We've comprehensively compiled reviews of The Slight Edge from the world's leading experts.

Nick Loper The Slight Edge - Consistent progress over time adds up to some compounding results. (Source)

Benjamin Spall From a business perspective, The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson is one of the best explorations on the importance (both in the positive and the negative) of the habits we do every day that I've ever read. (Source)

Catherine Plano Talks about what are those little things that we can do on a daily basis that have a high impact. Jeff talks about the importance of 'how' we do what we do. In other words, we can have this big audacious goal, dive into it and then leave it. So... the how is important because it’s those little daily things that build up to your end goal, it’s just that most individuals don't keep our ideas alive!!! If you think about a plant, first you have to plant the seed (idea), then you have to cultivate your idea (put daily energy into it) for it to then finally harvest. (Source)
