Flip It is much more than a way of thinking; it's a way of acting and doing.

I really enjoyed the way this book moves way beyond simple positive thinking ideas (as seen in many other books) and gives practical examples of things to actually do. I'm of the belief that if you want great things to happen then you have to take action to make them happen. Michael Heppell appears to agree. The challenge I've always had is the motivation and a simple way to make that happen... until now.

Flip It is split in to 10 main sections topped and tailed with an introduction and a quirky `end bit'. They are:

1 Finding Flip It. This gives a quick introduction to the concept, it's easy to grasp and apply with some quick results. I found myself using one idea immediately.

2) Flip It for confidence and happiness. I love the story here about ordering the same takeaway month after month (I'm guilty) and the example from the world of sport where a player keeps missing passes and how a sports coach fixed it.

2) Flip It for friends, family and love. This book was worth it alone for the `Friends Grid' idea. What a wake up call.

4) Flip IT for health. At last I thought a realistic guide to health. Eat Well, Think Well & Move Well makes sense to me. Not sure about the vinegar idea though too high risk for me.

5) Flip It for Money. This chapter takes a more serious approach to a serious subject. I found myself wincing at times at the descriptions of people who have money issues - too close to home perhaps?

6) Flip It for success. Again there are dozens of ideas here, some which strike a chord straight away and others which need a little more thinking (from the reader). Rock to Resolution seems almost too good to be true, is it?

Approaching this self-help book with an open mind, I was disappointed, primarily, with its patronising tone. It is full of familiar concepts eg 'Men are from Mars', leave your hunter gatherer alone for a hour after he comes home from a hard day's work....and several positive psychology and cognitive therapy practices.
Strange as it may seem, women are able to build flat pack furniture on their own, contrary to suggestions in this book. Another chapter advises sorting through your friedships. Would anyone really chart their friends along the axes Heppel suggests?
I do think, however, that there are a few handy hints which anyone could utilise to promote a little more positivity in their life, for instance, looking at problems as challenges or using 'How can I succeed at this?' rather than 'I can't do it'. A bit of common sense really.
The overriding sense throughout, nonetheless, is one of easy money, Heppel regurgatating old themes for vulnerable and/or gullible people. Even his video reminds me of one of those evangelical 'religious' leaders with their own TV channels, dripping in gold. Beware.

This book has an amazing cover; it's a lovely blue colour and the little cloud and sunshine motif are very pretty.

The idea behind the book is simple enough too. Focus on the positive and choose the way you look at situations. Unfortunately, however, I felt a little disappointed, like a fast food meal that I wolfed down and then felt insufficiently nourished by. Positive thinking alone isn't enough to help me and I wanted something a little more substantial.

I am sure that the author is able to sustain his mood and buoy his spirits, but the lessons didn't come across as useful and usable to me, I am sorry to say. I am somewhat disappointed as I read one of his previous books and thought it rather good.

Funny, I posted a review for this book last week, and it's disappeared from the site! Anyway, I've 'flipped' my disappointment at this discovery and decided to post another! Only read this for my book group, it's the same stuff that motivational 'gurus' have been spouting in their books and on their courses for years! Thought it was written in a condescending style too....."when your wife talks about her shenanigans"....... Certainly didn't live up to the hype!

Flip It - a terrific book. A really accessible read packed with ideas and strategies that you can put into action straight away. Don't be deceived though. The simplicity doesn't mean the content is trivial. There's some really powerful things here that when implemented will have quite dramatic results. Respectful of your time, Michael Heppell has organised the book in such a way that you can pick it up time and again for a cracking jolt to the way you think about situations. I have no problem in recommending this book.

An amazing book. Great to dip in and out of for people who have limited time to read and sit down to digest. You can read a page and get on with your life whilst trying to take the very simple but effective advice on board. Delivered in a quick easy to read manner, however not for those looking for a more in depth advice book. Highly recommended.
