    Systematic

    I love books with a structure. Predictable like lessons, I know what to expect from each section, which makes the content all the more important. This book delivers on content, give timelessly good suggestions and asks very deep questions. Just answering the questions the author asks at the end of each chapter is enough to launch you in a good direction.

    Everything Begins With A Thought.

    Change the way you think, and you'll change the way you live. It's true, isn't it? This book gets to the root of all actualizations - thinking. Answer the questions in this book and you will realize your thinking patterns. It will help you identify the areas in your thinking that you want to improve on. Definitely worth the time and money. I also recommend the book "Failing Forward" by the same author.
    I hope this review begins your thinking journey

    Thinking differently is the key to success.

    I love the way this book helps me to put a process to my thoughts, making thinking something that is planned from day to day, month to month, even year to year. Taking the time to be better through thought.

    Short and to the point

    This book gets right into the meat and potatoes... without all the extra calories ;)

    Very easy to listen too and follow. Long enough to get in all the good stuff but short enough not to loose your attention. If your interested in learning about new ways of thinking, this is a good place to start.
