I don't have an overall rating yet, as I'm only about 30% through the book, so I'll reserve judgement.
So far it seems a bit repetitive, and I agree with some others that the author is talking down to the reader.

The best thing about this book is that it helped me a lot with my daily life problems. I became stronger as a human being. The worst thing about this book is that it's similar to other self-help books. Though that's completely my opinion.
Life is just a parenthesis in the vastness of infinity.

I didn't care for the author's arrogant attitude. Some of his facts and ideas were good. I read the official review for the book, and I agree with the reviewer that this might be a good book for younger readers. It will help them not to make some of the mistakes the author did. It would allow them to start on a confident and well-informed path.
I'm working my way through this one. I often have trouble reading books like this because of the sometimes arrogant or even blaming tone or attitude. I always find it overshadows any good points or arguments that have been made. I like how you said it might help younger readers avoid the same mistakes, but I wonder if any readers would immediately be off-put by the attitude and dismiss the entire work.

The title of this book is awesome! But seriously, I think this book is very good. I work everyday with troubled youth who need good books like this. There are self help book and there are books that actually teach you to help yourself. That may have sounded confusing, but just trust me that this book will really allow you to help yourself unlike some other self help books out there. Read this book!

I just finished reviewing it. I'd say it's okay for newbies but is repetitive and full of cliches. I wouldn't recommend it to someone who has done any self-improvement work since it is a collection of things found elsewhere.

Wel, just like the saying goes, "When you think the world has turned its back on you, look closely, you just might have turned your back on the world. Now it@s important to know and understand that life is not as difficult as we often percieve it to be, so, just keep making your genuine, conscious efforts, believing in yourself and trusting GOD completely, and watch things changing for you, and life more meaningful. Cheers!
