When I first read the manuscript of this book I was intrigued and also enthralled. I have spent a lifetime studying and following the habits of successful people and, in the process, I have read hundreds of self-help and personal development books, and edited a good few too. This book is simply different from the others I have read! I liked the concept of having characters in the book, even though it is not a novel – I found them easy to engage with and also found myself relating them to people I knew – myself even. What I like most is its honesty. Yes, the tips for `success’ are in the book but you have to look for them. But, so too are the reasons that people `fail.’ None of these are in your face – you just have to read the book carefully. What I also liked a lot was the gradual introduction, however subtle, of a gradual leaning of the main character, Guy, towards a more spiritual path and also his realisation that nutrition was all important. In Russell’s words –“If you don’t eat and drink well then you will never think or do well.” I hope you get as much out of it as I did, even if that is just to work out who and what are the most important things to you in your life.

I dedicate this book to the hopes, dreams and expectations that you and I, we, all had as young children. One thing is for sure – we all get dealt a hand of cards to go through life with and it is how we play that hand of cards that matters most. I marvel most of all at those people who were dealt with a weak hand yet a determination to make the very best of their lives. I also dedicate this book to any one of you who is not sure of who you really are as a person, not sure what is truly most important to you and not totally sure about what you want out of the rest of your life or how to achieve it. I hope this book makes you stop and think about those things and, if that is all you take from it, then it will have been worth writing if it causes you to do that.
