I first ran into this book about 8 or 9 months ago when i was going through a rough period in my life. Im not going to tell my sob story here, but suffice to say i was looking for some good books on motivation and thought patterns. I originally bought this book off of Mike Brescia's web site just for the hell of it. It looked real gimmicky and the title was real corny but i thought "what the hell , its only 20 bucks"

After i recieved the book i couldnt put it down. This wasnt your typical "think happy thoughts" book it was more down to earth with its advice and more inline with what you'll get with a book on religious mystics of all faiths, except no religious non sense att all.

Im a fan of Eknath easwaran whos work in thought and its uses in meditation and daily life were way ahead of what anyone was offering backin his day, and even today. One of Easwarans favorite quotes that he put in almost eveyone of his books was from the buddha " We are the some of what we think" and this is the overall theme of brescia's book, except he gives you a very basic way of achieving a more positive and productive way of reaching this state of mind.

The only draw backs to his book is the annoying sales pitch throughout his book for his other products. the book is a combonation of selfhelp for you and catalog for Brescia, so much so that i thought about giving it only 4 stars, but, like everyone else in america, the man is allowed to make a buck so the 5 stars stay. I also really could have done without the title of the book, it sounded more like it came from a barney library then an adult motivational book, but that is just a personal annoyance.

Overall i really believe this book, its advice and stories, will really help alot of people. The proof in the millions of studies done on thought and its consequences to humans is overwhelming, and this book will help you get a healthier thought pattern working for you.

Format: Paperback
This book is full of cocky assertions ("I absolutely know that you will ..."), and condescending comments ("C'mon now. Think!" "Is this starting to make sense yet? Good!" -- a couple hundred pages in). Superlative adjectives are overused, sometimes more than one per sentence. Most paragraphs have just one or two short sentences, and each is set off with empty lines, as if the author expects the reader has the attention span of a three year old. Lots of SHOUTING in all caps, use of strings of exclamation marks!!!! and _underlining_ of words. Just in case your reading comprehension skills are a little below par, I guess? The author continually pats himself on the back and tells us how wonderful he is, which I think was covered just fine in the reviews from the covers and end pages. Overall the style left me feeling like I was correcting middle school essays, being shouted at, and wading through self-aggrandizing huckster patter.

Brescia's primary technique is to repeat affirmations ("winning beliefs") to yourself several times a day as a way to stay motivated. That can be helpful as far as it goes, but he also suggests to write your affirmations on 3x5 cards, and thrice daily "read them with emotion, shaking your head up and down as you read them. It helps... to say to yourself, "YES!" or "THAT'S RIGHT!" or "ABSOLUTELY!" as you read them -- all the while shaking your head up and down."

I'm sorry, but acting like a demented parrot and shouting "YES" is not going to alter the truth value of what you are saying. I could tell myself ten times a day, "Santa is real!" and declare with great emotion, "ABSOLUTELY!!" "THAT'S RIGHT!!" I could even state this to others, and act as if it were true, but none of this behavior would alter the reality that Santa is fictional.
