This book is full of inspiration and insight and you will be amazed at how simple the steps are to replicate.

I have read a lot of inspirational books in my life, but this book has to be one of the best. I loved the way Anthony Reeves shared his life stories and then told you the life lesson he took from it. There were so many ‘aha’ moments in this book that were motivational and amazing. I never thought about looking at the good traits I learned from my parents. I learned that you have to strive to be your best and set your own goals, and not worry about what others are doing. The statement that if you are not willing to change your situation, then you have to stop complaining about it was brilliant. My favourite moment in the book was to change your focus and change your philosophy. I could go on and on with my praise for this book.
