The book's strength is its clear concise writing and easy to understand ideas. It aims to be inspirational and practical at the same time and mostly succeeds. Most of the information and ideas here come from the basic principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (or CBT) with aspects of Reality Therapy and other similar counselling approaches.
The whole 'frog' metaphor is continued from the previous book mentioned above. It's not a bad idea but it really begins to grate after a few chapters. Also the talk of frogs and handsome princes might be a little alienating for a male reader especially when combined with the liberal use of the female pronoun, although 'he' gets make some random appearances.
I did find some of the book's pronouncements to be a little too trite and simplisitic and in some cases I could immediately think of several compelling arguments as to why they just weren't true, or only true in some situations. I know the book aims to be short and snappy but some of the ideas are poorly developed and the authors are prone to unhelpful generalisations at times.
My biggest issue with the book is that the authors sneak in some of their own political and religious leanings at times, to no constructive effect. Comments disapproving of socialism and communism and a call to only admire and never criticise rich people hint at the authors having some personal issues of their own, and perhaps not always practicing what they preach regarding positivity and avoiding criticism and resentment.
There's also some risible abject nonsense about the Law of Attraction and positive force-fields that is just irresponsible and unprofessional considering one of the authors is a psychotherapist, who is otherwise promoting evidence-based methods. Surely a good editor should have removed some or all of the above?
Overall not as good as 'Eat That Frog' but not bad if you want a quick easy read to get you feeling more positive about life and yourself. It loses stars for some of its strange and random comments and the awful rubbish that I suspect comes from another popular self help bestseller.
I borrowed this book from the library, and Mind mapped the contents to remember them.
The book starts with 'Seven Truths About You', a morale boosting taster to spur you on.
There are 'Now Do This' action points throughout, and seven positive traits to enable you to get more out of life.
The book contains twelve short chapters, taking only a few hours to read.
The book, perhaps, necessarily with regards to the title, gets 'swamped', (excuse the pun), with negative emotions, eg worry, fear, anxieties. These topics take up around 80% of the content.
Kissing that frog may be necessary, but leaves a bitter after-taste.
