The Art of Significance

Dan Clark. Penguin/Portfolio, $25.95 (256p) ISBN 978-1-59184-574-4
Is Clark’s latest a self-help book, a leadership book, or perhaps an all-round feel-good tome? In fact with all of the author’s (Puppies for Sale) personal accounts, family stories (particularly regarding his father), insights, and even a poem, Chicken Soup for the Soul might be the first thing to come to mind. The book is meant to be transformational, designed for readers “who want to achieve game-changing results.” Clark hopes readers will progress from wanting to be Successful to wanting to be Significant. For Clark, success is “getting what you want and finding happiness on a superficial level,” while significance is “a higher state of happiness and fulfillment beyond the merely successful,” where you understand that “being is more important that having.” But don’t expect philosophical arguments or theological sermons here. The book is mostly rhetoric and stories, passionately told, many coming from sports and the military. Agent: Nina Madonia, Dupree/Miller & Associates. (Mar.)
