Good Book! ( )

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.

Normally I include my thoughts with a rating, but I read this book prior to joining LT. I just remember I really enjoyed it. ( )

Easy to read, logical progression through ten basic principles to make good changes in your life and inner thoughts. ( )

I like the no-nonsense approach to counseling that he and others are starting to advocate. 1. You either get it, or you don't. 2. You create your own experience. 3. People do what works. 4. You cannot change what you do not acknowledge. 5. Life rewards action. 6. There is no reality; only perception. 7. Life is managed; it is not cured. 8. We teach people how to treat us. 9. There is power in forgiveness. 10. You have to name it to claim it. ( )

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
