Canfield and coauthors Mark Hansen and Les Hewitt recommend that we concentrate on our strengths, set goals, and focus on them. Canfield and Hansen created the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, which now has 27 titles and has sold 47.5 million copies. They have added new ingredients to their pot; their mix now includes a weekly television show, electronic games, and even refrigerator magnets. All the while, though, their basic stock has remained the same: inspirational, heartwarming, and homey stories that make people feel good. Now they detail 10 "focusing strategies" they say they used to get their first books published and to build on their success. The authors include new stories and their own personal anecdotes to show the importance of having successful habits, creating balance, maintaining confidence, building excellent relationships, etc. David Rouse
"The revised special 10th Anniversary Edition of the highly influential The Power of Focus packs enough power to permit anyone to pluck out a proven effective plan that will overcome any obstacle. That's quite a statement to make, but more than 600,000 people around the world have been captivated by the simple, practical, and profound strategies contained in the original bestseller. Now a decade later, authors Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, and Les Hewitt have joined forces to update this enduring classic in a magnificent way that's relevant to today.
The front and back covers are mere handles that envelope a tool of great power. The book guides you through action plans that are isolated into 11 highly detailed chapters that focus with laser-like intensity on the specific steps to take to achieve your goals, and the authors provide fill-in-the-blank pages for you to tailor the plans to fit your specific circumstances. Accompanying each chapter are eloquent real life testimonies from people that encountered the same difficulties as you, but overcame the challenges with these proven effective measures. Fill your sails with new wind, chart a new course to follow, and unearth the inspiration you need to persevere no matter what the problem. Your success is assured.
Readers cannot complete the book without becoming galvanized into forceful action. You are promised that achievement looms just ahead, but beware―readers usually find their outlook transformed into one of expectancy, as if their victory over difficulties and triumph over adversity floats toward them like a message in a bottle tossed in a turbulent sea yet coming straight at them. That transformation from despondency to expectancy is the golden nugget at the core of the book. Dig in and find yours."

While many of the ideas--the danger of busyness, differing leadership styles, and the need for clarity of vision are longstanding concepts, the author brings them together and fleshes them out with fresh, practical and achievable applications.
Bottom line: Kudos for a broad, yet approachable text surveying modern leadership ideals.

Don't get me wrong, you're not going to read this book and have your life miraculously change. I believe the authors say it best in their final words. "All the strategies we have shared with you really work. They can dramatically change your life for the better. But only if you choose to use them".
The book focuses on ten strategies to help you reach your maximum potential in your business, personal and financial life. Some of these strategies may sound simplistic to you at first, but putting deodorant on a fever blister to draw out the moisture sounds simplistic too. The point is, simple can often achieve the results your looking for. There's no sense in over-complicating things.
Each of the ten strategies are outlined in their own chapter and followed by practical "action steps" to coach you along. You will find other exercises as well. I recommend buying this book along with a spiral notebook. You'll need it.
If you're ready to take actionable steps in improving every aspect of your life, this book is definitely for you.
