The points in this book are presented in rapid-fire fashion: Here are the behaviors indicative of a particular self-defeating behavior, and here are the actions you can take to change them. If only it were so simple, I probably wouldn't need to read this in the first place. If you're okay with 64 pages of a To-Do list to a better you, then you'll probably like this book. I would have preferred more discussion of each topic to truly cement the ideas instead of having them wash over me in short, bulleted paragraphs. In the end, I just didn't get a whole lot out of this read.

This is the book to wake you up. Sometimes we need to be shaken up. Lot's of good reasoning went into this book. Have I applied what I've read however? Not sure. Maybe it should be broken up into exercises to move through, before handling all that is involved. I tend to rapidly forget quickly, what I have read. So I need to re-read this book again and again. Not the author's fault!

At certain points the author got in the habbit of "just stop doing X" which doesn't really help the people who would be selecting this book. However, the overwhelming majority of the book has examples, and is quite well written. Definitely something I would recommend.
