Once I picked up Masters of Success it was difficult to put it down.
What I found most refreshing about this book is that each submission puts a unique spin on a common theme - how to be successful. Like the "Chicken Soup" series - the book is moving and, an entertaining and very valuable read!

Format: Paperback
Reading the book gives one hope that success is not just a wish or dream, that it can be real.
Success means different things to different people and the book captured this message. In our society, more often than not, success is measured only by the $ sign. This book gives us a more meaningful explanation of what success is all about. Success comes from unexpected areas of life and the book has lots of examples illustrating this.
I will read this book over and ever and as I grow I will be able to gain a new perspective every time.

I did not read this book cover to cover. I started out by looking through the contents and read each part I was interested in. Before I knew it, I did read the whole book. I am in some of the situations, these success people were in. The stories gave me the motivation to keep on the right track in my journey. It was a great read and a book to keep to review later.

Format: Paperback
What a great read! Easy to sit down and read many stories at a time, in a variety of areas from personal growth to business.
The best part is the combined effort of MANY business professionals, sharing success stories that everyone can easily understand and actually apply these lessons to their own life and business.

Format: Paperback
If you are tired of so-called self-help or motivational books that are big on hype but small on delivery, then THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU.
The content is first rate and the packaging is terrific for the busy professional. There are 65 stories, averaging only 4 pages each. This means you can read a story whenever you have ten minutes. Kudos to Dr. Misner for assembling an all-star team that has delivered knock-out material on all aspects of business and personal success. Put the lessons to use and you will see results - I have.

Format: Paperback
Lovely book which gives anecdotes of those who have risen above adversity and mastered success. Read it along with Optimal Thinking:How to Be Your Best Self (to learn how to master emotions, bring out the best in others and make the most of every situation) and The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People (to learn how to move from dependence to independence, from personal victories to public victories). The three books together are all you will ever need to be successful and inspire optimal success in others.
