Book Review: Jolt! by Phil Cooke

Book Description:
In a world where change happens at light speed, discovering and mastering the power of change can transform your business and your life.

Stop feeling overwhelmed with changing technology, culture, business, trends, and values, and regain the confidence that can give you a real advantage. Stability, once a mainstay of American life, is now a pipe dream. For most people, this creates major anxiety, worry, and confusion. In JOLT!, Phil Cooke, television producer, media guru, and cultural commentator, will help you discover how you can navigate the whirlwind of change and actually use it to your advantage. After spending three decades helping organizations master the art of change, he realized that changing a company or changing your life, are both based on virtually the same key principles.
In this accessible and relevant guidebook meant to anchor and empower every reader, Cooke unveils 25 "jolts" anyone can leverage to establish a new direction, maximize potential, overcome insecurity, safeguard the heart and mind, reinforce values, and create an amazing future and lasting legacy. Whether your goal is to revitalize your organization, or transform the direction of your life, he reveals the secrets to becoming a game changer in readers' lives, opening up new possibilities, confidence, and impact.
Like the "Reset" button on a computer, JOLT! can revolutionize your thinking and shake up your life!

My Review:
Yes! I liked this book! I didn't expect to like it. The cover leaves a little bit to be desired. However, upon reading more and more of the book - I was hooked! I love the fact that Mr. Cooke uses alot of facts, quotations from various famous fellows and ladies, and follows any of his statements with explanations or proof of those statements. The logic and practicality of the book really charges reality with new definitions. He teaches the average person (maybe even less than average or more than average people, too) the key things in what it takes to maximize your potential in life.

After each chapter there are some really awesome questions for you to think upon. I urge you to answer them. I urge you to read the book. Come on - make a change..it gives alot to think about!
