Cramer, a psychologist who works as a coach, consultant, and trainer, presents a six-step program employing analysis, creative thinking, and communication skills to proactively accomplish more. The book is filled with detailed charts, stories, and quotations of well-known people who explain the process and how to use it. Cramer believes that by approaching issues with creativity and a positive frame of mind, successful solutions can be achieved. Her points make interesting but not quick reading. Every step requires self-analysis and planning, and an action plan for overcoming obstacles, which asks readers to check "attitude" at the door and adopt a realistic perspective on themselves and their outlook. Good, practical guidance for those ready to make changes. Eileen Hardy
