Content Good but needs a little less marketing analysis
on January 7, 2000
Steve Scott was one of those men who seemed to be drifting, in his early life. This book chronicals his drift and failures in great detail. It shows warts and all. It should give most people a sense, that, I'm Surely Not As Bad As That. By detailing his many failures he shows, that anyone can turn their life around and create success.
From this standpoint, YOU CAN TURN YOUR LIFE AROUND, type of inspiration, I award it 5 stars.
But and I must say it is a big but, much of the content of this book is a Masters Degree Course in Marketing and the in's and out's of producing and creating INFO-COMMERCIALS. Quite what this type of treatise on marketing analysis, has to do with success beats me.
I cannot call this book a clear blue print for success. If you want that buy; Success is not an Accident by Tommy Newberry, or The Simple Way to Success by Larry Winget. Both these books beat this book hands down. It is not a Think and Grow Rich type of book either.
This book must be bought on the merit that it is an honest account of an ordinary life, and how an ordinary debt ridden life can be turned around. It is an inspirational book, and as far as that goes it is awarded 5 stars. On any other criteria, this book would get 2 to 3 stars, as it can be way off subject, if a blue print for success is what you are looking for.
There are better books on the subject, but this book is worth reading.
