Bursting with big ideas, this latest resource from author and veteran businessman Tracy will guide persistent self-starters towards success, providing comprehensive attention to all aspects of business and broad applicability. Each chapter starts with an inspiring quote and ends with exercises, and Tracy's points are illustrated with clear-cut examples, research and true stories. Though the first few chapters are filled with new age pseudo-psychology which could either inspire or tire readers (""Your thoughts radiate out from you like energy waves and attract back into your life people and circumstances in harmony with those dominant thoughts""), the text soon hones in on specific business strategies and mindsets for success, using a fast-paced, straightforward writing style that highlights the practical: ""When you discipline yourself to always concentrate on the most valuable use of your time, every minute of every day, you will accomplish more in a few months and years than the average person accomplices in a lifetime."" Tracy quotes liberally from bestsellers in the self-help business genre, making this volume a nice overview of essential reading for entrepreneurs.
