Elevate: An Essential Guide to Life Reviews
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
Elevate is definitely not one of those books that can be stopped and started often; you have to devote time to reading it through at least once, then go back and reread each section with the purpose of taking notes!
Author Joseph Deitch catches the reader's attention with honest truths without being too wordy. For example, in Part One (Awareness) Deitch writes, "true attention entails looking, listening, and learning without prejudice." Without prejudice. Sounds simple, but try paying attention ...more
Elevate is a book worth a second read. It’s written in an engaging narrative, author’s personal examples are provided, and the structure makes it easy to follow advice and progress.
This book provides concepts and follows those concepts with steps and advice.
There are some self help books which are wordy but without meaning or practicality. Elevate is not one of those books. The realizations provided by Deitch are relateble and worthy of assisting the reader in not changing, but elevating.

I received this book from the publisher via BookishFirst in exchange for my honest review. -- I am a sucker for a good self-help or motivational book. My collection started when I was doing my undergrad and my college had a slight obsession with adding them to the curriculum of all the business classes. That being said, I need a book that is easy to understand, relatable and has the capacity to bring me some real-life applications. This book does that and then some. The format of the book is eas ...more
I won this book from Bookish in exchange for my honest opinion.
Ok, so I'm one of those people. I listen to motivational videos, hype songs, and speeches. My bookshelves are full of books to help me grow as a person. I'm always looking for a new way to look at an old concept. Elevate is a perfect addition to my collection. The writing is clear and precise, the author is easy to understand and relate to, and he reminds you of those things you already wanted to change in the first place.
This book ...more
Elevate is a self-help book unlike any you may have read before, with a genuine push towards personal growth and development. You can tell from the first paragraph that Joseph Deitch has put a lot of time and thought into every sentence, really crafting a voice that sounds confident in the knowledge he shares but also like a friend who is excited about what they've learned and longs to share it with you. I'm often put off by the air of superiority that comes from many self-help authors and the c ...more
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
