This book appears to be a combination of other books by this author. While the title states this book is about self-improvement, the author does not make an overall introduction to tie these three unrelated books together. The subjects of the three books within this one are about thought models, emotional intelligence, and memory improvement. Overall, I'm not impressed with the quality of these books. Here is my review of one book in this collection.
Practical Thought Models for Men: Creepily Similar to Another Book
This book is creepily close to another one on thought models, Billionaire Thought Models by R. Stevens. Some ideas discussed in this book, like confirmation bias and framing, are the same exact topics discussed in the other book. Also, each has a beginning section relating a story from one particular person with the last name of Munger. Surely, there is more than just one person to highlight in the thought model topic than him! It just seems odd that these two books would have so many similarities. At least this book does reference more billionaires right in the chapter subheadings than the book with that in the title! I don't really see how this book is particular to men. Most of the ideas discussed seem gender-neutral.
I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
