Product Description

Review

′This book is something everyone should read if they have little understanding of what is the next direction to go in.’ (Will Roney, February, 2012) ‘If you want to do something but secretly fear you’re never going to, then this book will help…inspire you to take action.’ (Flybe Magazine March 2012) ‘Do everything in this book and live the life you really want.’  (Talk Business Magazine, February 2012) ‘If you are ever to only read one book in this genre then this should be it.’ (Business Matters, July 2012)

Product Description

There’s never been a better time, or a more urgent time, to start doing the things you want to do.

Perhaps you feel your career is stuck in a rut – or maybe you’re in the wrong job altogether. Or maybe you have a great business idea but something is stopping you from actually getting started. You may already be running a business but struggling to get to it to where you want it to be. Or perhaps you just want to be more successful in general – without knowing exactly what your vision of success is - yet!

If you want to do something but secretly fear you’re never going to do it, whatever that might be, then this will help you.

Stop Talking, Start Doing is a short, clear and cleverly illustrated book that will inspire you to take action.   Whatever you want to achieve, this is the kick in the pants you need to get to where you truly want to be.

It’s great that you know you can do more, but just thinking about it, won’t make it happen. It’s doing that makes the difference. DO IT.  If you’ve got something you want to do… now is a good time to start.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Gruffalo is a better picture book 28 Mar 2013
By N.R
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There was nothing in this book that made me motivated and want to 'Stop Talking'. It made me want to talk more about how bloody rubbish it is. It's effectively a picture book for adults and if you removed said pictures then the text would probably only fill about twenty pages, ten of which are quotes. I suppose it's my own fault really that I didn't use the 'Look Inside' feature on Amazon - I just assumed that as it's not an art, photograpy book etc then I wouldn't be subject to the crap and utterly unnecessary illustations.

They say at the beginning that it was originally intended for business and you can tell. What the author's should've done is go the whole hog or not at all.

In fact the only motivational and thought provoking content comes from the quotes and not the authors.

All in all a very boring book that took me 2 hours to read. (And I'm not a fast reader).

1.0 out of 5 stars Random facts strewn together 12 Feb 2012
By Bassash
Format:Paperback
This book is a poorly cobbled together collection of random facts. It's centered around the vague notion that you can do "anything!!". One page honestly has these three facts in a row, under the heading "Unconventional is conventional" - how buildings have got taller in London, the fact that you kind find people with similar interests online and the fact that Chinese cities have more people in than ever. Really?!

How is this motivational? I think it's a cynical attempt to sell cheap inspiration with lots of quirky pictures and snippets of useless info. It's not even in proper prose.

Poor, poor, poor. Don't buy this and don't believe the multitude of 5 star reviews.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin... 24 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
Great book, full of inspiring information and quotes (from Pooh Bear as well as Einstein and Muhammad Ali), all packaged in an easy-to-read, easily accessible, good looking and friendly format. Excellent photographs, cartoons and diagrams that really get the messages across.

Some particularly interesting parts were the information on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs (presented in an easy to understand way, Benjamin Franklin's Daily Schedule - just amazing! and the chapter on Fear and Regret; really got me thinking.

As one of the other reviewers said - the type of book you would pick up again and again when feeling uninspired and needing that kick in the pants!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection for Procrastinators 10 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
As someone who perhaps spends too much time reading self development books I was expecting more of the same. This book is a brilliant surprise. It's modern in both its aesthetic and approach and is packed to the punch with practical advice. One of those products that you can keep in your bag for an injection of inspiration everyday. Not just for business minded folk but for anyone needing that kick up the butt to keep going when the going gets tough or you've lost your way. Great stuff!

4.0 out of 5 stars I definitely need a kick in the pants! 28 Aug 2013
By Olive
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Common sense, all of this. But commonality isn't always enough - sometimes we need somebody to be a wee bit rude to us and tell us to stop stalling and start doing (which this does). I would recommend this to everybody who is a would-be doer, a long-ago dider or a "I would put my toe in the water, but it's too cold(er)". Go on, be brave and start by reading this book...

4.0 out of 5 stars Kick in the Butt 10 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Short, savvy book full of practical tips to get going. And a user friendly book to boot... for that oh so needed kick in the butt. If you're a novice to these ideas, this is an ideal book for you. However, be warned... 'doing' means you taking action. So be prepared to go, go, go!
