The writing is tired, terse, and tedious.
It is full of errors. Spelling, Grammar, Punctuation, and Font have turned into anarchists, while Exclamation Mark is particularly explosive, landing on almost every paragraph.
Repetitions abound. Everything is 'quite' difficult or 'quite' successful. It is lazy writing.
This book is also VERY short - 65 pages, each chapter being no more than 500 words or so. It's as if the author has (ineptly) summarized Wikipedia articles.
He has, however, added the occasional, vomit-inducing, 'motivational' sentences: "They believed in themselves and in their ideas until their ideas became a reality! This is my desire for you that you will take one idea you have had or an idea this book has inspired you to have and pursue it until it becomes reality."
Just awful. It's a joke.
But unfortunately at $4.99 the joke's on us.
Please, please don't waste your money on this book.
Mr. Maxwell evidently doesn't care much about things like grammar or punctuation. He absent-mindedly forgets the period at the end of the last sentence of chapter 4. There are other errors such as words running together or font sizes that display inconsistently in chapter headings. Evidently, nobody proofread this book. It was interesting ONLY as an example of what NOT to do as an author. Like a train wreck, I couldn't look away. Ultimately, however, it is a waste of time.
There is nothing inspirational in this book. After 31 poorly written little biographical entries about famous people (each one would be less than one page of a standard sheet of paper) Maxwell lamely tries to weave together all their success with just one short paragraph in which he says that the one thing all the stories have in common is that the people in them believed in themselves and never gave up.
Next, there's one poorly written sentence that says how much he wants you to believe in yourself. That's it. That's the whole premise of his book.
Then he goes on to plug his own book about setting goals. A review of that book indicated that it too is full of typos.
The only purpose of Maxwell's e-book is to dupe readers into paying good money for a pretty cover. Mr.Read more ›
