Book Review - The Power of Focus

About the Book
The mega-blockbuster Power of Focus (HCI) has been updated with new strategies for maintaining focus in the most turbulent of times and released in a special 10th Anniversary Edition. More than 600,000 people around the world have been captivated by the simple, practical, and profound strategies contained in the original bestseller; now a decade later, authors Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, and Les Hewitt have created a new edition of this enduring classic. Now more than ever, the ability to focus is vital.

Les Hewitt and his co-authors have taken their bestseller and expanded upon it, including a personal look at the last ten years through their experienced eyes. Inspirational stories from ordinary people who have implemented The Power of Focus have been added to make an engaging read. Readers will also find insights on where to sharpen their focus, how to capitalize on the new currency in business, and a Reality Check questionnaire.

“True success in life is based on results, not theories,” co-author Les Hewitt says. “Specific focused action is a lot more important than words." To make following through with focused action even easier, a free comprehensive workbook is included, containing simple Action Steps to maximize The Power of Focus in business and personal life.

The three authors have national name recognition, appearing on Oprah, CNN and Eye to Eye and featured in national magazines and newspapers including Entrepreneur, Success, Time and U.S. News & World Report. They are highly sought-after trainers and speakers who lead frequent keynotes and consult for multinational clients including AT&T, Campbell's Soup, Johnson & Johnson, and Re/Max.

My Take on the Book
There are so many great ideas in the book that the authors have shared in the pages of this book. The book gives you some great ideas about setting goals for yourself. While it is hard to put this into action at times, this book makes it easier than most books that I have read in the past to do this. There are so many ideas about what one can do to get their life on track and get back to the things that matter most. I loved how practical this book was and how easy it was to implement the strategies in the book. So no matter how hard making these changes may be, the ideas and strategies in this book are ones that anyone can pick up and make happen!
