The Little Book of Greatness shares with readers five keys they can use to achieve their dreams and live a better life. Why was this an important book for you to write?
I really like helping people, so once I came up with this concept of the 5 Keys, I knew I had to get it out there so people can access it in as many ways as possible. I have a video course in post production, a workbook that is in the works, and more. I just want people to be able to harness the power of this system to improve their own lives.
What is a common misconception you feel people have about self improvement?
Oh wow. So many! That a system will just do everything for you. That your life will change without the hard work. That just because it worked for him or her, that it will work for me. We are all incredibly different, so what works for you won’t necessarily work for me. And of course, it takes actual action to make it happen. That’s one of the reasons I think my framework is so powerful, because it is light enough to allow you to apply it to your life in many many different ways.
How did you develop the 5 Keys to Greatness that you share in the book?
Lots and lots of driving. No, seriously! I was in a situation where I drove around 9000 miles in a summer, so when I wasn’t listening to music or books or anything else, I was working on this concept, and eventually I settled on these 5 main key areas.
What is one thing you hope readers take away from your book?
To make incremental improvements. If we are only a little better each day than we were, we will accomplish so much. Too many of us feel like we have to make big moves; we don’t need big moves as much as we need many small moves.

The little Book Of Greatness introduces us to a man named David who seems to have given it all up. Sitting on a cliff, David is troubled. He has not accomplished his dreams and everything seems to be crumbling down. David is thinking about life, wondering why he is in his current situation. Lost in his thoughts, a man appears from the woods. Little does he know that this stranger would give him something that may enable him to hold on for a little longer.
Ari Gunzburg speaks to everyone through David’s story. He speaks to his readers, and makes them feel like they are not alone. I like the comforting tone used throughout the book. When giving advice, the author uses a tone similar to that of a therapist. He is encouraging and offers hope to the hopeless. This book is meant for those that are about to give up. Things may appear like they make no sense, but the author assures everyone that we are destined for the best. You cannot help but admire how amazing Ari Gunzburg is with his moving words. Through his words you not only learn more about yourself as an individual, but also get enlightened about life in general and how our thoughts shape our destinies.
Chapter 12 is one of my favorite chapters. In this chapter, the author focuses on putting it all together. I enjoyed reading the conversations between Regina and David in this chapter. Major lessons in this chapter are rearranging our priorities and focusing on what is important in life. The writing is incredible and the text is engaging. Ari Gunzburg is a great narrator and captivates his audience.
The Little Book of Greatness is a motivational book but it does not feel bland like some books in the inspirational genre. The author wrote distinctively, narrating stories of scenarios that happen in real life as he incorporates important lessons in the story. I recommend The Little Book of Greatness to readers that would love some encouraging text that will cheer them up and help them become better people.
