About the Author
Steve Pavlina is widely recognized as the most successful personal-development blogger on the Internet, attracting more than two million monthly readers who value his unique insights. Instead of posing as a self-help guru with all the answers, Steve encourages people to fearlessly conduct their own personal growth experiments in order to learn through direct experience. He has written more than 700 free articles, often challenging his readers to question what they’ve been taught and to consider alternative perspectives. Blue-eyed, colorblind, and left-handed, Steve is the voice of recessive genes that seek creative expression instead of social conformity.
This is Steve’s first book.

A key thing would be to be honest with yourself while reading and going through the exercises. What's the point of reading a self improvement book if you lie to yourself? You are the ultimate authority of your life, take charge and make it the best life you can possibly have, because it's the only one you have.
While I don't agree with everything in it, it greatly exceeded my expectations and earned my recommendation. Read it! You won't be sorry.
I give this book an unqualified five stars, and have already recommended it to numerous friends (and gotten Steve a number of sales along the way). His approach is to break life into a trio of tenets, then explain how you can strengthen and build your life and paths to goals using those tenets and their components. More important than a book of preprogrammed to-do lists -- you create those based on your own personal interests and aims -- PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR SMART PEOPLE gives you the building blocks, and then lets you assemble them to create a stronger, more fulfilling life.
