Dr Phil is the no nonsense straight shooting guy, we have learned to love from his TV shows. In this book he is able to get that same message across in a very direct yet encouraging manner. Totally readable and something there for any teen to adult to learn from. His underlying christian spirit also comes through his writings, which is something I like. ( )

In this book, Dr. Phil focuses on how the world works, what makes people tick (including yourself), and how knowledge of these things can help you become successful. His oldest son, Jay, has reworked this book into "Life Strategies for Teens" by putting it in language teenagers will understand.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0786884592, Paperback)

Author and reader Phillip McGraw is at the forefront of a group of self-help gurus rethinking Americans' decade-plus-long celebration of victimhood. Calling himself a realist, he outlines 10 ways to take responsibility for and change your life. His reading mirrors the style of the weekend motivational seminars he conducts, designed to spark the listener into action. The lively pace crackles with such gems as, "My dad had taught me there are times in life where you just don't want to miss a good chance to shut up." While tape 1's side A bogs down during an account of Oprah Winfrey's beef-industry battles, side B dives quickly into the meat of the audiobook, featuring anecdotes from McGraw's own life and the 10 "Life Laws"--the rules by which McGraw believes the world plays. (Running time: 5 hours, 4 cassettes) --Kimberly Heinrichs
