I saw this mentioned as the Guardian's Book of the Week and winced (where do they get these titles?). But some of the tips and ideas are well worth trying. They've got a wide range of techniques (drawn from NLP, I suppose) for putting more oomph into your life and getting more satisfaction out of your work and relationships. And, for once, you can tell it's not all American situations and examples. Could be a classic, if enough people give these things a try.

Based on Neuro-Linguistic Programming (not planning! as in the amazon blurb), but stripped of all the jargon, this book provides the reader with some simple approaches to managing life's ups and downs and changes. I particularly liked the way the book gives you advice which can be immediately put into practice (as against the pull-your-socks-up, motherhood-and-apple-pie statements so often found in self help books). For example, there's a great section on shaping your career which includes how to write the CV for the (as yet maybe not in existence) job you really want. The book is illustrated by the authors' real life experiences.

As I said, it's a fab, easy-to-read guide to NLP and ideal for absolutely anyone, no matter what you do or don't do for a living! It's useful for personal and professional life and extremely reader-friendly... no difficult mumbo jumbo language. You don't need to know anything about NLP at all to relate to this book.
