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.Read more ›
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.
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!
The accompanying book and the questions within this workbook are not intimidating or overly focused on self-phsycho-analysis, but the user has to be willing and diligent in their efforts to complete the work requested. If successful in these efforts, it does provide a worthwhile look at oneself and one's life.

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. Read morePublished on Oct. 15 2000
Not a typical "self-help" book, but a life prep course unfortunately not offered in schools. Read it, do it and learn to live it. Read morePublished on Sept. 24 2000 by J. Kristen
