More About the Author

Robin Nixon has been a writer for 30 years, has written in excess of 500 articles for many of the UK's top magazines, and has authored over 20 books.

Robin started his writing career in the Cheshire homes for disabled people, where he was responsible for setting up computer rooms in a number of residential homes, evaluating and tailoring hardware and software so that disabled people could use the new technology, and writing supporting documentation and articles for a selection of national magazines.

After this Robin's career became a hundred percent writing-oriented when he joined a large magazine publisher, where he held a variety of different editorial positions, before leaving to become a self-employed writer.

With the dawn of the Internet in the 1990s, Robin branched out into developing websites (including the world's first licensed Internet radio station). In order to enable people to continue to surf while listening, Robin also developed the first known pop-up windows.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s Robin and his family moved to the USA a couple of times, once to run a web design company in California, and then again to set up an English Tearoom in Texas. In between times they ran several successful pubs, bed and breakfasts and nightclubs in England.

In recent years Robin has begun to focus more closely on motivation and personal improvement in his writing, while still continuing to produce more in his popular series of books on computing, which have now been translated into several different languages.

Robin lives on the south-east coast of England (where he writes full time), along with his five children and wife Julie (a trained nurse and university lecturer) - between them they also foster three disabled children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful book 9 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book has the sub title of `Using Visualisation to achieve your goals' but it is actually more than just another book about visualisation. It is written in an easy conversational style which draws the reader in as though the author is a friend sitting next to you and telling you how you can achieve what you want both at home and at work. There are chapters about body language, practicing patience and perseverance, learning to relax and taking pride.

If you read many self help and self improvement books then you will be familiar with many of the concepts covered in this book but it is still useful to have them all in one place and distilled down to their basic essence. Each chapter starts with a few lines summing up the topic covered in that chapter. There are instructions in easy steps which stand out from the text as they have a different background. If you just want to concentrate on one particular idea then you can just read the appropriate chapter as each chapter is self contained and can be read in isolation.

Other authors are referred to in the text and there is an index but no bibliography. If you want a simple self help book which covers most of the current popular ideas about goal setting and visualisation then you will find this book useful

Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a pleasant and easy read- over 250 pages, but you can get through it in a few hours (assuming you don't stop to do each exercise along the way)

The good points:
- full of practical suggestions to help you achieve your goals, gain self confidence, find more effective ways of dealing with troublesome situations, stop procrastinating, be a more effective leader, etc
- it's clearly laid-out, well - structured, and each section has a practical exercise related to the section objectives
- the author has a good, no-nonsense style, and provides an evidence-based approach. This is a nice change for a book which claims to be about visualisation; most of them are very spiritually oriented.

As a minus, i'd say it's actually more of an 'affirmations' than a 'visualisations' book, and I did start to get the feeling that you could end up spending hours every day making affirmations rather than doing anything. It also didn't give a huge amount of advice on how to visualise more effectively (ie, for people who may have trouble visualising)

Overall though, a good practical book with a common sense approach.

This is the book on success and achievement and goal-setting and visualisation. The Author goes through step by step how you can improve your confidence, your attitute, your management and selling skills, how to lose weight, how to become a better parent, how to get promoted and even become an entrepreneur and start your own business. All by the power of visualisation and goal-setting. I have read and studied this book several times. And Each time I go back to the book I get something different from the book. Beg,borrow or even better BUY A COPYRIGHT NOW!!! ITS FANTASTIC VALUE FOR MONEY!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe, 20 Jan 2013
By Flickering Ember TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I liked the organised and energetic approach of this book. Each chapter starts off by outlining what you will achieve, and then sets about making this happen. It's enthusiastic and full of energy and is genuinely motivational.

It is a bit simplistic, yet it is also, it seems, aimed at really ambitious, high-flying people. For some people, this will be ideal because it's easy to dip in and out of.

For me, it fell a bit short of the mark as I found it motivated me to an extent but some of the goals were irrelevant to me, and the overall content wasn't quite as in-depth as I'd like.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Rather Than Inspirational 28 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have read quite a number of self help type books over the years. The emphasis of Yes I Can is on using creative visualisation in order to achieve your goals. This is a tried and tested technique, which has worked for many. For example, many professional sportsmen mentally rehearse that perfect golf shot, tennis match or goal and believe that it helps them to achieve the same in real life.

It is hard to argue with the message that this book is putting across and, whilst nothing here is a revelation, it does no harm to be reminded of stepping stones that can be used to help to achieve ones goals in life. This message is split down into 22 chapters, each of which considers one of these steps. However, we are urged at virtually every stage to `visualise this' as part of the process to succeed in accomplishing the step. Examples of the steps to be taken are standing up for yourself, leading from the front and encouraging creativity.

The first book which I read on creative visualisation was the book of that name by Shakti Gawain. At the time I did find this book a revelation and inspirational. I still have that book and the influence it had on me is shown by the fact that it has survived many culls of my library in the intervening years. Creative visualisation certainly does work, though it is not entirely clear why. Part of it is presumably the placebo effect which the author of this book alludes to more than once. Part of it may be that you are mentally practicing what you later attempt in real life. Additionally perhaps there may be even more to it than that. In any case if you are interested in learning more about creative visualisation you really will benefit from reading
