Clues for succeeding in crisis from 50 graduates of the "School of Hard Knocks"
PAUL BATES & AL EMID
How would you like to spend an entire weekend with 50 highly successful grads of the School of Hard Knocks? Just you and these 50 interesting and changed people, all to yourself, all completely focused on you, and on giving you the advice you desperately need. What would ask them?
WHAT I HAVE LEARNED SO FAR. . . delivers a weekend of insight in 130 pages (just right for a weekend read), full of compassionate and candid dialogue - each page offering reflection, guidance and inspiration.
WHAT I HAVE LEARNED SO FAR. . . asks the question "If you knew when you were 25 what you know now ..." and then tells the reader in an entertaining narrative, the breathtaking, heartbreaking and often heartwarming stories that will show you how to navigate through personal dilemmas when experience is lacking.
Against the backdrop of a crisis in each individual's life, you will explore the sources of strength he or she found in dealing with it, the solutions tried and discarded and the actions taken that provided successful resulting outcomes. Most important, you'll learn of personal savvy in the face of formidable odds as the authors probe further with this question: "What would you suggest to anyone else confronting the same issue?"
