In this age and time that the world is evolving, opportunities are open to everyone. However, only a few people can capitalize on these opportunities; among them are the prominent entrepreneurs who have become our role models today. Have you ever wondered how this class of mogul went about their accomplishments?

In Plain Sight: Clearer Than Water is a masterpiece written by Alfred Adjokatcher. He enriches the mind with ideas to greatness and how to surmount every possible fear one could face within their path to greatness. The book comprises eight chapters and each chapter gives detailed strategies on how to become productive and thrive to becoming relevant to ourselves and the society at large. The author took a glide on his early work life; he explained how he served at different restaurants and later worked in a real estate company because he was aiming for a good-paying job. This is all thanks to the mentality he had while growing up back in Accra.

He talks about entrepreneurship and the sacrifices attached to this purpose. Afterward, he explains how to find solutions to human problems through time and curiosity. He emphasizes productivity and engaging in worthwhile things that would keep a person relevant in various sectors. He claims that learning is not just within the four walls of the school or about racking up degrees, but by "self-productivity" through a relentless effort to succeed, not being afraid to try new things, and staying out of competitions. Subsequently, the author talks about the art of gratitude through the "three Rs" and the importance of time management. Find out more of these basic steps to success by reading this inspiring book!

The book contains many positive aspects. It serves as a "manual to self-discovery" and opens our minds to things that seem difficult to achieve. The author does this by assuring the readers of being whatever they choose to be so long as they are willing to sacrifice all that is necessary to achieve it. This book is also very straightforward as the author illustrates in simple and layman terms for a comprehensive read. Also, I found this book to be more of a self-reflective book, where one could draw strength from. Moreover, the book was exceptionally well edited as I couldn't find any errors in it.

As for the negative aspect, it's really hard to figure this out because the book provides answers to essential questions about life. However, I feel the author laid too much emphasis on opportunities in America alone. This could raise unhealthy arguments.

I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. I did not give this book a lower rating because it was enjoyable and was properly edited. I recommend this book to those that love reading motivational books.

I agree with your point that there are opportunties available outside of America also. Apart from that, this sounds like a very helpful and encouraging book.

Thank you for your detailed review.

It sounds like an interesting self-help book to achieve greatness through sacrifice. Unfortunately, it is America-centric. Good job with the review. Thank you.

I can agree that learning is not just inside of schools. I feel as though learning can be done anywhere and that anything can be a lesson. Nicely done review!

I believe not every self-help book is that easy to follow. Though this one seems to stand out somehow. Thankyou for such a nice review.
