Love love it! Imagine most must book in self development in one 📚

Right so you are into self development and you might have read some other books before. But you are now looking for that extra to cement it all or you might not even have thought that.
This book is a homage to all previous books I have read and might read and is an amazing complied thought form by a gentle generous and well articulate well informed man, Jack Canfield. Thank you.
It’s a book with self helping tools that guide you to how to take control over your life - yes like so many other books - but this is a mix of différents schools and thoughts . Some people like X and some Y. Why does some talk to us and others not. They are very often equally equipped to teach us the meaning of life. I just happen to really like Jacks way of sharing and thinking about it all. I feel that I have a bit of Tony Robbins , mixed up with the Secret - adding in Some Abraham Hicks - real woo, and some Pranic healing - Indian energy healing - all in one - said so all can get it. Not mainstream so it’s dull but not to out there weird so it puts one off. For me it makes total sense . I love Tony Robbins and I am a firm believer of NLP and I also love the teachings of Master Choa Kok Sui, as well as so many other great men and women thinkers out there. For me - Jack has his own unique way of sharing his message and teaching and it’s very approachable and I just love it. I recommend this book to all who wants to go a bit further on the self development path! Good look ! To the moon!

Wants you to buy his bloody book to get "all" the principles

You buy this and are immediately short changed. Apparently, only "most" of his so-called success principles are on this audio. To get all of them you have to also buy his book! Carp. I'm going to return this half cocked audio.

outstanding

It's written, read and presented with very high vibes, even the interlude songs are high vibes. Very positive, reasoned, thoughtful, effective strategies. Has changed my life in 3 days, watching his YouTube channel too. also logical, easy to break down and do the strategies. Thanks to Mr Canfield for this help.

Great information but a little outdated

Great book, really interesting but I found it to be a little old school. That’s fine of course, I just found it a bit boring and expect a little more inspiring reading

Tone Deaf

Tone deaf and dangerous narrative. I love personal development and I'm all about taking ownership of your life and success; however I draw the line at blaming women for being abused by their partners and for pretending that racism and sexism doesn't affect success.
What the author is pushing here is an incredibly dangerous and out of touch narrative and I will be deleting this book from my library.

Hmmm

It is more of a tip book than a strategy book for implementing the principles

Good all round book

I found it quite slow, so listened at 1.5x speed. Jack ties in various concepts that I've heard before into a easy to understand narrative. There is much to do after listening to this book, found it inspirational and yet a little overwhelming.

A lot of steps to greatness

Some good advice in building a good life, though bit much outsourcing and conjuring in the universe for my liking. Think when you reach this many steps a different format could be good.
