Although James J. Mapes’s self-help book is stronger than average and includes some colorful stories from the author’s life, it offers essentially predictable advice. Mapes uses the physics metaphor of quantum mechanics creatively, to show how you can make major life improvements, freeing yourself from the fear and inertia that may have held you back in the past. An actor, clinical hypnotist and corporate speaker, Mapes also includes a valuable section on how to encourage better teamwork. The material on visualization is strong, and getAbstract.com recommends the volume to both self-help devotees and newcomers.
