      "Everything Begins With A Thought."

      Change the way you think, and you'll change the way you live. It's true, isn't it? This book gets to the root of all actualizations - thinking. Answer the questions in this book and you will realize your thinking patterns. It will help you identify the areas in your thinking that you want to improve on. Definitely worth the time and money. I also recommend the book "Failing Forward" by the same author.
      I hope this review begins your thinking journey

      "Short and to the point"

      This book gets right into the meat and potatoes... without all the extra calories ;)

      Very easy to listen too and follow. Long enough to get in all the good stuff but short enough not to loose your attention. If your interested in learning about new ways of thinking, this is a good place to start.

      "Life changing - a must read!"
      Would you listen to Thinking for a Change again? Why?

      Again and again! I so enjoyed this because it made me think, for a change.


      What other book might you compare Thinking for a Change to and why?

      The Magic of Thinking Big. It's the same topic and the same positive approach.


      Which scene was your favorite?

      None really as it was all good. Can't think of a negative or poorly spoken part of it.


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      All of it! I was practically vibrating with thoughts and ideas and reason to change.


      Any additional comments?

      Get and read it and don't hide it away - then share it!

      "Succinct and useful"

      Maxwell is a well practiced story teller. He uses good examples and has designed a solid framework for this book. All of the main points are told clearly. It makes sense. You get an insight into how to think like you know you should and plenty of ideas to take away and practice with. Well worth a listen.
