Publishers Weekly

Lowe, cofounder and executive vice president of Get Motivated Inc., producer of the world's largest business seminars, shares a system for motivating yourself and others based on an eight-year study conducted with more than 100,000 people. Identifying drive as the single greatest key to success in every area of life, the author investigates its origins, concluding that everyone is hardwired with a specific motivational pattern, or DNA, and that anyone can nurture and harness its potential in themselves, their children and co-workers. The author explores the motivational value of money and relationships, and distills lessons from such high achievers as Jerry Lewis, Colin Powell, George Foreman, Joe Montana and Mother Teresa. A substantial section on raising positive, focused children sheds light on the phases of childhood and correlating motivators at each stage. Full of practical tools and techniques (including a useful "Goal Achievement Blueprint"), this refreshing and inspirational book is sure to keep readers on a path to self-realized, self-motivated success.

Library Journal

Lowe, who went from dealing drugs to advising five presidents, knows something about motivation. Through years of research and interviews, her team (Get Motivated Inc.) developed a model of motivational "DNA"-the drives, needs, and awards that inspire individuals to succeed. In a Myers-Briggs style, Lowe demonstrates how readers can make the most of their own motivators and those of others. A useful, illuminating way of applying type to understanding oneself; recommended for all public libraries.
