Randel’s Skinny On works are to the point, fast reads most readers will want to read through quickly and then return for specific reading, or for more in depth study.
Randel points out that success is not necessarily attained by the brightest or more capable, more handsome or even the luckiest persons, rather it is more readily attained by those who clearly recognize what it is that they personally feel strongly about, and then recognize that they not only have prospective to achieve success, can take action, and set out with persistence to attain the goal notwithstanding setbacks not and then. Successful people are those who recognize that disappointment is also a part of the process of success. Learn from it, pick yourself up and go forward.
I like the use of lots of illustrations, quotes and quotes to help drive a point home.
