Format: Paperback
This is a good book for mapping out all of your plans and goals in life - it has motivation, inspiration and also some tools for achoieving what you want. It doesn't leave out the spiritual part of life either which is rather nice - a different appraoch to personal development I have to say. A good planner to go along with this is the VISION `Life Diary 2009', it's a very good inspirational planner for the year ahead. The two of these together would kick the year off right!

Format: Paperback
This was on the reading list for my Uni course and when it arrived I was a bit hesitant to think that I will ever use it, as I am a mature student it reminded me of school text books. I have however used it for one of my essays and out of many books found it to be more useful that others.
I think that students just coming out of school or maybe even in college would appreciate the work book format more than I did as they can learn about developing their learning and motivations to learn through using this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is very good for somebody who it out of Uni, written in the same way as lecture material. However, this is not what I needed and therefore didn't answer all my questions and help me with writing personal development plan.

I 've been reading this book over the last month, still need more to finish all bits. this due firstly to the quality of language and topics addressed and secondly, to lots of activities and reflictions embeded within.
over all a key book for success.
