Format: Hardcover
I'd seen a mention of this book somewhere on the Internet so sought it out in the local library. Much of the book's content was good. The author's story is captivating. The part about taking action was good. The recommendation to start a business is very good and very timely; the author does a good job of warning prospective business owners to have a healthy cushion of savings and start on the weekends. He doesn't emphasize the most important ingredient for success - the ability to tap into customer needs - which is the most difficult part of business success and also the hardest to teach.

Then at the end I felt a huge letdown. The author blatantly promotes his own website and his own businesses. His mastermind group is open to everyone...for a fee. The book promises to recommend coaches. I didn't see the listing on his site, but it's common for someone who recommends coaches to take a percentage of the fees, often for the life of the coaching engagement.

In Chapter 16 the author emphasizes a specific religious orientation, which is not mentioned on the cover.

In a self-published book to be distributed with speeches, I'd have no problem with any of this. But this book was published by Wiley, a respected publisher, and presented as a stand-alone self-help book.

The author's site shows he gets $25,000 and up for speeches. He's obviously doing well. So why not just write a straightforward self-help book and skip the commercials? If anything, his credibility would rise.

Format: Hardcover
Patrick Snow is an incredible inspiration to so many. The "Dean of Destiny" certainly believes at a level most of us aspire to. This book sold so many copies as a self-published product that Wiley picked it up. His systematic approach is easily duplicable for your work positive lifestyle. Snow's frequent quotes raise the motivation factor of reading exponentially.

Patrick Snow decided that he wanted to be in charge of the direction of his life. He had a dream to become a doubt after public speaker and he chased that dream. He became a best seller with a SELF PUBLISHED book along the way.

This is the book and this is how he did it.

This book gives very practical, straight forward direction for doing the same.

I enjoyed the book and found many worthwhile things to follow up on.

the only drawback I found is that this book is in serious need of updating. some technical aspects (no need to recommend MySpace) as well as personal details (Snow is no longer married) could be updated for a more effective guide.

all in all, this is a great book to give you the push out of the rut and onto the road to your dreams

Patrick is an amazing writer who has delivered a genuine book based on his experience of Creating Your Own Destiny. The book is packed with information, insights and stories that help the reader to connect to the topic. In addition, actual workbook exercises moves you beyond reading and contemplating into action. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has not yet realized their dream, wants more out of life or wants to create their own destiny.

I purchased five copies of this book and gave four away to friends and family. All of them read the book and called me to tell me how inspired they were by Patrick's book.

Far too often people get caught up in what they're "supposed" to be doing in life and work. Here's a tip. Do what you WANT to do. Create your own destiny! It's really as simple as that. Patrick's book will inspire you and show you how others have done it, and how YOU'RE going to do it. If you've been waiting for an invitation this is it. Buy this book!

Format: Hardcover
The book, Creating Your Own Destiny: How to Get Exactly What You Want Out of Life and Work, is the ONLY book you'll need on your shelf when it comes to motivating yourself toward success. Patrick has taken the time to collect and condense his own wisdom as well as the wisdom of many other notable authors, into a comprehensive and applicable story. Using the model, "Dream - Plan - Execute - Soar" he weaves his own life experiences into a roadmap for anyone wanting to realize their individual potential. I highly recommend this book.
