This was a wonderful book! You can really tell the author(s) put a ton of time and thought into it! – David
I’m not a fan of your typical “self-help” book, I find them to be too self-righteous without adding much value to the reader. This book was different. It focused on critical thinking through storytelling, which made the book much more enjoyable and easy to read (there’s also some decent humor sprinkled throughout the book). I think I actually read it start to finish in less than a week – and that’s saying something for me! It doesn’t build a stereotypical roadmap to success, but rather encourages you to consider what success means to you, and why. Definitely worth checking out if you’re interested in contemplating why you think the way you do, and the impact it has on your personal and professional relationships. I look forward to the next edition in the series! – Braden
I started “Individual Advantages” last Wednesday. I was moved enough by its lessons/ messages along with Dr. Smith’s personal anecdotes in support of each that I am NOW on a more introspective second reading… “Stories do indeed sell” and while I’d rate “Individual Advantages” highly without them, the anecdotes serve to humanize Dr. Smith, and accordingly, also “prime the pump” as it were to take, again, a more introspective look into my own life respective of the messaging… THAT is the true magic of his format. The first lesson, “SLOW DOWN” is critical to all that follows for Dr. Smith is not preaching from up on high; but rather from deep within and that, to borrow from Robert Frost, has made all the difference. I’d strongly encourage All to get “Individual Advantages” today and read it in your own quiet space so that your Foundation is solid for Dr. Smith’s next book in the series due to be released in Spring of ‘19. – Keith D.
