8 reviews for The Slight Edge

  1. Adam

    This is so much better than the majority of personal development books. Practical, focused, clear–Olson’s book is the kind of work that subtly shifts an open reader’s thinking and enables him or her to make small but effective changes that reap big rewards in the long run. I will remember this book for a long time. [Review from Goodreads]

  2. Jonathan Melville

    The Slight Edge is mostly great. All the other reviews have done a wonderful job of summarizing why this is an important book, why it can be a life-changer and why if you’re willing to “do the work”, you will “have the power”.

    A few minor criticisms: “Success” is often defined by the author as “getting rich”… Not everybody measures their success by how fat their bank account becomes.
    The Slight Edge is VERY repetitive, you will find yourself reading the same exact idea (or even verbatim sentence) many times during the course of this book. Lastly, he let his daughter contribute a chapter to this book that I felt added nothing of value.

    Overall, I’m very glad I read this book. There are some really profound ideas that I will be putting to work in my everyday life. [Review from Goodreads]

  3. John Williams

    This book and philosophy changed the way I do a lot of things. The simple concept that our actions compound for good or bad is nothing new but Jeff’s book does a fantastic job at keeping it simple and makes it something you should think about often. The slight edge in life and business is very real and I think this is a must read for everyone. [Review from Goodreads]

  4. Mary Collin

    Loved this book so much I’m telling everyone about it and plan to get extra copies to give as gifts. It’s ridiculously simple, absolutely honest and a real page-turner, packed with good, simple, basic – but profound – wisdom.

    It’s a great kick up the backside to make changes. As soon as i finished it – I immediately restarted! I’m sure this will be a regular re-read. [Review from Goodreads]

  5. Cliff Yates

    this book has been so awesome to my acting/comedy, and writing career. It’s about daily small changes that add up. So many things are easy not to do, but also they are just as easy to do. Last year I had trouble rehearsing my stand up routines, maybe 30 hours. After reading this book, I began rehearsing 1 hour a day, 6 days a week. Since reading this book four months ago, I have rehearsed my comedy over 80 hours, by small daily habits. Ive been using the same techniques in rehearsing my acting monologues the same way. Excellent read, I recommend to anyone who wants to use small daily habit to compound success, in any field. [Review from Goodreads]

  6. Bobby Jones

    I would have to put “The Slight Edge” on my top ten books I’ve ever read. Great book on personal development! The principles explained are so simple and easy to understand. Through the process of reading (and re-reading) this book, I can see the Slight Edge principles at work in my life…sometimes the Slight Edge has worked for me and and sometimes its worked against me. But nonetheless…the Slight Edge is always at work.

    Another great book to read towards the beginning of a new year! [Review from Goodreads]

  7. Dana Muse

    Excellent book! No matter what your struggle is, this book can help you accomplish it with small steps everyday. [Review from Goodreads]

  8. Carrie Kenniston

    I loved The Slight Edge because while being a “personal development” book, it was different than the rest. Whenever I set a goal, I want it done overnight. The stories and suggestions on how to incorporate the slight edge into your own life was so refreshingly simple that I’m excited to get started on my future goals! [Review from Goodreads]
