Recently, The Art of Focus picked up a bad review. I knew it had to come eventually. What seems like magic to one person, can feel like nails on the chalkboard to someone else, right?
I love living in a world where people can say what they want about things.
One of the criticisms of the book was that I compared the reader to a dog named Doofus.
He’s right. I do.
I compare the story of Doofus to myself too.
The book opens with the story of Doofus. I wrote that chapter as a children’s story. (And by the way, The Art of Motivation opens with the story of a cat named Keki.)
I use the story of Doofus to illustrate the ideas that are expounded upon in the rest of the book.
These aren’t hard principles. But they are backed by science. I’ve had some readers tell me that they went through every link and learned a lot doing that. They told me that they appreciated that I made it so easy for them to get to the science.
Most readers have told me that they love the story of Doofus.
I hope you like it.
But if you don’t, that’s okay. And I sincerely hope you find what you need.
