I have read another book by Larry Winget so I was sort of prepared for this one. But, in this book you are given actual assignments to do. Don't skip them! Thought provoking, at times funny, and definitely pointed, this book will give you cause to look at yourself in a new way. I would recommend this book to anyone serious about moving forward in a new direction.

Straight forward and honest, nothing new that hasn't been said before about all issues important to us all. This book helps you get past the excuses to improving your life in all aspects.
