Start Where You Are is a must-have, must-read guide to pursuing happiness in changing times. It’s not just about surviving as an individual or business in the current economic environment, but about thriving - personally, collectively, and globally. This is a very readable book and there are several enlightning observations that hit you right between the eyes and make you think. Unfortunately, these nuggets of gold are surrounded by lots of stories and, for me, that detracts from the very useful message of the book. If you want to turn your life around, no matter where you find yourself now, this will give you a good poke in the right direction.

Start Where You Are: Life Lessons in Getting from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be by Chris . They give up and settle

Start Where You Are: Life Lessons in Getting from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be by Chris Gardner, Mim E. Rivas. This isn’t a book about dating but about motivation. The title says it all, start where you are. Many single men and women have a clear picture of the type of person that they want to date but don’t realize that essentially they aren’t good enough for those people. They give up and settle. What this book encourages readers to do is to start where you are but keep in mind where you want to be. It may take you five months to lose weight but just start where you are. If you can’t afford a gym membership, just walk around your neighborhood.

“Gardner is encouraging us all to start where we are and dare to make our lives bigger and stronger, more satisfactory, and better. Chris Gardner is a knockout!”

—Maya Angelou

Normally I leave review only when it is bad, probably like most regular people, because I get lazy and forget to write one, when it is a good one. But this time I almost didn't have to force myself to take time and write this.
I gave 5 stars, although the book does have some flaws.
Some of the stories are hard to understand, may be it is due to me being a foreigner, or english being my second language, or the language it is written in is not simple enough for everybody to understand, or some other reasons, but I do listen to every CD of this book few times to get the most out of it.
As for pros, there are many of those for me.
I have learnt about myself, understood myself and got a wide perspective on what is going on in my life more in two days of listening to the book, than I did in the last one and half years talking to people around me, my mom, and doing research on the internet.
Ability to word the problem, to give it a name, and realization of the fact that I am not alone gave me a jump start to my healing and growing into someone who I was meant to be all along. I don't know yet who and where I will be, but now I know what I need to work towards to and this new goal gives me peace and brings back my old me, a persistent, intelligent and strong person, a child of God.
I regret, I havent' gotten this CD at least 6 months ago, when I was broken into smallest pieces ever, when emotionally and mentally I was lower than the dust under my feet. But there is a reason for everything. I hope later in life this experience will become a valuable one for me.
Anyways, you have to be ready for this book. Going back to the cons, it is not written (CD in my case) in a way, where everything said in it just goes straight to your brain. But I do recommend it to people, who is lost in life, financially, emotionally, mentally or just feel stuck in somewhere he does not belong.

I really enjoyed this book and it really helped me through some tough times. I had also read Pursuit of Happyness a while back and his writing style is no-holds-barred honest and of so much depth. My favorite takeaway from this book (there were many!) was his explanation on the fact that the Calvary ain't coming. And that's a beautiful thing to realize. Thanks Chris!! Love your books

I was a big fan of the movie "Pursuit of Happyness" to begin with. I also like reading self help books and have many of them. This book is not only a wonderful true story full of insight and lessons, its also a fantastic read. Chris Gardner has a great talent for writing as well as making money. The book is extremely motivational and his stories will remind you of what any one of us can attain, not just materialistically, but on an inner level. this is a book i will read over and over. I have already recommended it to at least 5 people. Cant go wrong with this one.

40 practical tips and stories/examples from the man who did just as he says... started where he was at. Looking forward to seeing him in person next month and hopefully get his book signed. He's been such an inspiration!!

I started reading this book years ago. I decided I wanted to finish it. Good book and a good story.
I got the book shipped quickly to me. Faster than i expected. It was brand new & i think it was also signed when i opened it. This book starts off right & is really on point on relating to anyone that is really trying to make it out in the world.
