Editorial Reviews

Review

"The revised special 10th Anniversary Edition of the highly influential The Power of Focus packs enough power to permit anyone to pluck out a proven effective plan that will overcome any obstacle. That's quite a statement to make, but more than 600,000 people around the world have been captivated by the simple, practical, and profound strategies contained in the original bestseller. Now a decade later, authors Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, and Les Hewitt have joined forces to update this enduring classic in a magnificent way that's relevant to today.

The front and back covers are mere handles that envelope a tool of great power. The book guides you through action plans that are isolated into 11 highly detailed chapters that focus with laser-like intensity on the specific steps to take to achieve your goals, and the authors provide fill-in-the-blank pages for you to tailor the plans to fit your specific circumstances. Accompanying each chapter are eloquent real life testimonies from people that encountered the same difficulties as you, but overcame the challenges with these proven effective measures. Fill your sails with new wind, chart a new course to follow, and unearth the inspiration you need to persevere no matter what the problem. Your success is assured.

Readers cannot complete the book without becoming galvanized into forceful action. You are promised that achievement looms just ahead, but beware―readers usually find their outlook transformed into one of expectancy, as if their victory over difficulties and triumph over adversity floats toward them like a message in a bottle tossed in a turbulent sea yet coming straight at them. That transformation from despondency to expectancy is the golden nugget at the core of the book. Dig in and find yours."

Format: Paperback
It was about 10 years ago that I picked up the first edition of the Power of Focus. It still sits on my shelf, battered, heavily marked, and pages folded. I credit this book, written primarily by Les Hewitt with help from Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, as one of the keys to my personal growth over the last decade.

So I was thrilled to see this revised and updated version! Now I have a new copy to begin the discovery and refocusing process anew...until another 10 years in the future when this book gets worn out and it's time for me to get the 20th anniversary edition.

I want to present an unbiased review to encourage you to buy this book. So, I'll point out two things I was hoping they'd fix in this edition: sometimes the illustrations still look reproduced at a lower quality and are occasionally distracting from the reading experience. Also, I'm not a huge fan of the internal typography and graphic layout. But that's the end of my fault-finding. The content is rock solid and incredibly useful, especially in our information overloaded day.

It may be helpful to you to think of this book more like a buffet than a meal. Rather than sitting down and digesting it all at once (which, frankly, will overwhelm you with awesomeness!), use it as a reference guide to refer back to regularly. Read a chapter, take action on just ONE THING that you read, and then set the book down. Return next week and repeat.

Get this book, but more important, read and apply what you learn, and you'll find in a year or two that your career and life are measurably better as a result.

There are so many great ideas in the book that the authors have shared in the pages of this book. The book gives you some great ideas about setting goals for yourself. While it is hard to put this into action at times, this book makes it easier than most books that I have read in the past to do this. There are so many ideas about what one can do to get their life on track and get back to the things that matter most. I loved how practical this book was and how easy it was to implement the strategies in the book. So no matter how hard making these changes may be, the ideas and strategies in this book are ones that anyone can pick up and make happen!

Such great fundamental information. This is my personal tracking system for how I am doing and where am I going. I do this at least one time per year and periodically much more often as needed.
