Book Review Show What You Are Made Of by Marie Frappier – A Honest, and Insightful Look Into Personal Transformation

Book Details:

Author: Marie Frappier
Publication Date: December 6th, 2017
Genre: Self-Help

My Thoughts

Show What You Are Made Of is incredibly personal and insightful, something that is rare to see. The honest evaluation is that the author has brought to this account of her life is refreshing and powerfully informative which is packaged in an easy to read and entertaining way.
It takes guts to evaluate your life in such detail in such public way and that made me respect the author tremendously from the get-go.
While encouraging us to do the same she allows us to do follow along and do the same work, by asking thought-provoking questions and sharing some worksheet style sections as well – another thing I did not expect but was happily surprised about.
I love how the author emphasizes the responsibility one has to their own life rather than blaming circumstances and outside factors.
This is not a standard, same old self-help book, but a personal yet relatable and practical book, that surprised me a lot. Show What You Are Made Of reads more like a memoir at times, but nevertheless contains deep and passionate lessons.
 I appreciated it the forthrightness and candor that is shown throughout the pages from Marie Frappier, which left me very impressed with the Author – hoping that she will decide to continue her writing career in this genre.

Book Review: Invisible by Hanos – A Transformational Book That Changes The Way You Look At The World

Book Review: Invisible by Hanos – A Transformational Book That Changes The Way You Look At The World

Book Details:

Title: Invisible – The Hidden Reality Of Our Lives

Author: Hanos

Publisher: Sazmick Books

Publication Date: July 8th, 2017

Genre: Self-help, Transformational

My thoughts:

I like books that surprise me, and lately, I have been confronted with a few books, fiction as well as non-fiction who have taken me out of my comfort zone, yet were a pleasant find. Invisible was one of them.

While it pushes you to examine the way you look at your own perception of what you consider reality – and to become aware of the fact that the way you view the world is tainted by many factors – it also calls you to examine the reaction of others, who, in their own bubble, react from a sometimes different pre-conceived, or unknowingly biased viewpoint.

Keeping this truth in mind, Invisible can – if you are willing to do the work – transform you and your relationships, deeply and profoundly. Hanos manages to point out different scenarios, which seem so obvious at first, but are not, when closely examined, and through those examples, wakes up the reader to re-consider how your tainted “vision” shapes your reaction to our perception of reality and affects your relationships as well.

I have a feeling that this book is going to stick with me for a while, and I am certain that it will do the same for other readers. But, if you are looking to expand and grow as a person, I think it is important for you to allow Invisible to do so.

A must read.

5 out of 5 Stars

 

Book Summary

If you want life to be more satisfying, but you are not interested in religion and are wary of approaches asking you to believe what you cannot yourself experience, invisible will enable you see life in a new way that you can directly know as true. This will be because you will turn your mind upon itself to see its limitations and inventions. Hanos will open the doors but you will walk through to see these things for yourself.

Along that way, we will look at many diverse areas of ordinary life and make new discoveries about what is happening, finding ways to overcome anger and shame as well as make a better connection with yourself and others.

Don’t miss this opportunity.

Give yourself this gift.

Book Review: Live Large by Elizabeth B. Crook - The Achiever's Guide To What's NextBook Details:

Title: Living Large – The Achiever’s Guide To What’s Next

Author: Elizabeth B. Crook

Publisher: Greenleaf Book Press

Publication Date: May 9th, 2017

Genre: Self-Help

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.

My 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.
