Book Summary

Success both drives and confounds people from all walks of life, and this valuable handbook at last reveals the true power and meaning of this goal for us all.

Chérie Carter-Scott learned the rules of success firsthand: she built her management consulting firm to serve hundreds of clients worldwide, including IBM and GTE.

Careful not to define success as financial prosperity, Carter-Scott eloquently encourages readers to realize their own goals and dreams, not society's vision for them.
