By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
I strongly urge you to get, use, and refer often to this workbook! The exercises in Life Strategies are the greatest strength of that book. The exercises in this workbook are much more numerous and more beneficial than the sum of the ones in Life Strategies.
Life Strategies is one of the most valuable books on how to accomplish more in your life that has ever been written. This workbook will more than triple the benefit you will get from reading Life Strategies by focusing you on doing many more exercises to identify your limiting beliefs, and organizing action for self-improvement. As much as I like these two books, I find them deficient in the area of helping you identify your values and life's mission. Values and mission do precede strategy. For that reason, I suggest that you start with Hyman Smith's, What Matters Most, then read Life Strategies, and follow those two books with this workbook. The three build on each other nicely, as though they were written to be combined although I believe that only the latter two were coordinated in this way.
Before telling you more about the workbook, let me note that none of these books is appropriate for helping those with severe psychological issues. You should get professional help. Some of this material might simply make you feel worse than you can handle, before building you toward a set of solutions.
The big complaint that many people have about Life Strategies was that it had too much material in it about Oprah. Well, you'll be glad to know that the workbook is virtually an Oprah-free zone.
Here is how the workbook is organized:
Part I focuses on how you can find out and face the truth about yourself, and parallels the material in chapter one of Life Strategies.

5.0 out of 5 stars out of the darkness May 8 2000
By A Customer
I guess I picked up this book as a last resort. I was feeling hopeless--that I could never overcome the darkness and fears of the past, that I was trapped in confusion as to why my life was the way it was, and feeling like there was no escape--no way out. I opened this book and the very first page I saw began to give me hope. I read more and more and am now committing portions of this book to memory. What he says makes sense--its real and honest and though it puts the responsibility for the problems of your life on you--it isn't accusing, it is, in actuality, putting your life back into your own hands--which is where you want it and feel it is not---right?
Great book, the beginning of a new journey and new understanding. The book addresses all sorts of problems for those of us who have been "victims" to those of us who are overachievers and overworked, to those who are the opposite. I recommend this book--even for teenagers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful Workbook to gain specific insights Feb. 1 2001
By A Customer
This workbook for LIFE STRATEGIES by Phil McGraw was also very helpful! Life Strategies was a Great Book and this helped me a get some deeper connections about what he was saying and how it applied to me! It had some good results that translated into more effectiveness for me. It also help me get some insight on how to get out of some unproductive habits I had. I also feel like I can take on more challenges than I could before. I really like his no nonsense approach to things.
Other books I love and highly recommend are:
* "Habits of Highly Effective People" by Covey
* "Working On Yourself Doesn't Work" by Ariel & Shya Kane
I especially loved "Working On Yourself Doesn't Work" by the Kanes. It is a great book, simple yet with gems of insight. These are all great books I recommend to readers seeking solid, practical yet profound advice on how to be happier, more effective, and more fulfilled in life!

5.0 out of 5 stars You Only Thought You Had It Together Feb. 17 2001
Before reading this book, I stumbled upon Dr. Phil's "Getting Real About Fat" three-part series on Oprah. After five minutes of part one, I was hooked. Dr. Phil's fresh & candid approach to getting your life straight is no less than life-changing. If you can get past your own theory of having a pretty good handle on life and opening your mind a little, I guarantee you'll realize what a fantastic tool this book really is. The best thing about this book is the fact that you can apply McGraw's Laws to anything in your life you'd like to improve upon or change. What's more, adapting these laws to your life and using them correctly on a day-to-day basis will save you from future failure. This is the first self-help book I've ever been intrigued to read. I can say without hesitation that it's the only one I'll ever need.

1.0 out of 5 stars Spend your life reading about it Oct. 15 2000
The principle is simple: I know many odd people enjoy reading life planning books to gain the illusion that they can modify their fate or their existence so I tried this one. As expected I was extraordinarily disappointed. Doctor Phil confirms Marx's obsession with the act, the deed and not the word. This pseudo medical man blabbles on about Life strategies and other foul clichés in an overall boring and uninspirational manner. Words, words, words and more words endlessly going round in circles... Any real thought is disregarded and replaced by painful anti-philosophical rubbish arguments. If you want a better life know thyself as said a wise Greek man: read Sartre.
