review 1: I don't know if I've ever come up against this problem before, but I don't know how to rate this book. I'm giving it a four, which at first made me wonder 'why? There's nothing wrong with it. It gets quite exciting, it's not too preachy, the exercises are useful.' So I wondered why I didn't feel like giving it five stars. Because, in a way, I feel like giving it three stars. I can't really account for that, either. It's a mixture between my own lack of comprehension and guilt that's leading to four stars, because I wouldn't feel right giving this book just a three.I went through the book over the course of about two weeks, maybe that's the problem. Maybe if I'd done it all in about 3 days, it would have been a more clear-cut answer.Anyway, I do recommend this book to just ... moreabout anyone. If you really want, you can cut corners & skip certain things. I personally didn't do most of the maps the way they're set out, but took inspiration from those questions & directions to still dig deep. I found out some surprising things. & I'm not used to that. So check it out sometime.
review 2: To get the most out of this book, it is necessary to put extra work into the exercises. I have read many management books, and a lot of what is here is also in other books. However, I believe that the value of a specific book depends on how receptive the reader is at the time. At this point in my life, I am more receptive to this book and willing to put the extra work into the exercises than I was even a year ago. Therefore I found it very helpful and useful in getting out of the rut that I was in. less

Some really useful (and fun) exercises in here for unsticking yourself, thinking differently, etc.
This is another gem of a book! Great for mapping out your plan to do more GREAT work!
Really rudimentary stuff with some cute "maps." Don't waste your time with it.
Stopped reading after first few pages. Not practical.
I'm a glutton for punishment.
