    Story
    "Straight and to the Point"

    This book was recommended to me by a colleague, and I was not disappointed. Mr. Connors outlines, in the simplest of terms, what must be done to experience happiness in all areas of life. Implementing the principles outlined in this book may not be easy, but it's simple. Connors does an excellent job to point out the characteristics of below-the-line thinking, and shows the steps to defeat it. I didn't realize until I heard this book how much of my own time and energy I was still wasting blaming outside circumstances for my own problems instead of taking control to confront them head on. If you're not open to self-change, you will likely find this book to be a waste of your time, but if you are, it provides a great foundation to begin.

    I found the journey enjoyable but a painful experience of Self Examination to a greater person through the end.

    The Best thing of the Whole Book is that it is Real and principles are applicable to all levels of life whether in Business or Home life relationships.


    What does Wayne Shepherd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Shepherd keeps information alive and interesting.

    The Last 3 chapters were a real call to action for me and going through the exercises is a must if you are truly committed to Getting Above the Line and Staying there.

    Story
    "The man behind the curtain....is you"
    If you could sum up The Oz Principle in three words, what would they be?

    From a business point of view much of this is common sense. Accountability starts with you. The ideas are clear, well though out and applicable. The idea of above and below the line is great. Getting upper management to take feedback and say thank you..this portion I find unrealistic.
