Elevate: An Essential Guide to Life Reviews
“...when our awareness expands, so does our world ... and it becomes increasingly wondrous.”
~ Joseph Deitch
Years ago, I devoured many of the self help books on the market, after going through a particularly rough period in my life. I learned a lot that over the years has been very beneficial. When I saw this, I wanted to read about what a man who wrote a book about lifelong quest for wisdom and self-improvement would have to say. I feel I was very fortunate that I received this book in giveaway. ...more
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.

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 ...more
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.
Most people will ...more
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 ...more
Elevate is an inspirational self-help book that is a little too broad to truly help me on a personal level.
Elevate contains a lot of theory. While the theory is strong (and has been shown across multiple disciplines), there are few tasks to actually help the reader [ut these into practice. Ther are a few structured exercised that will help me elevate parts of my life. But too much of the book is just information and I don't really know what to do with it.
I would like to see is seminar because he ...more

Look past the bland cover and nondescript title, and you’ll see that this is not a run-of-the-mill self-help book. In an engagingly casual, encouraging voice, Deitch, a leading financial planner with a well-informed interest in personal growth (he also won a Tony Award for co-producing “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess” on Broadway), provides a “roadmap” of shortcuts to leading a fulfilling life. Like any good teacher, the author draws from years of his own experience and others’ wisdom to speed up ...more
