More About the Author

Brian Klemmer was an international consultant and speaker whose seminars have been attended by tens of thousands of participants in Japan, Canada, the Philippines, Europe, and throughout the United States. He was truly an entertaining and effective speaker, facilitator and master of group dynamics.

Brian was founder of Klemmer & Associates which has produced results in companies such as ITT Sheraton, Hewlett Packard, American Suzuki Motor Corporation, as well as direct sales companies. He authored the best-selling book If How To's were Enough, We'd all be Skinny, Rich and Happy, which discusses many of the key principles and concepts that are the core of his company and his phenomenal, results-producing seminar series. His most recent book, The Compassionate Samurai outlines the ten traits of a samurai and was recently named a #1 Wall Street Journal Business Book.

On April 7, 2011, Brian passed away as the result of a torn carotid artery. When Brian Klemmer founded Klemmer & Associates, his dream was to create an army of compassionate Samurai to make a difference in this world. The greatest way that those who know and loved Brian can honor him is by stepping into that role. Brian Klemmer was a teacher, mentor, and great leader, and will be sorely missed.

Format: Paperback
CEO of Klemmer & Assoc., Brian Klemmer gives useful advice on how to increase intimacy, sales, and production. He uses life-altering ideas to help people become more bold, sustain change, stop feeling trapped, and how to stop being a victim to your feelings. Without cliches or false views of reality, this book will not leave you the way it found you. The book gives you "ten lessons to coach yourself and others to peak performance." The first chapter, "What The Facts Really Mean", alone changed the way I approach situations. It gave me the tools to place correct meanings to past and current experiences.

Learn about the Victim-Persecutor-Rescuer game many of us have been unknowingly playing for most of our lives and consider the possibilities of ditching those programmed behaviours in order to maybe be more free than before when you were ensnared in that rut of bad behaviours and choices. If you have contact with people, even if you are a lone hermit on an island, read this book. It may help you deal better with how you relate to, interact with or "re-act" to people/others.
