    Would you consider the audio edition of 21 Great Ways to Manage Your Time and Double Your Productivity to be better than the print version?

    Possibly, but if you want a print version of something like this that just goes a bit deeper, purchase PUSH by Chalene Johnson. She uses Brian Tracy's advice and helps you put it into action.


    What other book might you compare 21 Great Ways to Manage Your Time and Double Your Productivity to and why?

    PUSH by Chalene Johnson.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, made me think and take action, but no extreme emotions.

    Great purchase for anyone feeling they need to be motivated!

  • How to Get What You Really, Really, Really, Really Want

    In this lecture, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer and Deepak Chopra, M.D., tell you how you can create anything you desire, if you really, really, really, really want it.

    By following four simple steps, Dr. Dyer teaches you how to reduce the time from when you decide what you want in your mind to when it actually manifests. As Dr. Dyer says, "What you think about expands, so think about what you want, not about what you don't want."

    What did you like best about How to Get What You Really, Really, Really, Really Want? What did you like least?

    I liked the advice, but truly if I would have known it was taped from a seminar they put together (sound isn't the greatest and sometimes hard to understand what they are saying) and that it was basically the same thing I learned from The Secret I wouldn't have purchased it.


    What aspect of Dr. Wayne W. Dyer and Deepak Chopra ’s performance would you have changed?

    That it wasn't just a copy from a seminar they did.


    Do you think How to Get What You Really, Really, Really, Really Want needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a drawn out version of The Secret...and I prefer The Secret.

  • The Referral Engine: Teaching Your Business to Market Itself

    The power of glitzy advertising and elaborate marketing campaigns is on the wane; word- of-mouth referrals are what drive business today. People trust the recommendation of a friend, family member, colleague, or even stranger with similar tastes over anything thrust at them by a faceless company. Most business owners believe that whether customers refer them is entirely out of their hands. But science shows that people can't help recommending products and services to their friends....

    Martha says: "Great book, easy read/listen, huge amount of info"
    "Had to shut it off."
    Overall

    I reached chapter 4 of this book and didn't have a single bit of information written down in my notebook of important things to remember and/or try.

    This book offered me nothing...I'm a small business owner in a tough market. There are all kinds of businesses like mine popping up each day. I was hoping this book would give me a few tid bits of information to help me with referrals. Instead I'm writing my first bad book review.

    I wouldn't recommend it to fellow business owners. Most of what I heard was common sense. I'm giving it 1 star because I have to.
