5.0 out of 5 stars Advice to live by, September 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: This Is How: Proven Aid in Overcoming Shyness, Molestation, Fatness, Spinsterhood, Grief, Disease, Lushery, Decrepitude & More. For Young and Old Alike. (Kindle Edition)
This book is amazing! The advice given in the book for pretty much any problem you might have in your life is simple and common sense once you know it, but the problem is that many of us can't see the simple solution to our problems when we're in the middle of it. And sometimes the advice given is not a simple "solution" to a problem, but more a way to live your life and accept things as they are and not let your mind worry about things that don't matter or to continually dwell on the past and let it drag you down. The chapters are short and a fast read. Mr. Burroughs dispenses the advice simply and clearly and does not fill up the pages with fluff and constant repetition, although you will notice a consistent theme throughout most of the chapters, and occassionally he inserts short examples from his own life. However, this is not to say that the moment you read the book, all your problems will be "solved". The advice given may be simple and seem so obvious, but depending on your problem and the situation, it still may require a lot of time and effort to actually believe and live by this advice, but if you are motivated this book can help you, and in my opinion it is the only "self-help book" anyone would ever need.
