Amazon Readers Rating: BOOK SELF HELP

Review By: Claire, Sleepydust Editor and Amazon readers

This book ‘does what it says on the tin’.

What do I mean?

If you want the ‘softly-softly’ approach – then go elsewhere – Dr Phil (author) kicks your butt into action!

So if you want a kind of ‘boot-camp’ approach – this is your book.

I did like this book, and I did learn things about myself – but I kind of felt a little ‘battered’ by the end of the book – like I’d really been through ‘boot-camp’ therapy!

So my conclusion? Not for the feint-hearted.

But if you have tried other self-help books and found them to be a bit too ‘soft’, try this book – it works – but be prepared to ‘stop making excuses’!

And if you prefer a less ‘tough’ approach try Dr Phil’s ‘Self Matters’ or Robert De Board’s ‘Counselling for Toads’.

Here are some reviews by Amazon readers:

“A Must-Read!

Phillip C. McGraw, Ph.D., better known to Oprah Winfrey fans as Dr. Phil, has popped out a refreshingly in-your-face contribution to the self-help genre that doesn't beat around the bush.

You will not be asked to commune with your inner child or vent your anger and pain. Instead, Life Strategies is a prescription for action, complete with stories, including about Oprah.

Each chapter contains at least one writing assignment, designed to stimulate honest inquiry and to challenge even your most basic assumptions.

These culminate in a meticulously detailed set of instructions for creating your life strategy.”

-- Rolf Dobelli from Luzern Switzerland --

“A self-help book to stick with;

McGraw comes up with some clear rules that govern how we fail to live up to our own expectations, and if you've spent any time thinking about the ways your life has gone wrong you may feel a sense of deep familiarity with some of the things he points out.”

-- A reader from London --


“Dr Phil leaves the reader in no doubt that until you look at the way you operate in the world and change your attitude, then you are most likely to continually misdiagnose the problem which confronts you and never obtain a satisfactory solution.”

-- Adrian Bray from Britain --


Shows the reader how to make a dramatic change in their lives. Whether its a bad relationship, a dead-end career, or a harmful habit, Phillip McGraw's "10 Life Laws" help readers wake up and get our of their ruts.”
