Title:  The Aladdin Factor
Author:  Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen
Stars:  ***

These two are the authors of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book and the
dozens of Chicken Soup books that have followed. They certainly have
milked that one!  But hey, if it works, keep doing it, right?  

As you might have guessed, the premise of this book is that when we
want something, we should ask for it.  There is so much to be gained if we
do and so much to lose if we don’t.  People are ready, willing, and able to
help us, if only we are willing to make the inquiry.  You might ask yourself
how the authors could have created an entire book out of that!  Well, there
is a little more to it.  They help you first determine what you want.  They give
practical advice for conquering fears of asking.  They give instructions on
how to ask, etc. There’s a fair amount to learn.
