Biography

While Jack Canfield himself may not necessarily be a household name, it's very likely that you have heard of his famed Chicken Soup for the Soul series and nearly as likely that you have at least one of them sitting on your very own bookshelf! Having got his start as an inspirational speaker, Canfield's own story is nothing less than inspirational.

Jack Canfield had been traveling around delivering key note speeches and organizing workshops to help audiences build their self-esteem and maximize their potential when he had an in-flight brainstorm that changed his life. While flying home from a gig, Canfield realized that the very same advice he had been delivering during his in-person addresses could potentially form the basis of a book. Canfield used inspirational stories he'd gleaned over the years as the basis of his speeches, and he thought it would be a terrific idea to gather together 101 inspirational stories and anthologize them in a single volume. Upon returning home, Canfield approached friend and author Mark Victor Hansen about his concept. Hansen agreed it was a great idea, and the two men set about finding a publisher. Believe it or not, the mega-selling series was not an easy sell to publishers. "We were rejected by 123 publishers all told," Canfield told Shareguide.com. "The first time we went to New York, we visited with about a dozen publishers in a two day period with our agent, and nobody wanted it. They all said it was a stupid title, that nobody bought collections of short stories, that there was no edge -- no sex, no violence. Why would anyone read it?"

Canfield wisely practiced what he preached -- and persisted. Ultimately, he and Hansen sold the first Chicken Soup for the Soul book to a small press based in Deerfield Beach, Florida, called Health Communications. The rest, as they say, is history. There are currently 80 million copies of the Chicken Soup books in print, with subjects as varied as Chicken Soup For the Horse Lover's Soul and Chicken Soup For the Prisoner's Soul. Canfield and Hansen ranked as the top-selling authors of 1997 and are multiple New York Times bestsellers. Most important of all, the inspirational stories they have gathered in their many volumes have improved the lives of countless readers.

This year, expect to see Canfield's name gracing the covers of such titles as Chicken Soup For the Scrapbooker's Soul, Chicken Soup For the Mother and Son Soul, and Chicken Soup For the African American Woman's Soul. He and Hansen have also launched the all-new "Healthy Living" series and 8 titles in that series have already been released this year. There is also the fascinating You've GOT to Read This Book!, in which Canfield compiles personal accounts by 55 people each discussing a book that has changed his or her life. The most compelling of these may be the story of young entrepreneur Farrah Gray, who read Deepak Chopra's The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success at the age of 11 and made his first million dollars at the age of 14!

With no sign of slowing down, Canfield continues to be an inspiration to millions, who fortunately refused to give up when it seemed as though he would never even get his first book published. "Mark and I are big believers in perseverance," he said. "If you have a vision and a life purpose, and you believe in it, then you do not let external events tell you what is so. You follow your internal guidance and follow your bliss, as Joseph Campbell used to say."

Good To Know

Canfield is the founder of two California based self-esteem programs, "Self-Esteem Seminars" in Santa Barbara and "The Foundation For Self Esteem" in Culver City.

Writing the first Chicken Soup book was a lot more daunting than Canfield expected. After the first three years of research, he and Mark Victor Hansen had only compiled 68 stories -- 33 tales shy of their goal of 101 stories.

Along with co-writing dozens of full-length books, Canfield also publishes a free biweekly newsletter called Success Strategies.

Some fun and fascinating outtakes from our interview with Canfield:

"My inspiration for writing comes from my passion for teaching others how to live more effective lives. I started out as a history teacher in an all-black inner city high school in Chicago, graduated to a teacher trainer, then psychotherapist, then trainer of therapists, then large group transformational trainer and then a writer and keynote speaker. All along the way, my desire was to make a difference, to help people live more fulfilling lives. That is what I still do today. Most people don't know this but I was not a good writer in college. I got a C in composition. Nobody would have ever believed I would grow up to be a bestselling author."

"I play guitar, and I am learning to play the piano. I love movies and some TV shows. My favorites are Six Feet Under, Grey's Anatomy, House and Lost. I love to play Scrabble, poker and backgammon with my in-laws, nieces and nephews. We really get into it. I love to travel. I have been to 25 countries and try to add two or three new ones every year."

    Written by, Kate Oliver, MSW, LCSW-C In my first collaboratio

    Written by, Kate Oliver, MSW, LCSW-C

    In my first collaboration with Hay House as a reviewer, I am excited to share my thoughts on a book by Jack Canfield and Pamela Bruner, Tapping Into Ultimate Success: How to Overcome Any Obstacle and Skyrocket Your Results. Because this is my first book review as part of Hay House's "book nook" program,* I have to admit, I wanted to show you all what a serious book critic I am by finding some kind of major fault or gap in this book. While I have a few things I might have done differently, they are all minor and are more subjective really.

    I picked this book to review because, while I took a 3 hour course on tapping (also known as Emotional Freedom Technique) and have effectively used it in my practice and personally, I wanted to know more. What I found was that while the book focuses on tapping techniques, it actually combines three methods I use with my clients routinely, 1. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique or tapping), 2. Internal Family Systems Work (mainly connected to inner child work), and 3. Affirmations, with tapping being the star of the show.

    This book is chocked full of an incredible amount of helpful, usable information that I do, in my heart, believe could be life transforming for anyone that takes the time to learn and utilize the information. The book comes with a DVD as well that is complementary to the text, and I do believe that when you are learning to tap using the methods, it is infinitely helpful to have the demonstrations on the DVD. On it, the authors selected meaningful topics to help participants work through that are fairly universal to most people and you can get help and practice by tapping right along with the video. One critique I might have is that in the book, the authors suggest that you will be able to supply your own words to describe your issues, but on the DVD, the authors have the demonstration participants repeat after them. I would have liked to see a demonstration where the participant was guided through the process of chosing their own words. If you are reading the book, I would encourage you not to be intimidated about finding just the right word choice. If you are worried about finding words, perhaps you can use that as your first fear or worry to tap about once you get started.

    I do have a few other suggestions for anyone who is planning on purchasing (or winning) this book:

    1. Do not expect to breeze through the book and video in a weekend. I have actually taken well over a month to read it for review. I hurried myself through it a bit because I wanted to write the review and will start back from the beginning now that I am done. I plan on working myself through about five to ten minutes worth of reading and tapping each evening as part of my self-care routine. At that pace, I will probably finish the book for the second time in about six months. I do believe that will be the pace for most people. I do not want to deter you from picking up this book however, as I do believe much of the work is amazing and with literally only a few moments, that may or may not have some mild discomfort, and using the tapping techniques described in the book, you can transform old habits and beliefs and create a new and much happier life for yourself.

    2. Stick with the recommendation of the authors to keep notes about your progress. The issue I have found with tapping in my practice, and which the authors describe in the book, is that it works so well that there are a good number of people who forget the problem they came in for was actually a real problem to begin with.

    3. Watch the videos and get a tapping buddy if possible to help you stick with it. A tapping buddy can also help if you worry about pin-pointing the correct words.

    4. If you are having a hard time following through with tapping, or you have difficulty finding words to describe the issues you want to work through, I would suggest you seriously consider getting a therapist who is familiar with tapping. Getting a therapist to help work through these issues does not mean the book is not right for you. I believe having the book and going to therapy will shorten the time it takes you to feel better and that the therapy and the tapping will each enhance the other. I have already recommended the book as an adjunct to therapy for several of my adult clients.

    I know, if you have ever seen tapping, it looks so simple, and may even seem silly or, when you think about all the time it has taken for you to get through the problem you have, it can seem impossible that a little tapping on your body in specific places will change how you think and feel about issues. All I can say to that is that you need to try it and see.

    *For "Book Nook" reviews, I receive a fee copy of the book in exchange for reviewing it on my site. I give my honest opinion of each book and I do not receive any further compensation.

    Interesting Technique to Success

    'Tapping Into Ultimate Success' was really an interesting book. The concept behind it is using the Meridian Tapping technique to aid a person to overcome fears,limiting thoughts and beliefs that may be blocking them from finding a successful route to achieving their desired goals. The book is written by Pamela Bruner, who has successfully used this technique to build a million dollar business in three years and by Jack Canfield who is best known for his co-authored book of the 'Chicken Soup For The Soul' series and his books and teachings on guiding others to success in life and business. The book also comes with a DVD that helps illustrates the Meridian Tapping techniques on portions of the body known as the energy meridians of acupuncture. This technique is favored by some as it is felt that the process takes less time to eliminate negative thoughts and energies then other methods which take more time to eliminating walls built by limiting thoughts and beliefs accumulated in life. The book is well laid out, interesting and backed up by examples of people's experiences that have used this process. Tapping is very therapeutic and opens the mind to realizations of limiting believes normally accepted in the past. This realization then makes it possible to over come them and accept truer thoughts that would lead to a more positive and powerful approach to life. I would recommend reading the book first before watching the DVD. My son and I watched the DVD first and were skeptical at first about the process. While reading the book I then was able to understand how this technique was created and the benefits that came because of them. Unlike most books, 'Tapping Into Ultimate Success' does not just act like a map that one needs to follow and then rely on time and their own energy to accomplish it. This book is a map, compass, and supplies the reader will need to get them from point A to point B in a shorter time span in order to overcome blocks in life that may be limiting a person to reach their ultimate potential. Although some may label this book as weird I feel it offers valuable lessons to those on the path to finding their success in life and their business. I think it especially offers valuable methods to use to work through fears, negativity, and bad experiences of the past. This tapping process is being used successfully by those suffering from severe traumas and those afflicted with PTSD. FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product.
