Why Jimmy Recommends It:

In typical Ken Blanchard fashion, a fictional story is used to drive home the major points. This book helped me transform my thought processes to achieve control of my own thoughts before attempting to influence others. Success is defined in your own terms and Blanchard and co-authors point out the easily implemented strategies to achieve a greater awareness of your current status and to grow from that point
