Nine Things Successful People Do Differently Audible – Unabridged

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.
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.Read more ›
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.
