After appreciating the author's article with the same time that appeared in Forbes magazine, I was looking forward to her book with high expectations. They were met. As good as that article is, this book takes it to a much deeper level with fuller examples and explanations, but maintains the reader's interests throughout. I consider this book exceptional. The analogy that I will use is that it is the opposite of most movies that are based on books. In movies, things are often removed to fit time. In this case, the Forbes article is expounded upon to include explanations and examples of real-life situations that can be applied whether the reader is looking for ways to improve their personal life, their professional life, their financial situation, ways to take care of their health, relationships- I, suppose, just about any part of life. There is very little jargon, no fluff, and I felt that Ms. Morin truly cares about the reader, rather than caring more for self-promotion of her expertise. She is expert. She is just as human as the reader. Both the situations and the recommendations are "real." I was left with no thought whatsoever that the recommendations are "good theories that might work in an ideal setting, but not in real life". I have read or listened to over 100 books that deal with personal improvement of some kind. Most are specific to one or two aspects of life. I would rank "13 Things..." with the very best of them for what I look for in in a book.
