Elevate: An Essential Guide to Life Reviews
Like many of the other reviewers, I am a self professed self help junkie. It is a genre I am drawn to and have read and re-read the master works, as well as some of the books by people just repeating a few short concepts, while trying to make a few bucks simply.
Joseph Deitsch's lengthy and complete work goes among the former, masterful, works. His ideas are well researched and well presented. He addresses not only actions to undertake but mindset and the WHY behind the process.

I really appreciated the way the author has organized the accumulated wisdom in this book. As he says, "It's not my wisdom, it's our wisdom." He's collected and organized wisdom from both Eastern and Western philosophies into a very readable and logical format, with two parts. The first part is "Awareness" and is about cultivating awareness for improving your life. The second part, equally important, is "Action". The author compares it to the Eastern concept of yin and yang, both are ...more
Elevate is a book worth a second read. It’s written in an engaging narrative, author’s personal examples are provided, and the structure makes it easy to follow advice and progress.
This book provides concepts and follows those concepts with steps and advice.
There are some self help books which are wordy but without meaning or practicality. Elevate is not one of those books. The realizations provided by Deitch are relateble and worthy of assisting the reader in not changing, but elevating.
I won this book from Bookish in exchange for an honest review, thanks Bookish and thanks to the author!

I received this book from the publisher via BookishFirst in exchange for my honest review. -- I am a sucker for a good self-help or motivational book. My collection started when I was doing my undergrad and my college had a slight obsession with adding them to the curriculum of all the business classes. That being said, I need a book that is easy to understand, relatable and has the capacity to bring me some real-life applications. This book does that and then some. The format of the book is eas ...more
This is a great book filled with so much insight and many powerful messages across each page. How you face your day truly and any upcoming battles is really about your perspective and I loved how every section was spearheaded with inspirational quotes to set the mood. It makes you think and reflect on your own life and how you can apply the advice to your own. And like another reviewer on Amazon had noted, it’s not a book where you can stop-and-go stop-and-go. It really makes you keep the pages ...more
First of all, thank you to BookishFirst for letting me read this book in advance. and thank you to the author for the awesome swag!
I have to admit I was a bit skeptical. Most self-help books provide good information, but seem to have their fair share of "crazy." Elevate is the first one that I have read cover to cover and never had a "here we go" moment. The only critic I have for this book is that I feel like the author could have went into more detail about actions and exercises that he sugges ...more
The writing is not difficult to understand. I almost made the mistake of thinking that it would be one of those books that utilized a quite terrifying range of vocabulary and I would end up not understanding it, but that was not the case here. This is an interesting approach to how we might be able to behave in a way that would benefit us.
Everyone needs a good self-help book once in a while to lift up their spirits. You have to go back into the book and keep reading because it is just that good. ...more
