AMAZING AND AWESOME READ!!!!!!   This book is a GREAT read! It is compelling to the place of life altering decision and solution. It made me take a look at myself and into my own personal choices and thought patterns to evaluate if they were healthy solutions for me. I found in my read of this awesome material that I was challenged in areas and had some very serious questions that I never uttered until now. This book has lead me to healthy, successful solutions and a grasp on what is important. Thank you Mr. Alexander for such an inspiring truth that I believe everyone will be able to relate and apply some of the principles enclosed to a better, successful, healthier lifestyle. I am grateful for the information that was shared because of it I am able to have great success in my life and in all that concerns me. Throughout my time reading this book, I would have to pause to reflect on the elements that were shared by the author. It took me into self reflection through the sharing of his own personal experiences and those with which he is familiar. I apply the wisdom shared in this book daily so I can continue in seeing the fruit of it. After all, it's my decisions and the difference that they make in my life shows in my day to day living. Thank you for this phenomenal personal journey.

A riveting discussion with the gloves off..... After reading this book, I was deeply enthralled by Mr. Alexander's candid opinions in each of the topics explored. Exposing the teachings and lessons from his mother as the foundational trigger to his belief system, the author  opened the wounds of truth and it's relational purpose to self behaviors. With a vivid canvas of experiences and  events throughout much of his life, he captures the essence of debatable decisions in pondering life choices.

It was an indeed pleasure in reading this material enclosed in The Difference Between Yesterday And Today.  Based on the various life scenarios detailed in Mr. Alexander's book, I was able to see how one decision can affect your life.  The book was concise, clear and easy to follow and understand.  I appreciate the unique way you listed the Table Of Contents as Discussional Tops in your book.  Great job from breaking out of the usual mold of book writing and exploring the true essence of being an artist!  Several times I had to put the book down because it made me think of my own decisions and where do I want to go in life. Thank you for daring to be different or should I say expressing your own individuality through writing.  I noticed the different book covers of the book.  I personally like the cover with your picture on it.  It looks as if you are inviting the reader into your world., through the windows of your soul.  It would make me stop and take notice of your book and see what is that difference!  The book is thought provoking and a great read!  I highly recommend this book to other readers.  Thank you Mr. Alexander for being candid.  I especially liked when you would say that it is just your opinion and for the readers to investigate what you said and if they find it to be true for them, then stand on it, if not, then don't.   And my ultimate favorite was at the end of the "discussions" , "and that is the difference between yesterday and today."

My first glance at the cover was off-putting. I thought to myself how vain and narcissistic a person must be to put his own picture on the front of his own book looking over his sunglasses as if i  trying to cajole women with this look. As this author pontificates his point over and over again to readers some of which coincides with my own personal views. It could be viewed as a person with something to prove.  It is apparent that he is reaching a certain crowd. Many authors make the mistake of putting their picture on the front cover.  Unless you are well known in the media, bookstore buyers will NOT accept your book which pictures you on the front cover. One tip is to get a photographer that specializes in head shots and not just in portraits.  It is distinctly clear that the cover portrait was a portrait and not a head shot.  The background is distorted which limit your credibility as a serious author in comparison to one that is just trying to make a buck.   I didn't quite gather what was the determination of discussional topics in the book.  I read the excerpt that was provided by B&N and cogitate on the cover versus the body of the book, my notion is that they do not  jibe. I ordered the book today so I can read the remainder of the book.  The excerpt of the book was a little wordy and repeats itself but writer made some substantial points. Good luck.

I applaud the author in this book.  It is very difficult to speak about life's challenges and journey.  These realistic scenarios are difficult enough to comprehend when you or someone you love is faced with these obstacles, let alone write about them later.  I think the writer has done a phenomenal job at articulating the life lessons that are presented in this book.  I found that I have read this book numerous times and each time I find myself going over my own life decisions and things that has presented itself and see have I made decisions that hurt or help me.  I look at the principles that are within and see where I can apply them to my everyday life.  The only challenge I see is when a conditioned and somewhat fractured mind attempts to rationalize what I know is not healthy for me and continue to fight the truth revealed.  Thank you for the honesty and the opinions/philosophies demonstrated in this book.  It has helped me to realize the importance of making healthy decisions not based on my current state of mind but on principles that can be applied throughout my life wherever life's journey takes me.  I support this author and this incredible read.  I appreciate the author in being the one man that chose to write about life's lessons that we all face at one point or another in our lives.  Thank you for being transparent and sharing your own experiences in hopes to help those of us that are still trying to figure this journey out!

This book is one man's opinion about life and the impact of decisions. The author has a unique style of writing that my be a bit challenging for some. However, if you are searching for answers this book may help you think through those difficult questions everyone must ask themselves at some point in life.

This book was a pretty darn good read!!!! The author used some big words that really make the reader think; however if you continue to read the paragraph in question you could easily understand exactly what’s being shared. The book is very unique and very well put together. I enjoyed reading it and believe that it will help people who are trying to better themselves. In fact, I will personally being using it as a reference point in my life. I’m looking forward to more sharing from Mr. Alexander.

The Difference Between Yesterday and Today has been such an inspiring book that my whole life has been changed due to it. I absolutely love the read. From an avid reader to a spectacular writer - your word usage compelled and challenged me to work towards and obtain a more extensive vocabulary. Thank you for provoking me to grow in that area. The lessons that are shared in this book are so purposeful and easy to apply if one so desires truth. I had no trouble with the read, it provoked me to grow in areas that I had yet to recognize were lacking. Thank you so much Mr. Alexander for such an amazing, illuminating, edifying book. This book, in my opinion, is a required read for all those who are looking for answers to their questions of life. I know it was for me! This is the absolute BEST book I have ever read and encourage all that read it to open their minds and allow the words that were formulated lead you in a place of peace, solution and success. I would like to see more books challenge the reader to grow as yours did Mr. Alexander. Thank you again for impacting my life in such a positive way. I will always refer to what I read in this book. -Dawn A
