This is a very short and quick read. Personally, I found it simply reinforces what I consider to be "common sense" and what I mostly try to do. I didn't find anything here that is earth shattering other than the author is not a snake oil motivational sales person, but a logic straight forward person - so this book has none of the crock that typically pervades this type of genre.
As the author is an academic psychologist, I did find the few referrals to actual experiments too sparse, and too general. Anyhow, as I understand it, this book is the teaser to her longer work "Succeed: How We Can Reach Our Goals" - maybe I should read this one for a more in depth treatment.

"There are nine things that successful people do - the strategies they use to set and pursue goals that, according to decades of research, have he biggest impact on performance."

Heidi Grant Halvorson, a psychology professor at Columbia University and author of the highly acclaimed "Succeed: How We Can Reach Our Goals", has written about the nine things we need to know and do in order to achieve our goals.

This is a gem of a book. A real treasure. While I really enjoyed and learned from her book Succeed, in some respects I think this one can be a much more valuable tool for those readers who are more interested in specific strategies and steps to take in order to improve their chances of success.

While this book leaves out a lot of the material that serves as scientific back-up for the nine steps, the information is available to the reader who wants it. Throughout the book, certain keywords are underlined. Click on the underlined keywords and you are taken to websites which offers additional information and support for the studies.

The book is very short and a breeze to read. You should be able to read it in about an hour. But my suggestion would be to read it through one time to get the overall theory and then go back through it and actually do the suggested exercises. Some of the nine things will require a change in mindset. I believe by reading the book a few times and internalizing the ideas, you will be able to start developing a success mindset.

A great part of the value of the book is in the structure and presentation. The nine steps are not cluttered with a lot of stories or theory. There is certainly enough information to explain and support the premises for each point.

I was very disappointed in this book. First of all, it is S-H-O-R-T. Doesn't Amazon have some minimum where if it is shorter it is supposed to be a Kindle Single? If so, this book barely passed the minimum number of words. But the biggest issue I have is that it is a bunch of re-treaded ideas that have been in self-help books since the olden days. For example, Chapter 1 is "Set Specific Goals." I think anyone who has studied goal setting for any amount of time has seen this idea repeatedly.

This book really doesn't provide anything new to the book written by Napoleon Hill about a 100 years ago.
It is really a waste of time and money.
The author acts like a preacher who takes one text of the bible and makes NINE lengthy sermons out of it, inflating it with stories and research really to tell you the six steps Napoleon hill mentions.
Yes it has more research and it cites good references, and it puts a more complicated language to name the same steps" just sounding sophisticated and more scientific, but is the same thing.
It is like telling you to take a bath in the morning, with a fancy dissertation about H2O and the reaction it makes with the chemicals in soap, how it interacts with your skin and flushes the dirt out.
YES, what a lame scientific crap!

I am so surprised Harvard is putting their name in such cheap inflated but still a lame copy, just validated by years of research. Napoleon Hill devoted 25 years to study this subject.

I categorically say, if you read Napoleon Hill's book you will obtain a better deal, and it is actually a less expensive book packed with great advice.

Fantastic scientifically-validated strategies to accomplish your goals. One of my favorite books - short, packed full of knowledge, and unbelievably helpful and useful. Get it - you will not regret it. If you're thinking about getting the author's longer book Succeed, I'd recommend getting this one and saving the extra time and money; I've read both and all of the strategies presented in the longer book are present in this shorter version. Enjoy!

This is a very short summary of other people's work. The author uses phrases such as "thousands of studies", "countless studies", "well over a hundred studies" etc. and yet when there are references it is to a single study. The book reads like a quick draft of ideas rather than discussing topics in detail. Even though I like the principles that the author tries to convey, I was disappointed.

There is a sea of research out there on motivation and goals. This is, BY FAR, the most concise, well-written, and useful summary of that research I've ever seen. Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson has succeeded in a monumental task, no doubt following her own advice on how to succeed. The proof is in the pudding. I highly recommend this e-book for anyone who wants to know what it really takes to succeed.
