Adjunct professor Holladay (Georgetown Univ. Sch. of Business) knows personally the emptiness that often comes with traditional perceptions of success and proposes a holistic approach to defining and reaching achievement in life and business. He introduces eight practices based on research and other leaders’ experiences that will help readers live their own stories, regularly express gratitude, define success and failure for themselves, integrate new goals into their lives, and leave a legacy for others. Most applicable are the questions for contemplation, giving readers an opportunity to assess their lives thus far, and make adjustments if need be.
VERDICT A valuable tool for reflection that can be used by readers from all walks of life.
