When I first read Jims work, I was thrilled. Finally, someone had clearly and con-cisely articulated these principles in a way that people can quickly adopt into their lives.from the foreword by Howard Behar, retired president, Starbucks

This is an awesome book. James Autrys gift is that he brings lofty ideals down to earth with general illustrations that make them easy to understand and apply. I highly recommend it!Jack Canfield, coauthor, Chicken Soup for the Soul
