What would have made Breaking Out better?
Getting the life stories of 6 people who have hit it big in the lottery might be somewhat interesting, but even if you figure out all the things they seem to have in common, and then emulate those things yourself, it won't increase your chance of winning the lottery. It's a random event after all. The stories in Breaking Out come across the same way. The book profiles a number of people who hit it big in one way or another, looks for commonalities using a variety of esoteric sounding terms, and then seems to suggest that "you can do it too." It's probably almost a random as the lottery, and the book doesn't actually give you any actionable information. Something actionable would certainly help, but it still leaves unclear whether "breaking out" is ultimately a roll of the dice kind of situation, no matter what you do.
Has Breaking Out turned you off from other books in this genre?
It will make me even more suspicious of self-help type volumes. I got suckered into this one by reviews and by the book's website.
