Personal Brilliance: Mastering the Everyday Habits That Create a Lifetime of Success

Jim Canterucci, Author, Nido R. Qubein, Foreword by AMACOM/American Management Association $21.95 (210p) ISBN 978-0-8144-0838-4
While the idea of finding one's own ""personal brilliance"" is certainly appealing, Canterucci never really defines what he means by this term. Nevertheless, he breaks down the concept into four ""catalysts""-awareness, curiosity, focus and initiative-that, when developed and honed, will help readers ""bring an innovative solution and value to any situation"" and thus lead a more fulfilling life. Canterucci recommends that readers take a ""Personal Brilliance Quotient Assessment"" to figure out which areas of the book to focus on, but requires them to visit his Web site to do so. Included in the book, however, are a number of exercises designed to help readers adopt what the author sees as good habits, but some, such as Canterucci's suggestion that readers pause to study their hands, are contrived.
