I’m a pretty negative thinker, and I don’t necessarily like admitting that. I don’t really like this about myself, and I know I cause unnecessary stress by thinking negatively. The introduction was simple and gives the reader a great peek at what this book is about, and how to use the book in your own life. This grabbed me pretty quickly, and I ended up reading it in one sitting. But as Mr. Ripley states in Chapter 1, this book isn’t meant to be read and put aside, forgotten. It’s meant to help create habits of positive thinking, and be reflected on often. It’s less than 100 pages long, so it was easy to read it cover to cover, and easy enough to reference back on every so often to help lock in the habits. At least for the next couple of months, which is about how long Ripley says habits are formed. I enjoyed this book, and will be using this book as a tool in the future. 5/5.
