Beating the Success Trap: Negotiating Your Own Path to Success 3rd Edition
Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
"A guide to rethinking the meaning of success that may well resonate in these financially difficult times. Brodow's diagnosis of an all-too-common personal dissatisfaction is convincing, and his prescriptions are well grounded in both basic psychology and common sense."
"I highly, highly, highly, highly (did I say highly? Yep. I'll say it again...), HIGHLY, recommend this book. It's mainly about how people spend their lives constructing things they don't want, and don't need, only to cut themselves off from their actual personal selves and dreams. It will wake you up and make you remember who you are and where you want to be."
The Quill of Deana Zhollis
"This book has the one thing people are looking for in their quest for success...Answers!"
Jeffrey Gitomer, author of The Little Red Book of Selling
"Brodow has written a must read for everyone who feels like they are on a fast-moving treadmill -- and can't seem to get off."
Marjorie Brody, author of Career Magic: A Woman's Guide to Reward & Recognition
"A MUST READ for everyone, the earlier in their career the better. It shows people how to focus on what really makes them happy and fulfilled."
Dr. Tony Alessandra, author of The New Art of Managing People
"Brodow challenges the traditional idea of success and provides a fresh look at just how to rethink the meaning of success. I very much enjoyed this book. It's provocative and makes you think about your life."
Jane Ackerman, Readers Exchange Newsletter
"Full of thoughtful advice and illustrative anecdotes on everything from personal finance to career choice to business negotiation, Brodow's earnest and enthusiastic book will have you happily reassessing your life."
From the Author
If you don't define success it will define you! This is the most personal of all my books as it reflects one of my most persistent traits: I have always been compelled to create my own version of success. This is a powerful message that I am pleased to share with readers. The system does not want you to succeed on your terms but you can prevail if you have the fortitude. Beating the Success Trap will help you.

on abuse alone is worth the price of the book. If you're happy and contented with your life then pass it by
but if you want to change and try to follow your own bliss then there's no better place to start than
with Ed's book. BTST is more than a guide to finding a more satisfying career.. It's really a road map
for turning an unhappy life into a happy one. I recommend this book to everyone who wants a deeper
understanding of the life they're leading. The wisdom contained within these pages is sure to make you
a better person.
We recently went through a mid-life crisis over job and relationship issues and by a stroke of luck I happened upon this insightful self-help book. Thank you Mr. Brodow. It is clear that the author has lived through every life challenge described in the book. He shares his wisdom accumulated over years of his own struggles to find a meaningful life for himself. I liked the clarity in which he describes the "success trap" and how external influences prevent us from doing what we want with our own lives. I also liked his description of our "abuse-based thinking" and how we tend to put up with people who are rooting for us to fail. Brodow makes no bones about advising us to hang around with people who are affectionate. This is not some la-di-da new age book. It is a must read for anyone who is trying to figure out what their life is about.
