3.0 out of 5 stars Okay but simplistic, 19 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maximum Achievement: Strategies and Skills That Will Unlock Your Hidden Powers to Succeed (Paperback)
Some pretty good advice in this but it seems to work best in the short term. You always feel inspired when you read these books and then it fades and you find yourself buying a similar book and repeating the process.
There is nothing really wrong with this book but it is a bit simplistic. Also he is a believer in the law of attraction but offers no evidence. Some of the examples are a bit weak as well.
It is strange that the authors of these types of books never seem to do anything but sell self help products. If there techniques worked wouldn't they be doing something better with their lives?

Good point well made. These books can inspire you to go for an 'idealised' lifestyle, and when nothing really changes, we can be left feeling empty; then we buy yet another book.

Clearly these people writing self help books are doing something right. You keep buying them and giving them money for doing what they do! ;)
