Very, very good book. It's written by someone who really loves what he does and who does it because it's a game. It shines through in this book. The author notes that there are as many different approaches as there are investors, but he gives an overview that can be applied to most if not all.

Great book.

I am deep into the book - I grab it and read every second I can spare. Well paced, very interesting data on a very interesting subject. I got interested because my brother carries one... so, watch out for that light trigger man! Keep your finger off the trigger!

I have to be honest - the book covers a very, very important subject - but it bored me. I am victim of having read so, so many books on this type of subject (good thing) that I get extra picky (not necessarily a good thing). I read into it, and put it down, which I rarely do. So, this isn't a rant against the book. Nor anything against the author, just didn't thrill me... is that wrong? Nope, just me!

The strings are excellent - the best upgrade one can do for a guitar. They are bright and don't require a lot of stretching to settle out and stay in tune. Good stuff.

I have read a ton of books on similar subjects and while I am not being critical of Janet's information, it just didn't hold my attention. It was rehashed for me - but for someone unfamiliar with the models and methods here, the book can be very good. It's just that I have covered this trail many times and this wasn't especially insightful for me. Reading the same info from different angles is very smart I think - repeating key basic data from different sources is a very good way to drive in the data and get it into use - but this one didn't thrill me.

I didn't read it past a few chapters.

Well written, a bit off key and pleasantly so. Pressfield definitely practiced what he preaches in his book. I read it almost in one sitting and found it insightful and very cool. Highly recommended.

Frankly, the computer is just fine - Window's 8 sucks. It is difficult to navigate and the built in "interruption marketing" (ads that randomly pop up and talk to you when you least expect it) if unnerving and unwanted. It's just another way to make more money - and I don't blame advertisers at all - they are paying to advertise. I personally think that Microsoft is not really game to provide a great user experience.

I bought this computer for my wife - as she didn't need an expensive macbook pro like I do. I use my computer for my work and I have a souped up apple laptop (which I bought after using Windows, which could not handle what I put it through) - but in seeing the frustration that she has with the very annoying pop up ads, I am going to junk this thing soon and get her an apple computer - just because one can log on and just do what you have to do. Windows 8 prevents that. Apple Macbooks just work. No B.S.

I'd pay the extra money for a simple, clean user interface that my wife can just do what she's got to do and not have to see her have to stop what she is doing, try to locate this pesky ads that come from nowhere and shut them off. Or have to go buy an upgrade to get a computer that just works. Its supposed to work right? This one doesn't. The software is a pain in the butt.

I think HP should rethink it's software. Get something that works - paying for a computer that then has to be upgraded to work properly is not a good partnership. Microsoft would do well to provide something that works.

The book kept me on the edge of my chair and flowed very smoothly as a read. The research was excellent and revealed the fact that food industry executives pretty uniformly didn't eat their own products, because of the ill effects they had on their bodies. So, one can simple see that even they know.

The other point is the rationalization that is made when profit is at stake - "that's what the people want." It's just about as bad as intentionally hooking a drug addict with a habit and saying that's what they want - it's quite close to the same argument. The intense "science" that goes into hooking the population, the relish that major food company execs have for "heavy users" was amazing to see.

What this book points out to me is that the overall model of society is a bit off. That may be an understatement. The fact that any company pushing so hard on products that are so bad is just at cross purposes with the overall survival of the human race - if you really look at it. What's good for them is bad for us is not a correct scenario by any stretch of the imagination.

So, really what I see is that the entire social model needs to be rethought, and we as a race of people, across the entire planet have to align our efforts toward survival of us all. And don't say it can't be done - anything we can conceive we can very definitely create - but it will take a brush with death (unfortunately and that's my cold, hard opinion. I am very willing to be wrong on it...) to get the entire race to team up and look at this as a team.

So, the deeper implications of this book stare us in the face if we care to look. The paradigm must shift and non confront is just not going to work if we are to survive as more that just force fed droids. I suggest every American read this book and start to get real. Being a junkie just doesn't work if you want to be more than a blob in front of pre-fabricated entertainment, pre-fabricated food and a world where we are hooked in every one of our 5 senses by someone - just to rake in profits.

It isn't working. We need to get real and look at what we have around us and deal with it. If everyone read this book - we could change it in a year, by simply voting with out wallets. If we really want to shorten out lifespans, and die horrible deaths of very easily preventable diseases, we are nuts. But you and I know better - fully informed people will make sensible decisions. Period.

Good book - but it's not necessarily stand alone - one would do well to follow the advice given in the book - "Reading the Horse Owners Guide to Natural Hoof Care is a prerequisite to learning anything from this book." That book is by Jamie Jackson.

I didn't read it first and I find this book slightly over my head. It's a good book, but I do recommend reading the above first before getting into this one. I just consulted youtube videos on the subject and started with those and this book to trim my horse's hooves.

A bit tough to read - but very key concepts inside. I found it very worth reading but the writer's flow was a bit tricky for me. Not riveting, but valuable.
