Editorial Reviews


"The overriding message contained in Mastering a Healthy Self Image is: Believe in yourself with passion. Go out and do the things in life that really make you happy and you will be. The author comes across as a sincere guy who would really like to help change your life for the better."-

"Mastering a Healthy Self Image is certainly a notable introduction to positive imaging...It's also a viable choice for seasoned self-esteem builders...And like all of the best authors of self-help books, Knoch has a way of making you feel that what he advocates is achievable." - Joseph Yurt,

"I have...interviewed more than a 1000 authors, and I can say without hesitation that I have not read a book as good as...Mastering a Healthy Self Image, since I read Chicken Soup for the Soul and interviewed Jack Canfield. I really believe Darrell has a big hit on his hands." --William Horan, THE SECRETS OF SUCCESS RADIO, Nassau, NY

From the Author

Being born into extreme poverty, the youngest of seven children, then having an accident at the age of one that disfig­ured my face, I grew up with very poor self- esteem and was angry toward the world. Thankfully, I was so determined not to let those things keep me down and define me, that I made the decision early on to do whatever was necessary to overcome the adversities I faced. And I made a commitment to start educating myself, so that when I faced any challenges, I would have the skills to surmount them. I eventually started several companies that I took nation­al and international. Because of my success with these ventures, I was able to semi-retire at the age of fifty-four.

I have learned a tremendous number of life lessons that I want to share with you through this book. My desire is that you will be able to apply these lessons to your life, so that you can find happiness, and ultimately go out and do great things for yourself and the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome and inspiring! May 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you feel sorry for yourself and your life, you should get this book.
I cried through the entire first chapter. I realized to the extent which I was feeling like a failure.
The first step to getting over this was to acknowledge it, and this book brought me to that point.

I have had personal interactions over email with the author and he is truly a generous and real man who wants to genuinely help other people. This book and his amazing gratitude coins are doing just that. If you have not heard about his coins, you absolutely must go to youtube and search for the six minute news clips which are covering the story. It will bring you to tears.

This book will give you hope when you have none and remind you that ANYBODY can make themselves into something if they just believe in themselves. It is most certainly easier said then done, but this book guides you how to do it.
I wish I had a hard copy of it, as I ordered it on Kindle.
I pray that God bless this man further and hope someday I can be an inspiration to others as he has been to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Self Help Tool For Anyone February 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this book. The author quoted from several motivational gurus like Tony Robbins and Zig Ziglar and others which I love. The author also got real personal about his story early on in the book. I felt closer to him as a human being and connected. Chapter 9 had some neat information on digestion. Overall a good book for the book shelf. I give it a 4.5 rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Going With Help From Darrell January 16, 2012
Darrell Knoch is well qualified to write a self help book. He overcame an early life marked by poverty, physical disfigurement and an abusive father to invent and manufacture a sought after domestic product, develop a software package for dental procedures and create a real estate portfolio from scratch. Along the way he filed for bankruptcy three times and went broke a few times. Undaunted by these reversals, Darrell believes you are only a loser if you quit; quitting is something he doesn't ever think about.

A strong believer that the way to happiness and contentment in life is through a healthy self image, his book, Mastering a Healthy Self Image, has as a central theme the building and retention of self-confidence. Written in an anecdotal storytelling style, he blends inspiring incidents from his life and the lives of family and friends with self help strategies. The strategies are reinforced with quotes from other self help authors' books - Zig Ziglar, often mentioned, is credited with putting Darrell Knoch on the path to high self esteem.

Chapter headings in the book include: changing your world, power of positivity, self talk, relationships, setting goals and perseverance. The methods and laws outlined to take your self esteem to the same high as the authors have been documented in easily understandable language. The Law Of Becoming appealed to me - mental evolution is largely determined by the thoughts you put into your mind; your life is what your thoughts make it. If you follow the rule and think positive, change is possible.

The fear of success syndrome, which Darrell Knoch believes paralyzes the majority of our society today, is explained as being a fear of trying.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Swiss Army Knife of Self Improvement December 29, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has it all when it comes to improving your self image regardless of your age or where you are in your walk in life. This book has been a tremendous benefit in my life and I can't wait to see what Darrell delivers us up next in the way of self improvement strategies. Darrell has a great way of storing telling that most everyone can relate to and easily understand the message. It's all up to us in the end to choose how and when to use the tools available to us and Darrell has given us some great material to work with and contemplate. This is a read that is hard to put down because if you believe life is change this book is all about how to embrace change and learn that growth and change is necessary for our own personal growth. This has been a great stocking stuffer that I have given to numerous friends and colleagues. Congratulations Darrell and thank you!

As someone who has been interested in self-growth my entire life, I have read hundreds of books, most of which say the same thing, just in different ways. I know the importance of having a healthy self image so I picked up this book just to see if there might be some new insights I could use. Wow! All I can say is that I was pleasantly surprised with this book! The author's story was very interesting, taking us on a journey from his humble beginnings of living in poverty (with an abusive father), and then showing us exactly how he was able to use laser-like focus and determination to get out of that environment to become very happy and successful (and wealthy, too!). This book was so much more than just teaching you how to have a healthy was very comprehensive covering everything from self-talk and mastering your mind, setting goals and how to REALLY achieve them, how to have healthy, fulfilling relationships, and it even spoke about health and fitness, to keep your body fit so you will have enough energy to do everything you want to do. This is the book that should have been required reading for all of us as young adults about to embark out into the real world, because it quite literally could be a complete handbook for a successful life! And because it is done in a "story telling fashion" with the author giving us exact steps on how he achieved success, it is much more interesting than just having someone tell us what to do. If you are looking for a gift for anyone having a difficult time or who has perhaps lost their way (maybe this even describes you), this book will be a good compass to get them get back on track to begin creating the life of their dreams, a life that they absolutely LOVE! I will be giving this book as a Christmas present to many people I know who are struggling right now. Kudos to Mr. Knoch for writing such a great book!

More About the Author

Darrell Knoch was born into extreme poverty, the youngest of seven. His father was verbally and physically abusive to his wife and children. An accident at the age of one left Darrell with a disfigured face and made him the object of ridicule among his classmates. It wasn't until he was almost eighteen that he was able to have reconstructive surgery.

Sustained by the words of an encouraging mother, supportive brothers, and an arsenal of self-help tapes and books, Darrell was able to overcome the pain and obstacles of his childhood. Through lots of hard work, he went on to take 5 companies national and international that generated billions of dollars in revenue. His success was not just a straight climb to the top. It was about achievement, loss, and getting back up again.

Now he is inspiring and helping people on a much larger scale with his brand new book, Mastering a Healthy Self Image: The Guidebook to Real Happiness and Enormous Success, an inspirational yet practical blueprint for overcoming adversity, achieving unstoppable self-confidence, and attaining your goals for personal and professional success.
