Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this for free to review.
I feel like a secondary disclaimer is in order, for me to be fair to the author – this book is designed for you to read a page of it a day, and you’re assigned a set of activities to carry out each day to take you closer to achieving your goal. For the purposes of writing a review for this site, however, I didn’t follow it – I merely read it from cover to cover.
Fortunately, I still feel like I got a lot out of it, and I’m sure you’d get even more from it if you read it properly and followed up with the exercises that the author recommends. The whole point of this book, though, is to give you the confidence to go out there and become a success, and if you’re already on the path to success then if anything, doing the exercises will only slow you down.
Still, Harvey has some great advice that should help you to achieve your goals in life, and the bulk of the book is dedicated to starting you off in the habits that will set you in good stead long after the year is over. Once you think like a winner, you can act like a winner; once you act like a winner, you can become a winner.
There are a few exercises that I wasn’t too happy with, such as the suggestion that you should pray to say thank you even if you’re not religious, but I guess that you don’t have to do them if you don’t want to and to be honest, none of the activities are really essential. You can read the book one day at a time and follow all of the exercises until you become a success, or you can read the book in bulk and use the overall learnings it has to offer to help you on your way. It’s your choice, you need to make it.
