    Shave Years off of Your Learning Curve

    As of this review, I do not know the author personally however after painfully learning over the years much of what was so generously shared here, I can assure you that after carefully studying this book, this guy definitely knows what he¿s talking about. This book can literally save you thousands in misspent time and money by providing you with a high-level road map for carving out your space in the business world. I do wish I had this book 5 years ago! The only negative with this book is that although I¿m truly grateful for what the author did choose to include, the book left me wanting a tad bit as each chapter could easily have been extended to be its own book. Let¿s hope for many more follow-up books from this author in the years to come.

    Clearly a fresh approach to marketing AND life.

    There are a lot of self-help/empowering books out there. And there should be. Ordinary people need to know that they are quite capable of extraordinary things. (And it's actually pretty easy.) Different people will react differently to a given message, usually, but I am here to testify that Ken MacArthur's brilliant AND reachable writings in his new book, 'Impact...' will truly have a profound 'impact' on anyone who picks it up. There is a down-home, comfortable feel to the writing style, and certainly an inspiring wealth of information for anyone who wants to believe they CAN make a difference. This book is a call to action. It is a call to believe. It is also a collection of real-life examples of ordinary people doing- you guessed it- extraordinary things. Everyone wants to make a difference in the world. Let this extraordinary author show you some amazing strategies used by some of the world's most successful people. Then go create your OWN impact!
