5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet book 13 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this short book within a space of an hour. It is straight to the point, and is written in the style of a story. The author is a US Physical Therapist and tells the story of when he was a student and he visited a senior Physical Therapist in a hospital as part of his training. He learned how to motivate someone within 60 seconds to undertake therapy by increasing importance + confidence in the patient. Although this book was essentially about how someone was able to increase his patients' motivation, this can also be applied to other areas of your life - for any goal. It is an easily understandable read and if you are looking for a way to increase motivation quick then look no further than this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars my missing link 18 Oct 2006
By jimbvis
Having read Jim Johnson's No Beach No Zone weight loss book, I knew WHAT to do, plain and simple, and WHY it was important. So why wasn't I doing what the book laid out as a proven plan for weight loss? It's all about motivation. There's even a chapter on motivation in his weight loss book - but this book takes it one step further, into the science of motivation. Personally I think both books dovetail into one another well, especially if your lack of motivation happens to be in the field of losing weight. The science of how to lose weight permanently, and the science of motivating yourself to do anything. Once again, this is all based on research and not what one guy thinks.

One of the best surprises about this book is the way it is written. Without giving away too much, I can tell you that this book is more of a story than a collection of facts, and reads almost like a mystery. One thing's for sure, it's extremely engaging. I read the whole think in one sitting; the research and strategy don't take volumes to explain or lay out. I'm not one to read huge volumes, and Jim Johnson always makes a concise read devoid of medical mumbo-jumbo. The actual motivation chart takes up one page and really makes you think about what makes your own self "tick". The only excuse for not getting motivated is if you aren't willing to give up one hour of your time, and a little more time spent thinking straight.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sixty Second Motivator - Book Review 3 July 2007
Both my husband and I enjoyed this book a lot. We found it to be a neat, well organized little book written in an easy-to-understand, straight-forward style that is genuinely enjoyable while at the same time providing valuable insights about why we do or do not do things. While we found it quite analytical about key factors concerning motivation, the book didn't make us feel intimidated or "preached at". The tone of the book came across to us as friendly, low-key, very helpful, analytical and a valuable "keeper" to refer to in life's future situations.

1.0 out of 5 stars Motivated me to write a bad review! 15 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
'A book that will change your life!' the cover boasts. What a load of rubbish. This book is just common sense, but there is nothing in it that will actually motivate you, it is just summarising things you already know. As already stated by a previous reviewer, the 2 secrets are :- Increase Importance and Confidence. The tip for losing weight goes as follows, quote :-
'A good example of this is telling someone to walk a little every day because it will keep them healthy. What if I told you that walking a little every day could also help you get that extra fat off your stomach and thighs? Then, what if I told you you might also start getting more looks and attention from the opposite sex?'
I know all that and it has never motivated me to lose weight!!! If you're hoping to be motivated into weight loss, don't bother because that's it! There are no revelations in this book and it was just a waste of an hour, reading a story that was obviously meant to wow but instead just irritated.
He also needs to get a better proof reader as the book was littered with mistakes that only added to my annoyance.
