By Robert Morris HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 22, 2009
Format: Hardcover
I have read and reviewed most of Brian Tracy's previously published books and hold him high regard because he has helped so many people to overcome the barriers to their personal as well as professional development, especially when many (if not most) of the limits are self-imposed. Tracy agrees with what Henry Ford observed long ago: "Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right." When climbing mountains, ladders, whatever, attitude usually does determine altitude. But he also realizes that many people feel overwhelmed by their circumstances, have no self-confidence, and need help in the form of sound, practical, step-by-step advice. Tracy positions himself as a counselor, not as a cheerleader. In this book, he shares his thoughts about a process of reinvention that can enable almost anyone to achieve whatever goals they may have.

In Chapter Two, the reader is asked to begin a series of exercises (many of which are completed within the book) and continue until the last chapter. Tracy realizes that, more often than not, "haste makes waste" and certainly advises against impulsive behavior, especially when making decisions, but he does urge his reader to "move fast when an opportunity or need presents itself. Pick up the pace. Take action of some kind. Get on it with it!" Completion of the various exercises helps to expedite the process of personal reinvention while reinforcing Tracy's key points. I also recommend use of a notebook or journal in which to record thoughts and feelings, express concerns, document key developments, etc. Personal reinvention consists of both a journey and destination. Those embarked on that process should be results-driven.

Given the massive turmoil in the economy, millions of job losses and business failures everywhere, Brian Tracy's latest book, "Reinvention" is a perfect solution to help all of us develop a new path forward.

This book is ideal for anyone who's facing difficult changes right now, or wishes to improve and "re-engineer" their life. I've been a longtime Brian Tracy fan, he's one of the few core people who's had a dramatic impact on my life, and this book adds to the knowledge you can get from studying Brian Tracy's winning approach.

Specifically, what's new and different about "Reinvention", and why I recommend it so highly, is:

+ It has a very methodical, proven step-by-step process you can use to "take stock" of where you're at, and how to map out a plan for actions to be taken moving forward.

+ Interactive activities, eg self-check lists and inventories designed to help you highlight what you're best at, how to benefit from it, and what personal strategic direction you want to move forward with.

+ For those seeking jobs, Brian's put together an entire chapter on how to get the perfect job you want, including new tips that are action-oriented and focused for results.

+ Chapter 6, my favorite, is entitled "How Do You Get Ahead?", and contains tons of new tactics that Brian hasn't shared anywhere else yet (like how to "Become Profit-Oriented in Your Business", for example).

+ Tactics for helping you reinvent yourself and put together a plan that will motivate you to "give yourself the benefit of the doubt", during tough times, to find out what direction you want to head in next, and to get started moving in a positive, specific action-oriented manner forward.

I thought this book would be about reinventing your life. In fact, it's how to get a better job and progress in your career. It suggests working longer hours and working harder. That's not my idea of making the best of my life. I've already improved my life by working less for more money. If you're look for a book about working hard, then this may be for you. If you're looking for a book about reinventing your life, then no point getting this, unless your idea of reinvention is work, work, work. What about, health, exercise, family, leisure?

I suppose it was to be expected. You read enough of these self-helpy books and they start repeating themselves something awful.

I don't mind that in general. After all, the reason there are so many is that it's valuable to hear the same thing from multiple angles, said differently, etc.

But Brian Tracy, as much as I love him, has really exhausted the well and seems to just be retreading his own old ground.

Sure, it's fine. If you're not familiar with Brian Tracy's work then I would recommend this pretty strongly. But if you've read any two of "Eat That Frog", "Goals!", "No Excuses!", "Master Strategies For Higher Achievement" or "The Power of Self Confidence" then just skip this. It's the same stuff all over again.

If you lost your job or are thinking of something better or different, this book can give you some good insights.
Only thing I didn't like was Brian Tracy saying, always put the Company first. Companies do use people too. He needs to talk a bit about leaving your job too if you don't like it. It's really a 'At Will' employment now.
