Susan Ford Collins’ out-of-the-box idea to study the skills of highly successful people was met with skepticism, but the concept has led to the crafting of her Technology of Success series. The first book in the series is entitled The Joy of Success: 10 Essential Skills for Getting the Success You Want. It dissects these 10 skills and explains why they are not only recommended, but necessary to accomplish a healthy, balanced, successful existence. The book emphasizes the importance of outlining, and implementing our dream within the parameters of where we are and evaluating and visualizing where we want to be. The author explains how the past influences our present thoughts, actions, and perceptions of ourselves, often holding us back from accomplishing the goals we set out to attain.  The author points out the factors that must be removed from our lives, both externally and internally, and the ways that we need to harness the support and expertise of others. She talks about the speed, or gears, with which we should proceed with our aspirations and the necessity of switching to faster or slower gears at times in order to move forward. I found this book helpful in facilitating evaluation of my own future plans and others with whom I will be engaging in a new project. The author writes with a style that is easy to follow, punctuating her points with personal stories of success and failure. I would recommend The Joy of Success to anyone who seeks sound advice on ways to advance in a competitive world. I received an ecopy of this book from the publisher through Fred St Laurent of the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

   *Book Description*      Susan Ford Collins made a point to, instead of studying people that "got it wrong", she wanted to study the people that "got it right". You know, those annoyingly successful people that seem to have everything going for them? Obviously, not everyone's lives are perfect but they seem to have hit on something so in this 10 step book on "The Joys of Success", Susan shows us lucky readers what she's found.                                                                                 *What I liked* Okay. This one is another of those books that is just a  tad bit outside of my comfort zone. It's a really good book, informative, to the point, and easy to read. Susan opens our eyes to what she's found in a way that is helpful to people without shouting at them that they do everything wrong. (Because, really, do we really need all that drama? ; ) I also liked her cover...again, to the point.                                                                                     *What I didn't like* The only thing that I personally had an issue with is that I just wasn't into it. Informative books are like Amish books, Mysteries, and biographies...You really have to have a want to read that book at that particular time or it is just going to seem to drag like a school textbook. (Geometry :p) All that to say, this is a great book if a book on success is what your looking for...if not wait until it is because Susan's book can impact your view of success but not if you aren't truly interested in reading the book.                                                                                                       *My Rating*            I give The Joy of Success... 4 stars!                               *Why my rating is what it is* My rating is four stars because while the book is very informative and well written, those of you looking for a strictly Christian point of view aren't going to get exactly what you're looking for in this book. Susan uses a point of view to bring everyone in but it may not appeal to those of you looking for a serious "just Christian" point of view.  *I received this book from Susan Ford Collins and in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts were my own and I was not compensated in any other way.
