This is truly a great book for helping people take control over their lives: personally and professionally. Since the mid-1960s I have read over 300 self-help books and books about self-help books. I found this one very enjoyable to read. It was fun. It is filled with very useful down to earth stories and examples and 8 excellent keys to help all of us succeed in our lives.
From the first page to the last, this book is full of practical wisdom. What's more, it's funny too! St.John knows what he is talking about, but it's not merely about his life's experience but also a gist of insights gained by others who had achieved great success (whatever success meant to them!) in all fields of human endeavor. Read it, enjoy it, and learn from it!

Having created many startups, both successful and some not so...I was starting on a new venture and needed some inspiration...and came across this book. I am really impressed with the style of humor, the logical progression of concepts and the great design layout....a great book.
This is probably the best edited book I've ever had. There is no photo, but tons of pictures. It is very well written, and both entertaining and scientific in its suggestions. It's obviously better than "8 to be great" and its cost equals value. It's way better than other OLD (but similar) approach to the argument. Don't miss it, I buy only extremely good books from amazon, and this is one of that.
This is one of the most entertaining books I've ever read. The writing is simple and concise, and the illustrations are captivating. The quotes Richard has collected from some really successful people capture the essence of success in a down-to-earth way. Awesome!!
