More About the Author

Brian Klemmer was an international consultant and speaker whose seminars have been attended by tens of thousands of participants in Japan, Canada, the Philippines, Europe, and throughout the United States. He was truly an entertaining and effective speaker, facilitator and master of group dynamics.

Brian was founder of Klemmer & Associates which has produced results in companies such as ITT Sheraton, Hewlett Packard, American Suzuki Motor Corporation, as well as direct sales companies. He authored the best-selling book If How To's were Enough, We'd all be Skinny, Rich and Happy, which discusses many of the key principles and concepts that are the core of his company and his phenomenal, results-producing seminar series. His most recent book, The Compassionate Samurai outlines the ten traits of a samurai and was recently named a #1 Wall Street Journal Business Book.

On April 7, 2011, Brian passed away as the result of a torn carotid artery. When Brian Klemmer founded Klemmer & Associates, his dream was to create an army of compassionate Samurai to make a difference in this world. The greatest way that those who know and loved Brian can honor him is by stepping into that role. Brian Klemmer was a teacher, mentor, and great leader, and will be sorely missed.

Format: Paperback
Brian Klemmer states that the fairest way to gauge anything is by its results: often harsh, but always fair. Judging by the thousands of people that he has coached over the years, his concepts must work!
His book is as insightful and engaging as any other personal growth book I have read. The concepts he addresses, such as Resentment, Responsibility, Win-Win, etc. are practical and applicable- from family life to corporate culture.
What seperates Klemmer's book from others in the field are two key points:
1) He stresses the importance of experiential learning verses motivational or how-to work. The core of his philosophy centers on the premise that 99% of the decisions we make we do NOT make... our paradigms (or subconcious belief systems) make for us. By discovering these paradigms, we are able to take control of our decision making and thus grow in our personal power.
2) He discusses how to create results regardless of circumstances. This is extremely important because he provides readers with the necessary tools to create abundance despite the challenges and obstables of life.
I reread this book almost weekly, with earmarks and highlighted sections marking my copy. He stresses how self-improvement and personal growth not only helps you to create abundance in your own life, but also how you can create abundance in the lives of others. As he says in his book, he is about creating "A world that works for everyone, with no one left out!"

Brian Klemmer is a master craftsman in this incredible colletion of short expositions relating to topics for Personal Mastery. The author's great insights present the reader with spell-binding synopses of reflections about human paradigms, relationships, and effective methods for changing one's viewpoint from where they've always viewed things in the past, based on their experiences. It's a must read for anyone looking to seriously embark on a personal growth journey. Beyond information, beyond motivation, this book fosters growth from the inside out, which makes it extremely unique and exclusive.

Format: Paperback
Anyone who is stuck in his (or her) life, not making the progress he would like, should incorporate these concepts. Brian gave me the tools that I needed. Not only have I made exponential progress, but my husband is so pleased with his "new" wife that he is going to the next level, too. ANYONE,(yes, I mean you!) can take this book and find what is holding him back and ZOOM ahead. Brian is a master teacher!

Format: Paperback
In Brian Klemmer's book, "If How To's Were Enough, We'd All Be Skinny, Rich, & Happy" the emphasis is in changing your thinking. We don't do what we're told to do....if we did we would not have a difficult time staying healthy or meeting sales quotas in our business. According to Brian Klemmer, we only do what our fundamental beliefs and thoughts about life tell us to do. The real question is, are those beliefs serving you in what you say you want in your life? If your answer is "no", pick up this book and explore what may be holding you back. It may be something you don't even know is holding you back, but will discover about yourself in the course of reading this book. My results of living the philosophies found in "If How To's Were Enough, We'd All Be Skinny Rich & Happy" have been tremendous. I believe in myself at a much higher level, I am more effective in communicating with everyone I come into contact with, my relationships are more sincere and loving, I'm more successful in my business, and I feel like I'm making a bigger difference in my home, my community and the world. I know that people don't usually do what they're told, but I'm going to tell you this one thing....READ THIS BOOK! It will make a huge difference in your life and the lives of those around you.

Format: Paperback
This book led me to the Klemmer seminars-the book itself is a compendium of philosophy, attitude adjustment and compassion. It is a recipe for success in business, in relationships, in life itself. My life has been impacted beyond words by what I have learned here and in Brians seminars. I had read all the gurus of greatness, without much in the way of results, and after using what I learned here, began to experience the life changes I wanted so badly within days of applying Brians principles. Brian You ARE the greatest ! !

Format: Paperback
Brian Klemmer's book, along with his teachings, has allowed me to discover the subconscious beliefs that I didn't know I had that were stopping me from being as successful as I knew I could be, having a great relationship, and having more of what I wanted in life. I now make conscious choices about what direction my life is taking instead of letting my old programs run me. I have learned how to communicate more effectively and from the heart with all personality types, where I wasn't even aware before that people needed to hear things differently in order to understand what I was saying. I now focus on solutions and how to get things done instead of letting the problem stop me -- I am successful regardless of circumstances. I am taking bigger risks, setting higher goals and being more creative after breaking through my fear of success and fear of failure.
This is a must read for ANYONE that wants more out of life and doesn't know why they haven't been able to create the life, marriage or business they say they want.
