Hitting Your Stride: Your Work Your Way was a required read for our class. I’m thankful for that. I found Nan S. Russell’s approach to "winning at working" is honest, interesting and promising. Reading her book was like chatting with a friend as she shared herself through her personal stories covering over 20 years in management. The Reflective Exercises were thought provoking. Nan S. Russell’s ability to engage another person’s interest through her written words reflects how well she writes. However, it is her knowledge and grasp of the nuances of the subject matter that intrigues a reader. The ability to make a change may only be a ripple in your life today, but the effect is long lasting. Hitting Your Stride: Your Work Your Way, has the ability to change your life if you are open to being authentic. Nan S. Russell’s personal insight is reflected in a straightforward manner making this an easy read – and a book I’ll be reading again.

I enjoyed Hitting Your Stride. Nan Russell tells many stories about her time in the professional world during the entire text which brings it alive and makes it more easy to read versus just an instruction on how to be the best you can be in the business world. I do have to admit that I was not very excited about reading this book because I thought that it was going to be dry and not very exciting but in the end I did enjoy the book. I marked pages that had insightful thoughts that I could use again and again on my own journey to the best career for me. The best part for me was Nan talking about being born in Montana and needing to move back and the way she and her husband made their way back. I too grew up in Montana and have now returned after an almost 20 year absence. I have never felt more whole. I recommend this book for anyone in the business world.

We were asked to read this book as part of our Human Resource class; I will admit at first I was very skeptical because seriously how many times can a person read these books that are supposed to be an inspiration but ultimately kinda make you feel like a failure. Once I picked up it up and started reading it I couldn't put it down--I think it is just really readable and relatable; that is what I think makes it so appealing. Was it any new, life-changing information-no but it was all really good reminders that being a hard worker is not a bad thing; success is what you make of it and even at work always be yourself. This book is valuable for anyone who just needs a pick me up at work, whether it is a short sentence, a paragraph or chapter; each little piece has a nice offering of hope. While I am sure there are faults in Hitting Your Stride it serves as a great book for awakening the inner work soul; I look forward to reading it many more times!

Reading for me was always pleasurable. I love to read mystery, horror, romance, spiritual, and so-on. However, I have never read anything like Nan Russell’s Hitting Your Stride. I have read m fair share of self-help books out of interests and when forced. To be honest, I hated every single one of them. How can one person know all there is to know and order the reader to do a specific thing if they was the desired outcome. We are all different and we all have different methods of success. The way Nan Russell writes her book is unlike any other “self-help” book. It actually is not a self-help book at all. I would call this piece of work and inspiring book. It makes the reader see in different ways than before and inspires them to look further into their lives and change the little things. It doesn’t say “If you want to be a millionaire, read a bunch of knowledge books and go to seminars, and then buy a puppy…” No, this book inspires people of all different natures to do what’s best in their own way. Buying a puppy might be great for me, but harmful to someone else. Nan Russell’s book conveys that.
I always thought to be a professional in the “work world” you just had to be your best and work your hardest. But, Nan Russell’s book changed that view. There is so much that goes into the melting pot of a professional. The stories you tell, your attendance, and the way you speak to others are all examples of what Nan Russell explains in her book. Throughout most of the book I already knew what Nan Russell was saying. She simply reminded me of the nature. But it was the placed inspirations and quotes and the real-life stories that made this book so interesting. I would find myself running into the living from to read passages to my husband because it gave me such a lifted feeling.

I bought Hitting Your Stride for my nephew who graduated from college last year and can't seem to find his niche in the corporate world yet. I read it before I gave it to him, there is a lot of wonderful information written in a fun and engaging way for any young person starting their career. Ms. Russell has done a fabulous job using many interesting scenarios. I highly recommend this book for all young people and their parents, it gives you a new outlook on what your children are facing and how they can handle these new challenges. Times have changed, that's for sure.
