Elevate: An Essential Guide to Life Reviews
First of all, thank you to BookishFirst for letting me read this book in advance. and thank you to the author for the awesome swag!
I have to admit I was a bit skeptical. Most self-help books provide good information, but seem to have their fair share of "crazy." Elevate is the first one that I have read cover to cover and never had a "here we go" moment. The only critic I have for this book is that I feel like the author could have went into more detail about actions and exercises that he sugges ...more
I feel like by stating that I have not been able to pick up a nugget of wisdom (just yet anyway) and elevate myself beyond my limitations, that I fall into the same group of people the book warns the reader against.
However, even though I have not learned anything new, I do think we can all sometimes use reminders of the important things such as being open and recognizing we all have our own personal biasis.
I liked the quotes that preceeded the chapters in the book that helped guide each chapter ...more
I won this book from Bookish in exchange for an honest review, thanks Bookish and thanks to the author! I really enjoyed reading this self help book and found it to be very useful, enlightening, and full of a lot of great information as well as personal stories from the author. This book is meant to Elevate your thinking, which will, in turn, elevate your life. Elevate provides a lot of good advice and practical ways to elevate your life and implement them into your life. It took me a little lon ...more
Like many of the other reviewers, I am a self professed self help junkie. It is a genre I am drawn to and have read and re-read the master works, as well as some of the books by people just repeating a few short concepts, while trying to make a few bucks simply.
Joseph Deitsch's lengthy and complete work goes among the former, masterful, works. His ideas are well researched and well presented. He addresses not only actions to undertake but mindset and the WHY behind the process.
Most people will ...more
Look past the bland cover and nondescript title, and you’ll see that this is not a run-of-the-mill self-help book. In an engagingly casual, encouraging voice, Deitch, a leading financial planner with a well-informed interest in personal growth (he also won a Tony Award for co-producing “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess” on Broadway), provides a “roadmap” of shortcuts to leading a fulfilling life. Like any good teacher, the author draws from years of his own experience and others’ wisdom to speed up ...more
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
*Disclaimer* This is the first self help book I have read and therefore I am not by any means an expert on them. That being said, I found Elevate to be very well written and the concepts easy to understand and follow.
Three things that make Elevate stand out: 1. Foreword by Lisa Genova endorsing this book (This is very minor in the grand scheme of Elevate, however Lisa is one of my favorite authors and knowing that she gave it a thumbs up m ...more
The writing is not difficult to understand. I almost made the mistake of thinking that it would be one of those books that utilized a quite terrifying range of vocabulary and I would end up not understanding it, but that was not the case here. This is an interesting approach to how we might be able to behave in a way that would benefit us.
Everyone needs a good self-help book once in a while to lift up their spirits. You have to go back into the book and keep reading because it is just that good. ...more
I'm so happy I won a raffle for this one. I probably wouldn't have known what this book was about or that even existed without the help of BookishFirst. As a studying Clinical Mental Health Counselor I found so much valuable information in the pages of this book. I really enjoyed the flow and how everything, even if I wasn't a student of psychology, could be read and understood by anyone. It was an uplifting, educational book and I would definitely recommend to fellow learners, friends, family ...more
