Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Van de Mark, in his 25 years of interviewing for CNN, discovered that some people were not just successful but exemplary. He studied modern high achievers who were also beloved characters, found 19 shared personality traits, and integrated his findings with the models of Abraham Maslow. In this distinctive book, he focuses on each particular trait and gives an example of someone who possesses it; in the "Integrity" chapter, Warren Buffett, and in "Empathetic," Charles Schwab. Many of his examples are not household names but are as inspiring as the celebrities. An essential read for those wanting to improve themselves and the world.
