I picked up this book because I’ve been asked to read and review it for a client, but I was pleasantly surprised by its contents, even if it did drag for a little while. I think part of the problem is that Brockis separates the book into twelve key areas and gives each of those areas a chapter, when sometimes there just isn’t enough content to fill them up.
Still, if you want to learn more about how to be your best, especially with the backing of a medical practitioner and a number of authoritative studies, this book is a pretty good one for you to check out. I was actually quite impressed by how thorough the medical side of the research was, to the point at which I even gave it the time of day when it talked about stuff like meditation and mindfulness even though I’ve historically been a skeptic. Perhaps part of that is because of a friend of mine is a bit of a hippie and she’s been starting to show me how it can all help out in practice.
If you only read one or two business books per year then don’t bother with this one, but it’s certainly worth picking up if you just can’t get enough and you’re constantly looking for an extra edge. So there’s that.
