CCCCC (A case could be made that I would only review the best of the best because if while reading a book it does not hold my interest, I would not finish it and therefore would not review it.)
Format: Inspirational Novel with a great message; enjoyable and educational
Reason For Reading THIS book: I am familiar with the Un-Comfort Zone articles and this was a natural read when I learned about the book.
Number Of Times I Have Read This Book: Once. It is a very easy to read book. Less than 200 pages but full of very valuable information in regards to creating a positive attitude and maintaining a positive and productive attitude.
Brief Summary of Content: One small positive thought in the morning can change your entire day. I don't know who initially said that but it is one of the most valid quotes I have ever heard. It can also be said that one small positive thought in the evening, just before turning in for the night, can change the way you sleep and ultimately the way you awake in the morning. If you were to read just one article from this book every morning it would be impossible think it would not positively affect your attitude every day. Or if you were to read just one article every evening before you turn in for the night it would be impossible to think that you would not sleep better and awake in the morning to a more positive attitude. If these two statements are true, and I believe they are, just think how your attitude could be affected if you read just one article in the evening before you turn in and then again when you awake in the morning. NOTHING WOULD OR COULD STOP YOU!
What I particularly like about this book is the format. Short very easy to read articles that can be read separately from one another meaning you don't have to read one to move on to the next. Or you can read one in the middle of the book and then at the end of the book and miss out on nothing. They are all great articles. Most of the articles are based on a story. The story may have been an experience by the author or a story from another source. But then, the story is amplified to demonstrate just how it can and should affect you and your attitude and/or motivation. It is a great book and it all starts with the very first story on how a women in her nineties was challenged by a friend and lawyer and the challenge was attributed to her living to a record 122 years. This alone ought to stimulate your interest in reading this book.
Who Should Read the Book? EVERYONE! Period!
Final Test: Would I read the book again? ABSOLUTELY AND I AM! Would I give it as a gift? ABSOLUTELY!
