3.0 out of 5 stars so-so May 4, 2012

This book was less than inspiring. It was a bit choppy and not exactly well written. It was an easy read, however, and made a three hour flight fly by.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing book August 11, 2010
By Kumaran
When I wanted to buy a book I will always read about the author to see how successful he is. When I got this book, I read the success of this author who created a multimillion dollar business in his 20's and I liked it and I bought this book. I can say it happily that my thought process has changed every since I read this book. I finished it in 3 days. I couldn't keep the book down. I am thankful to the author and I now realize that pen is mightier than sword. He is my favorite author next to Napoleon Hill.

Looking forward to read other books of his.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful May 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wish I had read this earlier in my life. I do believe I adhered to many of these principles, but hadn't truely believed I was successful. I may not be rich, but I've been happy, so that makes me a success. This book will enrich your life and spirit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing to say the Least January 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was lucky enough to get the book for free on Kindle. This is my very first review on any item on and I've been ordering on a steady basis since 1999. I thought this book is worthy of my effort and praise.
I started reading this book last night and am 1/2 way through today. At the risk of sounding cliche, this book is really starting to change the way I see and will live life. This is coming from a someone who's frequently pessimistic, imagining the worst possible scenario, and whose glass is always half empty.

Thank you, Mr. Cameron C. Taylor and thank you
