    We are stuck, stymied, frustrated. But it needn't be this way. There is a formula for success that's been followed by the icons of history - from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant to Steve Jobs - a formula that let them turn obstacles into opportunities. Faced with impossible situations, they found the astounding triumphs we all seek.

    Controlling of emotion isn't a new topic. It's been talked about since human civilization amongst different schools of philosophies and religions. Yet this book still managed to be interesting and insightful.

    References of real people and stories


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Not having a code when reading.


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

    Nope, I learned to control my emotion :P


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, will recommend to friends.

    At last the classic CD audio programme is now available as a download. Are you ready to quit smoking once and for all? Do you want to quit, but worry you will gain weight? Would you like to stop cravings in moments? Are you tired of people telling you to quit? Are you worried about smoking damaging your health? Have you tried to quit before and failed? If quitting was easy would you do it today?

    The replacements of triggers and imaginary positive/negative reinforcement techniques have been proven effective, glad to see it's applied in quitting smoking.
