Not very straight forward - Shallow and Preachy
on April 10, 2014
This book doesn't sound right. It talks about somethings, to improve oneself, do this and that. Think positive, develop a positive frame of mind etc. But doesn't implore one to do it in right way.
The phrase is "Change your attitude, change your life" - The title is catchy and is true. But what is attitude other than way of looking at life. So the book says, change the way you look at life. But that's it. It stops there.
How does one change the way to look at life ?
Why should one change his attitude?
These are some important questions the book doesn't address. The book doesn't talk about the problems/issues/troubles one faces in life due to wrong attitude. It doesn't emphasize the central role attitude plays in our life. It does provides definition of what is positive attitude and what is not, but doesn't lead one to fully appreciate the importance of correct attitude.
Dissatisfied. Bad Investment. Would rather go with book like "Power of Now" for the basic shift one is looking in himself/herself.
