Product Description

Why is it that some people make dream after dream come true, while others just continue dreaming and spend their lives building dreams for someone else? One simple reason: those that are "successful" have found their SLIGHT EDGE! The Slight Edge is not just another self-help, motivation tool of methods you must learn in order to make it up the path of success. It simply shows you how to create powerful results from the simple daily activities of your life, by using tools that are already within you. What do you need to make that happen? Discover that one thing that will help you achieve that goal, realize a life-long dream or propel you up the ladder to success. Once you've got it, then you will discover how your philosophy... creates your attitude... creates your actions... creates your results... creates YOUR LIFE! The Slight Edge is a way of thinking, a way of processing information that enables you to make the daily choices that will lead you to the success you desire. The Slight Edge is "the key" that will make all the other how-to books and self-help information that you read, watch and hear actually work.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!! 9 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book will get your life on track! Listen, do, listen again! You can't go wrong! Amazing and well worth the investment! For serious people! This is for you!! Just follow and repeat the process! Yes it's basically the same review I wrote for the compound effect. But it's true. They bothe similar and both logical and make sense. Just read, do, read, do until you get there.
Don't listen to those who say after x months it's no good. They are blaming the book for their own mistakes. They obviously stopped reading the book or stopped doing the actions. For those who are serious and are willing to take FULL RESPONSIBILTY for your life and success. This is for you!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The bible of living 19 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book. Really enjoyed it. Re-introduces baby steps approach to life, which most of us know intuitively but do not do it on purpose. Definitely top 4 books I have read on personal development. Lots went into it. Some truly great people like Jim Rohn influenced it. It is the bible of personal development.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just another feel good book 28 April 2013
By Karim
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Slight Edge revolves around a simple idea: the simple things we do each day, repeated over time will lead to success (or failure) - eat healthily for a long period of time and you will be healthy. Eat junk for a long period of time and you will get very unhealthy, even though it won't show immediately; this is the Slight Edge and it can work for or against you.

The second part of the book is an effort at explaining how to apply the Slight Edge to your life as well as other advices you can find in other self help books such as writing down your life goals or "plan, do, review" (i.e. iterate through trial and error)

Even though the book wasn't a bad read, several months after reading it, I think it is not great either. The author gives a few examples on how to apply the Slight Edge. The main one, repeated several times in the book, is reading 10 pages of a good book every day. If you are already an avid reader, this isn't much. I find myself reading this book, feeling good about it but in practical terms, I failed to apply it or even figure out how to apply the Slight Edge to my life goals. The "Slight Edge" is a "feel good" book rather than a good book. The book, like many self-help books, has also a tendency to make you feel guilty if you do the wrong things or think the wrong way. Other books convinced me it is the wrong approach to make people do something.

Very few self-help books are worth the money and the time you spend reading them and sadly, this one is no exception. Instead, I would recommend reading books based on psychology and research. Two books I found useful and actually helped me: The "Now Habit: A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination and Enjoying Guilt-free Play" by Neil Fiore and "Mastery" by Robert Greene.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible book and fake reviews! 6 Mar 2012
By Tim
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to reading this book after reading all the positive reviews of both this book and the old version. This book is terrible, just incredible terrible. I mean, the content of the book is true but the book is packed full of positive reviews both here on amazon and printed in the book on page after page. I would guess that the book consist of about 100 reviews that say "the Slight Edge principle did all these fantastic things to my life". Most of those reviews are saying just as little as those reviews here on amazon. They dont tell what they used the slight edge on or how but just that it changed their live. I dont understand why to include 100 reviews in a book that fills a quarter of the content of the book. Many of the reviews are fake. The one from "Knowledge is King" is the bookstore that actually sells this book and they give you a flyer with their details when you buy this book (google them if you dont trust me).

Next topic. The author owns a multi million dollar company that sells personal development books. I would guess he uses the Slight Edge principle 25 times in the book to tell the reader that if you read more personal development books you will change your life. And give a bunch to your family and friends too. Of course he says this to sell more books himself. It seems silly to keep reading that if I just read 10 pages a day it will add up to 3650 pages a year.

The book have a hell of a lot of promotion of other books and shoulder clapping telling how great all these other big authors are. There are review after review of other books and he encourage you to read them all. He even included a two page appendix in the back of the book to remind you to go to his store and buy them.

You may be wondering what the slight edge is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book of its kind I've ever read 23 Oct 2011
I've been reading "self-help" books for more than 20 years now but none has ever approached the subject of success in life from this angle. Almost on every page I found my heart saying "Yes!!!". Olson puts into words what each of us knows deep down inside and says it in a way that wakes you up to a practical, workable path to walk on. If you've read Napoleon Hill, Og Mandino, Wayne Dyer, etc, YOU NEED TO READ JEFF OLSON (The Slight Edge)!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Slight Edge 18 Sep 2011
WOW a great book with the philosophy, principles and practical steps to integrate into your behaviour and your life. Lots of success stories. A book that helps you realise that you don't have to be an exceptional person to be successful, and in achieving success you become exceptional. A must buy for everyone. Good for teenagers setting out in life, letting them know that they can make it happen.
