I'm thinking a better title for Thinking Anew might be Writing Anew. It's part self-help book, it's part work book and every bit a tool that can help make your ideas and thoughts a reality, without getting in the way. Authors Eugene F. Moynihan Jr. and Richard F. Quis have released the must-read guide to bringing organic and life-altering thoughts to life while becoming crystal clear about what you don't want so you can discover, and concentrate on what you want out of life. With chapters titled - Follow Your Bliss, The Power of Positive Anticipation,and Exorcism of the Negative, you can tell this book has a powerful message. Writing and public speaking are the fears of many, this book let's you see that writing can be therapeutic and good for the body, mind and soul. It's your own words and you don't have to let others see what you have written. Rick C. Limpert is a freelance writer and columnist Atlanta Gadgets Examiner --Atlanta Gadgets Examiner.com

We continued to share and I was quite interested in his story. Mr. Rogers was retired from the military and was heading back home from his brother’s funeral in Texas. He said he was the youngest of eight. His brother died of cancer. I shared that I was returning from the breast cancer walk in Charlotte, NC and how amazing it was to be a part of the walk. He went on to tell me that he lead monthly meetings for the veterans, they were drug and alcohol recovery groups. He said his next meeting was Friday (4 days away). He mentions that the meeting on Friday was called "What in Hell do you want" and by the way, can I buy this book somewhere?
I turned the pages to share more of the book to find myself tearing out about six pages I had written over the past few days. I closed the book and said “I’d like for you to receive this gift that keeps giving." Mr. Rogers was so very touched. He said, ‘God is so good.” He accepted the book as I said, “Enjoy.” He began to read it and was quiet for some time. I saw him close the book and then reopen to say, "Would you be so kind to autograph this book for me".
I was honored to be seated next to Mr. Rogers on flight 1285 today. I shared my email address and asked him to send me an email with his comment to be shared with the two of you.
Thank you for the opportunity to share once again.
The approach is new in that there is a very limited amount of information/instructions given to you. Instead, your success will depend on your commitment to and active participation in doing the exercises/writing that is recommended by Mr. Moynihan.
"You must commit to the discipline of writing daily in this book. This commitment, if applied consistently, is foolproof". While this is a very strong statement, I believe that the results will be directly inline with your commitment to doing the writing.
The introduction to this book, the instructional/content part goes into the philosophy behind this book. Our results in life are based on the way we think. If we want different results, we need to change our beliefs. By writing what we want on a daily basis, with the positive expectation that we will achieve our goals, we can alter our beliefs and therefore attract our goals in life to us.
Mr. Moynihan is a licensed psychotherapist and has used this technique in his practice for years. According to him, the results have been outstanding - so good that he says if you follow this method, the results will happen. The key is to do the writing consistently. Do it daily.
The book is designed like the composition books we used in school. The first 35 pages contain the forward, the introduction and some writing examples. Then there are some 160 composition pages for the reader to use for their daily writing assignments.
The concept and instructions are very straightforward. This is not a difficult book to read or understand. You are not required to accept some far out belief system. However, if you don't have the discipline to do the suggested exercises, you will not gain the value promised by this book.
The authors have made this as simple as they could have. They have given you the tools and examples for you to follow. What is required of the reader is the commitment to write the exercises on a daily basis. This can be accomplished in half hour per day. But to get the value from this book, you must commit to and consistently do the writing.
I was provided a review copy of this book.
The book looks like an empty composition book - the kind you can buy for 50¢ when the school year starts. In fact, that's almost what it is. Despite the page count of 200, in fact there are only 34 pages of text - the rest are blank.
This is basically a self-help essay and a short list of writing topics, not that different from many other similar essays, sold at a premium price.
No... length isn't everything. But it also isn't nothing.
Do I feel ripped off - yes!
