Book Reviews


A very inspiring read5 star

I was given the optional task of reading this at work and I was not disappointed. While there were aspects of positivity that I knew about, there were other parts that I did not realize were factors. Combine that with an outside source telling you how things are instead of it swirling around in your own head and you have a truly inspiring read. Definitely a fan!55

Highly recommend for ANYBODY!5 star

I read this book during the COVID-19 outbreak as a way to get back into reading books, something I had done a ton of during my time in college. This book was a GREAT start to that! The 10 rules are definitely ones I can start applying to my life right now even in the midst of uncertainty about my future and where it’s headed.55

This book came recommended to me by a coach, and it definitely did not disappoint. The book will help you come to realize you often can be your own worst enemy. Absolutely love the positivity it encourages and believe that it would be an awesome book for a team or coaching staff to read.55


Life changing5 star

As I began this book I wasn’t sure what to expect. As I got about a third of the way through I started to realize how negative I have been throughout my life. This book has opened my eyes to so many things in my life that I have begun to change for the better. I have recommended this to fellow coworkers including my boss and also family members that need this encouragement to make the change they need personally and professionally.55
