Every "road-to-success" book has some sort of gimmick that sets it apart from the many others in the genre. Chris J. Witting Jr.’s offering is a 21-day exercise regime designed to transform your personality, catapult you up the career ladder and pave over financial potholes. Witting asks readers to devote just a few minutes per day to his program, with each day devoted to a different aspect of getting your life on track. Naturally, that’s a lot of ground to cover. But the inherent drama of the countdown to the end of the three-week cycle does keep your interest, thereby encouraging you to take the exercises seriously. And once you’ve taken that leap, the book does present some intriguing ideas on how to overcome inertia, simplify a cluttered life and harness your existing network of contacts. The instructions are easy to follow and the writing takes a pleasing, matter-of-fact tone. getAbstract recommends this book to anyone interested in personal improvement, especially those who have been left less than fulfilled after falling for other "successful" gimmicks.

  • How to enlist the help of others to attain your goals
