    "Wrong title?"

    Some interesting points, no miracle cure, general, a bit too long.

    I had expected more and better tools for “changing by Friday”. I was looking for some “quick fixing” and encouraging reading. The book is more like an ordinary book about the topic, self development / help. No miracles by Friday as the title promises.

    Good parts:
    The chapter about birth order was interesting indeed. Very interesting observations about what shapes us. The chapter was maybe a bit too long.

    The authour's own story about the gain of self confidence in the academic field was also very interesting.

    The part about early childhood memories was ground shaking to me! (Do the exercise). I got to see some of my “blind spots”. Or I got to see and feel where my personality was shaped. My first memories were also feelings which unconsciously have been with me ever since, without me knowing where the feeling of being “me” came from. These (until now hidden) feelings are both my personality and also my defense. I have not truly been able to understand why people have called me selfish and absentminded (or therefore I have not been able to or felt it necessary to change it, because this “feeling of me” felt so right). But seeing myself in my early childhood I saw a child getting her way but also “living in my own world” to protect he self from chaos and lack of contact. Now that I have literally seen my weakness and its root, I feel I have a choice to do otherwise.

    How the personality of your parents has shaped us also turned to be true for me. Very interesting.

    Otherwise tools to identifying your weakness’s and implementing the changes was rather trivial. (Im not sure the experience I have described above was meant to be so ground shaking as it turn out to be for me).

    The author reveals weakness's which he has not be able to change, which makes the last part of the book more like chit-chat.

    Some interesting points, no miracle cure, too general, a bit too long.
