Today I shall review a book titled The Skinny On Success. It is a how to be successful kind of book. This book is suitable for all readers since every and each one of us would like to be successful one day. But how?

The description of The Skinny On Success from goodreads.com

In Jim Randels distinct and unique format of telling a story through skinny stick people, readers will see success in a new light as they learn the tools that will help them to become victorious or, if they want to flourish even more, how to take their dreams about achieving to the next level. The Skinny on Success will explain how to: Identify the three steps in the process that leads to success that triumphant people take.See the importance of passion, action, & persistence.Decide how big a role talent plays in becoming successful.
    Be inspired by the examples of Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, John Grisham, and others, who went from rejection after rejection to huge triumphs. Benefit from the author's synthesis of the key findings from illuminating books on success, including Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers, Daniel Coyne's the Talent Code, and others.

    If you haven’t guessed it yet, this book tells about the secrets steps behind people's  success. The book takes real life examples of successful people such as Stephen King and J.K. Rowling and reflects upon them. There are always similarities in successful people's life. You get to know these similarities by reading the book.

    My Opinion:

    The Skinny On Success was one of the most interesting book I had read in my entire life. It taught me to never give up on my goals. It taught me that throughout history successful people had a "failing period" at one point of their lives. The book taught me that it's not shamful to try again and again till you reach to your goal. Basically this book gives tips and advice to live with.

    As you know from my pervious reviews for The Skinny On series, the books are made in an uncomplicated way. You can finish the book in one hour and have the information stick in your brain for a lifetime.
    At the end of the book, it references many other books to expand our knowledge on how to be successful.  My goal is to finish this list they provided.

    I reviewed 3 other books related to the skinny on series. Check them out:
