I admit, I ordered this book not only for content, but because I love the author/narrator's accent. The book was encouraging, and gives many ideas for changing our perception of any situation and keeping a positive outlook on life. If you need a pep talk, this is a great book.
Seemed fairly obvious that Heppell's trying to attract the anti-The Secret crowd by implying "I'm not one of 'them'." But, to a certain extent, he is.
If I had to summarize his main point: don't ever be defeatist! Still, there are echoes of "thoughts are things" and he ends with advice to use a pendulum to find lost objects. I don't have a problem with that, but wanted to head off folks later claiming they were expecting something some "scientific" (psychology).
Value? Good, but not great.
I have read all Michael Heppells books and this is right up there with the best. He's like the renegade magician that wants to tell the world how they perform their tricks.
In this book Heppell wants to tell the reader how to coach herself easily and successfully, and he does!
He uses some incredibly powerful techniques that I use with clients to good effect, but delivers them in a very easy to understand manner so that anybody can benefit.
Flip It is a very cool resource for anybody that wants to flip their life around and get better results in all areas. Oh, and it'll also make you laugh, so what's not to love about that?
This is real lowest common denominator stuff written and read in a rather patronizing manor. Go and check out some of Brian Tracy's stuff instead
However if your in a dole Que it might really help.
Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
What ever is wrong, just 'flip it' and work it from that side. Sound advice as there is no good or bad, just what man puts an interpretation to. Use your weakness, faults and failures to actually rework your victories. Not a bad book and Michael Heppell's accent is quite refreshing to listen to. Worth a listen to and good for a pick-me up.
Thai is a great book. Simple but very clever. The author reads with real conviction. I'm using the tools described and getting excellent results.
The key features of this program are a series of tools which really do help you to get the very best out of most challenging situations.
I really am enjoying Flipping It and suggest you give it a go too.
Up on the mountain, in a dark cave, someone is searching his soul for ways to rise above the frustrations of the flesh. Ten years later, upon emerging from the cave, he writes a book about what worked for him. Descending the mountain, meandering ever closer to the city at its base, one meets other gurus, at ever more affable altitudes, occupying caves for increasingly shorter durations, with increasingly better lighting and plumbing, composing less rarefied "what worked for me" books. Every one of them, or so we hope, proffers wisdom from some higher perspective which will help us to rise "above it all." We Earthlings beneath want to view our traumas from different angles, so we read the books. Michael Heppell's vantage point is about as close to sea level as a guru ever gets. No long stays breathing dark thin air for Michael--maybe a few hours of reading musty old books in his poorly lit attic. His wisdom is doled out in parcels such as "five ways to make a long train ride interesting," or "how I used an acidic solution to cure my indigestion." He recommends calling the sniffles "a cleansing." There, there, now . . . all better! His suggestions are sophistry, but words can sooth the day. His advice bites will not flip you from a hurricane's tempest into its halcyon. In the event of a hurricane, flip yourself from the attic of Heppell's enlightenment into the dungeon of despair under your "flat." For indigestion on long train rides, "flip it," Heppell style.
Sorry about the harsh title. I didn't hate this book, but I was very disappointed. I was probably disappointed because I have read many of these types of books, so I have heard most of the stuff he presents before. I agree with the reviewer that said this book was for the lowest common denominator. I thought it was going to be an overall philosophy, but mostly the author goes about giving specific tips. I did find the "drink apple cider vinegar for an upset stomach" tip interesting, but I wasn't looking for that type of advice when i bought this book.
