Review:

For over ten years, I was looking for a REAL superstar who could teach presentation skills in the highly ranked Rutgers Executive MBA Program. My quest ended when I found Jim Smith Jr. Jim is a natural leader-- and he can also teach leadership! He is a self-made American success story and already a legend in the Rutgers EMBA program. This book reaffirms that self-made superstardom is still possible in our great country. --Farrokh Langdana, PhD, Professor, Finance/Economics, Rutgers Business School, Director, Rutgers Executive MBA Program

This book is a jewel and so is Jim Smith Jr. He has the three qualities we are always searching for in ourselves and others: integrity, intelligence, and great energy. Enjoy the gifts that are in this read. Jim has put together some real wisdom for us. --Jim Brown, Station Manager, WJJZ 97.5FM (Philadelphia)

I guarentee you will never be the same again. This book will change your life! --Les Brown, Bestselling Author & Motivational Speaker
