Great advice  Feb 29, 2008
They say it takes two weeks to create a habit. Well "Thinking and Talking Positive" is a great habit to form. You would be amazed how much better you feel when you are not wallowing around in negativity! Start the positive approach and you will feel better, have more upbeat positive friends and enjoy life! This author shows you how to do just that! Great book! I recommend it highly to get on the right track and for the quick pick me up when you start to slip back into your old habits.
Clear & simple must read for a better tomorrow!  Feb 28, 2008
Cleaning out a bookcase I came across Mr. Urban's book, one of those 'must have's' but never had taken the time to read. So I read it, and now I want to get a copy for all of my daughter's teacher's, coaches, for my daughter's themselves! It is such a powerful reminder of the power of the tongue! I especially like that in the second half Mr. Urban gives specific ways to implement positive words in the classroom, on the team, etc. I have been discouraged by the increased usage of foul language on our high school campus, but he even has a suggestion of what worked at a high school when all the adults were onboard with the same question when hearing a profanity: "In this school, we don't talk like that." and then walk away. It sounds so simplistic, but like Jesus' Biblical lessons, the true lessons to make life more beautiful aren't difficult. I highly recommend this book... let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me...
Fantastic!  Feb 23, 2008
Hal Urban is one of the most inspiring and down to earth writers on self improvement. A must read, I am so glad I did.
Positive Words  Dec 27, 2007
This is a great CD... very helpful and informative and easy to listen to. I recommend it, especially for parents who want to learn how to speak to their children without condemnation or criticism.
Positivity Never Hurt  Jul 3, 2007
Hal Urban's follow up to Life's Greatest Lessons is a powerful, yet simple book that takes all of the complex, academic jargon out of his subject, and offers readers a chance to create a new paradigm, by doing something as simple as changing their speech.
Urban's book is chock full of feel good messages and warm fuzzies. No doubt this will turn off some of the more sophisticated and complicated readers; however, positivity is good for you, a little positivity never hurt.
His book has five parts, ending with a summary and a conclusion. The most enjoyable chapter in the whole book, in my opinion, is chapter ten: Funny Words Make Us Laugh, from part two. I actually enjoyed reading the book so much, I read it twice. I gave it four stars, though, because Urban's style can come across, at times, as being a little simplistic.
