5.0 out of 5 stars The Winner's Bible - I love it. 13 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback
Being on the north side of forty, with 2 young children, a busy home life, no career to speak of and facing the challenge of going back out into the workplace I found I was lacking in confidence and having used self help books in the past, my instinct was to turn to a book again. After some research and finding the same old stuff written again and again I came across this book.

Once I started to read it I genuinely couldn't put it down. I loved the way it flowed from one section to another and that your were directed to read sections further on that had relevance at that point and then relevance further on in your 'journey'.

I use the 'over-used' word journey because that is truly what I believe I have been on. I have created my own bible, changed parts of it a few times already to compliment me as I grow into becoming more self confident and self aware.
If you need help understanding what you really want from life then buy this book today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard work but the results are worth it! 6 Sep 2010
By S. Lowe
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't usually write reviews but having read some very inaccurate 1 and 2 star reviews of this book I felt compelled to share my experience. Like many people I purchased this book after listening to Dr. Spackman on the radio. I have always been fascinated by sport, principally because of the obvious power that psychology plays at the highest levels of professional sport. I was interested to see whether the advice of a sports psychologist would work in my own life.

Dr. Spackman begins by explaining some basic psychology and neuroscience that underpins his techniques. The main purpose of the book is for the reader to construct their own Winner's Bible - a booklet with pictures and words that represent various aspects of your life that you wish to improve. The idea is to look through your own "Bible" every morning to help you achieve your goals. The book explains several techniques to help with this such as Fixed Visualisation and there is a brief introduction to Mind Mapping. Another important aspect of the book is an Online Audit, in which the reader asks several friends to anonymously outline their strengths and weaknesses through a web-based tool. This allows you to learn valuable lessons about yourself that your friends may not have the courage to tell you to your face!

The book is an interesting read in itself and I found that the best approach was to read the book once through before starting your own Winner's Bible, and then start again this time following the instructions in each chapter. To get the full benefit of the book does take a long time and an awful lot of hard work. Don't expect instant results! The online audit in particular takes a lot of courage to do. But I did find the process highly enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something new... 18 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
I have read a few self-help books in my time and like most people the commen complaint I have is that they rarely deliver what they promise. Saying that though, I have noticed incremental changes in myself because of the works of Paul McKenna, Michael Neill and Richard Bandler. I bought The Winners Bible because of the authors experience in both commercial and sporting environments. He seemed to have credence because of these experiences, so I thought I should take the plunge. Additionally, I have become a bit sick of NLPs gross hype.

My conlusion: A pleasant surprise. You have to do a lot of work with this. Not simply things like "close your eyes and imagine" but things like lists, deep thinking, an online audit and the construction of your own Winners Bible. I can certainly see why this works AND I like the authors experience in Neuroscience rather than pop psychology. I am still completing my bible but have read the book in its entirety and some of the smaller messages like how to organise yourself, how to keep hold of things you learn have already started to make a difference.

At this stage I can logically see why his Tools work. VERY few people can remain motivated for long extended periods of time. We normally need an incentive, like a GOAL or a influential person or a massive need and then after a short time we settle back into normal operating mode. I can see how your Winners Bible can serve as a 'refresher' or 'energiser' to keep us on the motivated path.
I can also see how the Goal setting works. Again, we need to aim for something real and and know where we stand to where we want to be.

What perhaps MOST appealed to me is that he offers a scientific explanation as to why we sometimes struggle in our daily life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well-known useless method, superb writing 23 July 2010
Format:Paperback
This book is about getting more out of life, feeling more happy and fulfilled.

Basically, Mr. Spackman's approach is nothing more than the good old "write down your goals, prioritise them, visualise them in detail". It's basically the same thing that is outlined in great detail in that ancient book by Raymond Hull... what was its title, "How to Get What You Want"? Anyway, I've been using this method a lot, so I know that it's no good.

Then why did I bother to even read this book? The answer is: because it's not immediately obvious that this book is the same old goal-setting/visualising. As a writer, Kerry Spackman is nothing short of a genius, because he has managed to flog a dead horse so that it's actually standing and neighing. I don't think it'll carry you any further than other dead horses, though.

This book is very, very inspiring. At first, Mr. Spackman explains sensibly how many other self-help approaches don't work and why. All the time I was reading it, I felt like exclaiming: yes, yes, that's exactly how it is, I love you, I've finally found someone who understands me and my frustration with all those nonsense book authors.
Then Mr. Spackman began to describe his own method. It quickly became apparent that I had done it all before, on a regular basis, for years, to very little avail. The funny thing is, though, that long after I had realised that, the book still felt great. I have done this goal-writing thing so much, but this book is so well written, so inspiring, so motivating, that I almost ended up giving that dead-end approach yet another try.

Apart from the fascinating introduction, there is one more thing in this book that is just plain brilliant (marketing-wise, not usefulness-wise). Mr. Spackman is using one ingenious trick.
