About the Reviews

This was a great read. In summary it really helped me to do something that I've struggled with for years. It helped me to develop a plan to make improvements in my life. I've read many works on personal development but I've never been able to fully implement ideas or methods. I think I've always been looking for that big Ah-Hah moment where I could flip a switch and become more productive, more creative, more strategic, more of everything that I think I need to be to become more successful. The Compound Effect made me realize that I was not only on the wrong path, but I was stuck in the mud on that path. It's simple, small incremental changes lead to exponential results. Read this book and apply the principles that Darren lays out. It's changing my life and I hope it helps you as well.

*********************************

Okay, so you need to know that I have been a serial self-help book junkie! I was hopeless! This was the first self-help book that "cured" me and helped me see the light, so to speak (the other one, read about the same time, The Slight Edge, is also EXCELLENT; it has the same message, and further reinforced my cure)! I had been looking for the magic fix! Of course, there is no such thing! This book helped me see that! But it provides a real and powerful approach to improving one's life! Spoiler alert: you have to put in the effort! And it works sort of like this: slowly, slowly, slowly, . . . SUDDENLY! You'll have to read the book to understand. I HIGHLY recommend this book!

*********************************

I did a 5-minute video review of this book on my YouTube show "Always Better Challenge Show".

The main premise of this book is the idea that slow and steady wins the race. It is very helpful the way Darren reminds us that even ridiculously small changes can, if applied CONSISTENTLY, produce huge effects over time. He also reminds us of the power in taking responsibility for our own actions, and that if we want to "manage" something, we must first "measure" it. I also love the idea of putting success on "autopilot" through establishing good habits.

There are a million books out there in this space. I should know, I've read most of them! But this is one of a handful that I think belongs on everyone's bookshelf, at least everyone who is interested in personal development and improvement. You can't go wrong with this one.
