A practical and entertaining book which demonstrates how to motivate and enthuse oneself and others in all fields of life. The subject is highly topical: top managers now increasingly realize the importance of inspiring their staff, and a growing proportion of employees now demands a motivational environment at work. Would you like to: Motivate yourself -- create a real vision of how you might succeed, and fulfil more of your own potential? Get someone else motivated -- so that you are recognized as a truly outstanding coach and confidence-builder, helping others to 'achieve wonderful things'? Motivate someone to achieve a specific goal -- ending up with fewer 'awkward' appraisal discussions with your staff, managers, and/or your children or partner? If so, The Tao of Motivation will help you. It offers a few simple tools, tips and techniques which really work. It's fun to read, and full of practical examples, cartoons and illustrations, presented in an easily digestible, entertaining way.

UK Kirkus review
This book tells the story of Alex, who fails to make it onto the board of directors and is left to cope with the consequences of his poor motivational style. This provides a starting point for a study of how to motivate others - even if you think you're already doing a good job, as Alex did. Interspersed between episodes from this case study are concise, hard-hitting sections which deal with specific points: stress, fear of success, personality types and self-talk, for example. The book also features some witty, succinct cartoons to illustrate its arguments. A lively narrative approach helps the reader to identify with the issues raised, but while the contents are interesting, the book recycles much of what has already been debated. (Kirkus UK)
