do them brilliantly.
Do a lot right now and you will see a lot of results
Think positively not negatively.
Imagine and visualise yourself doing things brilliantly.
Don't do everything yourself - get a great team of experts working for you.

And that is it really. I am sure if you do those things it will be good for you, but I know that. If I pay for someone's expert advice I would expect a bit more than them being very up beat and telling me to be brilliant.

Make up your own mind how much you money you want to spend on getting that information.

Not greatly impressed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Aim High And Achieve 19 May 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is not a brilliant book. Some of the success-stories are inaccurate and therefore lose their punch. Some of the brain science is a bit dodgy. Some of the sentiment is a bit too syrupy. But there are some good jokes and it is very encouraging. The best thing about the book is that it is short and concise. So, well worth adding to your library of personal growth manuals (turning your life around is not a one-shop trip) but too flawed to be brilliant. Plenty of good ideas to cherry-pick but it still lacks a bit of polish to get five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars How To Be Brilliant 18 Mar 2004
By Seeker
I thought this was a book written by a Geordie for Geordies who wanted to walk around saying "Brilliant" to each other...but I was wrong.
It's a very simple and powerful self-help book that hits the key areas and does it in a very action-oriented fashion.
It prompted me to ask someone very famous to be a mentor for me - someone I thought would definitely say no - and they said yes by return email. How about that for action.
Try the book, enjoy it, and get on with maximizing your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's different because it makes you DO IT! 12 Mar 2006
By Barry
Exceptional. I have studied a lot of personal development and I must say this is one of those gems where you get some brilliant ideas AND the how to do it.
I find it amusing that a couple of reviewers are concerned that Michael Heppell uses the same stories as some other trainers. Where have they been! Jack Black takes most of his ideas from Sliva and Zig Zigglar and Robbins takes 90% of his from Jim Rohn and Richard Bandler. Then again Jim Rohn got a lot of his stuff from Napoleon Hill and Hill got lots of his from Orison Swett Marden (bet you’ve never heard of him)!
What Michael Heppell does (brilliantly) in his book is to take the ideas, concepts and strategies of classic personal develop (the stuff we know we need to do) and convinces the reader that they must do it.
It’s a long time since I’ve read a book that made me really take actions and that’s why it gets the big 5 stars from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars i have not stopped thinking about it! 12 Feb 2008
i am quite awful when it comes to self help books: i have about 20 of them at home and this is the only one i have actually finished because i wanted to. It was easy to read, very enjoyable, just as listening to someone talk to you.
for the first time EVER i took a pen and got down to doing the exercises: the goal settings, the values, the brilliant me, I did them all.
I have fallen in love with this book and the fast pace in which it is written. Micheal Heppel encourages the reader to take responsibilty to BE brilliant, to look into their beliefs and to make things right for you again in a easy to handle accessible way. I still think very often ofsome passages in the book that really hit home, such as a good job is the minimum expected of me. or september 2001 was a good time to fly.
this book has really touched me and has worked for me: i am half way through me 90 days plan and already things have changed around me.
I thouroughly recommend this book to any body would would like to make themselves brilliant!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars it does what it says on the packet 29 Mar 2007
This book is brilliant,its like having a personal toolbox in a diary.It tells you directly what you need to know and gives you the tools to accomplish it, without all the flowery nonsense of some American authors.A year after I reading it and I still dip into it.I have changed my life,the book is great tool to help you do this.

If you want sit on mountains and hear voices in your head, this book is not the one.

If you want take hold of this brilliant life and make it even more exciting read this book.
