Martin's readers are really ready for this one. His earlier books on self development each approach the topic from a different vantage point - meaning that they are wonderful for getting really specific about the area of self-development you need to address. This one, however is just the opposite, but in the best of ways, and at the time when it was about time for his long-term readers.
This book impressed me because it is the sort of thing I love to keep by my pillow and read an excerpt from upon waking - one each day. But honestly, each day's entry is so good you will find your self reading ahead constantly. I love that each part starts with words of wisdom from history's greatest. I recognized many of the quotes and this gave me a sense of familiarity with the content - but at the same time there are quotes I have never read before, keeping the book both familiar and fresh at the same time.
This book is a great gift for anyone you know who is genuinely into improving themselves as there is so much truth and wisdom collated in its pages, in such a sincere and valuable way.
