I have read 100's of very poor books on the Success Principles, Self Esteem, Laws of Attraction, Planning, Time Management etc, in the last few years. I started reading books about goal setting, mind control and success principles in 1985. I have used what I learnt from my extensive reading, coupled with academic qualifications, business and psychology experience, to create a consulting company, teaching seminars to corporations in strategic thinking, leadership, marketing, goal setting and business development. I also use the principles to help individuals, by guiding them as a Peak Performance Coach, teaching people cognitive methods to help goal set and enhance their lives beyond what they could do on their own. As such, I read as many books as I can, on a variety of subjects to enhance my knowledge.

So I come to this book. Whilst I have much admiration for the author, having lost a leg to cancer, I have to say I am not impressed by his book. Having read so many books in this area, I want to read something fresh and new. What you get in this book is sports training psychology mixed with standard motivational techniques which you can read in a better form in other books. A brilliant book for goal setting is the Tommy Newberry book, Success Is Not An Accident, or if you want brilliant sports motivation look at the Lou Holtz book Winning Every Day. One of the many problems with the book is that it presupposes a certain inner motivation to be the best.If you lack this inner need, then the book does not explain how to get that inner feeling, if you want it at all. So many books on the market fail to explain in essence the inner problems and issues that hold low self esteem people back. If you want a book that helps with psychological issues such as the fear of failure and low self esteem and you want an explanation why trying to implant a "I can be the best" attitude inside of you, can be counter productive, read the awesome book by Robert Kelsey What's Stopping You?

I cannot recommend this book, as there are far better books on the market such as those I have mentioned. This book may appeal to the sporty types who want that type of psycho babble, but for most people there are better books out there to help explain why you lack motivation and what to do about it.

Not recommended.

The author draws to a major extent on his personal experience in writing Personal Best. For sure he had been dealt a rough hand. Losing his leg to cancer during his teen years, it would have been easy for him to bemoan his fate and spend his time wallowing self pity. However, always a good swimmer who had previously shied away from sufficient hard training to make himself a great swimmer, he was able to use swimming as a way to motivate himself. He was quickly competing at national level, becoming an outstanding paralympian and winning medals over a period of 17 years. Subsequently he has used his life experiences to successfully engage in motivational writing and speaking and business consultancy.

As with most books of this type, I would not say that there are any great revelations. However, there is a great deal of common sense directed towards making the best of one's life which few would disagree with. The message the author is putting across is split down into bite sized chunks, and is backed with numerous illustrations which are very helpful in illustrating the points, both from his own life experience and the experiences of others. The writing is succinct and to the point with little in the way of extraneous wording.

Just how much any individual will get from reading this book will be very much down to the position in which they currently find themselves and their degree of receptiveness to the message the author is putting across. However, I could well imagine that most will get something worthwhile here as I certainly did. For some, it may well be instrumental in helping them to refocus the direction of their lives and take a greater degree of control.
