Good. Don't forget the classics, though!

Ray has encapsulated a TON of content from James Allen, Napoleon Hill, Wallace Wattles and others to give us a great "cliff notes" version of the important foundation of success....our beliefs. His succinct and direct approach to the timeless wisdom that was more eloquently shared in James Allen classic "As a Man Thinketh" is dead on correct.
I am currently re-reading Think and Grow Rich for the 5th (or is it the sixth) time and personally, I love the original content with its early 20th century prose. This classic seamlessly compliments James Allen's books and between the two, reading them becomes a desire for rich stories (Think and Grow Rich) or golden nuggets of wisdom (As a Man Thinketh). For an even headier read, try Wallace Wattles, "Science of Success."
What Ray had done with his book is a great integration of classic success literature. Brief and to the point, you'll understand that techniques are irrelevant to what you truly belief and act upon. His 21st century examples and stories may be more relatable to many readers.
In summary, I enjoyed this book and I am sure you will also. Just don't ignore the classics. For they are the foundation for all the thought-based success books we enjoy today. The benefit of reading classic literature is that not only are there no modern day filters on the content, but you will feel transported back to in time. By doing so, you'll galvanize the social proof that Ray is talking about. This isn't just a re-tread of the "Law of Attraction," but a complete mindset blueprint and suite of tools for creating the lifestyle you truly desire.
