Format: Hardcover
Talk about standing out from the crowd: this book itself does just that. Authors Podesta and Gatz have fashioned an innovative format book that is entertaining and thought-provoking. Each page represents a "thought unit" that will help you to see things in a different way, or to break out of ruts. The color illustrations, photos, and graphics will keep you going.

Format: Hardcover
i enjoy watching connie podesta's videos, she can really connect with viewers and has a lot of great advice. but this book is just a bunch of picture quotes of sayings... i didnt find the book effective at all... its almost hard to concentrate reading it, cause your eyes are jumping all over the place and when switching topics every 10 seconds i wasnt able to retain anything... i was really looking forward to enjoying this book and learning skills from it, but i kinda wish i never bought it... sorry connie and jean, im just being honest... keep up with your videos connie great job on those!

I heard Connie Podesta at a speaking engagement and promptly returned home and purchased her latest book. 10 Ways to stand out in a Crowd is terrific! Separated into 10 separate and stand alone 'books', each is relevant and inspiring. I would definitely recommend that you purchase and devour this book if you are interested in going beyond success to true excellence. Loved it.
