"JOLT!" by: Phil Cooke - Shocking Revelations, or Buzz-kill?

By: Phil Cooke, Published by Thomas Nelson
Disclosure: I received a free electronic copy of Jolt! from BookSneeze and Thomas Nelson for review purposes. This review reflects my true opinion.

Fast Review:  3.5 out of 5 stars - Starts well, but doesn't keep up the intensity.  Big on broad concepts, light on detailed instructions. Could be just the inspiration you need to seek out the next steps.

Jolt! is a book about changing your life.  The author offers 25 "Jolts" to your system that are aimed to shake you out of your comfort zone, pull you out of the rut you've fallen into, and set you on the path towards your dream life.

At least, that's the idea.

The author is very inspirational, but despite promising to be different than the mass of self-help books out there by not just offering feel-good motivational speech, but actual nitty-gritty how-tos - the book ends up being mostly just that.  A pep talk before the big game as opposed to the actual game plan.

If you are looking for motivation and inspiration, this may be the book for you.  If you are looking for a life coach style plan for change - you won't find that here.
