posted on Amazon.co.uk, I gave this summary Three Stars. This means it is Worthwhile.
Here is my review.
Not the place to start with Jay Abraham
I’m a very big fan of Jay Abraham ‘s ideas for developing a business and I help business owners who are stuck, get unstuck.
I should love the full book (The Sticking Point Solution) and this summary but I don’t. Perhaps part of the problem is that my expectations are sky high and it’s tough to match, let alone exceed them.
The other problem is that I don’t feel this book is well conceived or well executed. It has the feel of a book hurried out to meet a publishing deal. There’s too much crossover between the identified sticking points and that means the solutions merge into each other. It also rehashes old Abraham concepts rather than introducing much new insight.
Many of the best ideas from Jay Abraham ‘s extraordinarily careers have been borrowed by those of us who follow, often without proper credit back to this author. If you’re a business owner or entrepreneur, you need to be familiar with the main concepts but it’s much better to start with Getting Everything You Can Out of All You’ve Got: 21 Ways You Can Out-Think, Out-Perform, and Out-Earn the Competition.
I’m sorry but I thought the full book was dull but I thought I’d try through summary version in case I’d missed something. This is also dull. The ideas are valid but they’ve been expressed much better elsewhere.
