According to his Web site, Carter is a former banker turned exclusive mentor to “the very best of the very best,” and it’s his job “to assist them in their efforts to become even better.” In his first book, he democratizes his message in the hopes of helping readers “become the best version” of themselves through the pursuit of “BREAKTHROUGHs”— “self-directed life change that the changer regards as significant.” Carter walks readers through 20 possible BREAKTHROUGHs, which range from karmic admonitions to “do the right thing,” to element-based Chinese medicinal theories (think fire, earth, water, etc.) and methods of coping with failure. Many of them correspond in some way to the six spokes of Carter’s “Wheel of Life,” representing the personal, professional, physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental aspects of an individual. The book is overfull with neologisms, catchphrases, and aphorisms repackaged as supposedly sage insights, and Carter’s self-help system tends toward the baroque. (In addition to the 20 BREAKTHROUGHS and six spokes, there are 29 “Tools” and life is broken down into four parts.) Carter resists sharing anecdotes about his big-name clients, so readers will have to take him at his word when it comes to his successful track record—and whether his way is the right way. (Aug. 1)
From the Publisher
"Rather than going for a one-size-fits-all approach, Breakthrough is about being the best version of yourself you can be…if you buy only one self-help book this year, make it this one." —The Sunday Times, UK
The Sunday Times

“This is a brilliant book about how to be brilliant. With poignant stories and simple processes, David takes you through the key areas of your life and shows you how to break through the barriers that prevent you from being the very best you can be. I read it in one sitting, which is enough to realize I will have to use and re-use the book to reach my goals. Highly recommended.” —Kevin Murray, Chairman, The Good Relations Group — Kevin Murray

“In his wonderful first book, Breakthrough, David brings alive for readers the experience that his clients so enjoy while working one-on-one and face-to-face with him. The tools in the workbook are well thought through, comprehensive and thorough. Completion of the exercises will bring about a breakthrough for anyone who has read the book.” —Joan Shafer, former Chief Learning Officer, Merryck & Co — Joan Shafer

“David genuinely makes it easier for you to create breakthroughs rather than make them sound easier. That’s because David is a giver—he gives freely of his experiences and of himself, something that’s refreshingly different. As David himself puts it—”I have packed in 150 years of life into this book, though I am only 53.” It’s a must-read for anyone who wants to become better—and that’s everyone!” —Rajeev Suri, Chief Executive Officer of Liqwid Krystal India Limited — Rajeev Suri

“David knows his subject. He’s remarkably good at framing things and helping you make decisions. Not taking it off you but leaving it for you to resolve. David is excellent at facilitating the process to do that. David has a remarkable ability to understand people and to help them maximize their potential and opportunities, coming at it from their perspective.” —Nick Booth, Campaign Director, NSPCC Full Stop Appeal — Nick Booth

“Someone once said that if you don’t know where you’re going, you’re lost. With David’s mentoring, you’ll be able to figure out where you really want to go, how to get there and how to enjoy the journey.” —John Moore, Chairman of Gorkana Group — John Moore

“Half the battle to be a successful leader in an organization is to begin to know what you don’t know. David is very good at is helping you know what you don’t know.” —Simon Calver, CEO of Mothercare and former CEO of Lovefilm — Simon Calver

“David is unconventional, creative, non-linear. And he is a great example of what can be achieved in non-traditional ways.” —Vitaly Vasiliev, CEO, Gazprom Marketing & Trading — Vitaly Vasiliev

“I think everyone, regardless of their seniority, at one stage or another in their life might need a mentor. When it comes to very important changes in their life they would need that. David is a hard-working professional, a dedicated and passionate person. I saw the efforts and how tirelessly he works around the clock to make things happen.” —Elham Hassan, Chairman, Healthcorp Bahrain — Elham Hassan

“When David leaves people, he leaves behind something special. He becomes part of their mindset. They are continuously asking themselves, ‘What would David think about this?’ That’s a phenomenal gift he has.” —Alison Hutchinson, Chief Executive, Pennies Foundation — Alison Hutchinson

"David Carter is a master at helping people achieve breakthroughs in their lives. He is not simply a life coach or executive coach, nor just a mentor—he is The Mentor. Who has no agenda on your life except wanting you to become all you are capable of being? Sadly, most people don't have anyone like this in their life. David Carter is the best in the world at it." —Matthew Kelly, New York Times–bestselling author of The Dream Manager and The Rhythm of LifeMatthew Kelly
