The Joy of Success by Susan Ford Collins

Hello again everyone!! I was already here this a.m. with a children's book so this afternoon/evening I decided on an adult non-fiction.

                                                                    *About The Author*
Susan Ford Collins is the author of The Technology of Success Series, the powerful leadership system that has been used in more than 3,000 major corporations, universities and organizations across the globe since 1985.

The Technology of Success started when Susan was a young researcher at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) with a radical idea--what more could we learn if we studied healthy, Highly Successful People (HSPs), and not just ill and dysfunctional ones? Are HSPs using skills the rest of us are missing, or misusing?

Over the next two decades, Susan Ford Collins shadowed successful people from all walks of life and identified ten skills they were using consistently but unconsciously. With the help of her business partner Richard Israel--himself a highly accomplished author and coach--she shaped her research into a powerhouse program focusing on the 10 Success Skills.
                                                         *Book Description*
  Susan Ford Collins made a point to, instead of studying people that "got it wrong", she wanted to study the people that "got it right". You know, those annoyingly successful people that seem to have everything going for them? Obviously, not everyone's lives are perfect but they seem to have hit on something so in this 10 step book on "The Joys of Success", Susan shows us lucky readers what she's found.

  *What I liked*
Okay. This one is another of those books that is just a  tad bit outside of my comfort zone. It's a really good book, informative, to the point, and easy to read. Susan opens our eyes to what she's found in a way that is helpful to people without shouting at them that they do everything wrong. (Because, really, do we really need all that drama? ; ) I also liked her cover...again, to the point.
  *What I didn't like*
The only thing that I personally had an issue with is that I just wasn't into it. Informative books are sometimes hard to get into, but like this one, valuable so you should still read the book. All that to say, this is a great book if a book on success is what your looking for...if not wait until it is because Susan's book can impact your view of success but not if you aren't truly interested in reading the book.

  *My Rating*
  I give The Joy of Success...

4 stars!

  *Why my rating is what it is*

My rating is four stars because while the book is very informative and well written,it isn't a must read unless this is what you're looking for.

*I received this book from Susan Ford Collins and in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts were my own and I was not compensated in any other way.

                                                   *Where to buy it*

                                                           Barnes & Noble
