I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.
As much as I think that the book is useful in its entirety, I simply could not connect with the activities and steps presented. From a factual standpoint, the book is correct ( as many self-help books as I have read by now, I clearly differentiated between an author who has no idea what they are talking about and one that has done her research), so I am not going to judge it negatively.
I did like that this book did not contain any fluff, or too many distracting anecdotes, which was refreshing because when I read self-help books I want information, not stories how someone else used whatever wisdom the Author tries to convey.
I also like that it is filled with practical exercises, that do ask the reader to think deeper about their limiting beliefs and concepts that may hold them back.
The fact that Elizabeth Cook focused on one of what I consider the most important aspect when reading achievement related books, which is the “Why”, or reason behind one’s goal is another plus. This concept seems to be often overlooked or disregarded, but by dedicating a chapter to that subject, Elizabeth made sure that the reader becomes finally clear about why asking that deeper question is so very important in the ability to achieve one’s goals. It is a motivational breakthrough needed to keep going during tough times.
Living Large is a good, factual, and practical self-help book that surely can improve the lives of many. It just did not give me the wow-factor, or aha-moments, that some books give me. But, I honestly think, that this has more to do with me, then with the book itself, which is the reason I am giving it 4 stars.
