This is a well planned process and thoughtful approach that takes you step-by-step into developing a presentation for stating your accomplishments. Not only does it prepare you for a review, but it also provides the discipline of preparation throughout the year with the use of the "weekly log". The chapter-end summaries are especially helpful and, for me, represent the tone and style of the actual review itself. Chapter 8's three sections are invaluable. The author has taken what is typically considered a "dreaded" process, and turned it into one that is logical and easy to follow.

Yes ... you owe it to yourself and your family to take control of your employment future by being prepared with more quantifiable performance information about yourself than your boss has. Preparation, organization, presentation, and follow through are key. I was a corporate senior manager for 20 years and now an executive recruiter for 15. This powerful, but simply presented, little book is applicable for employees AND those looking for a job. Bravo to Brian for boiling down a complex and important concept into an easy to follow step by step guide. I am passing it on to my kids, friends, and busienss colleagues.

I received my review on a Friday afternoon and wasn't completely happy about it so I got this book and read it over the weekend. Next time I get a review I am going to kill it!

There are lessons in this book for everyone, whether you are starting your first job or re-entering the workforce. It's not easy to sell yourself, even if you are a sales person. Not everyone is comfortable talking themselves up or pointing out their sucessess, but it is necessary if you are going to be valued at your company and compensated for your talent.

The 'I Am Not Average' approach helps you get organized, stay on top of your 'wins' and present them in a concise document to educate and remind your supervisor of your value. I will be using it as a reminder how to put together my next review presentation. 'I Am Not Average' should be on everyone's bookshelf and continue to be throughout your career.
