Ask More, Get More: How to Earn More, Save More, and Live More...Just by ASKING by Michael Alden

A pragmatic and simple self-help guide written by a true rags-to-riches everyman for everyone looking to improve their life

I overcame crime, drugs, and poverty to make millions of dollars in a short period of time. I'm an average guy who learned how to "ask more" to "get more" out of life. The strategies and techniques I outline in this book can help you get just about anything--a better job, a new house, or a great vacation--faster and more consistently if you're willing to follow my advice.

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 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.

I picked this book up while at B&N, I liked it so much that I gave to my friend.  Reading again digitally.  This book has already changed my life.  I have asked for things I would never have before reading Ask More.

I've read a lot of personal improvement books and most of them lack authenticity and candor.  Mr. Alden's book is a wonderfully practical book that anyone can benefit from.  I have recommended to all my friends and family

Michael Sciucco has hit a home run here!! Friends and family have read this book and a common comment has been," true to life experiences and yes we have all been there". Great to have a game plan with concrete ideas and techniques for success. This is a Real Life book keep it near !

WOW! This book is an absolute must read! The author of ‘Ask More, Get More’ is the real deal. This isn’t just a compilation of some craftily articulated motivational verbiage; Michael Sciucco really did grow up in poverty and is a true ‘rags to richest’ story. I have read this book four times myself and I purchase it as gifts for friends, family members and those who need a push in the right direction! Were millions are throwing in the towel and giving up, in spite all his setbacks, challenges, adversities and obstacles, Sciucco is a master at achieving success.
