I was really disappointed by this book. I expected the no nonsense advice I hear from Dr Phil every time I watch his show but this book is very sinicle and almost mean. Maybe I should have read more but I didn't get past the first two chapters.
I read some reviews who said that it's all about himself so that I almost didn't buy it - I don't see it though, and I am glad that I got it. Of course, he uses examples of himself because that's how he learned and progressed. I like especially the chapter on the evil eight as I had hunches about the character of those people which have now put into words. I have always liked his clear language of not beating around the bush. I am learning from his book and am glad he wrote it.
Excellent discussion, with common sense advice, many good examples. I agree this book is to be listened to several times, because it's clear we need to duo better.
This book/audiobook is LIFE CHANGING. Not only has it opened my eyes and detailed/defined the "doormat" subconscious reality I have been dealing with/accepting my whole life (unfortunately), but I now have a much more clear understanding as to why it has and is still happening. In all honesty, I used to think that Dr. Phil was a "Crock-O-Crap" and fake doctor (which was most likely driven by the negative "MSM" I have witnessed against him), but after listening to his book I have gained an astronomical amount of respect for him. If you are fed up with how others are affecting your life and want to learn how to combat/remove/deal with such people, then this is the book to read/listen to. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars (it deserves a million). Thank you Dr. Phil (aka Dr. Bossman!).
Have a renewed interest in books after falling in love with audio books. I am listening to all different genres and exploring different authors.
My director recommended I read this book because I was deceived by one of my direct reports. It makes me sad how deceptive individuals can be and I feel I am more aware now. However, not sure if I am more aware based on my real-life experience or because of this book.
All time fave book series is Fear Street by R.L. Stine. I have read them all...I think.
The only thing I find negative is his approach to single moms..although I can appreciate him pointing out potential dangers...this book is read like he is actually talking to you which to me keeps your interest..
While reading the book you will be able to assess your life. Transformation comes right after.
It's a great self help book.
