Book Review: Who says You Can’t? You Do – Daniel Chidiac

They say

“a real jewel would aways be valuable to its keeper.”

This book is no less than a jewel in my small but, tasteful collection of books.

I finally finished the book!!! I’d been at it for about 6 months and I’m glad I’m through cover to cover.

The author is an Australian who turned his life around. I got my hands on this book even before I knew what NLP was… So it’s apparent that I wasn’t familiar with most of the concepts yet, it was incredibly easy to catch up with whatever was being explained. 

Who Says You Can’t? You Do is a book based purely on Neuro Linguistic Programming. It’s a how-to for taking full control of life and letting great things unravel. 

This book, unlike others in the genre doesn’t exhaust you with heavy quotes and unrealistic goals that you won’t be able to achieve. It doesn’t mention people that are already accomplished, rather walks us through the path of patience and hardwork that practically everyone has to go through. 

This book isn’t a chick flick or a classic novel, so it won’t take you to fantasy land.

It’s real life stories, based on real life scenarios, penned down by a real person. 

A person who was just like you and me… 

A person who wasn’t BORN LUCKY…

  • A person who was sensible enough to take charge of his own destiny and not blame circumstances
  • A person who has emerged from darkness into light, that is now shining upon others and changing lives
  • A person who was sensible enough to take charge of his own destiny and not blame circumstances
  • A person who has emerged from darkness into light, that is now shining upon others and changing lives

    A person who believed in himself and his hardwork more than luck.


    The author doesn’t talk about instant 7 figure income or any other instant gratification that the world is running after. He talks about baby steps- one little change at a time, one little transition at a time. 

    The best part- This book does NOT SPOONFEED Success. It’s a line drawing and you’re to fill in your choice of colors, at your pace, in your choice of areas.

    This book is a push forward for all those who need it.

    Daniel chidiac has apparently worked hard in making this book relatable, casual and interactive.

    He says and I quote:” I wanted it to be adaptable to everyone, regardless of financial, religious and social position. I went to people from all walks of life and have them the same section to read, and it seemed they were all fascinated.”Indeed

    It resonates with most people if not all. The only people who wouldn’t relate are the

    • Nonreaders
    • Ones who don’t want to take action

    I love this book so much that I have bookmarked almost every page to revert back to for occasional doses of wisdom and knowledge.


    If you’re lost, or trying out there to make something happen, this book is for you.

    By the time you finish reading it, Daniel Chidiac would have laid out a nice blueprint for you to follow… 

    I’m off buying a copy to gift to someone, how about you?
