I've always thought that motivational or self help books are only effective when the reader is receptive to what the writer has written. You can read the best book in the market on any subject but if you're not in the right place or frame of mind to accept the message, it might have little or no impact on you. Why do I like this book so much? For that exact reason. I've been writing for years and understand most of the challenges Jeff identifies in this book. Sometimes all you need is for someone to tell you it's okay to be worried about your position in the writing world but that the only way to change your situation is by taking (or continuing) action. It's that simple!
