By Daniel B. Kennedy on March 11, 2006
Format: Hardcover
The title on the dust jacket of this book is backed by hundreds of small, faint phrases, all starting with the word "MORE," like MORE LOVE and MORE WEALTH. You'll read the word, in caps, throughout the inside of this book, too, perhaps to remind you that you don't have enough in the first place. (As an antidote, read "How to Want What You Have: Discovering the Magic and Grandeur of Ordinary Existance," by Timothy Miller.) Ms. Wright has a business to run and nowhere is this more evident than when she writes, "Living your One Decision requires support, encouragement, inspiration, and training." She provides it all, too, with a website, a team of coaches and seminars galore. Frankly, I think this is fine. Humans that we are, we can use some support in pursuit of things that aren't easily had. Just be warned that this book is a funnel to MORE of what the author wants you to buy, as well. The text itself is rambling but, again, it's what's on the cover that gets my attention, this time 'round back. There, celeb endorser, Ken Blanchard, is quoted as saying, "The power of The One Decision by Judith Wright lies in the fact that it's great advice being offered with no strings attached." Really? Then why is the author pushing the need for her coaching, and seminars, and other things? Did Blanchard even read this book? And did the other fellow-authors, whose quotes are used?

Many people send a lifetime looking for their path. Many people give up in the process and live ordinary lives. It is a choice. It is a decision.

I read all the feedback written on this site. I respect that their opinion is coming from the place of where they are at that particular time.

This book is inspirational. This book isn't for everyone. If you are hearing the dialogue in your mind answer, "Then, who is this book for?" Then reading this book MAY be right for you.

We can only go as far in life as the five people we surround ourselves with. This is so true and its taken me over half a life time to learn this. But this includes books too. If we read negative topics, we will attract negative into our life. This is the way the universal energies, and quantum phyics proves this, works.

Even if we are upbeat person, living with such negative media exposure can get the best of people down. Reading books like Ms. Wright's helps to balance, reignite that positive way of living that we need to attract our desires.

Ms. Wright uses the word MORE many times throughout the book, TRUE. That's repetition. And there is a reason for repetition. This is the way human's learn. We don't absorb things just because we placed a book under our pillows. We need to hear messages, good positive messages over and over again.

I would have enjoyed the book had it been 75 to 100 pages less, however, I do believe Ms. Wright was writing from a place of soul, a place of universial energy.

If someone is lost on what ladder their wall should be leaning against, this book will help propel and stablize that ladder. I wish many of these great books were available when I was a teenager.

THe most blatant form of self promotion for a codified, consumer-driven "spirituality." Ever other sentence isn't her just trying to communicate something, but rather sell you something. So calculated to be trade marked, that the book has no soul, no authenticity of it's own. It's like a desperate child trying to convince you of it's self worth. Despicable. She and husband Bob don't even know how far gone they are in trying to copyright "MORE" - the word, always in capitol letters, another word she is re-defining for the childish reader. Bob and Judith seem to live their live, panting for the day Oprah gives the word - you book is worthy, now you are MORE. Disgusting. Simplistic, opportunistic and insulting to readers and seekers of an authentic life.

Judith Wright's One Decision shows how to live life at its fullest. A One Decision, she says, is "a life-defining decision about the quality of your life." It's the decision that provides a guiding philosophy to your life and, as such, "can transform the fabric and foundation of your life."

When cyclist Lance Armstrong learned he had cancer, she says, he made a One Decision: live strong. Everything he did since flowed from that decision.

The challenge, Judith says, is to learn how to live your One Decision and allow it to power and inform daily choices. To show how, each chapter explains a characteristic of a One Decision and tells stories of people who use a One Decision as a basis for leading purposeful and satisfying lives.

Judith writes in the American philosophical and self-improvement tradition that began with Benjamin Franklin, in which ideas, knowledge, and information serve to make life easier, more productive, and more satisfying. That the book has been endorsed by today's preeminent business writers and trainers, including Tom Peters, Ken Blanchard, and Steven Covey, confirms its eminently practical nature.

Read, reflect--and decide.
