Overall Review:  

Fantastic!  A self-help genre that reads like a novel!  This book tells a story about a man named Ken who wants to change his life.  He notices a friend who seems, well, different, and asks him about it.  This begins his journey learning about the One Percent Solution.  I loved the way this was presented.  The information is accessible and useful for everyone.  Being presented in a conversation style, everything was easy to absorb and thus apply.  You could see how this could really work.  It was informative, motivational, and, funnily enough, a page turner!  I was not only curious about the solution itself, but I enjoyed reading about the different characters.  I loved that each chapter didn’t give you some new random overload of information, but instead built upon principles that had already been presented; and it was such a simple, common sense approach!  Tom Connellan has written an amazing book that is not only fun to read, but is user friendly with highlighted main points and italicized helps throughout.  These do not deter from the story itself, but make for easy reference points later.  The 1% Solution is a book that I can and will refer back to over and over.


Content Analysis:  

This book is super clean!  Even being in novel format, there was no language (there was one minor swear word near the end), violence or sex.  The information is so easy to understand and use, I would recommend this for all ages.  Even 12 year olds who want to get an edge would seriously benefit from this.
