Jack Canfield's The Success Principles is a wide-ranging self-help book. Although it was conceived with the average middle manager in mind, a stay-at-home mom or a retired 60-something could also glean some wise advice here. Canfield is best known for his Chicken Soup for the Soul series, and if you never picked up one of those, shall we say, more lightweight books, you will be pleasantly surprised by his intuitive effort to bring his successful life principles to business. A former teacher and foundation executive, Canfield's mission is to develop the leadership potential of every human being. The Success Principles develops core living skills that morph into core career leadership skills. There is nothing cutesy about this book. It is about choosing, defining and seeking your own brand of success without compromise and with integrity to get from where you are to where you want to be.
