This book is a good read especially when you need something to lift your spirits up when you are down. I found some examples as "too good to be true" but it does help convey/illustrate the message he is delivering. What I like about this book is that it offers you affirmations that you can repeat to yourself to boost your morale and faith in yourself. I don't think this is the type of book that you read in one sitting. I think it works well if you try to read one chapter at a time and contemplate the message over a period of days.
