The Compound Effect. Darren Hardy, the publisher of SUCCESS magazine, tells us that the formula is simple:
—> “Small, Smart Choices + Consistency + Time = RADICAL DIFFERENCE.”
Small, smart choices, consistently applied over an extended period of time = HUGE results = The Compound Effect.
And, of course, if you aren’t familiar with Darren’s great magazine, SUCCESS.

I was not in that category, and can say without hesitation that this book has completely transformed the way I think about my time, energy, and life in general.
So if you haven't had much exposure to the topic (and aren't already the high functioning type who can account for every minute in their day) then the content of this book could likely ignite a new way if thinking about things for you. With every penny and second it gave back to me for building my life.
I have my own doubts of how the author concluded the book as i dont think this is a professional way to do so.
I have always read similar books and none of the writers has stated " circulate it and ask your friend tp buy it in this way you will be gaining and the same thing for me".
For me this is not a professional way of writing. One should by himself speak about it to friends and if it is a successful book then it would lead its way without us telling friends family etc.
Now getting into the material. It lacked the expertise as i have already seen all of what he has spoken about in other books which are on a higher level from this one.
It is a good noom but it is not the best.
Things I could have lived without: the blatant self-promotion by the author (I mean...the last page of the book is asking you to buy 5 more copies of his book...yuck), all the name dropping and references to his own magazine, comparisons to the author's own awesome life constantly, and the useless visuals and "informative" charts. I also feel like a lot of it was very repetitive, and what he said in 200 pages, he could have said in about half that.
