    Who hasn't picked up a self help book because they have felt frustration. Self help books lately have fascinated me. I'm in the category get busy learning or get busy dying. I correlate the learning process with staying healthy. An idle mind is the devil's playground.

    When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.... All right, I'm ready. This isn't a one sitting type book but a book to read stretched out over weeks while you do your own inner diagnosis. I'm completely fascinated with myself but I constantly am being frustrated. The author has his own ten steps to help you come full circle and begin to explore how to truly elevate your life. I'm constantly frustrated by things I can not control and he puts a positive spin on this. Instead of being frustrated try being fascinated. Well its worth trying. I loved the amazing quotes throughout the book and a few of them I have directed at coworkers and even my kids. My curiosity level has always been high so its not a big leap for me to pester people with questions. I think the author has an amazing perspective on life and like I said it would take awhile to fully immerse yourself in all the steps of this book but it certainly adds a certain clarity between where you are and where you want to be. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Thanks Bookish First and the author for allowing me a copy to read and self help myself.

    I was so happy that I recieved Joseph’s book Elevate. I knew this book would be coming to me the moment I read the first look. I have been on an awakening, spiritual, finding my true self journey since I was around 18 now I’m 42. Which has changed my life just like Joseph talks about in the book. I will be continuing following my true path for the rest of my life. This book would help everyone who reads it, if they are willing to let go of the conditioning we all go through and are open to chang

    I was so happy that I recieved Joseph’s book Elevate. I knew this book would be coming to me the moment I read the first look. I have been on an awakening, spiritual, finding my true self journey since I was around 18 now I’m 42. Which has changed my life just like Joseph talks about in the book. I will be continuing following my true path for the rest of my life. This book would help everyone who reads it, if they are willing to let go of the conditioning we all go through and are open to change and learning. Unlearning what I was taught and learning my own truth was the best thing I’ve done for myself and my family. I just want to thank you for such an inspiring self help book. Hope everyone reads it.

    I won this book on Goodreads. This book is a fascinating look into one's mindset. At times I felt vulnerable looking at my biases and concepts towards things in my life. The concepts that I want to utilize and takeaway for myself is to "ask" and to "listen." These are just two points to consider from everyday life to starting a new business and everything in between, these can be used for basically all that life has to offer. Listening is valuable, I find most businesses fail to listen to themse

    I won this book on Goodreads. This book is a fascinating look into one's mindset. At times I felt vulnerable looking at my biases and concepts towards things in my life. The concepts that I want to utilize and takeaway for myself is to "ask" and to "listen." These are just two points to consider from everyday life to starting a new business and everything in between, these can be used for basically all that life has to offer. Listening is valuable, I find most businesses fail to listen to themselves and especially to their employees when problems arise and failure results. I also find that people often times say they are open minded and tolerant but I find those people are the most closed minded and intolerant, especially if your views differ from their views. This book provides the groundwork for inner thought and self introspection. This book covers a broad range of topics, such as love, appreciation and looking at oneself through a different lens by changing the attitude that surrounds it.

The author’s relaxed, encouraging voice offers practical tips on surfing the changing waves of the world.

I thank the publisher for the advance readers copy.

    With so many topic-specific self-help books already on the market, Deitch’s aspiration of a comprehensive “Essential Guide to Life” is lofty. He succeeds. The 330 pages of Elevate come quickly because the concepts are compact and broken up with plenty of engaging stories. I’m well read in this genre and still noted plenty of gems of new wisdom to leverage, plus lots of reinforcement of ideas I’ve encountered before.

    With so many topic-specific self-help books already on the market, Deitch’s aspiration of a comprehensive “Essential Guide to Life” is lofty. He succeeds. The 330 pages of Elevate come quickly because the concepts are compact and broken up with plenty of engaging stories. I’m well read in this genre and still noted plenty of gems of new wisdom to leverage, plus lots of reinforcement of ideas I’ve encountered before. Deitch draws on common life stories, including some hard experiences, to make his points relevant. Since he succeeded first in business before turning to this motivational work, he background comes with some extra credibility. The practical wisdom ranges from broad topics, like our overall mindset, to specific areas like gratitude and exercise. Among my favorite take-aways was the reminder that we perform best when our level of excitement is balanced against the challenge required for the next goal we’ve set, which should be one of many in a sequence toward bigger aspirations.

    Elevate is definitely not one of those books that can be stopped and started often; you have to devote time to reading it through at least once, then go back and reread each section with the purpose of taking notes! 

    Author Joseph Deitch catches the reader's attention with honest truths without being too wordy. For example, in Part One (Awareness) Deitch writes, "true attention entails looking, listening, and learning without prejudice." Without prejudice. Sounds simple, but try paying attention

    Elevate is definitely not one of those books that can be stopped and started often; you have to devote time to reading it through at least once, then go back and reread each section with the purpose of taking notes! 

    Author Joseph Deitch catches the reader's attention with honest truths without being too wordy. For example, in Part One (Awareness) Deitch writes, "true attention entails looking, listening, and learning without prejudice." Without prejudice. Sounds simple, but try paying attention to something or someone without your preconceived notions getting in the way. It's tough at first, just like learning to actively listen when someone is talking, instead of just waiting for your turn to speak. 

    This book is one of the few in the "self-help" genre that will actually help you! The sections are divided sensibly, and peppered throughout are wonderful quotes crom various famous people.

    I won this book from Bookish in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Ok, so I'm one of those people. I listen to motivational videos, hype songs, and speeches. My bookshelves are full of books to help me grow as a person. I'm always looking for a new way to look at an old concept. Elevate is a perfect addition to my collection. The writing is clear and precise, the author is easy to understand and relate to, and he reminds you of those things you already wanted to change in the first place.

    This book is meant to Elevate your thinking, which will, in turn, elevate your life. If you're looking for a new idea to slap you in the head, this isn't the book for you. But if you're looking for a book that will remind you of all those ideas and changes and things you meant to do and already knew you needed to do, this is it. Is it worth buying? Yes, it is. Would I have bought it if I had not won it in the raffle? Yes, yes I would have. Now does that mean everyone will love this book? No, because we are all different and we all have different perspectives on the world. But from my perspective, this was a good read.

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 easy to understand and I found it easy to flip back to areas that I wanted to revisit. I did not need to re-read the text n order to understand exactly what the author was trying to convey and while we aren't supposed to judge books by their covers - this one is modern and simplistic and I really liked it.

    Elevate was never going to be a winner for me in that it is simply not my genre. While many others my age enjoy non-fiction books and inspirational biographies, my interests lie in the realms of fiction. I have the utmost respect for people who thrive on these books and having heard Joe speak in person, I can attest that he is a kind, passionate man with a great deal of introspective knowledge. However, when I reach a place in a book when I am forcing myself through it - not because

    Elevate was never going to be a winner for me in that it is simply not my genre. While many others my age enjoy non-fiction books and inspirational biographies, my interests lie in the realms of fiction. I have the utmost respect for people who thrive on these books and having heard Joe speak in person, I can attest that he is a kind, passionate man with a great deal of introspective knowledge. However, when I reach a place in a book when I am forcing myself through it - not because of he source material, but because my heart is in another place - I know I am doing a greater service to both the book and myself by choosing a different title and letting this one go.

    I believe that those seeking guidance and inspiration could take a lot away from Joe's life experience, and if you enjoy psychology non-fiction or self-help books, Elevate will be worth a read. As for my copy, I will be donating it to my local library where it can continue to touch and inspire people who have never met Joe, and they may learn from his words.
