I took that chapter and began reading the book from the normal direction.
Dr. Success
The book was both full of great information and also was designed as an easy to read - and easy to absorb - text.
This is a great book for getting started on the path to positive thinking.

Format: Hardcover
Why I rated this book a five: First, as a practitioner I rate personal development/self-help books on one main criteria: How easy is the book to read and potentially use, i.e.: if the reader is ready, how easy is it to attempt to apply the advice. Second, before buying a book I judge if the author - or in this case - authors, have the knowledge and experience to be giving advice. Clearly, Brain Tracy has invested his life to disseminating good self-motivational and personal development advice. I feel the addition of Christina Stein sufficiently updates Brian's experience with current thinking and research from the therapeutic community. Third, and very important to me personally, the book layout satisfied my odd need to read the last pages of a book first! When I went to the back pages what did I find? A chapter entitled: Action Is Everything. In that chapter the reader has icons to actually guide all the action the book suggests. I took that chapter and began reading the book from the normal direction. I am a reader who likes things short, sweet and to the point. It resonated with me that each chapter offers a subsection entitled: Now Do This. Self-help is about being a self-starter. Now Do This could not be any clearer.

Format: Hardcover
On the jacket, you read that Brian Tracy is a best-selling author. That doesn't surprise me, as he's produced several books. I've listened to a couple of them in audiobook format, but I think this is the first print edition I've read. Perhaps my existing familiarity with his work is why I feel a bit underwhelmed by this book. I personally didn't find new wisdom in it, but then I've read hundreds of books in this genre (and have reviewed a fraction of those). And my age probably has something to do with it.

I think for the young person starting out or perhaps just hitting mid-career, this book can provide a framework for keeping one's eye on the proverbial North Star. That said, age doesn't always mean people grasp the lessons life has given them. So regardless of your age, if you're in some kind of negative funk you would probably benefit from reading this book if you take the time to reflect on what the authors are saying.

One downside of this book is it consists more of retreaded tales from the self-help literature than of original material. For someone with little exposure to the genre, this isn't a problem (thus my comment about the young person starting out). And I suppose that means the authors are using proven ideas rather than re-inventing the wheel. People will pay six figures for an Ivy League education (such that it is), and you can rest assured the syllabi, texts, and lectures are not completely rewritten each year.

What's original about this book is its theme. It centers on the story of the princess who kissed the frog. Said frog subsequently turned into a prince.

Format: Kindle Edition
The title is intriguing and the intro caught my attention but disappointment quickly set in. I nearly just stopped and set the book aside but then there were some discussions in the text that seemed outlandish, just plain wrong, and extremely self-centered so I kept reading to see if I was being overly critical or missing their point. In the end, there are some good bits of advice but there are also some bad bits and some downright ugly bits, too.

* The authors describe common problems that people have that center around expectations. They contend that we often start by thinking about limitations and restrictions rather than what we'd really like the endstate to be and this severely reduces what is possible.
* Many of us spend too much time complaining which achieves nothing and improves nothing. There are much more effective ways to use our time and tackle problems.
* We can learn a lot from painful experiences. It is unfortunate when we fail to learn from them so we need to face those situations deliberately and see what lessons we can draw from them.
* Being envious of others causes problems for the envious person. However, admiring others is a positive action for both parties involved. It is useful to learn to shift envy to admiration.

* If you lower your expectations, you'll find you'll be happier. This may be true, but it doesn't seem like good advice for successful living. Perhaps the authors were trying to find a new way to explain the value in being content but it comes across as useless, and risks being damaging, advice.
* Much of the advice is ridiculously oversimplified.

Format: Hardcover
"Kiss that Frog" by Brian Tracy and his daughter Christina Tracy Stein is a great little book that gives you 12 ways to turn negative things in your life and work into positives. It is based on the fairy tale about the princess who kissed the frog and it turned into a handsome prince. The concept is that negative "frogs" in your life can turn into positive things if you look at them right.

The book starts out with 7 truths about you. You are a good person, you're important, you have unlimited potential, you create your world, you are free to choose, you have a great destiny, and there are no limits. These are wonderful concepts, all you have to do is choose to believe them. The rest of the book discusses ways you can implicate these seven truths in your life. When a problem comes along, yes it is difficult, but how you react to it is key. You can reframe the way you think about the situation and see it in a different and positive light.

Another concept discussed in the book is letting go of hurts and things in the past that make you angry and depressed. It frees you to go on with your life and experience happiness. I also liked the discussion of the concept of forgiveness. It is a marvelous concept which I have experienced in my own life. For decades I had a great deal of anger toward my mother for things she had said and done to me. Finally, I realized she could not help it because of the way she had been raised. I forgave her and let it all go. I felt such a feeling of freedom and lightness about my being. I was free to go on and start a new life without all the old baggage.

I also liked the little sections at the end of the chapters called "Now Do This".
