Firstly I want to address the issue of the negative vote. The vote is about whether the review is helpful, not whether you agree with the sentiments shared. Can I instead encourage you to engage in discussion with the reviewers. I have now done so to get the ball rolling. Personally I think that if you give one or two stars as a review for what I regard as arguably his best book then that is a harsh mark. Equally, a top mark may need justification as this book has the best presentation rather than the best content. Is my view right? No, it is just my view and sometimes one authors style just connects with some but not with others. What influences me may leave you cold. However, all of the people who have predated my review have genuinely bought the book and have given their own perspective freely and like me read over 300 pages at every available moment to provide a different view.Read more ›
The Edge, I believe has lost its way. What is it supposed to be, who is it aimed at? The research is in my opinion rock bottom with only a few anecdotes about successful people. The problem for Michael is that he is up against some really talented authors who have done serious research into their topics, e.g. Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell, Switch: How to change things when change is hard by Chip Heath & Dan Heath and 59 Seconds: Think a little, change a lot by Professor Richard Wiseman just to name a few and if you are keen on understanding more on 'Mindset' which Michael alluded to consider Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. All these authors are true experts in there field or have the ability to reference the experts in a readable and meaningful way. I think Michael is out out of his depth and hasn't undertaken much if any serious research to back up his claims.Read more ›
Yet, apart from the chapter entitled 'Asking Great Questions', I didn't really get much from the book. Perhaps, I've already read too much of the advice from other sources? As another reviewer has stated, I'm not sure who the book is aimed at. There are 32 chapters, but they lack depth; I would have preferred 5 to 7 chapters of memorable tips.
After reading, and occasionally referring to Flip It, I regrettably didn't take much away from this one. Don't let this put you off if you're reasonably new to this genre.
I have read several books on the way success leaves clues and 'The Edge how the best get better', is the clearest, most concise guide I've ever read on the subject.
The Edge: How the Best Get Better is one of those books that I know will be well thumbed as I find myself coming back to it time after time. Through the book, Michael has already challenged me to question how I approach/view certain things and I found the section on Asking Great Questions particularly helpful.
When you read it, I'm sure you'll find as I have done, that you are constantly checking to see what you're already doing and perhaps more pertinently, what you're not.
As ever with Michael's work, he makes no apology for challenging your thinking and crucially for reminding his readers that knowledge is wonderful but without action, it's wasted.
In my view, this is the best of Michael's work to date. Buy it.
