In addition, he makes claims based on his own opinions, rather than on empirical data, claiming, for example, that all humans find learning and accomplishments useless unless shared with others. His characterization of his friend hitting a hole-in-one on a golf course "disastrous" because he was alone on the course speaks more to the author's insecurities than to anything else. The author is, of course, entitled to his own opinions. The issue is that he presents them indiscriminately as facts.
Allow me to give you the good parts: 1 only you can choose what you do, trying to coerce others or trying to please others is a waste of time and effort, and you'll get frustrated. 2 everyone has secret stats the way mario kart characters have stats. Learn your stats and try to match yours up with your sig other. stats are: power, fun, freedom, belonging, And love. 3 people have a vision of what they want in their life, if you want them to do something not in that perception, forget it. If you want them to discard something in that vision, forget it. 4 depression is a choice you subconsciously make when reality is at conflict with your vision. So is arthritis and chronic back pain (yes, he does say that).
Only after this mind-set do I begin interaction. When I have been able to keep this focus the interpersonal results have been wonderful. Business tasks are quickly and very efficiently completed. My wife and I smile at each other when we make a decision. Trust, love, and respect continue to build as this mind-set is practiced again and again.
I am astounded at the technological advances man has made. Using the knowledge in this book gives man a chance of getting out of our psychological stone-age. BUT if you will NOT allow yourself to be vulnerable do not waste your time with this book.
