Latest Review: Dynomike: Pay It Forward by Frankie B. Rabbit

This book must be packed with wisdom. Because it makes a "not-so-common" sense that nothing is ugly and beauty is subjective. It'd be good, as well, to take an in depth look at the author's view on other life matters expressed here.

Whenever someone mentioned the name 'teacher' the first thing that came to my mind was a classroom and I have just realised that teacher is anyone or a situation that will have influence in your life. Basically everything that can change the way of your thinking is your teacher. Great book meaningful content a teacher itself.

Sounds like a book with some good insight. Timely too, given that it encourages logical reasoning in a world that thinks with its feelings.

The book sounds as if it could be a great read for some basic knowledge. It's disappointing that overall it's been reviewed to lack a sense of originality.
Great review and congratulations on BOTD.

Your review is very detailed. I wonder why a book on 'Wisdom' would forfeit the wisdom of effective proofreading... I'll leave it at that. Glad there were areas to be linked and enjoyed...

This book would have been one of the best non frictional novel, but the fact that it has much corrections to make. I will skip it until the corrections are effected. I hope the author will make the necessary corrections. Thanks for your review.

Self-help books is probably my least favorite genre. Considering the poor editing, I'll definitely pass this one.
Thank you for the insightful review.

Latest Review: Creating Literary Stories: A Fiction Writer's Guide by William H. Coles

Post by dragonet07 »

I’m not really looking for a self-help kind of book right now, especially if it turn out to be not be original when compared to other similar texts. I think that I might have to pass on this one, although I’ll keep it in mind just in case I get some spare time on my hands. Thank you for the helpful review.

I agree with a lot of these observations just from the sample. Further, it reads like a report, which is not a bad thing, but it tended towards being preachy.

It seems like quite an insightful read with the author's perspective on life issues. I also like that it is rationally sound. Will sample it to see if it's worth a read. Thank you for the detailed review!!

I don't usually read self help books but this seems like an easy and wonderful read. However I don't think I'll read it until it has been edited.

Thank you for an informative review. I have to say from the relatively short abstract on Amazon, I couldn't really form an opinion on the book. I do like self-help books but judging from your review I don't think I will be adding this one to my bookshelf. Nevertheless, congratulations to the author on BOTD!
