Real, readable, and reaffirming,
This review is from: Switched on: You have it in you, you just need to switch it on (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A bit of a gem this book, in that it is a readable book, reaffirming most of what one already knows, but also revealing hidden possibilities and opportunities, whilst at the same time well grounded in the real world. There are a few well-known tidbits which may feel a slightly repetitive but they are presented in a non-patronising way and I suppose that these really can't be omitted from this genre of books.
The advice is mostly clear and logical, the style is easy and light, and there are a few real gems that serve to motivate and inspire in the background of the theme of optimism. It is also peppered with quotations from well-known and some not so well-known people, both contemporary and historic icons, which are not only insightful, but also fascinating!
The book fall exceeded my expectations. There are a quite a few lessons that I've picked up that I hope I will be able to utilise and implement! I think that the lesson may vary from reader to reader, but there is definitely something for everyone.
