There’s no one else who can develop the potential greatness that lies inside you. But, as she explains, moderation won’t cut it. The key is to go extreme! (Daniel H.

From the Back Cover
As a child, Sarah Robb O’Hagan felt destined to become a champion, but her early efforts at sports, in school, and in music failed to reveal a natural superstar. Unwilling to settle for average, she learned through a series of dramatic successes and epic failures to follow her own extremely personal path to success.
Sarah climbed the corporate ladder at Virgin Atlantic, Nike, Gatorade, and Equinox—also becoming a wife, mother, and endurance athlete-—and though in her twenties she was fired twice, in her thirties she led the turnaround of a $5 billion Gatorade sports drink business. Her approach has stemmed from personal experience and inspiration from the band of highly accomplished “Extremers” she met along the way: entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, TV personalities, an Olympic champion downhill skier, a former secretary of state, and even a world-famous tattoo artist. These Extremers helped her recognize that success doesn’t come from conforming, hiding weaknesses, or reaching some preplanned destination. Instead, the Extreme You approach is to continuously develop yourself—warts and all—to the max, and to tap your true potential and find your own greatness.
In every challenging situation, personal or professional, we feel pressure to conform to accepted norms. But doing so comes with heavy costs: passions stifled, talents ignored, and opportunities squelched. The bolder choice is to embrace Extreme You: to bring all that is distinctive and relevant about yourself to everything you do, and to bring out the Extreme in the people and the culture around you.
Inspiring, practical, and laugh-out-loud funny, Extreme You is Sarah’s training program for developing the drive, originality, and fierce attitude to become the best version of you.

It's easy to assume that successful women in business and life have some kind of EZPass. Sarah Robb O'Hagan did not. Her life was peppered with early losses and setbacks. Her drive, humility and humanity propelled her forward , zig zagging, through her early career.
She tells heart stopping/career killing stories, including one of an all nighter drinking and dancing that had her sleeping through her first meeting with the the big boss the first day of her big new job.
Hard to imagine how she pulls through, yet, she does. Her honesty , her "girlfriend next door" candor, and her uncompromising standards of excellence for herself and those around her ,make her immensely likable. She makes this a great, inspiring , fast read . It's the perfect antidote to feeling like you can't break through, you will never recover from a firing , or you cannot have a version of "it all".
Robb O'Hagan has a killer career, a committed husband in a good marriage and 3 kids. She doesn't ever claim it's easy .. but she shows it's possible.
The author's story was incredible too! Goes to show that there is seldom a success story where someone shoots to the top from the get go. The persistence and grit to do what she has done is incredible. However, the best part is the actionable advice. Each chapter has a theme and a lesson of how to become an extremer and although I've only just finished the book I can already feel the difference!

But if you want to write your own new 'Extreme Life Story' - buy Sarah's "Extreme You". You will not be disappointed!
I'm rarely writing any book reviews and I've only read two chapters so far, but I've already felt compelled to share my opinion with other readers.
This is not one of "Get inspired and feel good" books... This is "Get Fired Up and do Kick Ass" book!
If the rest of the book is as good as first two chapters - this will be one of the best motivational books I've ever read!
