Your Best Life: Tactics, Tools and Insights to Create a Life of Fulfillment, Joy and Abundance by Mike X is a different kind of self-help book. Chapter titles include You Are the Master of Your Mind, Ten Magic Words to Heal Any Relationship, How to Make Every Day a Great Day, and 27 more. The author goes for what he describes as “breadth instead of depth.” That means that he doesn’t delve too deeply into any one idea but writes about many different concepts. The book is written in a light, breezy style and contains much white space. It also addresses readers directly, using the words “you” or “your” more than 2,500 times. The author has worked in many different fields during his life, including as a TV director, a marketing consultant, a research scientist, and more. This variety of careers gives him good insight into the human condition. However, readers need to be aware that there is considerable profanity in the book.
Everyone needs to read this book. Your Best Life is full of superb advice. Its information is powerful and has the potential to change lives. Some of the recommendations are clichés, but that’s fine. There’s a reason that certain advice gets repeated so often - it works. The author, who goes by the pen name Mike X, asks a lot of wise questions, encouraging readers to look at their own lives and attitudes. For example, after giving his definition of success he asks readers what their definition is. Unlike some self-help books, which can be difficult to slog through, this book is fun to read. That’s because of a combination of its excellent suggestions, the writing style, and the numerous photos, drawings, and other graphics. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
