What is success? If you listen to a group of “success” all-stars assembled for a new book, it’s a personal and variable idea. In newly released book, "Masters of Success" (Entrepreneur Press, 2004), Ivan Misner, PH.D., has farmed for essays and stories from among the world’s “successful.” To his mind, this collection of angles on the subject gives depth and perspective to something often subject to stereotypes.

“This book looks at building success like building a jigsaw puzzle,” Misner says, “each person adds to the jigsaw puzzle of success that guides us toward our own success.”

In one chapter, self-made success, Erin Brockovich stresses that “asking yourself what you really want while forgetting all that you don’t have” is key to success. Hall of Fame coach, Lou Holtz says that you must play life and every game “thinking you are the best…never question your ability.” Ask the author, Ivan Misner, and he’ll tell you his idea of success comes from mastering the fundamentals of whatever you would accomplish.

So who is right? What is the way to success? This unique book gives the answer both in the individual stories, and as a collective effort as well.

Ivan Misner, Ph.D. is the Founder & CEO of BNI (Business Network Int’l), a referral networking organization with Chapters in 18 countries around the world. He is also the author of several books including the NY Times best-seller, “Masters of Networking” and the recently released #1 best-seller, “Masters of Success.”
