Who wouldn't find inspiration in Bonnie St. John Deane? An African American woman who went to Harvard, became a Rhodes Scholar, and worked in the White House--and an athlete with one leg who skied in the Olympics for the handicapped--she's ideally suited to encourage people to realize their dreams without losing valuable aspects of their lives. According to Deane, there are two paths you can take to the top: "total commitment," in which you focus on either your mind, body, or spirit, and "blending," in which you use all three. "You can compete and win either way," she says. "The side effect of blending is developing as a whole person." Succeeding Sane
offers numerous suggestions for using mind, body, and
spirit to face a variety of challenges, from sports to work to relationships, as well as visualization and stress-reduction techniques for performing better in any situation. In addition to providing anecdotes about other successful people, Deane shows beyond any doubt that this program has worked for at least one person: herself. --Ben Kallen, Personal Growth editor
