This review is from: You Can Have What You Want (Paperback)
I started reading late on the night I bought it and ended up staying up for hours until I'd finished the first section of the book. Wow! And I mean, Wow! I finally put the book down in the wee hours of the morning.
There are several easy, useful and enlightening exercises within and above all it is easy. Easy to read, easy to understand, no jargon, lots of metaphors, simple ideas which are easy to grasp. It's written using NLP skills, hypnotic language and lots of Michael's light-hearted, affable, humorous, non-judgemental personality. It gets to the heart of the matter very quickly.
It is the kind of book you almost want to race through, you want to read everything because so much resonates so quickly and then towards the end you slow down because you don't want to finish. Once you're finished you put it down and go about your life as normal, only it's not, (normal that is, not that there's such a thing as normal but you know what I mean) and you realise that you feel more motivated, energised and confident but the beauty of it is that it's not a big explosion, it's subtle change and it's elegant and totally capable of becoming the norm in your life. For all the subtlety it's no less powerful.
After a motivational/self-help seminar you may feel psyched and invincible, after reading this book you know that your limitations have shrivelled into completely manageable bite size pieces. Now, a few weeks after reading it, the effects are still here and completely integrated into my life.
