5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, highly recommended..., 17 Feb. 2011
This review is from: 59 Seconds: Think a little, change a lot (Paperback)
I purchased this book after coming across a review for it online and noting that Derren Brown had endorsed it. I have spent quite a while reading self help books, book on NLP and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. However, I was drawn to Derren Brown's quote of `A triumph of scientifically proven advice over misleading myths of self-help'. This quote alone sums up the book. The opening page is excellent and got me hooked straight away. I have never been one for reading and sometimes find it hard to get into a book with a more complex factual subject matter. But I have to say that this book is very clearly written and easy to follow.

I have always thought that the hardest thing for any human to do is to conquer their own mind. This book helps you understand and break down hard coded negative thought patterns in a way to produce positive results in your life. And best of all, it is not done in a wishy washy way - it is done using solid science and a slice of realism, followed by an incentive to take clear action and positive steps.

I have personally made book marks and notes all over the book and I keep it in my work bag as a reference point. I know this may be a little excessive but for me at this point in my life, it is just what I need to help me achieve the goals which lead me to the world of self help in the first place. Just to finish - I have to add that there is a subtle touch of humour within this book and overall it does not get too hard core but still remains very effective. I would highly recommend this book and see no reason to give it anything over than 5 out of 5. It depends on what you are looking for I guess but I'll be surprised anyone would be truly disappointed. Great price too! Hope this helps, enjoy!
