  • A little disappointing

    By 1836292619374
    I heard this author on a podcast and immediately bought the book. I hate to say it, but for me he was much more profound and engaging on the podcast. This was a little shallow and marketing-y for me, and I don’t feel like I learned much. This book obviously means a lot to many people and has had an impact on their lives, but as a priority and goal driven person by nature I felt like I knew a lot of this already.

    it is really helpful if you want to succeed in life. I always tried multitasking and juggling everything, but now, i do my right one thing first and be accountable for it. Small results and i know the end will be worth it
  • Inspiring!

    By BrightStar77
    This is hands-down the best personal development book I have ever read (and I have read A LOT of personal development books)!! I agree that the iBooks version is a little pricey, but it was well worth every penny.
  • AMAZING book to inspire you to reach your potential!

    I purchased this book months ago, but I have read it multiple times. Each time I have read the book, I have gained an improved focus and a newfound wisdom. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has met their basic needs [according to Abraham Maslow] and is motivated to reach their potential at the level of "self-actualization." Happy reading!
  • Price?

    By Bjacaruso
    It's $14 on the Kindle app...
  • Why is this so expensive?

    By Alosalsa78
    I don't understand why this ebook costs as much as it does. The paper book version is under $15 and the ebook for Kindle on Amazon costs over $10 less . Is there a typo? Should the price actually be $13.99 instead of $23.99?
  • The ONE a BIG thing

    By It'sAWrap
    Just finished the book after dabbling and slowly digesting the chapters. Opened my eyes to so many mistakes I have been making the past couple DECADES. It's simple, but powerful and makes sense.
