I have been a student of Personal Development for a while and I have read many books that talk about how 'this ancient secret will transform your life in an instant' or 'meditate on the things you want and supernaturally they appear'. These books do not give practical, tangible solutions and leave many readers frustrated with only the author 'growing rich and happy' at the readers literal expense.

This book however is a rarity and potentially one of the best books I have ever read.

Jeff Olson writes this book in a succinct, clear and down to Earth way. He's obviously a millionaire but what I particular like about this book is that he does not shove it down your throat ever 2 lines.

So what is The Slight Edge? The premise of the book is simple: There is an invisible force that is evoked with every single decision and action that we take, good or bad, big or small. This force is never in neutral so if we constantly make loads of good decisions daily, this will lead us to wealth, happiness and success in our lives or if we make loads of minor errors in our daily routines, given enough time, this will compound into financial meltdown, potentially poor health and general misery.

Common sense so far right? But not common practice! What Jeff Olson argues is that societies around the world have been bamboozled into thinking that success is this instantaneous, miraculous, mystical event that only happens to a select few lucky people but when you really take a closer a look at people whom are successful and stay successful, it's the many, many tiny disciplines that they have fostered in their daily routine that have compounded over time to get them to top and vice-versa for tragic failures.

Inspiring but painfully repetitive. Each chapter could be divided by four, as the author keeps repeating th exact same thing over and over again. A shame because the message is great, but this unnecessary repeating makes the book a little boring. I also felt like the statements of fans of the Slight Edge were not adding anything to the book. They do not really talk about how the slight edge helped them but merely say "i wasnt doing great in my job/life/relationships, but i started applying the slight edge and now im much more successful". This is just too superficial. They do not talk about the specific problems they had or how the slight edge actually helped them. Just that it did. It sounds like some poor promotion for a miracle solution on late night tv.

I like the idea, and generally the book is a good read too.
After saying all through the book that the slight edge is about easy things you can do almost without noticing them which will add up over time, at the end he comes up with a list of 7 areas to which you should apply the slight edge every day - if you were to do all these, it would take up half your day every day, which seems fairly silly.
So a good fundamental idea, and a good read, but personally I wouldn't follow his detailed instructions, which just seem to have been put in as filler anyway.

I find the style of the book quite irritating. It seems to have been written for people who left school at age 10. It's very shmaltzy and American - full of stories about how if you keep doing the same thing over and over and over and over, eventually, you'll be successful! In fact, that's the book in a nutshell: just keep doing whatever it is you know you should be doing - and then you'll be happy and successful beyond your wildest dreams. A tad simplistic? Of course, it does make sense to do what I know I should do - financially, workwise, etc; etc; - but I just feel that the author downplays the darker side of human nature which can so easily sabotage our best intentions. For instance, addicts of all kinds understand that their behaviour is not helping them or those around them - but struggle to change their behaviour. I think the author needs to engage with that darker 'edge' of the psyche which just doesn't respond to post-in note slogans telling me to 'Do the thing, and you'll have the power' (or whatever it was). Maybe I'm a pessimist, but I think that change is a hard process, and that is rather glossed over here.

I have been striving for success for many years, and read score's of books to help me in the process. I have attended seminars, !listened to webinars, but it still hadn't worked for me.
I was recommended The Slight Edge by someone I connected with on Facebook, and it has been the ultimate game changer for me.
The best way to describe this book is that is was the missing piece of the puzzle which brought everything I had read so fat to a point where it all made sense and could be applied effectively through The Slight Edge.

This really is an outstanding book. Yes, it's repetitive, but I think that was the point, it really drills home the basics so you don;t forget what it is you have to do. How many time have you read something and thought 'Wow, great idea' then 20 pages later forgotten what that was?

The beauty for me was turning the mundane tasks into positive or negative choices, rather than things you must do. You can not not do them if you like, but as long as you understand that it has negative effects.

I'm only a third of the way through the book and I felt absolutely compelled to review and thank the author as I have woken up this morning and decided to go play in a rugby tournament that all week I have been thinking of an excuse not to attend. It really is a 5 star, straight talking reality check.
