Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
TurboCoach, a guide to better managing your own life, is organized into 21 short chapters grouped together into three sections. The first seven chapters are designed to help the reader gain clarity about one's own life. The text seems most appropriate to the sole proprietor and independent business owner than to an employee of a larger organization.
The second section of the book, another seven chapters, explores improving one's personal productivity. The third section-yes, another seven chapters-deals with growing your business. The authors' Advanced Coaching and Mentoring Program is promoted after the body of the book-big surprise. The index is helpfully comprehensive.
I felt the book was somewhat condescending. It appears to have been written by formula; may I suggest "manufactured?" Each chapter begins with two questions, with check-off boxes, and a synopsis of the chapter's focus. A few pages of text come next, followed by a seven-question application exercise. Who ever decided that life should be packaged in sevens? Almost every chapter has the same structure. After a while, the reading became annoying. The obvious structure distracted from the content.
There is good material in the chapters and the writing style makes the advice easy to grasp. For the beginner in this field of reading and personal growth, there is good value here. The advanced reader may find this read too simplistic.
If you have never read a book by Brian Tracy, this might not be the best place to start. I'd recommend starting with Maximum Achievement, skipping some of his other, also great books, and then reading this one. It's a great book written by one of the all time great motivators.
If you have never come across this stuff before you will find this rocket fuel for you life. If you have, it is still high octane, valuable stuff, not new but valuable.
