Giving You the Wow and the How

Sharmen Lane
Giving You the Wow and the How is written by a woman who has been where you might be right now.  Sharmen Lane not only shares her story of success and how to achieve great things, because she has personally done it, but also she gives you the simple tools to do it yourself and shows you how to use them.  If you want to change your life, if you want to go from now to wow, Sharmen Lane will show you the how.  She personally went from being a high school dropout manicurist, to a millionaire and college graduate by using the tools, tips and strategies she shares with you in this step by step inspirational book.  Sharmen Lane gives you the wow and the how, starting right now!

My Take: 

Giving You the Wow and the How is one of the more entertaining Self Help books I've read.  The themes and ideas discussed in the book are very much the same as other books of the same genre.  Find out what you love to do, knock out negativity, write down your goals, etc.  What sets this book apart, however, is the readability of the book.  The author is a good story teller, and accompanies all of her tips with applicable and interesting stories from her own life experience.  She has a lot of passion for the message she is trying to convey, and you can definitely see her passion come through the book.  This is a great book for people who have found themselves in a rut and just need a little motivation.  This book is filled with practical exorcises that help bolster a person's drive.  One of the qualities I most enjoyed, was how unpretentious the author was.  So many Self Help authors are painfully uppity that I can't bear to read their books.  Sharmen Lane is just regular woman who worked hard and found a way to achieve success, she isn't looking to spout off about how great she is for all of her accomplishments.  If you aren't a Self Help fan, this book probably won't convert you, but if you are looking for something to kick your behind and get you moving, this is one to check out!  As far as Self Help books go, this is one of the better ones, and as such I am giving it a rating of 2, Borders with a Coupon
