From the Inside Flap

What do you really want?

Don't think of what you should want, but think of what you really want. If no one was looking and you didn't have to worry about what other people thought, what would you do? What would you have? Who would you be? Think hard...

Got it?

Now, how do you get it? It's a simple question. Or is it? The quickest way to reach your goals is to follow a straight line, but for various reasons, this rarely happens. simple?ology presents a system for seeing the world, and acting in it, in a way that will not only allow you to achieve whatever it is you desire, but also unshackle yourself from the invisible chains that seem to dictate the direction of your life.

simple?ology shows you clearly and simply how to bridge the gap between your dreams and reality, helping you focus on the simple actions that get you somewhere, rather than those actions that lead you off-course.

Ask yourself now, are you living the life you truly want? Look inside and you may be surprised. Combining cutting-edge science and research with practical, proven methods for achievement, simple?ology is Mark Joyner's everyday user's manual for your brain. It explains how you perceive the world, and how the world and other people in it erect invisible barriers between you and what you really want.

Inside, you'll discover:

  • The shocking ways governments, marketers, and even your friends are battling for control of your mind

  • Have you ever spoken to someone and thought to yourself  "this person is insane," though you couldn't put your finger on why? Now you'll be able to figure out what's wrong and prevent them from driving you crazy too

  • How to unleash the truly awesome power of your brain by learning to swap "brain operating systems" at will

  • A "programming language for the brain" that shows you how to use your full mental power to get the things you want in life

  • How to prevent nearly all misunderstandings andconflict in human interactions

  • And how to get instant access to an exclusive free twenty-one-day companion course and high-tech "Personal Action Management" software package

Stop wandering around in circles! Take home simple?ology and take the straight-line path to the life you've been dreaming of.

Format: Hardcover
I wrote about listening to the audio book back in June and have since checked out the web site. I feel I have better footing now to give an assessment. Unfortunately, I have to side with the naysayers. I am not sure whether or not I would use the term "scam" to describe the book, but I would certainly go with "Bait and switch". The book claims to teach you a system to get what you want in life. It then spends the first 80% or so of the book talking about how marketers think and how they manipulate. The part that is the reason most readers presumably bought the book is underdeveloped and tacked on at the end. It contains such advice as "don't be distracted from your goal". Well, I'd like not to be distracted, but I already knew that. How? It doesn't say. It does give an oversimplified example using a glass of water. But there is nothing in the book that translates the philosophy from glasses of water to real life.

To learn what you need, you have to sign up for the "free" web site. I put "free" in quotes because although you pay no money, it will cost you in time. Joyner is a marketer by trade and this site is pure marketing. You do get some material for free, and it may be helpful. I wasn't able to get much out of it, but that could be because I was not in a place to really embrace the system. Instead, I was overwhelmed by the barrage of emails with other products and services from Mark and people he trusts (his affiliates) that would "take me to the next level" or be "the next big thing" and were "limited time opportunities". I had to get in before he "opened it up to the rest of the world". In this respect, I found Simpleology amusingly like Penn and Teller. He told us exactly how the trick was done with all the chapters on marketing.

I must admit I bought this book because I think Mark Joyner did a terrific job with his online Simpleology program. I signed up for that program and found it useful, informative and inspiring. Considering the title of Mark Joyners book I thought I would receive an in-depth elaboration about achieving what you want similar to his online program. This however was not the case. And I must admit thus a little disappointing.

Although the book didn't fulfill my expectation I found nevertheless easy to read and the subject it covered interesting enough to read the whole book.

I bought this book when it first came out. After eagerly reading it in one sitting (on an airplane) I kept waiting for it to tell me something useful. It did not. I also signed up for the Simpleology 101 course. It is entirely possible that I have done enough productivity improvement work over the years, but I did not find anything useful in the course either. The part that I find the most odd, is that despite the fact that Mark tries to help you become more productive, he floods your e-mail box with incredibly long time wasting e-mails daily. Whats up with that? His software crashed my computer. As other reviewers have stated, "it took over my computer." That was a bummer because that was the only thing of Mark's that I found remotely useful.

Title of the book and reviews were one of the main reasons that I purchased the book..Well,if only the book was as nice as the cover!

The Author from newzealand meanders on everything like someone who writes a personal journal in bedtime with sections like Asylum,Invisible Walls,Disposable reality and slowly taking us to the 'ultimate' section.." The simple science of getting what you want"..The book offers no real solutions, not even close to a simple science..Most of the topics are discussed by nearly every 'feelgood and motivating' author ( example :power of using emotional words like enemy and patriot,creating our model of the world with using computer as an example -CPU = mind processing power and RAM = amount of info you can process, OS = your model of the world etc)

I would excuse the author wasting my time, had he be little mindful of how annoying to read this book with funny ( as the author might have thought) discussion between fictitious characters Dave, Barrat and Fool. Equally annoying are the paragraphs that are small and tiny . Each paragraph is 2 or 3 lines, empty space, a paragraph of 2 lines, empty lines etc..makes it an eyesor..A sampler from page 136

"""So perhaps these hardwired Limitations are a blessing

What do we know of these mechanisms?

Not much , we have a few clues """

The book goes on and on like this ..in bits and pieces..Skip this book and read something sensible like "road less travelled" . If you have read that book, read it again..and again..!

Simpleology is a book that will alternatively have you scratching your head and thinking and then blowing your mind with some of the most insightful ideas on success you'll ever hear.

The author helps you draw a very clear path from where you are to what you want, not what you think you should want, but what you really want. He makes getting it simple, efficient and predictable.

The chapters on defective mental hardware are some of the most sound thinking and well described examples of how we defeat ourselves. Those are followed by the final chapters which give you the programming language you need to easily and completely create your future and have all the things that you really want.

At the end of the book you'll find yourself scratching your head again and wondering, how was I hoodwinked so easily for all those years.

But the book explains that too.

This is a must read if you are a seeker, entrepreneur, parent, thinker or skeptic.

I wasn't able to put it down and I don't think you will either.
