Book Review: The Power of Focus


This is an excellent book, is well written and is full of insightful knowledge and techniques to improve your business life, personal life and general outlook on life.This is not a book about land surveying but I think everyone will benefit from reading this book.

At times the writing and ideas may seem far-fetched, or over-the-top to you because the writers, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Les Hewitt, are extraordinarily upbeat and positive, which could be unnerving to some of you (I'm sorry, but all too often we let the negative rule our lives). However, if you only read the chapters about bad habits, Focusing Strategy #1 Your Habits Will Determine Your Future, and consistency, Focusing Strategy #8 Consistent Persistence, I think you will recognize yourself in this book and finally understand why you may not have been as successful as possible. I have used the information and techniques in this book to make a significant improvement to all aspects of my life, business and personal.

I also would recommend The Power of Focus for College Students: How to Make College the Best Investment of Your Life (Power of Focus) and The Power of Focus for Women: How to Live the Life You Really Want.

I rate this book 4 RODS out of a total possible 4 RODS.
