Bush is the classic Jabez success story; Report that the critics dismiss the book as just another self-help book that reduces religion's great insights to six easy-to-follow steps; Statement that self-help allows one to blame some of the neuroses on repressed childhood trauma or undemonstrative parents, but fundamentally he is expected to get the act together, overcome the insecurities, and reach for greatness.
