Format: Paperback
I selected the Einstein quotation to serve as the title of this review because I became convinced long ago that people and the lives they live tend to be the result of the decisions they make. In casinos and in competitive athletics, for example, individuals can be "on a roll" or in what Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi characterizes as "flow." We can't miss, we can't lose, the force is with us. However, that same force can also produce negative, sometimes disastrous results.

Alice Schroeder selected The Snowball as a title for her biography of Warren Buffett because, when he was a boy growing up in Omaha, he observed a large ball-like shape rolling down a hill, gaining both size and speed as it moved along. He immediately recognized its implicit power. Positive compound interest remains among his core principles. For millions of others, negative compound interest (e.g. on credit card debt, "upside-down" mortgages) has created very serious problems.

For me, Darren Hardy's most important point in this book is this: All of the decisions people make (however "small" they may be) can have positive results if those decisions are guided and informed by what he calls The Compound Effect principle. Conversely, a minor cut that becomes infected and is neglected could eventually result in major surgery, perhaps even an amputation. In fact, Hardy insists - and I agree - there are no "minor" or "small" decisions if their potential implications and consequences are ignored. These are among the subjects that Hardy addresses in his book:

o How to win--every time! The No. 1 strategy to achieve any goal and triumph over any competitor, even if they're smarter, more talented or more experienced.

If you need a straight to the point guide on how to improve your life, then you cannot go wrong by starting with The Compound Effect. All the advice you will find in this book has been around for ages, therefore do not expect to learn anything new, yet credit to the writer who has managed to put together this material in an easy to follow manner.

You will learn to create positive habits, eliminate procrastination and set yourself challenging and achievable goals. We also bought the accompanying CD's, therefore, if you enjoy listening, opposed to reading, then you are in for a treat with the extra material and insights on offer.

It's also clear after reading the book and listening to the CD that the author walks his talk and more importantly, he sounds as though he is extremely passionate and sincere about sharing his teachings with the rest of us.

I read this book after someone recommended it and have to say it was an overall enjoyable experience. None of the concepts and techniques presented by Darren Hardy are revolutionary, they're all tried and tested methods. However, he brings them all together into a straightforward, easy to grasp manner and encourages the reader to make an immediate start. The only slight issue I have with the book are the references to Lance Armstrong. We now know that Armstrong was stripped of his Tour De France titles due to the doping accusations and subsequent findings. Unless Armstrong is drammatically cleared of any wrong doind then the references should be revised in any new releases. This is because there is the slightest chance that a given reader might assume it's necessary to take cheating or illegal measures to gain an advantage. Just saying! Anyway, buy the book, read it thoroughly and start putting in action whatever of the approaches works for you. i'm already realising some of the benefits.

I think almost anyone would find something positive to take from this book and implement in their lives. Much of the content is plain common sense, however sometimes it's good to see illustrations of how making small changes now can make a big impact on the future. The author seems authentic and really driven, and this enthusiasm makes the book a good read. Despite recent events, the Lance Armstrong quotes are still relevant.
This book can help bring hope and focus to anyone who is struggling with making their life a better place to be, even in adverse circumstances. The key is to action on the content. But as many changes can be small it's not about a painful upheaval of any kind - it shows how to pace changes in the parts of your life you can control, which can really create greater change over time. It's not a quick fix, but if you commit to it then you'll reap the rewards is the central message.

If ever you wanted a simple and powerful formula to motivate you to your dreams and goals then this is the best book I have read by far. Not complex, no excuse there. Not academic, easy to read on a bus or coffee shop, Not vague but step by step straight to the point. You know its time to stop making excuses when you read this book, as there are no decent excuses left that Mr Hardy hasn't already heard before. So now its just up to you. .. Of course you could just put the book down as a simple read, and then I suspect that you must have skipped a couple of crucial pages.

If you decide to implement the strategies suggested in the book as I have, you will be even more impressed with just how simple it is to be the better version of yourself. Thanks for the wake up call Mr Hardy. I feel SENSATIONAL
