I never leave reviews but to be honest, I have to review this book. I always have ideas and have never brought them to fruition. This book does a great job of outlining how to turn your ideas into products that you can sell. It has really helped me fine tune my sales pitch and understand how to develop an 'idea into great results.' I highly recommend it.

I can't think of anyone who wouldn't benefit from reading this book. It is rare to find a (dare I say) 'self-help' book that has conviction. Unlike most books of this nature, this by no means has a vague concept that leaves you wondering 'what's next?' It is a much needed wake up call. Making it Happen gives straight up step by step guidance to getting it done. Makes me sick of TALKING about my ideas...

I have now read this book once and studied it in detail twice and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to turn an idea into reality. Peter is young yet very wise. I love his well researched, proven, no-nonsense style. As with his other books, this one is full of really valuable insights and guidance and things that really make you think and compel you to act straight away.
