"Lacking in substance, superficial insights."
I empathise with the author and really would like to be more generous, but this book just wasn't worth the running time. The book spends a great deal of time making the point that "some people are afraid of failure and sabotage themselves to avoid risk". Beyond that, the book offers little in the way of specific, actionable advice.
"Very difficult to get in to"
I found this book incredibly hard to get into. It uses lots of acronyms and short forms of things that I found really hard to follow.
I've read a lot of self-help books over the years, but this one is different in the fact that Kelsey actually deals with the subject from a user perspective. He takes you through all the litterature - including the more scientific stuff and relates it to a normal persons difficulties of obtaining goals.
Easy read, great stuff, lots and lots of good references to further study if you so desire.
