I had always learned that in order to change a habit one had to have lots of emotional leverage, but it really doesn't require all that. It's just a little "tweak" in behavior that makes a huge difference. Great to learn!
Can't wait till the movie comes out! The story is written so well, you lost yourself in it.
While I have read many books on the subject, Sharma articulates "Leadership" in a more succinct way--you get a lot for it being such a short read. I'd recommend it to anyone.
While I very much enjoy learning history and true stories that provide insight, this was a great story worthy of a book. However, some of the details drag, but it's still a great story.
I'd read anything about how Malcolm Gladwell processes stuff. In this interview, he tells us how he himself chooses books---I took it to be great advice.
He articulates concepts I've always wanted to learn in such a way any layman can grasp.
I have already given the hard copy of this book to people as as gift.
It gives you real meat--no rambling, just pure applications to grow one's willpower.
don't think so
it would be a documentary, but "willpower", "will not power"--you put in text everything you want people to remember. (I'm in marketing)
Self growth starts here
This information was amazing, but I feel it should also be marketed as an effective Time Management Tool. I've read and applied at least 5 time management tools--this one is what I consider to be the best.
This is the first time I've read an autobiography and disliked the person it was about. Progress or success is NEVER an excuse to treat people badly.
If you've read Malcolm Gladwell's "Blink" or if you've read "Your Brain at Work" by David Rock---you don't need to read or listen to this book. The others tell this story better. This reads like a text book for the 70's.
To finish a book, I have to be engaged enough. I have began many books with much more interesting topics, but not finish them. Coelho keeps you engaged.
