In Ready When You Are: Cecil B. DeMille's Ten Commandments for Success, some of DeMille's life lessons are shared. The book echoes of the author's previous book so if you already read that one, some of the stories will be repeats for you. Don't be put off the by the grainy picture on the cover of this book. This book really contains an excellent message. Each of the chapters ends with a meaningful "commandment " for success. Although most of the "commandments" are common sense, I liked the way they were tied in with DeMille's personal stories. This is a quick read that would be great as a devotion in a small group setting or as a meditation message at church. If you are a public speaker, this would be a great resource to use as reference material. Ready When You Are is a book that would be an excellent choice to take on a short flight or another time when you have a few minutes to read. It can be read cover-to-cover in an hour or so, and the message will stay with you.
I received a copy of this book to review. The opinions are 100% mine.

What if a legendary director who invented Hollywood offered his personal secrets to great achievement?
Well this is the premise of the new book Ready When You are by Robert Hammond. Cecil Demille was known as the man who invented Hollywood. With the support of his wife, and the financial backing of 2 men, and 5000, h headed to California to make motion pictures. temporally, leaving his wife and child behind, he followed a dream. While he did fall into the trap that those creative types tend to fall into while living the Hollywood live, he removed and went back to a spiritual way of thinking. He, subsequently, went on to make many groundbreaking films, which included The 10 Commandments in 1923 among many others. DeMille's wisdom, success, and wealth increased beyond imagination. In today's terms he would be said to be a billionaire.
The book is broken into 10 commandments. The commandments are explained in about a page or two using an example or short story from DeMille's life. The author points out the small things that get lost in life that make people a success, like "Let your life continually be filled with a sense of amazement"
The book closes with an appendix of more information about the life of Cecil DeMille. It goes more in-depth about specifics of his life and achievements.
Ready When You Are is a wonderful book to help you realize habits of successful and effective people and hot to add them to your thinking.
The 11th Commandment: Buy this book!. Amazing distillation of spiritual inspiration and practical self-help combined with film history and poignant stories about the visionary director Cecil B. DeMille. More than just another self-help book, but a life-changing catalyst and eye-opening process for transformation and encouragement.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
