Not only does the author, Alissa Finerman, break down concepts into very easy to follow steps, she provides real world examples that I could totally relate to.

I have read a number of leadership/self-help/motivational books for multiple reasons throughout my life, and though I have gained tidbits of insight from each, I am always left wanting more and feeling as though my reasons for reading the book were never quite satisfied. Living in Your Top 1% is different. For the first time, I was given some real direction and valid inspiration after reading a book of this type. I am surprised that nothing like this has been written before.

Most self-improvement books tend to focus on one concept, such as "setting goals" or "the power of positive thinking," but Alissa Finerman really covers all avenues in this book. She takes age-old concepts, weaves in new ideas and tips and wraps everything neatly into one package. After reading this book, I felt like I was given a fresh ground to stand on and taught the proper way to grow and move forward. She covers everything from mindset, to goal setting, to balance, and how to recover from being knocked off course. It was not a complicated read, and because of the way she illustrated the concepts with memorable true stories, all of the learning points really stuck with me in ways that I feel made them easy to implement.

What made this book most impressionable to me was the fact that it caused me to look at all areas of my life when wanting to make improvements. Alissa understands that something you do in one area of your life (such as a health and fitness goal) will undoubtedly affect all other areas (such as fun, family, work, etc...). The key is to understand that you may have to make sacrifices in one area in order to make improvements in another. We often tend to take a "crash diet" approach when making changes in our life, without thinking of the chain reactions it can cause.

Living In Your Top 1% is packed with powerful, thought provoking words and images. Finerman's voice is strong and her advice is both pragmatic and liberating as she states: "Do it, dump it, or delegate it." This is a well-constructed guide and will quickly become a 'go to' book on your reference shelf. It is cleanly formatted - allowing for a quick scan, a leisurely perusal, or a marathon work session. Over the past few weeks I have found myself doing all of the above.

I have been reading organizational, self-help books for years. Alissa Finerman's heart really shines in this book. I gained a lot of personal insight with this book, specifically, how to take small steps towards my goals and she directed me to write those down (not anything new, but her tone was so perfect that I easily got out my notebook!). I explored the goal, to lose 8 more pounds; clarifying why I want it and declaring its importance. I want to feel fabulous (I have 8 children, 7 of them have come from this body), I want my husband to be physically turned on by my small waist and curves, I want to inspire others. The next part was the best part; I had to write down the obstacles THEN plan ways to overcome. Small steps: exercise four times per week, eat green and clean, use the mantra "every bite counts." Challenges: old habits of grazing without thought and just drifting. Ways to overcome: reframe my old thoughts: yes, I have children and they are the reason I am getting into tip top shape (vs using them as the excuse), put up pictures of athletes, write down food intake (and ask a friend to look it over weekly), get rid of the junk food in the house and commit to making the time each morning to allow the goal and ideal to come into my brain, heart, soul, awareness. Recommit each day. Finally, look for small wins and establish a target date AND for me, continue to set the date six months out that I maintain the weight to enable this to be a life-long deal!
I did the same process for my other goal of growing my nutrition business.
This book was worth the ten bucks. I highly recommend. Thanks, Alissa, for following your dreams and helping me recommit to mine!

Alissa Finerman wastes no time in this instructional self-improvement book. Upfront she dedicates it to "Every person who has overcome or will soon overcome the word impossible" - this concise but powerful intro sets the tone for what is to come: a series of 1st hand and 2nd hand stories of triumph over some of life's difficulties (especially the difficulties we erect for ourselves), combined with a near recipe like set of principles and instructions (presented as 9 'rituals') on how you can move from where you really are in life to where you really want to be.

Unlike many tomes from self-help Authors, Finerman's book does not take a long and winding road toward instruction. The book is organized as a set of true stories of transformation: Each person's story is concise, simple, and direct. Finerman's mixture of famous and ordinary people in these stories makes for engaging and interesting reading. A common thread of self-realization, mindset change and corrective action (or in Finerman's formula: Assess, Create, Implement) weaves each tale together to form a narrative of the book's theme: Successful self-change is possible for anyone willing to follow a proven plan.

A stirring, motivational quote from a bevy of famous achievers (from Aristotle to Anthony Robbins) establishes credibility for, then launches each new chapter while you as the reader begin to envision your own 'success story' unfolding vicariously through a combination of the tales of others' triumphs over doubt, debilitation or circumstance.

Finerman underscores her intent to help you drive toward results by integrating academic textbook like assignments, recaps and note-taking sections at the end of each chapter. This is what the book tangibly delivers: A real formula for self-transformation.
