Posted June 3, 2004
Brian Tracy discusses how to apply the major principles of success and how to achieve your goals. These principles are very familiar to anyone who has participated in success programs or read success literature, so you will sense some déjà vu. Still, Tracy writes with an authoritative, engaging voice, and presents these basic principles as a well-organized quick read, complete with examples. His description of the various ¿laws¿ of nature that produce success, such as the ¿Law of Cause and Effect,¿ the ¿Law of Subconscious Activity¿ and the ¿Law of Belief,¿ contribute to the book¿s feeling of authority, although the basis for calling such patterns of action and outcome ¿laws¿ may be uncertain. Yet, the device works well here, and many readers like to be told exactly what steps to take. In short, we recommend this zippy retelling of popular prescriptions for success ¿ though the prescription is like mother¿s old-fashioned medicine: nothing new, but it goes down very well.Was this review helpful?

This was a pretty easy reading book. There weren't many surprises in the info given, although he does present it from a different viewpoint. I think it could be a great book if the reader applies the principles given, which I have already started doing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I admit that I was skeptical when I saw the title of this book, however, the author offers up a 12-principled plan to a more positive, action-oriented life. A definite must-read for anyone who is feeling a little lost in this tough climate. Thanks Mr. Tracy, this is just what the doctor orderedWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
