The chair once occupied by Orison Swett Marden, W. Clement Stone, Napoleon Hill, and Og Mandino is where Success publisher and editorial director Darren Hardy now sits. Darren has been a leader in the personal-development industry for sixteen years, having led two personal development-based television networks—The People’s Network (TPN), and The Success Training Network (TSTN)—producing and launching more than a thousand TV shows, live events, and products and programs with many of the world’s top experts.

Darren is a product of the principles he reveals in The Compound Effect. As an entrepreneur, Darren was earning a six-figure income by age eighteen, more than a million dollars a year by age twenty-four, and he owned a company producing $50 million a year in revenue by age twenty-seven. He has mentored thousands of entrepreneurs, advised many large corporations, and serves on the board of several companies and nonprofit organizations.

As publisher and editorial director of Success Magazine, Darren is in a unique position to interview leading experts on human performance and achievement, as well as many of today’s top CEOs, revolutionary entrepreneurs, superstar athletes, entertainers, and Olympic champions, to uncover and share the secrets behind their extraordinary success.

Each month in the pages of Success Magazine, on his blog (DarrenHardy.SUCCESS.com), on Twitter (@ DarrenHardy), on Facebook (DarrenHardyFan), and before live audiences of entrepreneurs across the country, Darren distills the best of the best information and strategies available, mixing in his own street-tested principles of success. Darren’s passion for personal development is at the core of his business and life philosophy. He is committed to helping others achieve their potential in order to live richer, more fulfilling lives.

I selected the Einstein quotation to serve as the title of this review because I became convinced long ago that people and the lives they live tend to be the result of the decisions they make. In casinos and in competitive athletics, for example, individuals can be "on a roll" or in what Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi characterizes as "flow." We can't miss, we can't lose, the force is with us. However, that same force can also produce negative, sometimes disastrous results.

Alice Schroeder selected The Snowball as a title for her biography of Warren Buffett because, when he was a boy growing up in Omaha, he observed a large ball-like shape rolling down a hill, gaining both size and speed as it moved along. He immediately recognized its implicit power. Positive compound interest remains among his core principles. For millions of others, negative compound interest (e.g. on credit card debt, "upside-down" mortgages) has created very serious problems.

For me, Darren Hardy's most important point in this book is this: All of the decisions people make (however "small" they may be) can have positive results if those decisions are guided and informed by what he calls The Compound Effect principle. Conversely, a minor cut that becomes infected and is neglected could eventually result in major surgery, perhaps even an amputation. In fact, Hardy insists - and I agree - there are no "minor" or "small" decisions if their potential implications and consequences are ignored. These are among the subjects that Hardy addresses in his book:

o How to win--every time! The No. 1 strategy to achieve any goal and triumph over any competitor, even if they're smarter, more talented or more experienced.

The book is pretty good and provides reinforcement for the basics, like writing goals down, giving yourself deadlines, finding a way to measure success, and being consistent over time. The writing style is pretty informal and the photos provide little, if any, benefit.

One of the Best Books I Have Ever Read! The author is right that most of us know what to do, we just simply don't do it. Most of us simply go through life on auto pilot, mindlessly making choices that feel good in the moment but add up over time to complete and utter self sabotage. It will be hard to read this book and not face the truth about the price we all pay for short term gratification!

Most of us know what the compound effect can do to our investments, but few of us know that this concept can apply to every sphere of our life. Creating small but lasting changes is what Darren Hardy is explaining in this book. When apply correctly, the compound effect will change your life for the best. Good read with interesting content, great book.

Simply the best motivation book I have ever read. I have read alot of books on success and motivation.
The way Dan Hardy explains it is what seperates this book from other books in the same genre.
The attention to detail of every decision and choice we make compounds over time.
Get this book ASAP!

It is a book that covers the importance of doing the mundane, and doing it consistently. This book is greatly written and easy to get through. Check out the video to see a few of the ideas presented in The Compound Effect
