10% Gold and 90% Infomercials
By A. Bengzon "goldenarm" - March 27, 2007
If you can skip past the hundreds of advertisements for the self-help products being peddled by Joe's friends and colleagues, there is actually some very useful stuff in here. But the presentation of the material is very disjointed. This is really just a collection of infomercials. Not bad but there are many better books out there that are actually written by one person and flow coherently.
This book delivers what it promises
By Phil - April 5, 2006
This book features numerous vignettes grouped into several themes:
* You: Congratulations on Your Life * Internal Capabilities: Understanding Your Life's Potential * External Connections: Caring for Others in Your Life * Troubleshooting: Taking Care of Yourself * Optimum Performance: Getting the Best Out of Your Life * Specifications: What You Need to Know About Others * Proper Usage: Defining Your Life's Purpose * Assembly Required: Creating Your Future

How to write a best-seller: the missing instruction manual

It's hard to resist the notion that Vitale conceived his latest best-seller by applying the following formula: Take the marketing hook of a book that already published to wild success (You: The Owner's Manual), add some of the pointed religiosity of two other recent bestsellers (Your Best Life Now and The Purpose-Driven Life), throw in some generic cosmic blather (inspired, perhaps, by Sylvia Browne or Marianne Williamson) and VOILA!--another perfect entry in the burgeoning self-help sub-category of "holistic/successful/spiritually enriched living."
This approach is nothing new for Vitale, a master of so-called "stealth" or "viral" marketing who unashamedly admits to being president of a company called Hypnotic Marketing, Inc. His previous best-seller, The Attraction Factor (which owns the distinction of once having knocked a Harry Potter book out of Amazon's No. 1 slot) echoed several other books and/or programs that involved such concepts as "laws of attraction" or "rules... read more
