This is a harder book to review than some. It’s actually a series of exercises that are supposed to help you live a better, or happier life. In a time period for a review, in which you need to turn around the book, it’s a little harder with something like this. You need to take the exercise and try them out for a few days, weeks, or months, and see if they work. They seemed to be fairly good advice though. Sometimes, however, it gave me the impression of listening to Dr. Phil (How’s that Working for you). One example, is to think of the biggest issue in your life. Now, take 5 seconds and think about how to solve it. That will usually give you the answer you need. I think that taken as a whole, following this advice could help you reflect more on things. Perhaps that’s the purpose, to take time and think over things.

There is actually very little text in the book. I read it in about an hours time. It’s mostly one or two sentences, some photos, and lots of white space. But as I mentioned, the purpose is to use the 31 ideas and spread them out over time. Concentrate on one area at a time, and see how that works. I’d recommend it, if you need a way to get in touch with parts of yourself. But then only if you have time to perform the exercises as needed.

    I read this one too. I haven’t reviewed it yet but it was definitely different than the average book.
