I bought Hitting Your Stride for my nephew who graduated from college last year and can't seem to find his niche in the corporate world yet. I read it before I gave it to him, there is a lot of wonderful information written in a fun and engaging way for any young person starting their career. Ms. Russell has done a fabulous job using many interesting scenarios. I highly recommend this book for all young people and their parents, it gives you a new outlook on what your children are facing and how they can handle these new challenges. Times have changed, that's for sure.

I can't think of a better book to recommend for folks thinking about their future during these challenging times. Nan provides personal examples, valuable success stories, and thoughtful ideas for moving toward work that is authentic and passionate. It is interesting reading throughout. She shares insightful ways to move toward career success. This isn't one of those books filled with platitudes and simple clichés. This is a keeper.

I especially like the way Nan lets us into her thinking. We see how she has struggled with situations. I particularly appreciated her chapter on "Shades of Grey," sharing how most work issues can't be dealt with in absolutes but are, rather, as she says, more human, more complex, and more heart engaged. Life isn't black or white. Her other chapters - like Creating Your Own Luck, Bringing Yourself to Work, and Waking Up - helped me to understand myself better and what I can do in my life to "Hit My Stride." Buy it for yourself, but also for friends, co-workers, and family who are reconsidering what they want their work to be and to become.

Format: Paperback
No-nonsense career advice, dispensed with anecdotes from the author's own life to make for friendly reading. Unlike preachy self-help books that end up sitting unread on the shelf, this book invites repeat visits and is set up so that you can dip into chapters in whichever order appeals to you.

Reading for me was always pleasurable. I love to read mystery, horror, romance, spiritual, and so-on. However, I have never read anything like Nan Russell’s Hitting Your Stride. I have read m fair share of self-help books out of interests and when forced. To be honest, I hated every single one of them. How can one person know all there is to know and order the reader to do a specific thing if they was the desired outcome. We are all different and we all have different methods of success. The way Nan Russell writes her book is unlike any other “self-help” book. It actually is not a self-help book at all. I would call this piece of work and inspiring book. It makes the reader see in different ways than before and inspires them to look further into their lives and change the little things. It doesn’t say “If you want to be a millionaire, read a bunch of knowledge books and go to seminars, and then buy a puppy…” No, this book inspires people of all different natures to do what’s best in their own way. Buying a puppy might be great for me, but harmful to someone else. Nan Russell’s book conveys that.
I always thought to be a professional in the “work world” you just had to be your best and work your hardest. But, Nan Russell’s book changed that view. There is so much that goes into the melting pot of a professional. The stories you tell, your attendance, and the way you speak to others are all examples of what Nan Russell explains in her book. Throughout most of the book I already knew what Nan Russell was saying. She simply reminded me of the nature. But it was the placed inspirations and quotes and the real-life stories that made this book so interesting. I would find myself running into the living from to read passages to my husband because it gave me such a lifted feeling.

Book Review
Before reading Hitting Your Stride by Nan S. Russell I wondered what she could show me and weather reading this would just be another book read added to the list of other books by corporate know how's and what I could find in common and learn to incorporate into my life and work habits. After reading her book I am pleased to say that I found it not only uplifting and motivating but learn that many problems one has just starting out in a new job or career are the same for all people no matter how high up the latter they may seem to one. Her writing helped me to see where I thought my limits were and be able to see that the limits in my life were not just put on to me by circumstances and other people. It also showed me that when I feel boxed in to build a new road make anew avenue that one cannot be afraid to go for what they really want out of their jobs no matter what the cost or what message are we sending to not just our bosses but to our children who watch every day. After all don't we want to leave them the best of what this world can offer? So, that we remember to get out of the sandbox we are in to move forward. I also found that Nan herself had found herself afraid to give up her corporate life she had made for herself at first when it came to actually acting and doing the move to Montana. This struck a chord with me has saying something and planning for something is not the same has actually doing it when it comes time. Our decisions in life have consequences good or bad and those repercussions of what could be tend to make all of us weather we are high on the ladder or not take a step back. Ever know a new bride that wasn't contemplating her choice during her engagement.
