Book Description

June 3 2009
In his fourth book for children, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer focuses on the topic of excuses and how they can do more harm than we realize. The book demonstrates how excuses go far beyond "my dog ate my homework," and can actually become words that prevent your child from reaching his or her potential.

The book follows a boy with a seemingly impossible dream who almost lets excuses ("I'm not smart enough" . . . "It's too hard," and so on) get in his way.

He discovers, as will your child, that by following a few simple ideas and eliminating excuses . . . anything is possible!

Despite his childhood spent in orphanages and foster homes, Dr. Dyer, who has a doctorate in counseling psychotherapy, has overcome many obstacles to make his dreams come true. Today he spends much of his time showing others how to do the same. When he's not traveling the globe delivering his uplifting message, Wayne is writing from his home in Maui, Hawaii.

He is also the author of more than one hundred audio- and videotape series, including five critically acclaimed programs on public television. In 1999 Time magazine selected Dr. Chopra as one of the Top 100 Icons and Heroes of the Century, describing him as "the poet-prophet of alternative medicine."

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing July 6 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It is just okay. A bit too moralistic and simplistic. I expected the book to be better written and not that much in your face. It does offer a great message, but not a book one would want to re-read. I believe that books with positive messages should withstand multiple readings.

Excellent content, my son just wasn't as engaged in it as I would have liked. He may still be too young to appreciate it, he is 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good, Positive Book May 25 2009
By Amazon Addict - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I read this with my son and we both enjoyed it.

This book tells a story about a boy who wants to become a marine biologist. When he tells people in his life what he wants to do they tell him discouraging things until he looses that spark and gives up on his dream. The book shows how he worked though the EXCUSES and followed his dream.

Maybe it's my simple mind but I sometimes feel I get just as much out of these children's book as I do the longer verson for adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, Heartwarming, Powerful Lesson for My Kids and Yours! June 27 2009
By John - Published on
I loved this for my kids; it is for 4 -8 year olds. It explains that excuses are made by our own decision and limit what we achieve when we can really achieve what we set our minds to. It teaches, through a story of a child who has a passion for sea turtles and a marine biology career, that even when we are told by others we look up to (teachers, grandpa, parents...) that what we want is "wrong" or "too hard" or whatever, we are the only ones who decide what we can do or not. And, even better, it points out what us parents do know, which is that people all around us say this or that but really, when a person (our child...) does what they love and follow their dreams, others that care for them come around to see their point and their abilities that they were not seeing before. This book is so great to share these ideas with my children and I am hopeful that it will be a game changer, one of the things that helps my kids to really understand that they are not limited and they can have and do what they desire. Simply wonderful. And not a long book. It has a method, based on Dr. Dyers adult book "Excuses be Gone", where the kids can learn to question their excuses too, to reduce their power over them, and help them to get beyond excuses.

Also, as a parent, you have got to read Effortless Wellbeing: The Missing Ingredients for Authentic Wellness. I have been seeing people carrying this book and recommending it, and there is a great reason. It is absolutely amazing and will transform your life in general and as a parent. I can't tell you how powerful this book has been in my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Excuses July 30 2009
By Mary M. Garilis - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to share with my grandson. Of course we all know that little ones need guidance and everyone benefits from Wayne Dyer's words. After reading and discussing this book we were in his backyard running around their pool. I said I am too old to run any more when he exclaimed "Grammy, no excuses, you can do it!" So, who learned from the book and applied their learning?

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book April 10 2010
By Julie - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I just LOVE this book. I've been trying to work with my son on his rather negative, defeatist attitude and it's been tough to capture his attention. Reading this book with him has put the whole subject in a whole new light and we now regularly talk about "Is that an excuse?" and he know what I'm talking about and can rethink his reaction. It's really made a difference for him.
