This book is about finding your true passion or love (as the author prefers to call) in your work and career. It is the author's own journey from the president of a large organization to a coach. It is about finding what really motivates you and gives you a sense of fulfillment and purpose. Coaching, mentoring etc. may help you and the author shares some good stories how he could help some very successful people reach higher levels of success.
As is my habit, I opened the book and found myself reading a highly readable account of the author's role as a mentor and coach f0r a successful and ambitious lady when she was making the transition from the position of a manager to COO of a business. I was reminded of the business novel "The Goal" (which is in my opinion the best among such books). Then I read the present book from beginning to end. While the book is readable, the author is at his best when he is narrating the story about his mentoring Allison (the ambitious lady who wants to become COO). The story is told from Chapter 8 to chapter 16. In my view, this is the best part of the book.
Each chapter has a summary at the end, which tries to give a gist of the management principle that the author is trying to share.
The book is printed well. The editing is good with only a few slips, which luckily don't distract the reader.
The last Chapter about the importance of silence is metaphysical and may not appeal to those interested in the mundane world of business success. Otherwise, the book will appeal to all those who are trying to raise their career to new heights.
I would have preferred to see such a book in hardcover edition since it may be visited again and again.

Success Without A College Degree: Dissolving The Roadblocks Between You and Success by John T. Murphy
The following review was contributed by:
Is success the preserve of college grads?
Success is a real attention grabber, not only as a
human condition but also as a subject for discourse,
and the reason is not unconnected with the fact that
it is everybody's desire. Everybody wants to be
successful in life, but not everybody thinks, speaks
and acts towards success, which explains why some
people are successful and others are not.
