This is a lovely 'easy to read' book that contains great messages for all walks of life. The author searched for the success ingredients of very different people - distilling their experiences and learning into some easy-to-apply tips - and in the process has produced a book that makes for a really practical read. If you're wondering how you can live to your true potential, no matter what your background or ambition, then 'How to Shine' is a great place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Changed My Life! 24 Feb 2014
By SMK - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I used to make fear based decisions and not take any risks at all. This book was a foundation for me to, literally, get on a 17 1/2 hour (2 plane exchange) International flight to Korea. And, I loved it! I loved flying, I loved the country, the culture, the people and I had the best time of my entire life. I gained confidence that no one can take away from me. And, I am fearless. I have peace and I believe in myself for the first time in my entire life. Now, literally, the whole world has opened up for me. I can go anywhere and I can do anything. I was a housewife and now I am getting training and a career and I'm independent. This book changed my life and I am forever grateful. A must read. The best money you will ever spend on a book. Seriously.
