Reviews - What do customers think about Life Strategies: Doing What Works, Doing What Matters?
Eh Mar 5, 2008
Despite being embarrassed to buy this book (I felt like a loser handing it to the cashier), I bought it anyway because I like Dr. Phil's show--he's entertaining. However, I didn't find this book nearly as helpful as Wayne Dyer, The Secret or Eckart Tolle. I didn't take anything away from it, and I wish I had bought something else instead of this book. Sorry Dr. Phil! I still love your show and that brilliant masterpiece, Dr. Phil House.
Makes you think Jan 6, 2008
Every person's experience in a reading a book is their own, and therefore, unique. I took away a sense of this book "making me think" and asking myself hard questions about life. I felt the exercises were way too long, but I got a much needed dose of mental focus from reading it.
Dr. Phil offers so good, sound, ideas that will cause you to look at how you are managing your life and how you can do it in a better way. I recommend that you read this book.
This is Usless Dec 22, 2007
I have actually been through a long period of spiritual chaos. I have owned this book in the past. I also owned many other books that are of this kind. This book is actually useless. The best thing to do in times of turmoil is to keep things SIMPLY. That is the best solution. Think in a positive way but not to the extreme end that is advocated in all these self improvement books which are actually self DESTRUCTION books. For those who question my opinion, I have been severely depressed for over 6 years. I stop being depressed back in 2003. I am currently a psychology major. REAL psychology books are VERY different from these SHAM books. I hope my review have helped someone. If you have books like this, you should throw them away.
Solid Tools for Life Success Sep 18, 2007
As a fairly new this site reviewer, I picked a few of my favorite "older" books that I wanted to weigh in on because they have stood the test of time. Life Strategies is one of these.
This book by Phil McGraw captures and keeps your attention from the first page of the introduction (where he tells the story of how he met Oprah and took the first steps from being a litigation consultant to the country's life coach). He shares personal experiences of what some would call "light bulb moments" or times he "got it". He distills the life lessons he's learned into a clear action plan for a better life. Get out a pencil and actually do the exercises to best create real change.
Highly recommended to all who want more out of life.
