A Motivational Book on How to Create Yourself, July
Daniel Milstein's rags to riches story is
fascinating and he seems to be one of the most determined
individuals I've ever read about. In this well-designed book he
has a wealth of information to share.
If well-meaning people have told you your dreams are impossible,
Daniel Milstein has the opposite opinion. Through telling you
stories about many individuals who made it big, he sets the
stage for your own story to unfold. This motivational book has
great examples of super successful individuals who took charge
of their own lives.
One quote I really like is by the author and says: “Life
begins at the end of your comfort zone.” This is so true. I
also had to smile at the quote: “Hard work puts you in a place
where good luck can find you.”
This is one of those books where you want to highlight something
on each page. There are so many witty quips and lol funny
moments. So this book not only gives you hard-earned wisdom it
is also enjoyable to read.
This book could not have come into my life at a better time. Now
I'm willing to follow the advice. I believe the author is right
when he says you may have to sacrifice something in your life to
follow your dreams.
So let the message of this book captivate you and take the
principles to heart. Books like this are game changers. If you
are serious about being successful you can't go wrong taking
this author's advice.

He also was given a lot of good advice on his initial manuscript
which makes the book very polished and easy to read. His editor
must be highly talented! I've rarely seen a book written this
What is especially intriguing about this book is the way the
information is presented. Mostly stories are told about famous
companies and how they reached a place of ultimate success. You
will learn about Nike, IBM, Mercedes, Pixar, Target, Netflix,
Harley-Davidson, Spalding, Smith and Hawken, Microsoft, Kodak
and OXO. The story about OXO Good Grips was especially
interesting to me as I love to cook and have several of the
items they sell. I especially love the lemon zester and peeler.
Some of the stories in this book also explain how some companies
don't get it. There are mistakes being made that could be
corrected with the right philosophy.
Dev Patnaik drives home the point that you should see the world
the way your customers do. Therefore you can serve them better
and keep them loyal. This book makes you say: "Yay, finally
someone is saying what needs to be said."
I felt the writing style in this book was very fluid and easy to
comprehend and process. You will learn so many valuable things
about life. It helps you understand how life really works. I
enjoyed reading the sections on reciprocal altruism and open
