If Success Is a Game, These Are the Rules: Ten Rules for a Fulfilling Life

Cherie Carter-Scott, Author, Cherie Carter-Scott, Read by Random House Audio Publishing Group $25.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-553-52698-1
Drawing the listener in with her heartfelt, uplifting voice and undeviating purpose (""to facilitate your personal journey of success""), motivational speaker, consultant and author of seven books (including If Life Is a Game, These Are the Rules) Carter-Scott systematically outlines her 10 rules for a fulfilling life. Taken at face value, the ""rules""-""Wanting success is the first step toward obtaining it,"" ""Self-trust is essential"" and ""Goals are stepping stones on path""-seem little more than cliched self-help mantras that belie the book's real substance and author's down-to-earth tone. The highly organized format contains individualized exercises in each chapter, helping readers pinpoint their personal definition of success; articulate their purpose, path, vision and mission; organize a support team; and assess opportunities and maximize resources. Strategies are offered to avoid common pitfalls and hidden barriers to success such as self-sabotage, as well as a how-to on setting S.M.A.R.T. goals (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-based). Hand picked proverbs, inspirational quotes, a heavy reliance on personal experience and three decades' worth of her clients' anecdotal evidence perfectly suit the spoken format. Based on the Broadway hardcover (Forecasts, Oct. 9, 2000. (Dec. 2000)
