On the plus side, there is some good advice in this book, albeit relatively obvious stuff that most people will have heard before - eat a little less every day and you'll likely lose weight; walk a bit more every day and you'll likely get fitter; save a little bit of money every day and you'll likely build up some savings, etc.. Combine all these things together and you'll have an awesome life.
However, it becomes apparent through the book that there is "something more" on offer, and the hints get more and more blatant as the book goes on, referencing other books / websites / programmes. The closing paragraph is a very blatant suggestion that you should go buy 5 more copies of the book and give them to your friends, because, you know, sharing is winning. If you visit the suggested website for the "free templates", there is a very enticing offer to join a "live webinar", exclusive to you, because you're special. And by an amazing coincidence, this invitation-only exclusive webinar happens to start within about 30 minutes of you reading about it, better click that register button quick... And OMG, I never felt so sullied watching the "live" webinar - it was obvious what was going on but I was fascinated to watch to the end to see how bad it got. It was the worst (or best?!) of clichéd double-glazing sales tactics, the kind where once you've let them into your house, they'll never leave and never stop talking and the amazing exclusive deal is only available if you sign RIGHT NOW. And what's more, because you're so amazing and you're a winner, right, and he really likes you, he's going to offer you this extra package, worth THOUSANDS, for free. And another one. And another one. Aaaaaand another one, holy cow he goes on and on and on. And then we get "you're a winner just for being here, but real winners take ACTION, not like all the losers who don't take action. Are YOU a winner or a loser? I just know you're a winner, so show me by taking action. Take action now and give me $2000 for the full programme with all this amazing free stuff worth $10000 !!!!" I was enthralled at the shamelessness. And was happy to walk away a loser (in his eyes).
It helps you understand how a great habit kept consistent will bring you very far. I will also recommend this book to those who are thinking to lose weight in the long term.
The way Darren Hardy portrays his own example in real life is an eye opener.
