I discovered this book at the back-end of my reading queue, and since I’m trying to catch up on my reviews I will periodically choose the oldest books in my ARC library to read and review.
Change Your World in 71 Days. By Tom Connellan.
I had two immediate reactions while reading this. The first was “Duh” as in of course this is pretty obvious. Most of us know that we would be better served to increase/decrease incrementally rather than trying to make a big change all at once. And my second reaction was, “Where’s the rest of the book?” The concept is easily explained in a paragraph and the rest of the 150+ pages is spent giving examples of the concept.
This sort of self-help book drives me crazy. I’ve seen it with writing books, diet books, finance books. Someone’s got a ‘great’ idea but when they actually try to explain it, they simply repeat the same thing over and over.
To make it worse, Connellan writes down to the reader, as if we weren’t very bright to begin with.
I’m all for improving one’s self, but I’m definitely not going to be doing it by reading this book.
Looking for a good book? Change Your World in 71 Days by Tom Connellan is a self-help book with a simple concept and a simpler address of the ‘how-to.’
I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
