2.0 out of 5 stars He really should credit Tony Robbins!, 29 Sep 2011
This review is from: Brilliant Life: How to Live a Brilliant, Balanced Life (Paperback)
Perhaps this book should be called "Pretty good but mediocre life". For example apart from one brief nod to the self-employed, the Career section is aimed at making you a better (though rather slow) corporate greasy pole climber. But surely there must be more to life than middle management!

The tone of the book is pretty patronising, and the tips such as written goals are largely old chestnuts. And do you need to be told it may be a good idea to read a book on a train journey?

A lot of the practical stuff and ideas seem to have been derived from Anthony Robbins' "Awaken the Giant Within In" which is a self-improvement classic. A pity that there was no acknowledgement of Robbins' work.

Having said that, it is always good to pick up a self-development book from time to time and take a look at where you are and what you can do to improve your relationships, financial affairs, etc.

My own self-development tip - check out "Awaken the Giant Within"...
