Some of the other reviewers are right the story itself is pretty straight forward and he's not going to win any awards for storytelling but it was the story telling nature of the book that made it easy to read, personally I think if someone had given me a bullet pointed slide deck of "rules" to follow or guidance, i'd have ignore it and moved on.
I'd also like to say that some of the advice in the book is rehashed and repetitive but that doesn't make it any less effective if you take the main points out of it. I wanted a business book and I got a less serious, more inspiring book than I had bargained for which has genuinely inspired me to make some changes in the way I live my life and conduct myself in this world.
Ask me again in 6 months if I am still following the guidance in this book? Well that remains to be see, I guess it's to be continued....
Unlike our story hero, Blake, I can't take a van full of information that's fed to me in one day and suddenly on Monday morning go about my life a completely new person having absorbed everything that I heard on the previous Friday... please.
Again - just give me the information like an adult and let me do with it what I will.
. It's a child like story (Adult's will cringe)
. The characters are pretty appalling and you will not aspire to be like them.
. The message is rushed, you barely have time to digest.
. It teaches us to enjoy our current work/jobs and be the greatest at it. ( what if we have dreams of being far much more than we are?)What if we are working towards a goal? What if the whole reason to be more, is because we can't stand our jobs. Im not getting the message in this book)
. To many acronyms. And although everyone likes a good acronym, at least have ones that are catchy and make sense.
Anyways I read a lot of self-help and spiritual books, business. I have read over 200 kinds from different authors. There are plenty of better ones out there. And if you don't tale my word for it, there just find out for yourself.
It conveys the messages with simplicity. I see people complaining about the acronyms, Don't forget there are many personality types so what doesn't mean anything to you might help someone else. The book was written to fit as many people as possible which is why it feels a bit "childish".
As when I'm reading books I'm focused in extracting useful information, I simply ignore anything that I can't use. Found the book quite good and worth reading more than once.
If you buy but don't like it, I suggest you give it to someone you know who has a different type of personality and see if they like it. :-)
