Review: The 1% Solution by Tom Connellan

The 1% Solution for Work and Life: How to Make Your Next 30 Days the Best EverTop sales reps, weight loss champs, blue chip firms, Warren Buffett, Navy SEALs, Olympians, and other winners all understand the power of 1%. Packed with actionable ideas, The 1% Solution shows you how to power up your next 30 days and then keep on going at a permanently higher level. Because it's based upon solid research and backed up with real-life examples, this book is for those who want to be better right now. 

Received from the publicist for review.

The most striking quote from the book was:

The average difference between the gold medal winner and the fourth place as just 1 percent.

This one gets four stars.  It was well written and genuinely interesting.  The nice, easy flow combined with the nicely sized chapters made for a quick read with easily absorbed messages.  While the book is on the slim side it gets its point across swiftly and concisely.  The fiction type style of the writing makes the material accessible and easy to process and made for an infinitely more enjoyable reading experience than had it been a typical nonfiction read.  I certainly highly recommend it.

★★★★ = Really Liked It
