WHAT IF? Sep 26, 2007
This is an interesting book that is worth a look. It's broken up into short, fast-moving chapters of one thought or idea. It just has a fun, uplifting quality to it.
It's kind of like horse sense on a different level. And lots of great quotes like, "If you think money can't buy happiness you don't know where to shop." This book stretches the mind a bit.
Awesome book Aug 2, 2007
I absolutely love this book. I got it about 15 years ago when it first came out. It's a book that talks about personal growth, and about improving yourself mentally and spiritually. It teaches you to overcome obstacles, gives you inner peace of mind, and tries to instill a positive attitude for living life. It's all over the map - it talks about all sorts of stuff in a fun way without being too "serious" about itself. There are tons of uplifting and insightful quotes throughout the book, and the chapters are highly educational, inspirational, and eye openers. They are written in a non-lecture way with relative short easy to read chapters.
Highly recommended if you are the type that desires constant self improvement, are willing to try new things, and want to have a positive outlook on life. It's also quite a philosophical and spiritual book (without advocating any particular religion). The world would be better off if people followed the book's advice. The book is non-judgmental so use the parts that help you, and you don't have to use the parts that don't.
I just "found" the book again, and I am re-reading some of the chapters. Great stuff. I am reminded of how good it was.
You can see if you like the book by checking out the free online version. Just do a search for the author's name on a search engine.

Want to make a change in your life and you don't know quite how ? Buy this book and read it, chapter after chapter, leaving about a week between each to ponder and let it sink in. It'll do you and the rest of the world a lot of good.
Great book Jan 10, 2007
I first read this book in high school. Since then I've read the book 2 or 3 times and have learned something new each time I read it. It puts forth a great philosophy on life that has had a huge impact on my life. One note to readers is that the book takes a long time to set everything up. I'd advise anyone reading it to stay patient for the first 100 pages. It'll be worth it in the end.
Life 101: Everything We Wish We Had Learned About Life in School --But Didn't Sep 12, 2005
This is an easy to read book full of fun quotes and profound wisdom. It tells us a lot about ourselves and guides us in dealing with the world and others. I have read it twice and have enjoyed the audio tapes when on a trip. It's a real upper.
