Top Customer Reviews
When I was trying to figure out how to review a book like this, I decided that the only way was to see if it did what it promised. I chose a business idea that I wanted to generate a breakthrough for. Then I followed the book's program. It worked.
There are three reasons why it worked. The recommendations in it are based on solid, behavioral science principles. There is a specific, but not too specific program for you to follow. And, both the book and the program are short.
The program works because the recommendations in it are based on solid behavioral science principles and human nature. You're asked to do lots of small things, such as actions, sharing, and requests, and do them every day. .
Doing lots of things gives you an emotional investment in the product itself. Because you're going to get lots of "yes's" and successes doing small things, you generate the kind of emotional momentum that's hard to stop.
There's another benefit to all that asking and talking. You wind up with a lot of people who are interested in your project.
Half way through the two weeks, we went to a dinner party. Among the guests was someone I'd talked to about my project. "Hey," he said, "I've been meaning to call you." He launched into an idea to move things forward.
That started a train of conversation at the table that involved others. People contributed ideas and support.
The program works because there is a specific, but not too specific program for you to follow. The author provides you with things to do every day for fourteen days.Read more ›
The two weeks that Lisa talks about is basically the length of time it takes for you to create a habit and stick to it.
The book provides a base of knowledge for the reader to help get your mind into the right frame to make a breakthrough. Not only do you think about things that you can do to reach that breakthrough, you take all the steps necessary to reach that breakthrough.
Absolutely great book. Spend $17 and read this book...it could change your life.
