A well researched, well written book. I have read many from this area and immediately noticed several others I have read have ripped of a lot of stuff from this one. Shawn writes with clarity and expertise and the book was easy to understand and the explanations of our perceptions and realities and their impact on our lives was excellent, as was the path to changing them. A life enhancing tool for sure. Also very applicable to life outside of business.

Great if you enjoy reading about research and how to better your work/career life, not so good if you're looking to improve your personal life. The references to work starting becoming monotonous after the second chapter....
