Product Description
Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills three thousand years of the history of power in to forty-eight well explicated laws. As attention--grabbing in its design as it is in its content, this bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun-tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other great thinkers. Some laws teach the need for prudence ("Law 1: Never Outshine the Master"), the virtue of stealth ("Law 3: Conceal Your Intentions"), and many demand the total absence of mercy ("Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally"), but like it or not, all have applications in real life. Illustrated through the tactics of Queen Elizabeth I, Henry Kissinger, P. T. Barnum, and other famous figures who have wielded--or been victimized by--power, these laws will fascinate any reader interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars How the book changed my life
This book has changed my life, for good and in a good way. Before I read this book, I felt naive and hopeless, I was hardworking at work and very kind and giving to my friends as well as family, yes...those you think are closest to you and have your interest at heart can be very dangerous. My boss at work got me to commit to buy expensive cars etc, and manipulated me with materials etc, friends and family always being nice until they got what they want, and not to forget the Financial Industry etc, they are all using these laws..to use and abuse you, simply as short as that! The book has made me understand what others are trying to do to me and what they could demand and get out of me. Since I have read this book, I have known how to keep bad friends and others away from my life, they were not happy with the new me as they could not longer manipulate and get what they want. I agree this book can turn one into Mr or Miss nasty, I have read this book many times and still goes back to it now and then when things in my life happens, to remind me of what I should do, so be aware, take the goods out of it.As a loving and giving person, this book has changed my life in a good way and it is now a guide for my sanity life...no other book or person has done this good change into my life, I can now control as to who is worth of my love and care and keep away from those who want to use and abuse. Thank you very much to everyone who has contributed to bringing this book into my life.

5-0 out of 5 stars i Got the Power!!!
I'm excited about this book. I ordered about 14 books and this one arrived the day after i placed all the orders together. I am suprised this book was listed in just very good condition...Seems to be in excellent condition if you ask me! Thank you for being so quick to deliver and honest.

2-0 out of 5 stars very disappointed in Kindle edition
I love this book and own it in paperback.But I bought the Kindle edition and am quite disappointed to find out how sloppily it is put together.Many words that are intended to be italicized are not.Extra lines are are put where they're not needed and are not put where they are needed.Some words are misspelled, e.g., "TOLSIOY" for "TOLSTOY" (OCR error?).The margin notes are interspersed at arbitrary places in the text, interrupting the flow, instead of doing something more reasonable like putting them all at the end of the chapter.There is an index that is completely pointless since there are no references to where the words are used (it would have been better just to leave it out entirely).

If I were the publisher, I would be embarrassed to have my name on this Kindle edition, regardless of price.And how on earth can they charge $16.99 when they are not even doing basic proofreading?!? ...let alone actually putting some thought into adapting it to the Kindle?Is this a joke?I want my money back.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Greatest
This book put a whole new spin on the art of manipulation. Regardless if we want to admit it or not we all manipulate and are manipulated in some way thoughout our lives. This books breakes down the how when and where some of these "power moves" are appropriate. It is easy reading and full of the ah-ha moments that elude us at one point and time. The stories that accompany the laws give great simple understanding to great tactics. This book was definately worth the money. I am now in the process of reading The Art of Seduction, another Robert Greene book.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Anatomy of Power Dissected Through History
Too candid and authentic, this incisive work distills thousands of years of the history of power in to 48 simple principles. Putting ethics aside, Green analyzes for you what has gained kings and emperors power in the past. Only the proven tricks that work. Never Outshine the Master. Always Say Less than Necessary. Court Attention at all Cost. Get others to do the Work for you, but Always Take the Credit. Make other People come to you - use Bait if Necessary.You may disagree with Greene, but he certainly supports his points with many examples from history. This is the ultimate guide to acquiring power the proven way. This work is very inspiring. it inspired me to create a website solely dedicated to the study and pursuit of power. ([...]) ...

Yet when Laprea Johnson walks into Anna’s lifebattered by her boyfriend on the morning after Valentine’s Daythere’s something about this particular case that Anna can’t quite shake, something that reminds the prosecutor of her own troubled past. At the trial, Laprea makes a last-minute reversal, lying on the witness stand to free her boy-friend. Shortly after he is freed, Anna is horrified to hear that Laprea’s body has been found in a trash heap. Hastily assigned to prosecute the murder case alongside intimidating chief homicide prosecutor Jack Bailey, Anna’s heart sinks when she learns that her own boyfriend, public defender Nick Wagner, is representing the accused. Torn between bringing the killer to justice and saving her personal life, Anna makes a series of choices that jeopardizes her career, her relationships, and her very life as she uncovers the shocking truth behind the murder. Weaving expert knowledge with deft storytelling, federal sex-crimes prosecutor and Harvard Law School graduate Allison Leotta takes readers on a thrilling ride through D.C.’s criminal justice system. From the back rooms of the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the flirtations and machinations of Washington’s Ivy League lawyers to the struggles of its poorest citizens on the gritty streets of Anacostia, Law of Attraction is a gripping debut from an exciting new talent. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Sharp and perceptive; great story-telling
"Law of Attraction" is a fast-paced legal thriller that combines fast-paced story-telling, carefully detailed police procedures and perceptive description of the emotional forces that lead women to continue in relationships with men who batter them.I hope it will become a series, each dealing with another aspect of Anna Curtis's works as a sex crimes and domestic abuse prosecutor.(They could all be called "Law of [...]", perhaps in alphabetical order.)I'll read them all.GML

5-0 out of 5 stars "Something happened to little girls that grew up watching their mothers being hit... It was a peculiar law of attraction."
Until reading Allison Leotta's novel, Law of Attraction, I'd forgotten just how much I enjoy legal thrillers.This debut is a pleasure from start to finish.The central character is Anna Curtis, a freshly-minted Assistant U. S. Attorney.Anna prosecutes misdemeanor domestic violence cases, and as the novel opens we witness the Laprea Johnson case from the first intake.Anna's opposing counsel for the trial is an old law school pal, Nick Wagner.Despite a strong attraction, Anna knows that she can't get involved with a public defender--and certainly not one she's up against!But after the unsatisfactory conclusion of the Johnson case, Anna and Nick's relationship changes.And it changes once more when they find themselves on opposing sides of the Johnson case for a second time.

While it is no doubt annoying for a novelist to be compared to her fictional creation, it is clear that Allison and Anna share more than a hair color.Allison Leotta also graduated Harvard Law and became an AUSA in Washington, DC.Her intimate familiarity with Anna's world really shows.She is unquestionably strongest when writing from Anna's POV, and somewhat weaker when channeling her inner city characters.At one point one of them claims, "All due respect, Ms. Curtis, but you don't know my life."`Nuff said.Still, Leotta manages to create some interesting and layered characters.

For a novice novelist, she does an excellent job with exposition, and really explains the ins and outs of what prosecutors are up against.The prose and dialogue are strong as well.It's not that the writing is particularly beautiful, but it isn't clunky either.It's just easy reading without being dumb.The pages fly by and there's a welcome vein of humor throughout the book to relieve the dark subject matter.

With any mystery or thriller, it's really the plot that makes or breaks the story.I basically figured the whole thing out about halfway through the novel.(I'm clever like that.)When, 50 pages later, the protagonist was thinking along the same lines as me, I realized that perhaps the novelist was more clever than I had given her credit for and had tossed a few red herrings into the mix.In the end, I did get some of it right, but there were a heck of a lot of surprises along the way.This is a fast-paced book, and if somehow the mystery doesn't keep you completely riveted, there's a good chance the romantic aspect will.Things get a bit steamy.

While Law of Attraction isn't going to win any literary awards, it was a terrifically entertaining debut and was more than enough to satisfy me.This is an author to watch.I'm looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Read! Can't Put Down, Must Pick Up
A fantastic thriller that kept me turning the page....my wife would have to stop me late in the night. Hard to believe this is Mrs. Leotta's debut novel. Full of suspense, grit, and a powerful women protaganist that keep everything moving - start to finish. I hope to see more from this author.


Law of Attraction: A Novel

5-0 out of 5 stars super legal thriller
In Washington D.C. idealistic rookie Anna Curtis has become an Assistant U.S. Attorney.She works domestic violence cases that have required her to remain distant and aloof from the brutality she sees on the faces of the victims.However, on Valentine's day, Anna loses her detached objectivity when battered Laprea Johnson files a complaint against her boyfriend former con D'Marco Davis, who is defended by Curtis' Harvard Law School classmate Nick Wagner.

In the courtroom, to Anna's shock, Laprea, under oath, recants her previous testimony allowing her boyfriend who is also the father of her twin preschoolers to avoid jail.Not long after the case is dismissed, Laprea's pregnant corpse is found amidst trash as if someone threw out the garbage.Assigned to work with chief homicide detective Jack Bailey, in a case against Davis; Anna is shocked that her boyfriend Wagner since the abuse trial, is representing the accused again.She must choose between her career and her personal life as both teeter; but remains unaware that her life is in peril if she gets to close to the truth.

This is a super legal thriller, which reads very fresh due to the star being a rookie playing in the big leagues.The story line is fast-paced from the first complaint until the final resolution with a nice late twist that diligent readers will see the clues.However, even though the men in her life (her lover the opposing lawyer, the homicide chief, and the accused) are fully developed, this is the tyro's tale as she works the perilous halls of justice.

Awesome insights and lessons for today's leaders.Maxwell is one of the best in the business on this subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good concept on leadership
The 21 laws defines the leadership with 21 laws. Some of the laws we follow and some of these laws we don't follow. It gives an idea of what happens if we don't follow the laws. The self-introspection with the understanding of these 21 laws can help us identifing the missining links in leadership and work towards become a great leader.

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical, user-friendly and profound
I was lucky enough to hear John Maxwell speak at a training course I attended and this book is an extension of his wisdom.I would recommend it to anyone who wants to develop greater levels of leadership in their lives - both professional and personal. To some, the topic may seem a little 'dry', however John's style of writing, like his presentation style, is easy to follow, practical and user-friendly. Buy this book and begin putting it's content into practice and enjoy the difference it will make in your life.

2-0 out of 5 stars No added value for becoming a good leader
This book just describes the qualities a leader should have. It does not teach you how you become a leader.
The qualities a leader should have are that obvious that this book doesn't give you any added value.
Anyway the book is easy to read and it's build in logical chapters.
What disturbs me most, is how the author continues throughout the book to brag about his excellent leadership qualities. In my country, we don't like people who show off too much. After a few chapters, it realy worked on my nerves to hear for the 27th time the adoration of his own leadership skills.

3-0 out of 5 stars Laws?
Yes, Maxwell writes and practices laws of leadership. I found some to be overlapping while others were more like pillars. His use of a broad scope of examples and references was great, but I am not a real fan of his.
In any case, quick and easy read. He's certainly worth a read even if you don't agree with the laws. ... Read more

"The Laws", Plato's most lengthy dialogue, has longbeen regarded as the most comprehensive explanation of the possible consequences of a practical application of his philosophy.We might expect the first question Plato ponders to be "What is Law?"Instead, the question posed is "Who is given the credit for laying down your laws?"We are privy to an interaction between a powerfulstatesman and an Athenian philosopher on theisland of Crete.We watch as a plan for a new political order is worked out that embodiesmany of the issues that we still struggle withtoday, such as the status of women, the statusof homosexuals, the family, criminal law, andthe role of religion in a healthy society.We at Timeless Classic Books hope that you enjoy this ancient thought-provoking story that may change the way you think about modern day issues.(Timeless Classic Books) ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Plato As Law Giver
I read this book as part of my research into Plato himself.

It's hard for me to see how relevant a book like this is today.Plato's world was very different than today.People owned slaves, there was no internet or mass communications, Christianity didn't even exist yet, etc..

However it did provide some of the insights I was looking for about Plato himself.

Plato's writings have a smooth quality.St. Augustine called Plato's philosophy very 'clear'.Reading his works can almost be like a sort of religious experience since he often talks about the various mythological gods and God Himself.A book carries the spirit of the author I guess.

Plato believed in reincarnation and the law of karma.For example he felt that the death penalty is a blessing in disguise for incorrigible criminals since it prevents them from contaminating their souls with even more evil.

I feel this book shows the influence of two things that were very important for Plato;his belief in Atlantis and the books in the old testament of the bible that talk about the details of those laws that were given from on high.These two things were always there deep in his thoughts.

Atlantis was a utopian society at first and it seems that for all of his life Plato was trying to recreate this ideal society.But I doubt that he could have imagined the information that came out in the 1900s from the great Edgar Cayce (Osiris).Sometimes when people see flying saucers those are our ancestors from Atlantis travelling through time.

It is not a coincidence that fate chose Plato to preserve the legend of Atlantis for future generations. He was there on Atlantis himself at the very beginning.

Interestingly the author of this translation doesn't agree that The Laws shows how Plato became more realistic when he realized that the idealistic society described in The Republic could never become a reality.That is a common theory that many people believe.

Rather he feels Plato would have known that The Republic could never beome a reality.

I think the next thing I'll read about Plato is a biography as part of my ongoing research.

5-0 out of 5 stars The true purpose of government
The truth never changes.As relevant today as the day it was written.It will remind you of what the true purpose of law and government is.It will remind you of what our founding fathers intended when they wrote the constitution.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gets it right...
Great insights into the concept of justice, and the dangerous consequences and impact of twisting the law, away from impartial principles, to support any agenda.

5-0 out of 5 stars I cannot recommend this book enough
"The Law" is a small book on the basics of economic principles written by Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850), a French economist and member of their National Assembly. He only published works during the last 5 years of his life, which was cut short by a lingering illness.

The Law struck me as an ecnomics version of Thomas Paine's Common Sense - a short, easy to understand book full of impassioned, clearly laid out arguments and examples that clearly demonstrate the author's arguments.

Bastiat was a man who was not in synch with his times or his country. He grew up in Napoleonic France, a time and place that replaced the idea of individual liberty with government action for the good of the individual. Bastiat argues (and supplies plenty of examples to back his arguments) that this is a perversion of the purpose of government: "The organizers maintain that society, when left undirected, rushed headlong to its inevitable destruction because the instincts of the people are so perverse. The legislators claim to stop this suicidial course and to give it a saner direction. Apparently, then, the legislators and the organizers have received from Heaven an intelligence and virtue that place them beyond and above humankind; if so, let them show their titles to this superiority. They would be shepherds to us, their sheep. Certainly such an arrangement presupposes that they are naturally superior to the rest of us." (pp. 62-3)

Bastiat begins with a look at the origins of government. He argues, like Locke and Hobbes that governments had to have been organized to protect life and property. That is their purpose and when they stray from it, be it with protectionist schemes like tariffs or with Legal Plunder programs that "take from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong...if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do with commiting a crime...then abolish this law without delay, for it is not only an evil itself, but it is a fertile source for further evils...it will spread, multiply and develop into a system." (p. 21)

Bastiat would not be happy with amount of influence most modern Western governments have over the economies of their countries and the lives of their people. I can only imagine this Frenchman would be a proud supporter of the Tea Party movement - low taxes, no loopholes or special breaks for favored industries, take a hard look at all government programs and get rid of those that engage in the "Legal Plunder" that I mentioned in the previous program.

So, what is this short book "The Law?" I found it to be exciting, invigorating, intellectually stimulating, simple in it language and argument and every bit of a match for Thomas Paine's Common Sense. If the opening lines of the Declaration of Independence have meaning for you, if Adam Smith'sThe Wealth of Nationsmakes sense to you, if you think Hayek's The Road to Serfdomand Freidman's Free to Choose are relevant to the modern world make a point of reading this short book - it is powerful in its simplicity and it still has meaning 160 years after its initial publication.

I cannot recommend this book enough.

Note: Please make sure you get the 1950 translation - by all accounts it is superior.

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic that will reshape your thinking about government
This book by Bastiat, although an old book, is SO relevant today.Is asks important questions about the role and nature of government, especially tax funded programs.It's a must read for any homeschool highschool student, law student or concerned citizen.It may very well influence who you vote for during election time!

1-0 out of 5 stars A ridiculous book
The pre-Constitution Articles of Confederation were found to be unsatisfactory for governing the colonies or states. Thus, begat the Constitution which has served quite nicely, especially in collecting enough taxes to have a modern army and educated (public school) military personal to man complex weapon systems.

Under Bastiat's idea of a limited and poor government he would have had to tell (if he been alive at the time) Hitler and WWII Japanese to go away and not bother the free (and greedy) men of America. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars All about finical gain?!?
This book was very disheartening for me. I have read most of Chopra's books and this was the worst. I am buddhist and used to respect him highly as a teacher and spiritual guide.However after reading this book, my illusions were found to be wrong.In this book he speaks of karmic nature giving us monetary gifts in return of good behavior."...you will never feel guilty, or insecure about money, or affluence, or fullfilling desires, because you will realize that the essence of all material wealth is life energy." In this book he fully contradicts everything he pretends to represent.I was very saddened to read this book.It is hard to find out a person you trust as a spiritual guide, in all acuality only cares about money and material goods.Sounds more like bad karma to me.

4-0 out of 5 stars Deprak Chopra at his typical level of enlightenment and abundance lite!
I bought this DVD collection for a friend who requested it. A bit simplistic about enlightenment, happiness and abundance. But maybe all those things are simple. Repeats his basic principles in a pleasant, hypnotic voice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simple but powerful book of principles to live by
"The Seven Spiritual Laws Of Success: A Practical Guide To The Fulfillment Of Your Dreams" by Deepak Chopra is a short and simple book, but also one that is also profound and enjoyable as a guide filled with timeless wisdom and practical steps you can apply to create more success in all areas of your life.It is based on his longer book, "Creating Affluence."

Chopra begins by saying these are also the laws of life, and that they are the same principles that nature uses to create everything in material existence.He then defines success as the continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals.He says success is the ability to fulfill your desires with effortless ease.He then briefly describes the concept of laws.After these definitions, he proceeds to go over the seven spiritual laws of success and how you can apply them in our lives.

Each of the chapters begins with a couple of sentences regarding the law.Then there is a quote related to the concept.Then there are a number of pages explaining the law.Finally, each chapter ends with some steps for applying the law.

The first law is of pure potentiality and is based on pure consciousness, which is found through practicing silence, meditation, and non-judgment.The second law is the law of giving.He notes that it could also be called the law of giving and receiving, because the two complete a dynamic exchange, and the more you give, the more you receive.You practice by giving and being grateful for all you receive.The third is the law of Karma, or cause and effect.This refers to action and the consequence of that action.You learn to make choices and recognize the consequences of the choices you make.The fourth law is of least effort, and as Chopra explains, the law is based on the fact that nature's intelligence functions with effortless ease and abandoned carefreeness.To practice this law you practice acceptance, responsibility, and defenselessness.Law five is that of intention and desire.This chapter helps you understand your desires and relinquish your attachment to the outcome.The sixth law is of detachment.According to Chopra, to acquire anything in the physical universe, you have to relinquish your attachment to it.The seventh, and final, law is that of Dharma or purpose in life.This chapter focuses on our unique talents and how we express it.It's about our true self, our unique talents, and service to humanity.The book then has a short conclusion that brings everything together.

Even though the book deals with complex topics, it is written in a very easy to understand manner.The book is short and can be read quickly, but will have a more profound impact if savored slowly.One should take some time to understand how the laws can be applied to one's life through the suggestions at the end of each chapter.

This simple book really does share some powerful principles to live by and help you create a more satisfying life.I've just read it again for a reminder of what's important, and to help ground me toward living at a congruent level.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Modern Classic of Perennial Wisdom
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success is a tour de force, a spiritual masterpiece.It is not, however, for everybody.Do not let its slimness or big print fool you: this is a deep, profound book.It requires an informed reader, someone capable of grasping such pearls of wisdom.I see that there are numerous reviews giving it only one star, and the authors of most of them seem to have an axe to grind against Mr. Chopra, as though he were the subject of the "review" and not the book itself.I am reading this book now for the third time, and working my way through it.For this really is a workbook, a book to be slowly read, meditated on, and its methods PRACTICED.If one simply reads it like any other book, like a mystery novel, say, then it will be just so many good ideas - in one ear, out the other, utterly useless.Or, in the case of the many uninformed readers, or readers who do not have sufficient spiritual knowledge to appreciate this book, one will just see it as jibberish.ANY book, from great classics such as Tolstoy's War and Peace to Marx's Kapital, will be found by SOME readers to be worthless, silly, etc.This is not because the book IS those qualities but because certain readers simply lack the proper preparation for the book.It is like a kindergartener trying to understand theoretical physics.Nonetheless, this book can be read and understood best by someone with an understanding of Eastern philosophy, as well as someone who has read books on pop psychology such as the classic, Psycho-Cybernetics.This book is easily understandable by someone with a high school education and some basic background in spiritual/metaphysical studies.But do yourself a favor: read this book with a journal.Read a chapter per day and consciously try to put into practice the advice.Record the results in your journal.Live this book, or it is just so much intellectual decoration.

5-0 out of 5 stars Puts immaterial into words
The heart is holistic, contextual and intuitive, Chopra MD argues. He is right. Intention is transformation of energy and information. His unique way of expressing the Seven Laws was informative and easy to use. Seven laws include : Potentiality, Giving, Karma (Cause and Effect), Least effort, Intention and Desire, Detachment, and Dharma (True purpose).
I believe the book is worth the money. At the time is was written, his ideas and these conceptions were cutting edge in Self awareness/Universalist (someone who believes in all paths and respects the differences in others) movement. This is an ideal I follow and I realize it is tough as it asks you to accept all and judge noone including yourself. I recommend this to spiritual people and people desiring to see how they can work with Energy/thought and affirmation to create desired outcomes. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars I don't get it
Maybe its me.I don't know, I read 100's of books per year.This I couldn't get into.I've never been a fan of 50 & suspect a motive behind Greene's association, but what do I know, (or care) I'm not really of that ilk.I gave it 2 stars because I suppose there are some who will get something from it.All I want to say is Richard Wright (1 of my all time hands down favorites), Baldwin, Dostoyevsky, Douglass, Malcolm? (okay maybe Malcolm).Does/did 50 even know who these men were prior to "writing" this book?One would surmise, if he did, his life would have turned out different? Ya think?

1-0 out of 5 stars I'll take 48 Laws of Power back please
I'll keep this review short, as I dont see it worth wasting too much time on. Robert Greene's prior book (48 Laws of Power) was a good read. This, is not. It's basically a somewhat obvious attempt to make 50 Cent look like something besides a thug who can make words rhyme. Perhaps it was just me, but if youre going to use someone as an example of cunning, subversive psychology, leadership, foresight etc, you're going to have to come with a somewhat more substantial character than 50 Cent. What series of terrible choices prompted him getting a co-author on the book, I can only imagine. An unfortunate and poor choice of sponsorship by Robert Greene, an otherwise good author.

1-0 out of 5 stars This is propaganda, not a serious book.
I can only assume that 50 cent showed up to Robert Greene's house with a dump truck full of money and coerced him into writing this book.It is definitely the worst book I've ever read and the ONLY book I've wanted to burn.Basically a spew of propaganda about how 50 cent is better than Ja Rule, the book details 50 cent's rise to fame by accidentally using the 48 laws of power on Ja Rule and various drug dealers who stood in 50's way. It is, IMHO, a childish attempt at propaganda to make 50 look like something other than a two bit hood.In the end it accomplishes the opposite.The 48 Laws of Power is a serious and far superior book...The 48 Laws of Power

Product Description
When a hurricane warning is announced, everyone's concerns and actions become focused on that expectation; the hurricane essentially becomes the future which people are "living into." Similarly, when an organization needs to transform or make the leap to a higher level, everyone involved should be "living into" the vision of the organization's new, improved future. But in the majority of organizations, the future people are living into is based on past performance and experience, and so major transformation is almost impossible.

Steve Zaffron is, CEO of Vanto Group which has helped hundreds of companies envision and effectively implement major change and performance improvement. Zaffron and Dave Logan outline this proven system for rallying all of an organization's employees around a new vision, and more importantly, making it stick. Their focus is on making such transformations permanent and repeatable, providing practical examples from Vanto Group’s clients such as Apple, Lockheed Martin, Reebok, BHP-Billiton, Johnson & Johnson, Morgan Stanley, and many others. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible Terrible Book
Seeing the reference to Landmark education should have been my first sign of how terrible this book was going to be. It is rare that you find a book this bad. How bad you ask? Well let's see, these authors take advanced concepts like 'listening', 'talking to your employees', give them some outlandish conceptual name, and than market them as some new immutable law - give me a break.

Save your money and time. Nothing new here, and a bit of an insult to the reader.

1-0 out of 5 stars Out of touch
1. While attending Steve Zaffron's Three Laws of Performance three day workshop, he indicated the only way to get anything out of the book is to attend the workshop first.Such a great endorsement by the co-author!

2.I attended the workshop and unfortunately wasted three days of my life.The material is out of touch with the issues of the present economy.I'm afraid the result is a by-product of a philosopher writing a business book.

3.Most importantly, if you believe actions to speak louder than words, this book is not for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Braking Through Barriers And Achieving Success in Performance
The Three Laws of Performance clarify the process of getting groups to perform effectively.The book provides great examples to follow when implement change process.It looks at the dynamics of groups, how they function and effective ways to move them towards a common goal.The process looks at performance from a view of service to individuals; meeting the needs of the individual who then produces results that impact the success of the group.It is clear that the methods and processes outlined in the book have been proven and tested.They work for me.Through the implementation of the methods outlined in the book I have been able to achieve high performance from the groups in my office.

4-0 out of 5 stars Transformative work for you and your organization . . .
Steve Zaffron and Dave Logan have written a book that changes the game when it comes to taking your company to the next level. They have done so by pointing out how to clear the past from defining your future and instead allowing you to create the future you desire. Sounds a bit "over the top" and it is not. If we as business leaders can take our companies through this long and difficult process, then we have the opportunity to finally move beyond the normal company dysfunction and have everyone on the same page.

This very well written book is part of the Warren Bennis collection of business management thought. The series is devoted exclusively to new and exemplary contributes to leadership practice, and this volume is definitely in the right place. The authors organized the book in three parts: 1.) the three laws in action, 2.) rewriting the Future of Leadership and 3.) mastering the Game of Performance.

The three laws of performance are: 1.) How people perform correlates to how situations occur to them. 2.) How situations occur arises in language. And 3.) Future-based language transforms how situations occur to people. The book clarifies these terms for the reader. First "occur" means the reality that arises within and from your perspective on the situation. "`How a situation occurs' includes your view of the past (why things are the way they are) and the future (where all this is going)." It is critical to understand that our view of the future includes our view of the past - and that therefore limits the options for most people. A lot of work will be to understand that past, put it to rest and be complete with it so that the future is no longer being limited by our stories, beliefs or convictions about reality from the past.

Next, it is important to understand that "how situations occur is inseparable from language." The authors use the Helen Keller story to demonstrate how incredibly powerful language is in shaping our perception of "reality." It is worth repeating their report from Anne Sullivan, Keller's tutor:

"For nearly six years I had no concepts whatever of nature or mind or death or God. I literally thought with my body. Without a single exception my memories of that time are tactual. I was impelled like an animal to seek food and warmth. I remember crying, but not the grief that caused the tears . . . . I was like an unconscious clod of earth. Then, suddenly, I knew not how or where or when, my brain felt the impact of another mind, and I awoke to language, to knowledge of love, to the usual concepts of nature, of good and evil! I was actually lifted from nothingness to human life."

Keller, because she can compare life without language to the discovery of language - through Anne Sullivan and sign language - saw language for what it is: "a force that makes us human, that gives us a past and a future, that allows us to dream, to plan, to set and realize goals." The authors also explain that we humans deal with a phenomenon of the "communicate the unsaid but communicated."

The third law is based on the concept that there are two different ways to use language. The first is descriptive - using language to depict or represent things as they are or have been. Future-based or generative language does not describe how a situation occurs; it transforms how it occurs. It has the power to create new futures and to create visions. It eliminates the descriptive limitations of the future by rewriting the future that was originally written by our descriptive language.

Part I of the book comprises three chapters--Transforming an Impossible Situation, Where is the Key to Performance: and Rewriting a Future That's Already Written. This section introduces the three laws and helps clarify the meaning of the terminology used. It's critical to remember that language defines our experience and so to define how words are used, the definitions for the purpose of the authors clearly communicating is key to the reader's successful understanding of the concepts put forth.

Part II of the book comprises two chapters and is particularly poignant at the time of this writing since we are presently having lots of discussion about the leadership lessons being learned from several incidents including the Gulf of Mexico Oil spill. The chapters are: With So Many Books on Leadership, Why Are There So Few Leaders? And The Self-Led Organization. It is the contention of the authors that there are two "Leadership Corollaries." The first is "Leaders have a say, and give others a say, in how situations occur." That is to say that a leader helps create the future, inspires others to see that future and align with it and makes sure that the environment needed for people to align exists.

The second Leadership Corollary is "Leaders master the conversational environment." The authors suggest that we consider that our organizations are a network of conversations. They ask, "Is there anything that matters that isn't done through conversations?" Conversations produce innovations. Conversations are the vehicle for delivery of services. Conversations coordinate activities.

The third Leadership Corollary is "Leaders listen for the future of their organization." Leaders create conversations from the Third Law (Future-based language transforms how situations occur to people) to invent futures for the organization that didn't previously exist. However, "leaders don't rewrite the future by themselves--they create the space and provide the `listening' for that future."

Part III of the book comprises three chapters: Who or What is Leading Your Life?, The Path to Mastery and Breaking the Performance Barrier. In this section the authors tackle the hard fact that there is almost always someone or something that is driving our lives. It could be a distant past decision you made about who you were based on how an event occurred to you. To be authentic (to be your own author), you need to "find your native energies and desires, and then find your way of acting on them." Who are you really and how did you become who you are? Answering these questions requires some deep, difficult work on our parts. The authors give us a framework to do that work.

The chapter on mastery points out that there are no "Steps to Mastery." The point is that the best way to learn a new language is to be immersed in it. There is no one best way to do things, and when you are immersed in a culture to learn the language, things to not go sequentially and neatly. Instead there is chaos and lots of parallel paths. There are milestones however, and they are:

1. Seeing your "Terministic Screen" in action
Leadership is about inventing something radically new, in concert with those who will implement it, and it can't be done through a formula, steps or checklist. And to create something radically new, we have to realize we are always viewing the world through a Terministic Screen - the names we have for things, situations and the events of the past are like a set of contact lenses that filter out possibilities for the way something is and limits it to what we "believe" it is.

2. Building a New Terministic Screen
The example given by the authors here is to think about how Galileo had to overcome the Terministic Screen of his time with the sun "rising" in the morning and "setting" in the evening. That is the Terministic Screen of the day, confirmed by human observation, was that the sun was doing the moving, the action. It limited people's view of possibilities, specifically that the earth was rotating, not "still." We have the same issues in our world today. When you have that "Aha!" moment and get a breakthrough to an issue, you likely had to recognize a change in your "Terministic Screen"; you put on a "new set of lenses."

3. You'll see New Opportunities for elevated performance everywhere
Zaffron and Logan proclaim that shortly after you pass the second milestone, you will begin to notice you are seeing old situations with a new perspective. You will begin to ask in various daily situations, "How must the situations be occurring to the people here, such that they are doing what they are doing." "How does my spouse occur to me, and me to her, such that we behave as we do?" And perhaps a bit more profound, "How must I occur to myself, given what I do in these types of situations?"

The call to action is in Chapter 8 - Breaking the Performance Barrier. Here the authors advise that the reader take on the following commitments:

1. Get out of the stands.
Are you in the game, or only an observer? What kind of conversations are you having?

2. Create a New Game
A game starts when some influential person uses future-based language and says that something is more important than something else.

3. Make the obstacles conditions of the Game
If something occurs to you and others as an obstacle, you'll push back by playing on the obstacle's terms. Instead, make the obstacles conditions of the game.

4. Share your insights
So who do you share with? How will you improve the performance of your organization if you don't share what you learn about breaking the performance barrier?

5. Find the Right Coach
From the Three Laws, great coaching alters how the situation of the game occurs for the players, especially at the critical moments. The coach will say and do whatever is necessary to win the game.

6. Start filing your past in the past
Get the future and the past straightened out, once and for all. We all make a very simple and far-reaching mistake--one that you must not make if you're going to elevate performance. We use past experiences and our Terministic Screen as a filter that defines and limits how situations occur to us.

7. Play the Game as if your life depended on it;
because, in actuality, it does depend on it. So "play the game passionately, intensely, and fearlessly. But don't make it significant. It's just a game."

This is not the average book on leadership and performance enhancement. If you take this book seriously, embrace the suggestions of the authors, your life will be transformed - never to be the same again.

Product Description

Twenty years ago, while riding in the back of a New York City taxicab, syndicated columnist and business consultant David J. Pollay had an awakening-and he converted the lesson he learned that day into a life philosophy: By letting other people's “garbage”-their negativity-simply “pass by,” and not dumping garbage on others, you can become happier and more successful, both personally and professionally. Since David published the “Law“ in his newspaper column three years ago, more than 1,000 blogs have posted it, millions more have read it, and organizations worldwide have adopted it. And the numbers keep growing. Translated into nearly 50 languages, people from more than 100 countries have taken David's “No Garbage Trucks! Pledge.” All over the world people remember the focusing metaphor of the garbage truck for what can be achieved in life by not staking success and happiness on the behavior of others. Powerful and easily understood, The Law of the Garbage Truck will guide and inspire readers everywhere, every day.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Law of the Garbage Truck
To be fair, I know David Pollay. That said, the best thing about The Law of the Garbage Truck is how well it reflects the man I know. This book captures the essence of being good and doing good. In very simple and straight-forward language, David talks about a concept that will be life-changing for anyone that reads the book. Big ideas are often simple too. And this idea is huge.

The great part about this book is its clear and consistent message. Don't be a garbage truck and don't let the garbage truck dump on you. The examples are excellent, the impact real.

I believe The Law of the Garbage Truck is going to take the world by storm simply because its ideas are international in scope and hit us right in the middle of our hearts and minds, no matter who we are.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Quickest Way to Happiness
I'm a very happy man today! And I'm going to be more successful. I just finished reading The Law of the Garbage Truck. The author, David J. Pollay, gave me an amazing, easy and quick philosophy that promises to improve my personal and business life forever. In fact, I call the book, "The Quickest Way to Happiness."

I've read about many ways on how we can control of our own lives and be more productive. But Pollay's approach is the best - and it works. It's perfect for the uncertainty of today. His message is simple: don't worry about negative things you can't control; concentrate on what matters. We've heard this so many times, but the author gives a way we can finally practice it.

The message is serious, but it's a fun book and a quick read. It's packed with wise advice, stories and "action questionnaires" that makes it easy to control your life with one decision. Pollay is a masterful story teller. Can't wait for his next book.

The author says the book is not an encyclopedia. But it should be everyone's Bible. It is in my house. Everyone around the world should read The Law of the Garbage Truck. I can't think of a better gift for the holidays!

5-0 out of 5 stars Be the first to create your own happiness
I would be the first and definitely not the last to say I need this book more then anyone I know. I tend to let others "dump" on me and I very often am the "garbage truck" myself.

There are 8 commitments to "The Law of the Garbage Truck". Each commitment has a chapter explaining what they mean. But my favorite part were the chapters following each explanation, they are everyday scenarios of how to work through the problems that face us and to recognize when you need to avoid your normal response to the garbage in/coming in your life. At the end of each chapter there is a "call to action", where the author gives you a task to look into your life and make a positive change.

A common theme I got from this book is- "smile, wave, wish them well, move on and let the garbage trucks PASS YOU BY".

Two of the eight commitments that I got the most out of
1- "Do let your own Garbage Trucks pass you by."
I always Let past mistakes and hurts haunt me and cause me to loose focus on my own happiness. Mr. Pollay's book has helped me work through this and even though it's only been a week of me applying these "laws" my attitude has been a lot happier. I still have a long way to go but I love where I am going.

2- "Do avoid becoming someone else's Garbage Truck"
I tend to think "well if i can't be happy then they don't need to be happy either". This is not fair to others OR myself. By being the source of garbage not only am I hurting others, I am hurting myself as well.
Thus section has really helped me recognize when I am dumping on others and how to let my reactions change. I have a VERY long way to work on this, but I'm excited for the outcome.

I think everyone in the world needs this book. If we all could follow "The Law of the Garbage Truck" we would all be a happier people. And with this book translated into over 50 different languages it is becoming possible for others to get into the act.

Also, if you are a Christian and read this book with the Christian perspective you will see that this is how God wants us to live our lives.
Eph 4:29 "do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth but what is helpful for building up others according to their needs..."
James 1:19 "..be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger."

Once you are done reading this book, I encourage you to take the "No Garbage Truck Pledge"

5-0 out of 5 stars Who me?Spreading Garbage?
I loved reading The Law of the Garbage Truck because it helped me to recognize all the people that I was letting dump their "garbage" on me and that it was impacting my attitudes and how I was moving through the world.After reading the book, it empowered me to walk away more quickly and not feel bad about it.But, perhaps the insight I REALLY gained from this book was when I did some of the quizzes and realized that I too was spreading garbage to others.Little things that I didn't realize that could impact others.How easy it is for us to blame others for their negativity and its impact on us and rarely look at ourselves and our contributions. Thank you David Pollay for giving me the gift of this book.Immediately after reading it you will have a heightened awareness of when you are spreading garbage and when others are doing it to you so that you can reverse the cycle and begin to live a happier, more positive life every day!

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended- Insightful, quick read!
The Law of the Garbage Truck is an insightful book that forces you to examine whether or not you are a Garbage Truck. This quick read is hard to put down, and teaches you how to deal with negative people in your life as well as how to become a positive person in society. Pollay shares very relatable examples from his personal life, which show us that we can all have bad days but we should strive to not accept garbage in our lives and not dumb garbage on others. ...

Michael J. Losier's "LAW of ATTRACTION" has many things to commend it. It is based on centuries of human experience and when applied in the manner he clearly explains, it could work to improve any relationship, life, work, schooling, or anything that is presently negative in your life.

Michael is a super salesman and what he pitches will resonate with many people who need the belief that the Law of Attraction is the answer to all their problems. It is his constant positive message that is so convincing, comforting, and gives the listener the strength and courage to try his messages. It is true that you draw to yourself what you believe about yourself.

So, be careful about what you think, you feel, you believe, because it will determine your actions and the reactions of those you meet. I agree that honest self-knowledge, deciding what you want from life, clarifying that, and keeping a journal will all help improve your life.

My problem, and that's why people gravitate away from my messages, is that I want them to realize that certain people, events, and institutions have defined and shaped you. These become part of your neurology and do not disappear! They can be modified, but too often people listen to a CD, go to a conference, or watch a video and are temporarily excited and try it for a while. When they find it isn't as easy as it's been presented, (like dieting) they return to their previous predispositions. That`s why I don't pretend that if you merely follow my lead that your life will immediately and easily improve. Life is complicated; it takes constant effort to simplify it.

Law of Attraction: The Science of Attracting More of What You Want and Less of What You Don't
By Michael J. Losier ISBN 0-97322-400-2, Michael J. Losier, 2003

If you are ready for some "nuts and bolts" on how to change your life for the better, this book will address your first "attraction." It isn't a matter of "does the law of attraction work?" It's working all the time, but we attract the very things we don't want. It's truly a matter of having better information in easy-to-understand language with a format to help guide you step by step. If you have watched The Secret and were wondering what your next step might be, this is it.

I still have a hard time believing that people trust in the supposed LOA.It is not a law.You do not attract what you think about, which is the basic premise.Starving kids are not attracting starvation.It is an immature concept.You may get what you work towards.The LOA crowd who were supposedly influenced by the Science of Getting Rich missed this great books message.The SOGR is about visualization, gratitude and above all personal action.The SOGR is not about attracting at all.Read the SOGR which is free all over the net and when you are ready to take action check out Desired Outcomes Implementation Technology a great ebook which really reasonable and gives an action road map.It is at desiredoutcomes.infoI wish these LOA teachers would be more honest about how things come to be in the real world.

The book was in excellent condition as good if not better than discribed. I received it in no time at all. I would recommend this person for purchases.

The book was received fairly quickly!Hardly any noticeable damage to the book but could tell it was used.Great buy for the price!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Standard Addition to Law School Library
I usually have this dictionary next to me when I'm studying. I rarely take it with me, as it's huge....But nonetheless I would recommend this version or at the very least the pocket edition if you're about to start law school. It's very helpful for words that you don't know, and words that you thought you knew until you realized they had a different meaning. Buy it. It's an investment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
I bought this book for a "Language Access Specialist" course that I recently took. The book was very helpful in that it explained terms in ways that made the contextual translation of legal terms into Spanish much easier. Thanks for the book and the super fast shipping. It arrived 3 days early.

5-0 out of 5 stars Black's Law is essential, but which version?
For current or future law students Black's Law Dictionary is an essential reference book for your library, and as one of my professors told me, "if you don't want an abridged education, don't buy the abridged version." You'll also gain access to an online version of Black's through any Westlaw account, but it's one version behind, and the UI isn't as easy to navigate. I think the hardcover dictionary is worth the money. Finally, a word about the Deluxe Edition: no. I can't see paying almost double for what it offers. My advice is to stick with the Standard Edition. ... Read more

Product Description
Here is the Holy Grail of success philosophy: Napoleon Hill’s complete and original formula to achievement presented in fifteen remarkable principles—now newly designed in a handsome single-volume edition.

This is the master volume of the extraordinary work that began the career of Napoleon Hill. Originally produced by Hill in 1928 as an eight-book series, The Law of Success is now available to contemporary readers in a single edition, redesigned and reset for ease of reading.

The Law of Success is the “golden key” to Hill’s thought—his complete and unabridged mind-power method for achieving your goals. After interviewing dozens of industrialists, diplomats, thought leaders, and successful people from all walks of life, the young Hill distilled what he learned into these fifteen core lessons, organized with an introductory chapter, “The Master Mind,” that serves as a primer to Hill’s overall philosophy.

As Hill saw it, these lessons work as a “mind stimulant” that “will cause the student to organize and direct to a DEFINITE end the forces of his or her mind, thus harnessing the stupendous power which most people waste.”

While future classics of Napoleon Hill would inspire millions of readers, there is no substitute for The Law of Success for everyone who wants to grasp the full range of Hill’s ideas and tap their transformative power. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The principals are correct, some of the examples are outdated.
I have read the full book and this book on CD covers the basics. As my title suggests, I feel that the laws are still correct but many examples are outdated (the book was written 85 years ago and science is more exact now).I wish someone had forced me to read it when I was still in High School, but of course I was too cool. Even now I feel this book and CD's are changing my life and relationships with others. I highly recommend both the book and the Book on CD version to anyone interested in being a successful person.

1-0 out of 5 stars Mind Numbingly Boring
Napoleon Hill was a visionary writer with a fantastic idea that he meticulously developed over many years.

Unfortunately, the people who are attempting to profit from his work are typical Americans who are in love with themselves and their own voice.If you want to listen to dozens of hours of self-praise and constant name-dropping of a handful of past giants of industry and sparsely seeded with the sixteen laws of success, then this audio course is for you.

I think 80 percent of the people buying this course would have binned it after listening to the first hour.It really would take a very determined listener to reach section 2 and a total masochist to suffer the constant droning to the end of the course.

Personally, you would be doing yourself a favour if you looked for a copy of the original book that has not been emancipated by this self-interested profiteering bore.

Thankfully, I was given a copy of this course for free and did not suffer the indignity of actually being ripped off by having to pay for it.

Product Description

This book presents the powerful basics of the original Teachings of Abraham. Within these pages, you’ll learn how all things, wanted and unwanted, are brought to you by this most powerful law of the universe, the Law of Attraction. (that which is like unto itself is drawn). You’ve most likely heard the saying “Like attracts like,” “Birds of a feather flock together,” or “It is done unto you as you believe” (a belief is only a thought you keep thinking); and although the Law of Attraction has been alluded to by some of the greatest teachers in history, it has never before been explained in as clear and practical terms as in this latest book by New York Times best-selling authors, Esther and Jerry Hicks.

       Learn here about the omnipresent Laws that govern this Universe and how to make them work to your advantage. The understanding that you’ll achieve by reading this book will take all the guesswork out of daily living. You’ll finally understand just about everything that’s happening in your own life as well as in the lives of those you’re interacting with. This book will help you to joyously be, do, or have anything that you desire!

4-0 out of 5 stars you should read this for it's practical wisdom if nothing else
I've been on a self-improvement/spirituality kick, and I just have to say that some of the ideas in this book have profoundly impacted me. Honestly, I have reservations about a lot of the metaphysical stuff that is presented. I find it hard to accept that you always get what you attract and nothing other than what you attract. I'm staying open to that idea, however. But regardless of your metaphysical leanings, there is great & simple wisdom here that anyone can benefit from. It has fundamentally changed the way I think about things and about what I want. It made me realize that I was thinking about things from a perspective of lack & scarcity & doubt, when I should be thinking about them from a perspective of abundance and certainty. The simple idea that whenever I am feeling negative about something, I am miscreating, and whenever I am feeling positive, I am creating correctly, is so ridiculously simple and obvious, that I find it astounding I didn't realize this already. This book has a few simply ideas that can potentially change your life. And you don't actually have to believe in the Law of Attraction or the other metaphysical ideas they present - either way, this book will show you how to be more positive and passionate about your life, and in the result, only better things will happen for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars this could chage your life
all the information that abraham hicks provides it's very good .the only part I found it annoying is when jerry advertise of the website andthe phone.i know where to go if I want to buy more of their products,however the entire program is very very good and I starting to manifest what i think of.people this is real ! try it!

4-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Read
A real eye-opening experience to be sure! If you've never considered the possibility of spiritual guides, this book will clarify the true nature of their existence and their desire to assist us in our incarnated state of being. A great and interesting story on the spiritual world and our connection to it.


5-0 out of 5 stars You have to approach this with an open mind, or not at all
I've skirted around the Abraham-Hicks material for quite some time now. On one hand, it is firmly rooted in the classic "thoughts are things" early 20th Century works such as Think and Grow Rich, Original 1937 Classic Edition, The Secret of the Ages, The Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel, The Science Of Getting Rich: The Original Guide to Manifesting Wealth Through the Secret Law of Attraction, and many others.

On the other, the concept of "Abraham, the group of non-physical teachers speaking through Esther" may be a little too "New Age" for some. Don't let that keep you from information that could change your life.

The key to all of these is the same...the issue isn't putting "The Law Of Attraction" into place. We're already doing that. The key is that we determine what we want and then focus on the lack of it, the fear that comes from not having enough money to pay the bills (or, as you'll hear in this recording, not having enough money to pay the bills AND enough money to do what we want after those bills are paid).

"We are the creator of our experience."

Part of the bad rap that follows "The Law Of Attraction" is the "name it and claim it" school of followers, who think that you just have to have happy thoughts and everything will be magically drawn to you like a magnet, with no effort on your part. That's not what "The Law Of Attraction" is about at all. It is about having clarity of vision, VERY strong desire, BELIEF that the vision and desire put the process in motion and that you are already on the way to achieving what you want...but THEN you go to WORK. You have to remain focused on what you want, you must want it above all else, but you don't sit idle and wait for it. You go to work in order to obtain it.

But if you labor in doubt and dwell on lack or succumb to fear regarding what will happen if you don't get what you want, you defeat the attitude and behavior that are critical for your obtaining it.

So if a person is expecting to listen to this recording and put forth no effort, they will be disappointed. The basic underlying message...visualizing things we haven't seen, allowing yourself to believe that you can have what you want, controlling your thoughts so that you do not attract or "magnetize" people, things, or situations that you do NOT want...

...Napoleon Hill (an others) tried to bring this message to the world decades ago, and some "got it," while others expressed their desires and immediately followed up with 100 self-defeating reasons why those desires could never possibly see the light of day.

To paraphrase Esther's remarks in the "Deliberate Creation" section, most people say "I want (whatever it is), BUT..," or feel frustration because what they want is slow in coming, so they focus on the slowness, so you begin to push it away.

The IRONY is that the MORE that you want it and can CONSISTENTLY hold on to this desire WHILE working toward obtaining it, the FASTER you will get what you want. If you want to know why its arrival seems slow, go look in the mirror.

If you can tame your mind...if you can approach this recording with an open mind...do it, and do it today. If not, it will be a waste of your time and money, you will "hear" the message I have outlined above but you won't "receive it" and put it into practice, and you'll look for ways to discredit what's being said.

4-0 out of 5 stars Taking full responsibility for our lives
For those who find "blame the victim" appalling and absurd this review is for you.If we have the power to create, to manifest, to bring about why wouldn't we somehow in an unconscious way bring on the negative too.I would probably use the word "responsibility" more than blame though.Nevertheless, this is a hard pill to swallow when we look at the abuses our society fosters, but all are lessons to get us to an enlighten state.Who else causes such pain?God?The Devil?Most likely if you are reading this book, which I have really just started, you are not a avid Christian relying solely on the Bible and what the preacher says.I do believe Karma (past actions based in the present life and previous lives) also plays a role on what happens to us.This Universal Law is omnipotent and ever present and we must awaken to it to take complete control or responsibility for our lives.If we are thinking that we only create what is good in our life than we are missing the significance of these teachings.Unfortunately or fortunately some lessons are harder to learn and work through.~Namaste ...

I take it for granted that no hearer of mine will misinterpret what I have to say as the language of cynicism. The law is the witness and external deposit of our moral life. Its history is the history of the moral development of the race. The practice of it, in spite of popular jests, tends to make good citizens and good men. When I emphasize the difference between law and morals I do so with reference to a single end, that of learning and understanding the law. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Rorschach Test of the Law: Great Gift for Anyone Going into Law
Note: Amazon has grouped together reviews of several different editions of this book; this review is for The Path of the Law (Little Books of Wisdom).

More than a century after it was written, this is still the most important essay about law ever written, in part because lawyers are still arguing over exactly what it means.People from all across the political spectrum have used it to buttress their ideological arguments, which to my NON-legally trained mind ought to constitute something of a warning.

Of course the most basic reason for this is that one of the axes Holmes has grinding here is a brief in favor of the school of thought known as legal pragmatism, the idea that law can (and SHOULD) be separated from logic, from history, and most important of all from morality.Up to a point this is simply unarguable; law (like almost anything else you can imagine) can always benefit from a good dose of businesslike pragmatism.The trouble comes when you take pragmatism too far, as you must when you are trying to justify replacing God with Darwin.There is an old joke among philosophers about how Pragmatism was rejected because it didn't work; there's a reason Social Darwinism so often ends in gulags and mass graves.The trouble is that while pragmatism makes for a good basic approach to law (or anything else for that matter), it is no substitute for basic principles.Morals free "survival of the fittest" results in life that is "nasty, brutish, and short" for those who don't measure up to being the "fittest".When "might makes right" is as "good" an approach to the law as any, when if there is no constitutional provision forbidding the government to do something (and the truly creative can find their way around this condition), the people, through their elected representatives, can do pretty much any damn fool thing they please, then the pragmatic approach to law can degenerate into processing people for the death camps more efficiently.

Note: One could complain that this book is available online for free.Well, yes, what part of in the public domain do you not understand?However, trying to get away with giving someone a printout as a gift will earn you the nickname of cheapskate.If all you want to do is read it yourself, then by all means stick to the free sites.However, if you are looking for a way to get through to someone else, you are better off buying a copy, and a solitary sawbuck for this sturdy pocket-sized reprint is going to be tough to beat.The chief virtue of it being online is your ability to read it first and make sure that this is the book you want to give before ordering it.

Note: Applewood Books has produced a nice looking inexpensive series of sturdy pocket-sized reprints of important American books, documents, speeches, pamphlets, and poems, the Little Books of Wisdom, uniform with this volume, that are ideal for gifting to doctors, lawyers, teachers, business professionals, and students of same: The Way to Wealth, George Washington's Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior in Company and Conversation, The Constitution of the United States of America, On the Art of Teaching, The Poems of Abraham Lincoln, The Bill of Rights with Writings That Formed Its Foundation, The Strenuous Life, The Constitution of the Confederate States of America, The Jefferson Bible: The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth, A Message to Garcia, A Declaration of Sentiments, Robert's Rules of Order, Good Citizenship, On Being Human, A Discourse Upon the Duties of a Physician, The Declaration of Independence with Short Biographies of Its Signers, Teamwork, Stick-To-Itiveness, Opportunity, & You, The Wants of Man, George Washington's Farewell Address, Universal Declaration of Human Rights, The Speech of Chief Seattle, Common Sense, The Articles of Confederation, The Emancipation Proclamation, and The Gospel of Wealth.

Some selected volumes are also available in boxed sets: Books of American Wisdom Boxed Set, CEO's Gift Box of Wisdom, Doctor's Gift Box of Wisdom, Lawyer's Gift Box of Wisdom, New Citizen's Gift Box of Wisdom, and Teacher's Gift Box of Wisdom.

And some have been published in Spanish: Un Mensaje a Garcia and Constitucion de Los Estados Unidos.

3-0 out of 5 stars Laws that aren't
I heard about this book through some friends and I've had it awhile. I just read it recently since I'm taking a marketing class in college. There are some contradictions in the book and to what I've learned in class.
Ex: The Law of Line Extension says not to extend a brand name to many products so as to not weaken the brand, whereas in class, the instructor and the textbook say that's not a bad idea, especially if you already have a good product with a good brand name, extend it so that consumers will associate the already existing brand name and that brand's attributes with a new product.
Also, the author predicted that Microsoft should stick to developing operating systems. At the time (~1994) Microsoft was venturing into word processing, database and spreadsheet programs. Microsoft was a low player in all those at the time and it would ultimately fail if it ventured into those new areas where other companies already dominated the market. Today, Microsoft Office, which includes all those programs, is the most successful in all those categories.
Even with the dated examples, a lot of which are wrong and do not apply today, I think the basic ideas aren't all that bad. Maybe with current examples, this would be a lot better book. Probably wouldn't be a bad idea for some small businesses to actually follow through with all the laws until it's well established, but the laws shouldn't be considered laws.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good read, light on specific takeaways
This book was well written with good examples (some a little dated).It's clear that these are well reasoned "laws" or marketing, but what it lacks is a concrete path on how to implement them into your business.

Also, I'm a small business owner and it's not exactly for me.I think it's better for someone working at a big firm with an awfully large budget.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Book
I have the audio CD and felt I needed it in a book format for safe keeping of the info.Very informative and I would suggest it to anyone trying to understand marketing.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Small Business Owners
I don't normally review books.But I feel "The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing" has provided me so much value that I would feel guilty if I did not speak up for it.

This is wonderful read for anyone who is in business but either does not have a marketing degree and/or cannot afford to hire marketing talent.

The book is very simple - but NOT simplistic. I have put the ideas in this book in marketing my business.

And I find the ideas of the book bridge very well into management and leadership practice with good results.

I recommend this to my clients as a "must-read".

Reflecting His grace and glory,

5-0 out of 5 stars I booked crim law (got the highest grade out of 60) with just this book
I didn't listen or take notes in class. I didn't do the readings.I didn't make an outline. Three days before the exam, I read this book cover-to-cover. It was quick, interesting, and it delved deep into the reasoning behind crim law, so that you not only get the black letter law and facts, but you get the big picture. I got the highest grade in my class from just spending time on this book. Enough said.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent in-depth coverage, helped with some tricky topics
The book is organized well and flows well even though it didn't match my casebook.Each main topic begins with an short overview, then it delves into history of the law, how various jurisdictions cover each sublaw, and the MPC's take on the law.The coverage was concise yet thorough with ample footnotes.

I would suggest looking supplements up in the law library and reading a few sections.I used Understanding when Emanuel Law Outlines: Criminal Law and my casebook Criminal Law: Cases and Materials didn't cover the topics well.I only began using Casenote Legal Briefs Criminal Law: Keyed to Kaplan Weisberg & Binder 6 Ed (Casenote Legal Briefs) near the end and really wished I had used it from the start.Emanuel just didn't cut it like the keyed versions, but Casenote and Understanding got me through.

I found Siegels Criminal Law: Essay Multiple Choice Question Answer 2009 (Siegel's Series) far more useful and wish I had used from the start.Also Acing Criminal Law was useful for brief info when outlining and working through outlines.The checklist/flowchart format is remarkably useful.

Thank you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great supplement!
I did very well in Criminal Law and I have to give huge amounts of credit to this book. I'm a big supplement studier, and I find that I usually need supplements to help me outline. I used this book to outline for the course as well as clear up confusing areas and things I wasn't 100% sure on. It really covers anything and everything you may need to know, and it does so in a clear, concise fashion. I LOVE this book and I have used other books in this "Understanding" series for other courses including Property and Evidence. I recommend it for every law student.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best!!!
Unless your prof's exam questions draw heavily from the E+E, like my prof did, this is the BEST crim law study aid out there. I used both it and the E+E and Dressler just had a way of explaining crim law that helped me much more than the E+E did. I am a firm believer in a lot of test prep, however, and would suggest that you get a study aid with practice questions or make sure your school has an old exam bank. This book is great, if not the best, at explaining crim law to you but it can't help you write your crim law essays better. Used in conjunction with other aids or materials, it's excellent though. ... Read more

We have all met highly successful people who just radiated charisma.There seemed to be some aura about them that attracted us to them, made us attracted to their cause or want to buy into their product or services.We often wonder what magic these people were blessed with.

While there is no doubt that some people are naturally more charismatic than others, there are some basic skills that we can learn and develop which will greatly improve our charisma.The more charisma you possess, the higher your potential for success.

In his book, The Laws of Charisma, Kurt Mortensen has identified thirty-five different qualities or traits which we can all improve on to increase our level of charisma.The traits are grouped into five sections:

Section one - Presence: What do you radiate?
Section two - Core Qualities: The inside dictates the outside
Section three - Delivery and communication: Speak with conviction
Section four - Empowering others: Contagious cooperation
Section five - Subconscious triggers: It just feels right - or wrong.

The chapters under each section follow a standard format.Each chapter gives a brief discussion of that particular trait.Then there is a discussion concerning how we have blind spots regarding that trait.Then the chapter concludes with the correct application, a specific example and a charisma key.There is a self-rating scale for you to determine your charisma score at the end of each chapter.

The book is well organized, well written and the chapters are very short.You can read this book cover to cover or you could use the table of contents to pick a topic that you feel you need to work on.

This is the type of book that you want to refer to often.You should score yourself on each subject and then periodically revisit that trait to evaluate your progress.

While some people have natural tendencies, most of us can and should improve our skills in these areas.It will make a real difference in the success you enjoy in business and life.

Read and implement the lessons in this book and you will greatly improve your charisma.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great read on charisma
I've read a lot on the topics of persuasion and influence.Very rarely does somebody address the topic of charisma at length...in this case the author focuses on it for a whole book!It's refreshing to learn that charisma can be developed and Mortensen shows you exactly how to do it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Charisma for the rest of us..
Kurt Mortensen has written a work book and guide to help all of us better understand, and use, influence in our lives or to become charismatic. I love the style as well as the content of this book. It's kind of like Aesop Fables meets NLP + Dale Carnegie. From the very first chapter I learned a concept that helped me captivate, inspire and influence others. Each chapter stars off with a story (Aesop like), features a blind spot, application of the skill or technique, a practical example, then what Kurt calls the charisma key followed by a self rating scale.

It's book for anybody that wants to hone their social or networking skills and in particular those in a job search or re-careering. It's a book I highly recommend.
