The Compound Effect is one of the best reads EVER! First off, it is easy to read, and almost as if the words come to life, giving the reader the feeling that there really is someone out there who is there to make a difference and help you to make a difference! The principles in the book are profound, exciting, empowering, and even better, if you set your mind to it and actually begin to make small changes, it is LIFE CHANGING! Second, for the understanding that The Compound Effect is in effect regardless of behaviors, its either positive, or negative! We have a choice! Seemingly small and unnoticeable changes can change the course of our lives forever! This is more than a great book, it is AMAZING! Darren Hardy is personable, compassionate, and challenging in his writing style, compelling this reader to go a few extra steps! I have just finished reading this book quickly, and am immediately returning to it to implement the changes that I have identified needing improvement!

Another winner from Darren. Not just a "positive thinking" book, it is a positive "doing" book. Clear doable steps to achieve your goals in life. Highly recommended.

This was one of the first personal development books I ever read and I've been through it a couple times since. It is not theoretical or simply rah rah motivation, but actionable advice you can uses immediately to improve your health, relationships, career, business, etc. You have to read this!

It broke out of the gates for me but then gassed and nearly crawled to the finish. Original concept was quickly taken over by typical motivational filler.

I have read this SOOOOOO many times I can't tell you how many. It's absolutely one of my favorite books. The first time I read it, it really helped me to realize some key issues which were holding me back. Now, if I want a refresher or I start to veer off in the wrong direction it helps me to get back on track. Thank you Darren, for sharing your AWESOME insight into such a simple (but usually unapplied) concept.
