The 8 Traits Successful People Have in Common: 8 to Be Great by Richard St John

This book is a short motivational read that should take no longer than a few hours to read to get what you need. The book is organized with a short intro and "about the author" section, then presents an idea in a page or so, followed by examples of other people that have been highly successful in what they do and aligning their success and approach to the values presented in the book. Suggested approach to reviewing this content is to read the introduction and About the Author section and review the graphic and list on pages 8 and 9. Read the first paragraph at the beginning of each chapter, and then review the list/TOC in front of each chapter. Identify topics that interest you and read just those. Once you completed that, only read front-to-back if you feel it is worth your time.
