Review: When Turtles Fly by Nikki Stone

Did you know you have better odds at winning the lottery than an Olympic medal? To bring home one of those coveted medals--or achieve any great personal goal in life--you need a lot more than luck. You need a game plan.

What if you could learn the secrets of success from an Olympian? A Nobel Prize winner? A Fortune 500 CEO? Olympic gold medalist Nikki Stone has compiled a treasure trove of compelling stories to illustrate each step on the path to success. She's gathered humorous, heartwarming and hugely inspirational tales from some of today's most brilliant business leaders, scientists, soldiers, inventors, philanthropists, musicians, athletes and entrepreneurs...a host of people whose very names epitomize achievement. Winners such as: * Designer Tommy Hilfiger * Prince Albert of Monaco * X-Games& Olympic Champion Shaun White * NFL Quarterback Steve Young * Musician Jazz Branford Marsalis * Best-selling Author Dr. Stephen Covey * Olympic star Skiing Lindsey Vonn * Celebrity Chef Todd English * Venture Capitalist Leading Vinod Khosla * And many more successful greats

Now an acclaimed motivational speaker and peak performance coach, author Nikki Stone helps people in all walks of life to overcome fears, failures and plateaus and realize their full potential. In this step-by-step guide to success, she and her team of high achievers share their stories about reaching for dreams...and grasping them.

Received from the publicist for review.

This one gets four stars. Each profile was beautifully done and nicely sized for easy reading. I didn't recognize many of those profiled, drawn from business, sports, and music sectors, but their stories were nonetheless interesting. It was simply a wonderful book with an inspiring message. Every reader will find at least one useful message within. This would certainly be great either for yourself or as a gift.

★★★★ = Really Liked It
