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!!

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.

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.

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.

This book is brilliant. I had an OMG moment once I grasped what Jeff Olson was teaching. It really works and looking back a year later, I'd recommend it to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Kept Secret of maybe not 1 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like to read books about success and about self development.
Some books are good, some are better, some are not worth your money.
I saw numerous very positive reviews about this book so I bought it.

When I started to read this book, I thought: three star book.
When I was reading further, I said: four star book.
And finally, I'm saying, five star book, definitely!

The thing about this book is, it's down to earth, not the blablabla of: Close your eyes and and you will have the stars in your hand.
On the contrary: I found it like every day of life is, tiny little decisions who will create together and over time a huge change.
It's like the butterfly that creates a storm at the other side of the world, you don't see it immediately and maybe it is not noticeable, but boy, what a storm it can create.
The reading is easy, the diagrams are easy and with the text you will be saying: yep this guy (author) has it all right.
Just take a look where you are now, compare it what you did in the past, does it match up? Of course it does!
Do you want to see changes? Of course you do! Otherwise you wouldn't be reading this, would you?

Now the big question, does it work, does the book contain value?

Big yes!

The big reason why I liked it is because it's written by somebody of the real world for the people in the real world.
For everyday people like you and me, students, workers, independents, unemployed persons, managers, for people with their big and small problems, but with their dream to evolves in their lives, really evolves in their lives, the 5% of all people if you know what I mean.

Is it the only book that you will ever need?
