Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Negotiation-expert Fox presents a road map for understanding our inner self and then avoiding common traps as we interact with the world around us in business and everyday life. She explains her seven-step approach, including “The Big Four Team” in all of us: the “Dreamer,” our internal CEO who creates possibilities, and sets strategic vision; the “Thinker,” our internal CFO who clarifies perspectives, analyzes data, and manages risk; the “Lover,” our internal VP of HR who cares about people, feels emotions, and manages; and the “Warrior,” our internal COO who brings about performance, takes action, and reaches goals. The author also describes our “Transformers,” the inner “Lookout,” who signals what is going on inside us (feelings and impulses); the inner “Captain,” who coordinates the Big Four and chooses our best next move; and the “Voyager” in all of us, who seeks growth through new experiences and opportunities. Fox reports that the ability to “lead yourself” is today’s new leadership requirement, and this timely book is a must-read for library patrons interested in all levels of management. --Mary Whaley

This is a tedious book that repeats its main point again and again. It takes 389 pages to state the obvious:we think of ourselves as a single integrated person;we are not, as Shakespeare understood;thus, we need to look at the types of selves we have inside us and learn to work with and harmonize them. Good diagrams on the types. There are lots of better books, including "Inner Excellence" by Jim Murphy. Also, the book's ongoing example of how she learned to understand the selves---her marriage to a Dutchman and move to Europe---is indulgence. Example:"I had to learn that the Dutch take their coffee seriously, and there would be no simple coffee maker in my new house, taught me a lot. " Take a pass.

When I first looked at this book, I saw that it was written by someone involved in the Harvard Project on Negotiation. I've read some books from authors there (including a few by William Ury who wrote the foreward for this book):

Getting to Yes: Negotiating Agreement Without Giving In
Getting Past No: Negotiating with Difficult People
The Power of a Positive No: Save The Deal Save The Relationship and Still Say No
Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most

All those books helped me be better in business. They helped me with techniques and approaches to negotiate. While they often seemed to promise more than they delivered, they did deliver a lot.

This book delivers little. It might be good as a self-help book that you read for inspiring personal stories and anecdotes, if you like that sort of thing (and I sometimes do). But the author promises in the book's subtitle to deliver a "Breakthrough Method for Leading, Living, and Lasting Change." If there was a method in the book, I missed it. And I was looking pretty carefully. There's no method there.

The author talks about the "Big Four" in all of us: our inner Dreamer, Thinker, Lover and Warrior. We need to "Balance Our Profile" by letting each of those aspects of our inner selves participate in our personalities.

The author claims that people can approach problems through four personas; Dreamer, Thinker, Lover and Warrior, which are overseen by three further characters; the Lookout, Captain and Voyager. Given the authors credentials I was hoping for some interesting original insights, however I found the content was longwinded, repetitive and a little derivative. In the authors schema, the book was written almost entirely with the Lovers voice, with no innovation (Dreamer), or actionable (Warrior) content and shallow analysis (Thinker). I think The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change is a much better book, with more actionable content and better tools for helping you bring about personal change.

Winning from Within: A Breakthrough Method for Lading, Living and Lasting Change by Erica Ariel Fox is a book about negotiation. Every day, whether we are aware of it or not we face a series of negotiations. Each of these effects other aspects of our lives. Fox combines Western psychology with principles from Eastern philosophy and shows various ways to balance our lives in that process in order to win or "gain mastery:.

I read a great number of self-help books. I have to say I was a little disappointed with this one in that the format was really rather scattered. The reflection questions and exercises really just were really not something I had a great deal of patience for and so I admit I skipped over them. I really wanted to like this book, but could not get into it.

I'm not sure how this is even possible, but trust me...it is! There is almost 400 pages worth of information here, and yet, there is 400 pages of very little insight. I feel this book is a great example of society today - people making promises in one breath, in another breath, they tell you how smart and fantastic they are, yet...that's all there is. All talk, no walk. If you have money and time to burn, pick up this book. If you only have a few bucks and a few hours, pick up ANY issue of Oprah magazine, because basically, this is an over - inflated self help magazine that, in the end, basically states we each have different sides to us, and that we should accept each side in order to lead a fulfilled, happy, life.
The only groundbreaking information in this book: Harvard is fast becoming a college that was once revered to one that is churning out alumni that line their big bank accounts promising people salvation through spiritual/self education. This is nothing more than part Napoleon Hill, part Joseph Campbell,and part Dale Carnegie. The author's constant praise of her achievements reminded me of Emerson's quote "The more he talked about his honor, the fast we counted our spoons."
Save yourself some spoons! Skip it.
