Editorial Reviews

Review

There are so many self help books out on the market, many of which reiterate the same information. While some of us may need to read the same stuff over and over again, I have to admit that it is incredibly refreshing to get my hands on a book that I truly feel might be the only self help book that anyone could possibly need.  - ReaderViews

About the Author

Janet Poole's mission is to inspire people to live an extraordinary life on their own terms, to reach their full potential and to wake up enthusiastic about their day every day. Janet's debut book, How to Get Anything You Want - Just Like That!, is receiving rave reviews. It won awards in three categories of the 2011 Reader Views Literary Awards, was a Finalist in the 2012 National Indie Excellence Awards and won a 2011 Pinnacle Book Achievement Award.

Since early childhood, Janet's life has been an adventure, mostly fabulous but with its fair share of challenges - which, of course, generated the greatest learning and growth. She has followed many alternate paths in her quest to understand life, including quantum physics, neuroscience, the link between brain-body-emotions, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Taoism, Masters of the Far East, Eckankar and nutrition.

Janet was born in Durban, South Africa. Her initial career in Information Technology took her first to England. That gave her the opportunity to travel around Europe and work on a Kibbutz in Israel. Janet was offered a contract in Australia, where she has lived for 23 years with her partner and her two children.

More About the Author

While traveling and working in I.T. in different countries, Janet avidly studied people and their behavior. This propelled her to explore what lies beneath everyone's individuality, and why some people are happy with very little and others miserable in paradise. Since early childhood, Janet's life has been an adventure, mostly fabulous but with its fair share of challenges - those times of course (!) generating the greatest learning and growth. Janet has two children and lives in New South Wales, Australia with her partner.

For more than 20 years Janet has followed alternate paths in her quest to understand life, including quantum physics, neuroscience, the link between brain-body-emotions, NLP Practitioner (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), Taoism, Masters of the Far East, Eckankar, nutrition and so on.

I had my suspicions about the book, at first. "Is this going to be a get rich quick type of book?" Well, if you are having those reservations, I can put your mind at ease. This is not that type of book. Janet Poole believes that everyone is truly amazing; we just have to reach inside ourselves and bring it to the surface. Basically, the key to getting everything you want is to be happy, and believe that you deserve it. It is disheartening to know how many people do not believe they deserve to be happy.

Janet Poole walks us through the steps to becoming a fabulous being that is happy, and really does have the life we want and deserve. One of her key points is finding out what this life really is. We have to reach into ourselves and decide what we want, not what society thinks we should want. This is a major issue for many people. I realize now that the life I thought I wanted is not the one I have envisioned. Oddly enough, I am closer than I thought to the life that I actually want. We all need work, but the author will help you realize the true steps of getting there.

An interesting aspect of this book is that Janet Poole touches on Quantum Physics, and how it relates to our unique beings. I am not good at science, and never have been. However, I can understand the way she explains it. I also enjoyed the motivational quotes scattered throughout the book, they are nice pick me ups. I will be putting them on post-it notes and scattering them throughout my house.

Here is one activity she shares in the book. "Try this: look in a mirror and say, `I am precious, special, and amazing.' Notice if this is a challenge for you. Never mind how strange this seems- you may need to pretend you mean it at first, but say it with conviction.

Format: Paperback
The power of positive thinking, changing attitudes, embracing your inner strength, seizing control over your life, not letting others dictate your productivity or happiness; these and many more are the themes of "How to get anything you want". Poole builds on concepts designed to help the reader recognize those situations and inner barriers that hinder a person from progressing, or better said, from achieving their desires and goals. The book provides insight into what may be issues in your life, both personal and professional, provides direction in overcoming these issues and even exercises to help the reader through the concepts or through self-analysis and reflection. The book gives inspirational quotes, decent summaries of the chapters, good sense advice and a variety of approaches for each idea. It is all inclusive and wide ranging and will have a wide target audience.
While the book is well written, very well laid out and easy to read, I found the concepts a repeat of many self-analysis and self-help books already on the shelf. The title, "How to get anything you want - Just Like That!" is also misleading and actually contrary to some of the concepts presented. This book provides a path to attitude, emotional or situational change, which in its self might lead to personal growth, emotional stability, or even financial gain through realizing and overcoming your individual limitations, but it can give the reader nothing "Just Like That!"
On the positive side, I believe there is great wisdom inside and everyone will walk away with lessons or skills, whether new or reinforced, that can improve their situation. To those who pick up this book I say, "Embrace the message".

An excellent book which can and will help you change your life for the better. The emphasis of the exercises and guidance in the book is all about your 'self ' - How you see yourself, what pre-determined ideas and beliefs you have and how others react to your behaviour and attitude.

The author takes you through a journey and explains why and how your thoughts and behaviour have been formed. Once you recognize these traits, the author then challenges them and stresses by taking small steps these traits will start to change which will lead to bigger changes to enhance your life.

The challenges and demands which we face in our lives are cleverly broken down into chapters and for each demand/challenge the author gives you an alternative thought process to help you cope. With practice this could lead to that demand/challenge becoming less of an impact on your life and therefore eliminating that problem and as each problem is eradicated your life is enriched.

Reading this book I found myself challenging myself and through this I did feel better and gained confidence. I am sure if I keep going back to the book and using the tools and exercises that I can improve my outlook on life which is what I deserve.

This is a book which is once read must be kept close to hand for reference in case those nagging doubts come back because once re-read I am sure that will be the final end to that problem. An inspiring and easy to read book.

I have read my fair share of self-help books. Most of them leave me feeling unsatisfied because they don't really teach me anything. That was not the case with Just Like That! It is full of insightful information that will make you re-think what you have learned from this genre in the past. With unique hints that seem to be tailored to your individual style, Just Like That! can help you barrel through the obstacles and reach your true potential. Janet's distinct writing and powerful voice make for an educational and inspiring read.
