177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class by Steve Siebold is a very informative and insightful book. I too only wish that I would have known about this book sooner, but at least I know now. The following are some passages of the book that I found very helpful and that resonated with me (and to share with others a glimpse of this great information):

Pg. 60 secret #28: Champions are Comeback Artists: I enjoy how the author gives helpful tidbits on examples of people that have pulled themselves up by their bootstraps. The fact that he lists this lesson as perserverance on the physical plane, toughness on the mental plane, and artistry on the spiritual place is very inspiring.
pg. 114 secret #70: The Great Ones are Products of their Own Imagination: The author mentions who champions combine action with imagination. The action step is really fun as well (he encourages you to allow your imagination to run wild with ideas of your perfect life).
Pg. 155 secret #99: The Great Ones are Aware of their Limitless Potential: This statement really stood out for me because I watched a really fun movie called Limitless that starred Bradley Cooper less than two months ago. The "Limitless" movie illustrated the potential realities possible when unlimited potential is tapped into. This is similiar to the message that I believe that author is trying to send with this secret when he emphasizes that champions wake up one day and realize that their possibilities and potentials that symbolize the unlimited arena.
Pg. 193 secret #124: The World Class Believes in Self-Reliance: Steve mentions how the core of fullfillment comes from within yourself and that the world class learns to rely on themselves to get the answers from within.

Format: Paperback
I have read hundreds of self-help books.This book was one of the most useful.

The cons:The book is like 2 breathless teenage boys looking at pictures of teenage girls.Every fifth word is "unbelievable" "amazing".The whole book has an phoniness to it.The style is very outdated,some sort of Amway rally style.Later when I went to their webpage it turns out Amway is one of his clients.

The pros:After you got resistant to their breathless style,you can benefit from the precise and concise list of attributes for success.Of course nothing is new but I still benefited "tremendously".

This is it! Out of all the reading I've done this year this has been by far the most valuable book I have read. The main reason is that it's mostly a quick overview of hundreds of other books on self-improvement distilled to their most practical points. During the book he constantly guides you to other books you should read and tells you why you should read them. I will be re-reading this book in the future and will be reading many of the suggested books. Wonderful little book that can make a difference in your life quickly if you allow it to. I finished it just before a big job interview and it gave me the confidence to do a lot better. We will see if I did get the job or not how good the book really is. Either way this one is well worth a read! Don't miss it.

177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class has some of the same information as every other motivational book, but it also has some new angles and most importantly it takes a critical thinking viewpoint of the information. Instead of being a rah rah, get you motivated for an hour type of book with no real substance, it details real actionable thinking steps to, if followed, lead to steady progress. It is not for everybody, if you are not really in the mindset and ready to truly look at your actions and habits and change what needs to be changed, than go find a rah rah book to give you a quick high. This book forces you to dig deep and ask yourself if you are really doing what it takes to achieve your goals and visions. I highly recommend for high achievers and those on there way to becoming one.

Because this book purports to be based on real-life research, observation and study, I expected to encounter useful examples and grounding of its claims. There are almost no examples, either about ordinary people or about famous ones. The book stays at a "you must believe me" level of generality throughout. It's also poorly edited, with no paragraph breaks anywhere in the book. I agree with the one-star review that calls it a set of platitudes. You may find it inspirational, but I found it sloppy and unworthy of being taken seriously.

This single book opened my eyes to the levels of awareness of the society I live in, and where I could change my own way of thinking. Living in a world with an understanding of critical thinking and objective reality has impacted my life, and I believe it can impact the lives of everyone who reads it. IF you are open to evaluating your own life critically (and honestly). Must read book for everyone on this side of the flowers.

This book is very much a motivational type book which contains many short articles on various topics. They can be summarized into several major categories:

1. Strong self-awareness. Know what your strength, weakness, emotions, habits, thoughts, etc. well.
2. Be confident, bold positive, fun.
3. Integrity and honesty.
4. Strong focus and commitment.
5. Collaborative.
6. Have big goal and dream.
7. Work for fulfillment, not merely success or money.
8. Have balanced life.

These are good suggestions and I mostly agree. However, there are several contradicting messages among them:

1. The book quoted Lance Armstrong more than once for his dedication to success. Unfortunately, Lance is disgraced sports figure who used illegal performance enhancing drugs, just to boost his chance of winning. It is the direct result of winning at any cost this book teaches. While the book also promotes integrity and honesty, the reference of Lance Armstrong is quite ironic and makes the teaching much weaker. Lance Armstrong really should be quotes as a negative example - winning should not be at any cost.

2. Again - on balance of life. Some chapters talks about winning needs commitment, dedication and sacrifice. However these are usually opposite of life balance. Imagine you have family with kids and wife. Winning at business usually means sacrificing time with family. But if you want family life, you may not be able to commit 12 hours by 7 days type of work style. In the end, it all depends on how you think about happiness and fulfillment - is it about your work, or your family? However, the author has been quite elusive on this front. It looks that the author values more about work than family.
