Format: Hardcover
One of the many things I like about the books published by Simple Truths is how the advice, lessons and information is practical and reality-based. I especially liked this volume (The Top 2%: What it takes to reach the top in your profession).

This volume takes the most recent research into the qualities and principles it takes to reach the top 2% in whatever profession you have chosen. For those who do not understand the reality of life; the leaders and innovators who create the most, who produce the most, and who achieve the most in all professions are usually those in the top 2% of their particular profession. Not everyone desires to aim that high, but for those special few who have set their sights on getting to the top, this book will help you achieve your goal.

This book begins with an introduction explaining who the 2% are and then moves to providing the 17 principles of success that most of these leaders who have reached the top had in common. The basic model is the shape of a star. Each of the star points represents one area of success. S=Sense of purpose, T=Traits, A=Attitudes, R=Rapport with others, S=Skills.

The 144 pages detail each of the principles providing relevant advice and lessons that must be mastered if you intend to reach the top of your profession. There are also many beautiful photographs and inspiring quotes in this excellent book.

In conclusion, if you desire reach the top of your profession and are willing to live your life by the principles and philosophy taught in this book, you need to get a copy of this book for your personal library.

Was hoping for some in-depth, detailed information about the makeup, habits and breakthrough thinking of the top 2% in various industries or vocations. Instead, I got "Mickey Mouse has big ears", as it offered generalities written at a 5th grade level like, "...you have to set goals..." and "the top 2% exercise and get rest...".

I bought the book for my Kindle. The book is formatted to appear on the Kindle sideways. That is I have to turn theKindle on its side to read it. When that happens the print is to small for me to read and when I enlarge the print I lose part of the book. When I turn the page the print returns to its small format. I will buy the book in paperback but it is no good for kindle.

I am not sure why I never received my first book I ordered after paying for it. I had to order it a second time before I received the book. Can you tell me what happen to my first order.
