How To Be Successful is a comprehensive guide and motivational book that gives tips on how to achieve success. This book consists of life stories, inspirations, tips, and techniques on how to achieve desired goals. It is written by M. Curtis McCoy, and he is devoted to encouraging and motivating people in order to help them become successful. He continues to publish books on leadership, communication, personal branding, and so on. In this book, he combines life lessons with inspiring interviews to help relay a powerful message to his readers.

The author was a young and successful entrepreneur who had various establishments, but he was soon faced with challenges. He was about to lose everything he worked hard for, but his zeal and passion for survival enabled him to make a difference. He gathered prominent successful individuals to discuss their experiences and challenges and to share the ups and downs of their journey to success. This book consists of 185 pages and 27 chapters, which can be categorized under the self-help book genre. It is a compilation of lessons in relationship management, winning habits, time management, self values, and many more.

I can say that the author accomplished his objective in writing this book. I love that he conveyed knowledge by sharing his life experiences, thereby making the information realistic and achievable. The author shared tips on improving attitudes and how to make friends, and these are my favorite parts of the book. While reading this book, I was forced to pause and reflect on the ways I handled some issues. I also learned other things like the notion of delayed gratification, the notion of saying no, ethics in making friends, tips on maintaining attitudes, and many others.

The authors writing pattern was not complicated to read. The lessons were also straightforward, and it made learning easier and faster. The quotes in this book inspired me a lot, and I was motivated to do so much more. I found no errors while reading this book, so it can be said that this book received exceptional editing. I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars because it has impacted my life positively, and I enjoyed everything about this book.

I recommend this book to people over the age of 16 who are entrepreneurs or aspire to venture into entrepreneurship. If you are scared of being unsuccessful, then you should consider reading this book. It shares lessons from other successful people, and I believe business lovers will learn a lot from this book.

Thank you for your pleasant review.

With many lessons on a wide range of topics like time management, winning habits, relationship management and self values, this book is fittingly named and should be very helpful. I also like your review of the same. Thanks.

Having survived brain tumor surgery and gone further to become a CEO of a telecommunications outfit, Curtis is indeed a source of inspiration to many including me. Thank you for your detailed review.

A nice memoir which is centred on the authors wife's life is nicely presented in the book ""LOGJAM of a Beauteous MIND"" by Peter Simon Karp. An interesting book to read.
life is only knowing the unknown, we can do this by reading books easily- Online book club is a great place for this. This is what I believe.
