Product Description

From Amazon

If there's anyone qualified to write a self-help book on success, it's Jack Canfield, who's worked his way from scraping by as a teacher to holding a Guinness world record for having seven books simultaneously on The New York Times® Best Sellers list.

As a coauthor of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® series, he's sold more than 80 million books and now lives "in a beautiful California estate" with his days of dining on spaghetti and tomato paste long behind him. "All you have to do is decide what it is you want, believe you deserve it, and practice the principles in this book," he says, and success is yours.

His advice is straightforward (examples: "reject rejection" and "surround yourself with successful people"), but rather derivative, with quotes from the likes of JFK, Colin Powell, Aldous Huxley, and fellow motivation author Napoleon Hill. Canfield's definition of success is primarily monetary, and he includes plenty of anecdotes depicting average folks who saved themselves from the brink of bankruptcy after following his principles. He could tone down the braggadocio; readers don't need to know that he's stayed in resorts in Hawaii, Italy, Australia, and Morocco. Despite those gripes, his cheerleader-caliber enthusiasm should benefit anyone looking to improve their lot in life. --Erica Jorgensen

From Publishers Weekly

When it comes to success, Canfield knows of what he speaks: he is co-creator, with Mark Victor Hansen, of the seemingly endless Chicken Soup for the Soul series. He presents 64 success principles that he claims "always work"—and draws on his own experience and that of others to illustrate them. Sixty-four principles may seem like a lot, but each receives a concise, easy-to-digest chapter that challenges readers to risk creating their lives exactly as they want them. Many of the principles are familiar—e.g., "Take 100% Responsibility for Your Life"—but Canfield has a nifty way of summarizing them ("Reject rejection"), and some are inventive: "Become an Inverse Paranoid" means see the world as out to help you instead of out to get you. He also offers specific techniques, such as positive-thinking exercises and visualizations. A section on transformation provides even more on how to overcome self-defeating beliefs, fears and habits. Further sections offer principles on building good teams and better relationships at the office. Canfield acknowledges his predecessors in the success advice field, such as Napoleon Hill, and is also clear that while he gives information, motivation, and inspiration, readers must contribute their own hard work. Canfield's energy and enthusiasm bounce off the page; many will flock to this inspiring (and very rich) teacher. And those starting off in business or in need of a refresher course may consider this title required reading.

From Booklist

Expect considerable press hype over this book, considering Canfield is coauthor of the Chicken Soup series, volumes of which appear on best-seller lists immediately upon release. Canfield has 64 principles of successful living that he wants all of us to pay attention to because to do so will result in a higher level of productivity in the personal, professional, and financial arenas. He begins with a fundamental admonition: everyone should "give up blaming and complaining." True, we all know people who display an irritating sense of entitlement, and those are the people who will best learn from this book--which, as it turns out, is definitely compelling. Canfield does an excellent job of what this kind of self-help guide is charged with doing: first, indicating what kind of thinking people need to do to understand how they would like their lives to play out, and second, imparting the courage to take action. There are some obvious suggestions here, but others will strike readers as original and refreshing. Brad Hooper

From AudioFile

Every important principle of effective living is summarized with class and intelligence in this near-perfect audio lesson by one of our most prolific personal development writers. The lessons hit home immediately and beg to be heard again and again: We are responsible for our reactions and thoughts, our visualizations of the future, and our day-to-day actions. We are the ones who will be held accountable if we don't move toward our dreams, speak the truth, and deal with problems when they need to be dealt with. This is a curiously optimistic essay with ideas that are impossible to refute or dismiss. A humanely erudite lesson for people at any level of disrepair or unhappiness.
