Reviews and Comments: 

"Truly a handbook for thriving at work in the New Economy. Every worker, manager, and professional will find this manual inspiring, and immensely serviceable. Hayes tells us what we must do and how to do it."

Ronald Gross, Chair, University Seminar on Innovation, Columbia University

"If I were a CEO or manager, I'd buy a copy for every one of my employees, and I'd expect to see a huge increase in motivation and performance."

Shel Horowitz, author of Grassroots Marketing and several other business books

"For those who take it seriously, Hayes' little book will yield a far greater return on investment than the highest-flying stock."

Lewis J. Perelman, author of School's Out

"This new book by Charles Hayes sent a chill up my spine. It made me realize how far we've traveled in 100 years. Just as the twentieth century wiped out jobs for millions of horses, the next century will wipe out jobs for the undereducated.... Hayes challenges readers to be prepared, in control, and focused on making the most of their talents....You may read this book in a single sitting, but you will come back to it again and again, because the author is an empathetic counselor who has been there. You will sense that he wants the best for you more than you do yourself."

James R. Fisher, Jr., author of Six Silent Killers: Management's Greatest Challenge

"This 90-page, shirt pocket-size volume provides a good blueprint for lifelong learning, written with a positive yet realistic attitude, for use at work and for developing good citizenry. More people should take charge of their lives and talents. This little book may be the brief introduction that the school-benumbed will be willing to read and benefit from." 

Tom Bowden, Managing Editor of Tech Directions
