A promising perspective and a better attitude.

Having struggled with weight and self esteem issues most of my life, I was a bit apprehensive in diving into another book which would point the blame at me. This book however has changed my life in so many ways. Vincent Cocilovo writes in a way that makes you feel like this book was written for you, that he is sitting in a room with you telling you what needs to be done. So many other books out there are so intimidating in their text, they scare you with statistics, gross you out with a meal plan and just plainly make you feel like you will never lose weight. Not this book. This book completely changed my attitude about feeling good about myself. It made me realize that I could accomplish anything once I learn to love myself ( a task which seems hard, but within the first chapter you realize that it is possible.) With "Build Your Mind, Your Body Will Follow" the reader is shown a different perspective, and instead of crying out of humility and embarassment, I was crying out of satisfaction and I felt like a new person. At last! Someone shows what being fit and weight loss is about! It's not just about how many calories you need to burn in a day- it's about the mental aspect and this book clearly exemplifies that. Whenever I am feeling down or frustrated, I reread Cocolivo's book. This book also makes me feel like I am not alone. When you deal with self esteem issues you think that no one else is going through the same thing but after reading this book I realize that is not the case. Cocilovo writes this book in such a way that he makes it seem as though he truly understands. If a complete stranger can tell me to love myself, then why can't I love myself? After reading this book, I do! It has gotten me on the right track and has made such a difference in my life. I will always keep this book close to me because sometimes you just need that extra motivation which Vincent Cocilovo truly delivers.

Not worth it

Before buying based on the title like I did, ask yourself if this would work for you: "Love is a powerful thing...You are Life, Life is Love, You are love, and thus You are 'a powerful thing'...." For me, that's just silliness dressed as logic, and it has nothing to do...
Before buying based on the title like I did, ask yourself if this would work for you: "Love is a powerful thing...You are Life, Life is Love, You are love, and thus You are 'a powerful thing'...." For me, that's just silliness dressed as logic, and it has nothing to do with motivation to lead a healthy lifestyle.

    Not What I Was Looking For

    The author talked so much about inspiring people that it was overload for me. I wanted a book that explained how to target certain parts of the body and how to exercise them. But instead it was how to motivate people to exercise. I was very disappointed.
