Responses from Recommending PDSP?
I shared PDSP with maybe 5 people.
One of them read half the book and stopped, citing that it was useful but the English was too difficult (not first language). More likely he didn't find it useful.
Another waited a few months before starting to read it (don't know her level of understanding because she just told me a few weeks ago)
Another read a few paragraphs and felt that it was wonderful, though I highly doubt her comprehension.
Another was a Master grad of business and found it too complicated, preferring stories over "so much theory".
Too complicated? Which part?
Anyways, good or bad, maybe we can discuss what other people think about the concept of Truth, Love and Power to get an outside, probably flawed angle on it. And somehow turn it into something useful.

This is a valid question and concern. ^^, Thread starter, why don't you ask your friends what they found hard to believe and post it here so that the administrator or other forum members can share their insight and make things clear.

The information quality and insights was 10/10, the delivery was about a 7, but one thing I would have liked is stories about other people, but it would be hard getting it since it since this is the first tiem a method like this is being put out there.
I also recommend carol dweck for people whom its their first intro to steve pavlina.

I had my boyfriend read it, and he read about half before starting to speed read it. I don't think it was too complicated for him, since he's a smart guy. He's just not into personal development, at least not as much as I am.
He said he thought the ideas were good, but that he could get most of the content from really old texts written by philosophers years gone by. He is Chinese and has read a lot of traditional Chinese texts.
I really enjoyed the book, and it helps that I've been reading Steve's blog for awhile right?
