    The information in Ask More Get More is not only inspirational but realistic. Too many self-help/business books offer advice that is unrealistic to the average person. Michael Alden shares easy to use and easy to apply techniques that any person from any background to implement and change their lives. I couldn't put it down.

    ¿Ask More, Get More¿ is an encouraging and up-beat self-help boo

    “Ask More, Get More” is an encouraging and up-beat self-help book that gives you the tools to succeed—by implementing tools such as using your imagination, engaging in contrarian thinking, building value in yourself, and more. 

    Unlike in many self-help books, the chapters are not separate and you need to read them in order—each builds upon the one before it to give you a strong foundation for pursuing (and achieving) success in business and the financial benefits that entails. The book is divided into three sections—Ask More from Yourself, Ask More from Others, and Ask More from Life—and the author uses plentiful personal examples to show how his advice is simple but effective. In addition to building intangible skills, such as thinking positively, the author also gives very grounded and real-life techniques in negotiating with others and how to save money (from reducing your water usage to going on vacation for free). 

    One of my favorite things about “Ask More, Get More” was the author’s use of autobiographical detail to bolster his words—not only is his life story interesting and inspirational, his willingness to share those details makes you as a reader trust him and it shows that his advice is solid. I also liked how he freely and usefully refers to other inspirational businessmen/writers such as Zig Ziglar, Jim Shriner, and Napoleon Hill, cohesively and comprehensively integrating their advice and observations with his own.

    Another positive of “Ask More, Get More” is its conversational, approachable writing style—it’s unfailingly positive but not soft, as the author makes it clear that excuses only hold you back. And as someone who doesn’t always (okay, rarely) enjoys their job, I found the author’s section on not going to work (but rather recasting your job in your mind as a place to grow skills and invest in yourself), particularly insightful and helpful. I would recommend “Ask More, Get More” to anyone who would like more financial, professional, and personal success, whether that person is an entrepreneur or an entry level worker.
