A must read, and something I will be recommending to my clients!

I managed to make my way half way through the book before I stopped reading and deleted it from my kindle library, absolute infuriated.
The main premise of the book is that we are are all currently suffering with the upper limit problem, in that however well our lives seem to be going, we will always find some conflict to sabotage how good things are, be that in work, relationships.... And even illness.
Yes, illness. Apparently illness is a mindset.
If all of this sounds a bit strange, imagine how you would feel if you'd read the thing.
At present, I'm a 30 something healthy male, but if I'd been born with a long term illness, reading this book would have sent me into a frenzy. The way the author states how you can overcome illness by just believing and reconditioning your brain into a positive mindset is just brainless. Anybody with a long term illness who decides to pick up this book, consider yourselves pre-warned.
One of my favourite passages was how he describes the war in the middle East between Muslims and Jews can be overcome with them both accepting that they are 100% the problem. So there you have it, 600 years of war solved in a sentence. Yes I understand those fundamentals may be correct, but the authors patronising tone just suggests it's a simple solution.
At this point, the more I read, the more the words on the page just sounded completely patronising. The guy cant stop preaching about he has overcome his upper limit problem and how his life is now a bundle of joy... This includes never arguing with his wife, and the ability to never catch a cold.
Probably one of the worst books I've ever read. If you're looking for positive books I recommend Tony Robbins' "Awaken the Giant Within' or "the 7 Habits of Highly effective people" by Stephen Covey instead, books where you won't come away feeling like you've just wasted a few hours of your life.
PS I was quite harsh giving it one star, as I like Branden's teachings so much that I gave it an extra star for spreading Branden's teachings and expanding on them.
Apart from that, the author comes across as arrogant. Makes continuous references to successful people that he has worked with, it gets really annoying after a while.
I am already putting some of the suggestions with positive results and hope to see more. It's definitely worth a read in my opinion
I am now keen to read some of Hendricks' other books
Simply life changing - and very easy to read too.
