While your motivation can be appreciated, I'm a bit questionable 'bout your source - especially that quote
I've never found any
of the acronym books to be particularly helpful - except to the author's bank account, of course
. If you think about it - really think! - you, or most anyone you know, could write such a book. All it takes is a concept and a bit of creativity - and not all that much creativity. Most of the major religious texts send the same message, in one form or another.
Admittedly, I'm a fan of Earl Nightingale (sp?), but for the most part, he reiterated the teachings of those gone before. And the likes of Anthony (Tony) Robbins to Zig Ziglar, simply reiterate truths already told. I'd deem most of the how to accomplish
authors to be in that A-Z list. No preached methodology is appropriate to all, sometimes not even to the author - that person is selling the methodology, not necessarily living it.
That said, a number of folk do get value from such teachings, mostly from thoughts previously unthunk, thus being inspirational - in that light they can even be mind expanding.
Oh, yeah, methinks the Mario Andretti
interior quote was taken slightly out of context.
