    I liked this read but didn't Love it :/

    I liked this read but it didn't teach me anything new. It was encouraging some. I like the concept of become a Rhino buuut the ideas just didn't stick with me. Is not a life changing but just meant for a quick encouraging read. Don't go into this book thinking you will learn how to apply anything, it's just meant for encouragement...

    Highly Recommended - for every member of the family!

    Yes this book is great if you are business person trying to be successful...but it is so much more! It is a way of thinking for every aspect of your life, and how I would love my children to think going forward. It is written in a fun way that by the end you just cannot wait to be a Rhino! Also a great book to keep going back to when you might stray a little to get that Rhino gusto back! Don't hesitate...read it today!

    Not worth the ink it took to print it.

    This book has only one statement to make, which I'm not sure is worth making in the first place, and says it over and over. The book has nothing to do with a rhino and insults the endangered animal by alluding to it in such a manner. I would give it less than one star if possible.

    Must Read!

    After reading this book, you will be trying to get your hands on more copies to give to friends. Many top companies are now providing, or recommending, this book to their top staff members. In fact one high profile business owner has stated that, "I require our new people to read this book when they start working on my team."

    The book has been a life changer for multitudes of people such as Bear Grylls, whose mother gave him a copy of the book for his 10th birthday. He has made a point of re-reading it every year since. Bear went on to become the youngest Briton to climb Mount Everest, doing so at age 23. Today Bear Grylls is a best selling author, an international motivational speaker, and the host of the television series Man vs. Wild, known as Born Survivor in the United Kingdom.

    This is not a long book, and that`s intentional. In fact, you can read this book in one sitting. If you are serious about success, you should read this book on a regular basis. Its brevity and simplicity are its strength.

    The rhinoceros is used as an example throughout the book because they tolerate no natural predators in the animal kingdom. Not only are they covered with a thick skin, but they are the very definition of toughness and brute force and they are equipped with a deadly horn should it be needed. The author compares the rhino's attributes against the complacence of cows. If there is an animal to emulate greatness it's the rhino, not the cow.

    There are many - too many - books about success and motivation, but this one goes to the heart of the matter. This book should be in your library of success, and at the end of your tongue should a prospective employer ask about books you have read.

    Absolutely Terrific

    'Rhonoceros Success' was given to me by a close friend and I am grateful that this book fell into my hands! This book is jam-packed with life lessons that ultimately guide you toward prosperity and abundance in all areas of life. It clearly charts out the path of success and if you heed the recommendations, wealth will surely follow. I especially enjoyed the part about happiness. Since everyone chooses their own state of mind, choose to be happy and you will be happy! That alone is a simple concept that has very powerful ramifications (positive) if you make the choice. Treat yourself to success and buy this book ASAP! - Dr. Matthew J. Loop (Author of 'Cracking the Cancer Code')

    I believe that I am not a weak person

    Fisrt of all my brother in law sended the book to me back in December. Is in Spanish version. I start reading it one night then I stop I was interested but now as much. I keep the book in my night stand.One night I open the book and could not stop reading it, I got so into the book that I slept so late. Next day I felt confident an important. I have faith in God, then one more time he asure me that he always is there for me, any time I call on him. I feel now,that in this world nobody is better them me, we all are creation of God and very important in our own way. If we realized that otherwise, we can see the world blue and sad. By reading the book I realized that I can conquest my dreams, I tell my children, that this world is going crazy but that does not mean, we need to be come one more in the meaninless person. And remember that money do not make you happy if you don't know how to spend it and share it. What is important is love, faith and confidence, and family. Of course and do forget that what ever you set to do, do it don't hesitate go for it.

    Rhino's for dummy's

    I HATE reading self help books. They are filled with pompus blow hards. THIS BOOK IS GREAT! Short engaging read that might just change your life. If B&N can't get it call 800-872-3274. It's the number in the book.

    Change your attitude, change your life!!

    I first heard of Scott Alexander in 2000. I actually met him at a sales conference of the mortgage company I was with. I read his book thru twice the first time I got my hands on it! This book is great! Scott makes you realize that you can do anything you put your mind to. I used to read the book every 6 months. I got away from that for more than a year. I recently had a need to read it again, just today. I realized that I left the rhino mentality along the road side somewhere. I found it again within the first few pages of the book! I realized my attitude was the key to success! I am ready to run with the rhinos again! Pick this book up and read in one night, as it is an easy read. But the message it conveys is beyond measurement. It is a book that you can go back to again and again. As your life changes, so do your goals. I will be reading this book every 3 months from now on.

    MY LIFE HAS CHANGED

    I read Rhinoceros Success for the first time maybe 19 years ago. My life changed. This is not a get rich quick book ITS AN ATTITUDE!! I AM A RHINOCEROS! I have read all the rhino books from Scott Alexander but the red one is the best(Rhinoceros Success). By the way I grew up in a trailer and now oversee sales in the 10's of millions per year.

    Success awaits you to hunt it down

    This book rocks! I have learned so much with such a short read. I recommend this book to any cows, and future rhinos. I play in a band and I am giving a copy of the book to each band member for Christmas. Christine O. Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada
