Whether you are at work or at home, you are probably being asked to do more with less. We often become consumed with what doesn't really matter, and spend far too much of our precious time on what doesn't even count. In Simple Is the New Smart, Dr. Rob Fazio shows you how to block out the static so you can turn up the volume on the right information and accelerate your path to success.

In an engaging, conversational style, Dr. Fazio offers success strategies that can be used the moment you stop reading. The focus is on helping you help yourself by learning easy-to-read and easy-to-apply techniques that will help you get the edge in business and in life. You will:
