Part of the summer reading program while selling educational books door to door with SouthWestern. Motivational reading, still remembered years later. ( )

I'm a Yorkshireman — from the north of England — we subsist on a steady diet of tea and disappointment. This book contains good advice but as a grumpy northerner I still found it annoying. ( )

I remember almost nothing about this book. My retention isn't great, but it's certainly not nil. I'm going to blame the book. Here's what I'm reasonably certain about the content: At some point in the reading I was told to doubt my limits, to push beyond comfort, and to embrace change. I heartily endorse every one of those message. OK, stop. Perhaps I'm wrong about having retained nothing of the book; perhaps I've absorbed the book's messages to such an extent that they're now simply a part of me. Perhaps Schwartz's words have burst through their lexical protein shells and, through a kind of dark mental alchemy, become part of my very essence. That wouldn't be Big Thinking, but it would be Magic. ( )
