The reason it didn't get 5 stars was the overuse of the phrase, "Pray like it depends on God, work like it depends on you." I think there is a fear that prayer alone will lead people to complacency. The problem was that all the stories in the book really emphasized that it was "pray like it depends on God."
There was no clear explanation of the "work" I was supposed to do. Obviously, if you are praying to buy a property, you must put an offer on the property and do some due diligence, but the application of our "work" is vague at best. This sort of phrase often leads one to the conclusion that if things don't work out, it's not clear if it was God saying no, or you just didn't work hard enough.
Other than that one issue, it inspired me to want to pray bolder prayers.
