I really enjoyed this book that compiles in an easy language the main findings of the research on behaviour for success. Some people complained it was a very short book, but for me it's actually a very good point: you get in a short reading an introduction to the field, with references for further readings if you want to.

The reason I gave the book 5 stars as it explained very clearly exactly how to plan to achieve difficult and challenging goals in a way no other book has for me.
It also inspired me to read more books about goal setting.
The author has a very clear and warm writing style that is always inspiring and never lecturing as some books on traits of successful people are.

The book is a very short read and easy to take in. Each of the 9 "things" is put across clearly and concisely without all the added waffle that some authors throw into similar books. Highly recommend read for anyone looking to gain some insight into how they could increase their chances of success in whatever they take on.

Heidi Grant Halvorson has crafted a very easy to read book full of excellent strategies for success. Self belief is one aspect but as she points out to succeed there needs to be deliberate action focused on improving. This book can be read cover to cover in less than one hour and for anyone wanting to improve this will be an hour well spent.

A fantastic book if you're looking to improve performance.

I work in a sales driven environment, and over time have come to realise that books on organisation and actually doing things can be far more useful than books on sales.

It is the picking up the phone; it is the sitting down and planning calls; it is the continuous improvement that makes the difference.

This one of the most effective books on the topic.

A great length.
Easy to re-read.
Specific actions.
Not too much focus on the research (but enough for social proof!).

If I were to recommend two books to anyone starting out in life, or a career, it would be this and Seth Godin's 'The Dip'.

It's that good.

This book has been a game changer for me. It's given me simple framework to achieve my most important goals.

I immediately put the framework into practice and processed my big 5 goals for this year through it. I've got a clear vision on my goals but know through effort, important actions I will succeed!

I read this book in about an hour. While there were some good tips and insights for me it lacked depth. Good introduction in my view.

Fantastic book with really practical advice and some examples so you can set the tips in motion straight away. I agree with other reviewers that you should read it once and then go back had actually DO the tasks, but it's so inspiring. It is short, but concise and well written so I definitely think it's worth the money. Is a teaser for the longer book though, which I'm seriously considering shelling out for...
