About this title


The Best Take on What Correlates with SuccessMost Helpful Customer Reviews3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
By L. Jolly on February 23, 2004Cox wrote this great little book well before "The 7 Habits" became the 80's Guide to moral- and habit-correlates that are associated with making it in life. Cox studied a lot of successful, achieving people, looked for common traits--and found somewhat different ones than Covey celebrated in "The 7 Habits." Some of that difference comes from the "eye of the beholder" effect. Covey is principle-driven; Cox is more secular. Anyway, this is a great counterpoint-read for someone who got useful things from "7 Habits," and deepens the experience of that book significantly. Also, the book has entirely original insights that are worth the read if you are looking to see either 1) how to make your life work better or 2) how to find your way to satisfaction. Cox has some entirely different and VERY useful thoughts that are bang-on; you'll recognize 'em, both the good and the bad, in yourself and in others. Timing is everything; if Cox had written this a few years later and had had Covey's contacts, this might have been the billion-seller and Covey's book would be in remainders. Highly recommended!_________________________*This book came out before Amazon was really up and running. This review, the only one the book received, appeared nine years after the book was published.

From the Author:

This was a fun book to write. I'm very pleased with its reach and depth. The Making of the Achiever is concerned with measuring, describing and improving the performance of the actual hero who is needed now more than ever in the service of the American Corporation. That hero is the achiever, and while he well may be charismatic, he more often is not; while she is undaunted, she does not necessarily call dramatic attention to herself. Rather, he or she gets the job done in a caring, distinctive way.If you are action-oriented and geared to achieve--if you're willing to make a commitment to your career and a commitment to excellence--here is the bottom line on making it to the top.-How to set realistic goals and make sure you meet them.-How to refine and highlight your special skills and get the credit you deserve.-When to talk, when to listen, and when to make your move.-How to make yourself the one person people can count on to get the job done.
