I don't know how "secret" Dawson's ideas are, but as one of the very few top-level professionals on the speaking circuit, he delivers a lot of motivation to get you off your duff. He gives you plenty more than just stale ideas to think about. I personally use his time management system, because he was the first person to show me the real value of having one that actually works. Sharing several of the ideas in this book with the clients I coach has helped my clients reach specific goals much faster.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The 13 Secrets of Power Performance covers a number of principles aimed at creating exceptional individual achievement. Although grouped into thirteen main chapters, the principles are far more in abundance as each chapter is very lengthy on content. The book is also filled with a number of relevant and sometimes humorous quotations from great performers throughout history.

Many of these principles have been discussed in other books, taking away from the notion that these are in fact "secrets.' Dawson has essentially rehashed mostly known ideologies and put them into his own words with his own examples. Dawson can be exceedingly long winded at times as well, often discussing topics long after the point has been made clear.

This content of the book is more than adequate and will certainly aid in individual performance, but with the abundance of books available on personal achievement, Dawson regrettably has not risen above the pack due to the lack of any significant unique content.

Once again Roger has amazed me with the way he explains his knowledge. I read 75 books a year, this is one book that I really had an easy time learning and applying, and that is what we are all looking for isn't it? A quick painless way to success? This is so clear that an elementary student will possess the skills to achieve anything in their life.

Seriously he is.

I didn't think so at first but he worked me over for hours until I snapped. I ended up getting 3 sequined beads and a shower cap...He got the keys to my car and my undying affection. Yeah, he's that good.

I much prefer the audio tapes to the book.

Translates better I feel for this subject.
