Book Reviews

‘”This book contains a ton of practical and easy-to-implement techniques and strategies for getting yourself to do whatever needs to be done” – Jack Canfield, co-author of “The Success PrinciplesTM" and the best selling “Chicken Soup for the Soul®” Series.

 

“For me personally, the measure of a great book is whether it inspires me to make changes. After reading an advanced copy of “The Power to Get things Done” I realised that I had invested a lot of money attending the HR Summit in Berlin in the middle of October and I still hadn’t followed up with calls or emails to many of the people I met. Using the strategies from your book, I did this follow up (and got the follow through glow by the way Chris) and was rewarded by two pieces of immediate business. It’s a book I highly recommend because just reading it changes your mindset.” – Nikki Owen, International award winning speaker and author of ‘Charismatic to the Core’.

 

“What a great book! Lots of real life examples that will cause most readers to say “That’s like me” or “I can relate to that!” I love practical tips that are simple and easy to apply, and this book contains plenty of them. I suggest you dive straight in, find something you like, create a new habit and start making a difference to your life straight away.”- Andy Gilbert, CEO,  Go MAD Thinking; bestselling author of 10 books including The Art of Making a Difference and the Thinking For Business Success podcast series

 

“Just imagine how much more successful you’d be if you could always count on being able to motivate yourself to do whatever you know you should do. “The Power to Get Things Done” can actually make that happen. Think of it as extremely practical, user-friendly rocket science! It’s filled with ideas that make sense and really work.” – Chris Crouch, Partner DME Leadership Development Consulting, Author of Getting Organized and Sifting

 

“I started reading this book with a sense of smugness. Having written three books and run my own business for twenty years, I’ve always had a penchant for getting things done — or so I thought. But as I read further, I realized how much I needed this book fifteen years ago! The authors do more than explain how and why we avoid doing what we should be doing. They provide easy-to-implement step-by-step techniques for overcoming inaction. In a world where distraction and procrastination are endemic, I believe that individuals in any profession who follow the lessons in this book will be rewarded with a dramatic increase in productivity and personal accomplishment. This is an important and well-written book, so get your own copy and guard it with your life!” – Paul du Toit, Managing Director,  Congruence Training Pty; author of You Can Present With Confidence and co-author of The Exceptional Speaker. 

 

“Finally a book that provides a clear road map for getting things done. This is a must read for every leader.”- Lenora Billings-Harris,  co-author of TRAILBLAZERS: How Top Business Leaders are Accelerating Results through Inclusion and Diversity; author of The Diversity Advantage: A Guide to Making Diversity Work.

 

“”The Power to Get Things Done” is an essential and vital handbook for achieving your goals. Chris Cooper and Steve Levinson have created a fantastic toolkit to give business people the edge in today’s hyper competitive marketplace.” –  Jeff B Cohen, Esq, Beverley Hills Attorney who as a child played Chunk in the Stephen Spielberg film The Goonies; author of The Dealmakers Ten Commandments.

 

“”The Power to Get Things Done” is a powerful tool for anybody who wants to “up” their game. It clearly and effectively addresses one of the major obstacles to success both personally and in business: The failure to execute. It describes and dissects how and why, in spite of our best intentions, we are often unable to motivate ourselves to achieve important personal goals or bring projects successfully to completion.  It ultimately provides solid, yet simple to implement techniques that will give you the power to overcome the forces that are blocking your path to success.” – Mark Larson, Vice Chairman, Digi-Key Corporation; under Mark’s leadership as president, sales increased from $800,000 to $1,760,000,000 and employment grew from 14 to more than 3,500 worldwide.
