Sometimes it seems that every self-help book is 20% content, 80% inspiring stories. Mapes has reversed this ratio, filling his book with a rich and practical array of how-to-do's.

Quantum Leap Thinking concentrates on those areas that most trip us up: fear, lack of motivation, risk-aversion and self-imposed limits. These topics are treated in an easy-to-read style, with easy-to-follow guidelines.

If you're interested in personal change, this is a must read

This is a book that can be viewed as two complementary ways:
1) It is a summary of a lot of ideas from a great number of other self-help books. It adds valuable quotes and phrases from other books, and tries to make a unified view from suc different subjects and areas as NLP or (Neuro Linguistic Procesing) to Yoga, self-meditation and even hipnosis.
2) The author creates theorems (valid truths) that can help you realize how you can relax and see your life more transparently, like if you were seeing yourself through the eyes of another person. He creates 14 steps to accomplish this - so that you can gradually become more daring and more self-controlled at the same time.
This is a book that is not a revelation... Far from that.
However is a good reading and can help anyone to get a different view of themselves, guiding you to get a more fullfilling life, and become happier with themselves, by changing somethings or by letting you know how to stop and just relaize how you are doing today.

The principles of quantum physics (and all of its 'relations') has finally made its way into the realm of human behavior and thinking through the easy to read and apply book by Mapes. This book will appeal to those whose center of control is located within themselves. For those with a center of control external to themselves, or those with a locus in reciprocity--as in the form of some 'System', i.e., ...isms of any nature, or formal religions, it would be more of a struggle. Precisely because 'You create a reality that adapts to your point of view', is a fundamental principle on which the universe is based. Challenging to some, breathtaking to others, this is fundamentally one of the finest books to ever spell out the functioning of human behavior based on a taking of personal responsibility. A 21st Century jump-start!

Although James J. Mapes's self-help book is stronger than average and includes some colorful stories from the author's life, it offers essentially predictable advice. Mapes uses the physics metaphor of quantum mechanics creatively, to show how you can make major life improvements, freeing yourself from the fear and inertia that may have held you back in the past. An actor, clinical hypnotist and corporate speaker, Mapes also includes a valuable section on how to encourage better teamwork. The material on visualization is strong, and we recommend the volume to both self-help devotees and newcomers.

This book is written with the reader in mind, which always helps. Using the mind-centered quantum theory as a launching pad, James Mapes offers of a series of clear tips, advice and even theorems to help the reader break through the mental and emotional barriers preventing us from realizing our potential. The book is filled with nuggets of wisdom ("The subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between a real and imagined experience."), famous quotes (such as Abraham Lincoln's "Always bear in mind that your own resolution to success is more important than any other one thing") and plain and simple advice ("align your goals with your values.") Word for word, this is one of the best "self-help" books out there and well worth a read.

This book changed my thinking. It expanded my capacity to receive abundance. It inspired me. It is intelligent, practical and scientifically sound. Those layers make for profound internal shifts in the reader. Even approaching a subject such as quantum physics, James Mapes explains in such a tone that we get it. We understand. He makes a complex subject easy to digest and grasp. Get this book! It will shift your life into clarity and abundance!

James Mapes has a knack for getting the ideas across, and the best part is that the ideas are relevant.

This book made me reflect on many things I forgot I knew. It also made me rethink the moments I have missed. Great stuff.

Tony Robbins and Zig Ziglar right behind. This book is intended to improve Your Self -Steem, -Knoledge and -Confidence to its very roots. As you realize that to be true, it will become mandatory as a reading.
