Working on Yourself Doesn't Work: The 3 Simple Ideas that will Instantaneously Transform Your Life (2009) — This book is a great introduction to the Kanes' approach to personal transformation. I have benefited immeasurably, both personally and professionally, from the Kanes' books, radio shows, and seminars. I consider the Kanes' work to be such a perfect adjunct to learning that I offer a discount to students who attend their seminars. See details under programming and fees.
