Inspirational Book Review - "The Nurse in the Delivery Room Slapped Me... Once"
The Urban Book Source
You are a horse, the water is your success in life and The Nurse in the Delivery Room Slapped Me... Once will lead you to that water. But will you drink? Huh?
Author D. Anthony has provided a book full of encouraging concepts to all who are ready and willing to push the boundaries of their potential in life. Reading this book is one good way to transform your "half empty" mentality into "half full" when looking at your cup of life. If you are hopelessly pessimistic, this book may drive you further in your shell. Why? Because you will not be able to read this book and continue to justify staying in that position. However, if you are really seeking a means of improvement in terms of your outlook on life, this book will nurture you like a loving but stern mother. It will challenge your ability to be confident on so many levels. This book will make you reflect and will not let you back down from the challenges of life.
Each chapter of The Nurse in the Delivery Room Slapped Me... Once touches a different aspect of where we tend to fall short. If you are having trouble taking charge of your life and the direction that it is going in, "Born To Lead" will push you in the right direction. If life is hitting you fast, hard and from different angles like the young Mike Tyson, "Then Life Happened" is a chapter that will give you the strength to duck, weave, and even take a few blows like Evander Holyfield and win in the end - even if you end up losing a piece of your ear... There are even chapters about finding that inner inspiration and even how to deal with death, among others.
This book is highly recommended for everyone who is ready to commit to improving their life and need a little extra help in the planning department.
1. What did you like best about this book?
One thing that I like about D. Anthony is that he reveals a lot about himself and his personal struggles. This book does not come off like a preachy "do this, do this, do this" type of book where the author seems to be artificial in their approach. Instead, the authors lives what he writes about and shares his personal strategies of overcoming potentially negative situations.
2. What did you dislike about this book?
* I did not think that the title fit the theme of the book.
* The cover had nothing to do with the title or theme of the book.
* The sentences were too long. I sometimes got lost in the volume of words and could not figure out the point D. Anthony was getting across.
* Each chapter ended with a key point that did not make sense in the context of the chapter. I was always asking, "What did that have to do with what I just read?
3. How can the author improve this book?
Make it simpler. The author needs to revise the book following the points in my answers to the previous two questions. That would make this book more accessible to people who want to benefit from the book but might not have the ability to wade through the amount of words used to convey his points.
