Did I miss something?
on March 16, 2012
I honestly feel bad about writing this negative review, but I just don't understand how this is motivational. After reading three great reviews I thought this would be a great read - I was wrong. The book begins with the story of Aladdin, then another story, then another story. Then there are several Bible verses and tons of "I once met a man who..." stories, more Bible verses, quotes from successful people and references to people throughout history. Explanations on religion and science; how the two are different yet both correct. It is very clear-cut, however, if you are looking to read stories about how other people have become successful. "They started something." This was obviously written in a different generation and after the story of the 30something "negro" I put it down. I found two inspirational quotes that were certainly not worth my $.99.
Maybe I expected this book to be something it's not, but I am disappointed.
