3) Creative Contributions – How much of the information is fresh, giving the readers a new perspective? Or is the content rehashed or simply hard to digest? I enjoy fresh thoughts, new ideas, new paradigms of the world.
+ Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad Poor Dad” series has provided the world with a whole new view of the way we view our money and investments. I solute Kiyosaki for stepping out of bounds and introducing us to a world many of us didn’t know existed. Eckart Tolle, author of “the Power of Now” has also introduced readers to a new level of spirituality and understanding about the evolution of humanity. Both are examples of pioneers in thought, providing their readers with, not just new ideas, but new paradigms of the world.
-- Brian Tracy has about a hundred different books and audio programs, but they’re pretty much the same thing it seems. Most of his ideas are simply copy-and-pastes from others who’ve gone before him. Easy to digest, sure. But completely unoriginal. Lots of scattered ideas, yes; most of which contradict other ideas he puts forth. A cohesive, integrated or original philosophy or paradigm? Not even close.
