Editorial Reviews

Review

“The moment Brian shared with me the message of his new book, I knew I had to have it, read it, and share it with my friends. I recommend you buy this book, read it, and use it—because a happier, more joyful life is just a few hours away.”
—David Bach, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Automatic Millionaire and founder of FinishRich.com

“Don’t let the funny title fool you—Kiss That Frog! could change your life. Let Brian Tracy and Christina Tracy Stein help you let go of negative thoughts that may be controlling your day-to-day attitude more than you realize. Read this book and step into a more positive future!”
—Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager® and Lead with LUV

“Brian promised that his book with the icky title would show me new ways of overcoming fears, to clear my mind of unwanted memories, and to move forward toward my dreams with forgiveness and positivity. So I kissed that frog. And it wasn’t all that bad. Actually, it was excellent. I recommend that you kiss that frog, too.”
—Robert G. Allen, author of the bestsellers Creating Wealth and Multiple Streams of Income and coauthor of The One Minute Millionaire

“A timely book that helps us focus on finding the good in another person or situation rather than finding faults or flaws. I especially liked the ‘Now Do This’ tips that help transform the book’s concepts into tangible behaviors. This book should be required reading for everyone!”
—Dr. Tony Alessandra, Hall of Fame motivational speaker, coauthor of The Platinum Rule, and author of Charisma

“Kiss That Frog shows you how to release your unlimited potential for successful living.”
—T. Harv Eker, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Secrets of the Millionaire Mind

Format: Hardcover
Why I rated this book a five: First, as a practitioner I rate personal development/self-help books on one main criteria: How easy is the book to read and potentially use, i.e.: if the reader is ready, how easy is it to attempt to apply the advice. Second, before buying a book I judge if the author - or in this case - authors, have the knowledge and experience to be giving advice. Clearly, Brain Tracy has invested his life to disseminating good self-motivational and personal development advice. I feel the addition of Christina Stein sufficiently updates Brian's experience with current thinking and research from the therapeutic community. Third, and very important to me personally, the book layout satisfied my odd need to read the last pages of a book first! When I went to the back pages what did I find? A chapter entitled: Action Is Everything. In that chapter the reader has icons to actually guide all the action the book suggests. I took that chapter and began reading the book from the normal direction. I am a reader who likes things short, sweet and to the point. It resonated with me that each chapter offers a subsection entitled: Now Do This. Self-help is about being a self-starter. Now Do This could not be any clearer.

On the jacket, you read that Brian Tracy is a best-selling author. That doesn't surprise me, as he's produced several books. I've listened to a couple of them in audiobook format, but I think this is the first print edition I've read. Perhaps my existing familiarity with his work is why I feel a bit underwhelmed by this book. I personally didn't find new wisdom in it, but then I've read hundreds of books in this genre (and have reviewed a fraction of those). And my age probably has something to do with it.

I think for the young person starting out or perhaps just hitting mid-career, this book can provide a framework for keeping one's eye on the proverbial North Star. That said, age doesn't always mean people grasp the lessons life has given them. So regardless of your age, if you're in some kind of negative funk you would probably benefit from reading this book if you take the time to reflect on what the authors are saying.

One downside of this book is it consists more of retreaded tales from the self-help literature than of original material. For someone with little exposure to the genre, this isn't a problem (thus my comment about the young person starting out). And I suppose that means the authors are using proven ideas rather than re-inventing the wheel. People will pay six figures for an Ivy League education (such that it is), and you can rest assured the syllabi, texts, and lectures are not completely rewritten each year.

What's original about this book is its theme. It centers on the story of the princess who kissed the frog. Said frog subsequently turned into a prince.

If we all would be more conscious and aware of what is going on inside and outside ... this book/audio would not be needed. It really tells you what is 100% true, sense making reality: water is flowing down hill. We know it all ... but for some mysterious reason most of us are denying what is working and fabricating distorting views of reality ... that lead to nothing.

Kiss that frog shows in a clear and easy way some common misunderstandings - and the way out. Great inspiration!

Brian Tracy usually does sales coaching and training. This is different. It's not rah rah stuff. It's real and thoughtful advice.This is personal development and insight that makes sense.

He covers why a child who is neglected or abused would then grow up and automatically blame and be defensive and angry at the world going forward. With some patience and insight, a person can start to see their own patterns causing grief in their own life.

I believe this and the book, Mindset, are excellent tools for understanding the big picture of human behavior, both providing logical guidelines to changing that behavior.

Yes, I do recommend this product.

Kiss That Frog! contains a series of practical, proven, easy-to-apply ideas and strategies that anyone can use to change their thinking from negative to positive.
The ideas in this book are based on more than 100 years of writing and research in psychology and psychotherapy and are presented in an easily digestible form that goes directly to the root of the reasons why people feel negatively about themselves and about various factors in their lives.
Every idea and instruction in this book has been tested and proven in the crucible of real life experiences, both by the authors (Brian Tracy and Christina Tracy Stein) and by the millions of other people worldwide whose lives have been positively affected by these simple principles.
Kiss That Frog is the much in news and the newest book by Brian Tracy. The interesting fact is that this book is co-authored by his daughter Christina Tracy Stein. Kiss That Frog offers 12 great ways to turn negatives into positives. It offers tangible plans that help you go to the route of the problem thereby offering solutions to turn them into positives.
Akin to other works by Tracy, I realized that this book too has great insights. If you have read Eat That Frog, you would know what I am talking about. Besides, I found something new and novel to apply in my day to day life as well. And am not just talking about work life, this book has so much to offer when it comes to personal life as well.
In a lucid way the authors have very convincingly taught us how to embrace the negative experiences in life and to get the most from a place where you have least expected to get solutions. What I especially liked in the book is that the authors explore topics like worry busters (a mandate in today’s world), gunny sackers and confronters versus evaders.
