I have previously written about how I enjoy “The Skinny” series of books, in particular their title on Willpower. It’s a delightful format, that is very easy & quick to read. It goes straight to the point, which is important if you are very busy and don’t have time to read 500 pages of filler content. In any event, I was able to get my hands on a pre-released copy of The Skinny on Success: Why Not You?
I have to say that I have read many books on success, and never have I read such a book where the information was displayed so clearly. What I mean is that the underlying lessons to get out of the book are crystal clear. You will not read this book and feel confused or feel like a piece of the puzzle towards success is missing. After reading this book, you will completely understand what it takes to succeed.
As in other books in The Skinny series, you are given a real world example in the form of stick figures from which you can relate to more appropriately. There are also a lot of examples taken from other books on success and from the biography of many successful people, and these examples are flawlessly woven into the stick figure story. Although I knew many of these examples, I came across many that I did not and I found those to be very enlightening.
The book also ends with its top ten list of lessons that are mandatory to follow if you even want a chance at being successful. That list was very well done and thought it encompassed everything that was mentioned in the rest of the book’s story. It was a well done summary, and definitely something that we can glance at quickly every now and then to remind ourselves of these lessons.
The book also brings up some very interesting theories, some of which I had not thought about much. Such things as the importance of talent when it comes to success comes to mind as a very insightful part of the book. Also, I enjoyed how they explained how habits and taking action is reinforced chemically at the nerve level…this was something that was new to me but I was able to fully understand it well.
I wish I could go into more details about the book, but since it’s such a quick read, I don’t want to ruin it for anyone that wants to read it! Do yourself a favor and get a copy of this book. The main theme of this book is that anyone can succeed, and they tell you what you need to do to succeed. If this is a topic that you feel inclined to learn about, this book can give you all the info that you would normally get in other books which would take you 10 times longer to read!
