Comments Good Self, Bad Self: Transforming Your Worst Qualities into Your Biggest Assets

  1. The advice in the book is obvious stuff like be flexible but not too flexible be strong but not too rigid a bad trait can be good and a good trait can be bad have perspective on your behaviors to avoid crisis There I just saved you hours of reading I guess I was looking for real insight and she has the experience to provide that but she doesn t Why Very disappointed and won t be reading anything from Judy Smith.


  2. Crisis diverted Ego Denial Fear Ambition Accommodation Patience Indulgence.Depending on how we use them, these big seven character traits can be our biggest assets or our biggest liabilities In the words of the author The same traits that make you successful can be your downfall That s the root of most crises and the point of this book p 9 In each chapter, the author presents how her POWER approach can be used to keep each of these traits in check p 14 Pinpoint the core trait Identify which trai [...]


  3. I read this book for a class It had been on my to read list for a while but I confess I probably wouldn t have picked it up if I didn t have the assignment to read this I enjoyed it It s very clear and concise at times it s a bit repetitive I like that Judy is very no nonsense and she makes the reader acknowledge that frequently the problems in your life come from your own faults It is necessary to acknowledge those faults, figure out how to right the wrongs and then figure out a way to channel [...]


  4. Long,drawn out Lots of name dropping She makes her point with tons of stories about famous people, but there is no real content The title of the book is misleading as I did NOT learn one bit about transforming your worst qualities into your biggest assets basically, use moderation in all things including your traits.


  5. Great insight into managing any crisis Tactical advice for solving or resolving problems in the workplace or in personal life situations The Olivia Pope character in the tv series is based on the work of Judy Smith.


  6. I found myself skimming through this, not particularly well or badly written and rather obvious in its conclusions.


  7. I received a galley copy of this book through a giveaway I was originally interested in the book because it seemed different from so many self help or advice books out there, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was Judy Smith, a professional crisis management expert, goes over several traits she has seen time and again lead others to require her assistance However, she acknowledges that all of those traits can be valuable, when in balance Unlike so many self help authors whose goal se [...]


  8. Smith s argues that we need to establish a middle point between virtues and vices While the Greek philosophers covered this topic centuries ago, Smith enlivens the idea with multiple examples of public figures who allow virtues to become vices Good Self, Bad Self provides insights about seven core human traits ego, denial, fear, ambition, accommodation, patience, indulgence Other writers, especially those Greek philosophers, see complexity in human behavior than Smith writes about Some of Smith [...]


  9. Well yes we all have a good self and a bad self but do we have control I bet we don t This will give you a bit of a handle on why you are out of control and love it SOOOOOO MUCH We all like the spotlight sometimes But seriously, how many times can you say your sorry for being such a jackass at work, to your partner, when your car breaks down, when you can t find your keys, you didn t get that promotion.what After everything you ve sacrificed for whoever, whatever Anyway was it one of these trait [...]


  10. Smith uses lots of examples in the book but nothing juicy or new That made me stop and thinkwhat did I think this book was about anyway I guess I wanted it to along the storylines of the TV show Scandal but that is written by Shonda Rhimes After stepping back and reading the book on its own merit it helped me think about how I handled crisis in my life.eve me things will be handled differently after reading this book Know how to navigate the big seven ego, denial, fear, ambition, accomandations, [...]


  11. I was intrigued by this title because I ve noticed that some aspects of my personality seem both good and bad, and I can see ways the same trait has both helped me succeed and caused some problems Unfortunately, the book didn t live up to my expectations The author rushes through too much, everything from the good and the bad of ambition to addictions to when it s OK to go with the flow, without going into any detail about any of it she does mention titles of other books that do I wasn t that fo [...]


  12. I found this book very helpful toward understanding how each of us can trip ourselves up While it does not go very deep into the causes of this phenomenon she leave this to professional therapists , the author does give very useful and practical advise towards managing the parts of ourselves responsible She also provides interesting anecdotal illustrations including many about people we ve often read about in the media many of them very recent There is also a useful formula offered to help remin [...]


  13. Crisis management expert Judy Smith offers advice to the in famous and not so famous alike on how to avoid self destructive behaviors and what to do when the worst happens She shows how traits like ego, ambition, and accommodation that can drive us to success can also lead us to horrible downfalls She also provides tips on giving a sincere apology In today s world where omnipresent camera phones can thrust anyone into an unwanted limelight, Smith s clear and actionable advice is essential.


  14. what I liked lots of stories of things going very wrong like the concept of trait that take you to the top as also the traits that will demolish you good sensible advisewhat I missed meat on the stories talking about issues depth on the different traits ego, fear, etc dare I say here ZenIt was a good book just not a great book, glad I read it as I came away with a different way of looking at things.


  15. I wanted to love this book, but I just couldn t find myself finishing it I was looking for real ways to turn my worst qualities into my best assets All I really got was a lot of crisis management stories, and a lot of if they had checked their ego before hand, none of this would have happened Well, sure.but what about the promise of the book About 80 pages in and I just could NOT find any good adviceems of a tell all than self help.


  16. Be aware that this book is long, when I say that I mean even in Audio Book format it seems that it goes on forever I have listened to and read longer books, but it seems as if this one goes on forever Despite this, I wouldn t fault the information given, and the real life examples given by the Author when she is called upon to fix things that have gone wrong in the lives of people on various positions of power I would of however liked depth in certain areas and less info in others.


  17. This book is full of a lot of common sense The author has obviously dealt with some big time life crises and knows what she is talking about I always like it when people recognize that every quality has its good and bad aspects The book has great information, interesting stories, and it definitely made me think new thoughts which always makes for a great non fiction book.


  18. This book supports the idea of learning from the mistakes of others Each chapter uses real stories of normal or not so normal people to promote a healthy balance of ambition, indulgence, patience,etc Very motivational for young adults such as myself to recognize a problem and seek crisis prevention for self


  19. Judy Smith gives the reader a straightforward approach to truly transform their lives She provides real examples to explain the theories Then Smith takes it one step further and provides the how to make the changes An excellent self help book for life today Thanks to for providing my copy.


  20. This book is less a self help book than a compilation of scandals and miscues and how people could have avoided their problems The final chapter does talk about the importance of apologizing and explains the best way to do it In short, I m sorry if I offended you when I isn t a good way to start.


  21. This book is written by woman who was the inspiration for the TV show Scandal I didn t realize this until after I read the introduction and I m not familiar with the TV series either However, she gives good advice on the different areas of our personality that can potentially push us into a crisis She provides numerous real life examples from politics, business and the entertainment fields.


  22. I wasn t sure exactly what I was expecting when I picked this book up, but I was pleasantly surprised This book gave me a lot to think and write about for myself and I didn t expect I would be hit personally with any information or get affected like I did I really enjoyed the experience this book brought me.


  23. I received a free advance uncorrected manuscript from Because it was an advance copy it was kind of like reading a term paper She offers some good common sense advice I liked the book, but it wasn t great.


  24. This is a must read for those looking to turn their weaknesses into strengths Written by the best person in crisis management It flows well and is extremely practical with great anecdotes to illustrate her points.


  25. I started this book over many times but it was a good read to reinforce the qualities that make or break success in our lives I can see why Shonda thought this was an interesting concept for a TV Show.


  26. You ll probably get a good read from this book if you re reading it for the self help aspect of it And you ll probably be a little disappointed if you re reading this book because Olivia Pope was based off of Judy Smith


  27. She has an extensive vocabulary and the lesson she provides are definitely words to live by The book was good but, the things she wrote about I already read about in several other books That s why I gave it 3 stars




  28. Very poppy but psychoanalytically sound Nothing really new here, but I appreciate Smith s friendly, no nonsense presentation RIYL Scandal TV series
