The Success Principles by Jack Canfield with Janet Switzer Who hasn't heard of Chicken Soup for the Soul and the seemingly endless variations thereof? Jack Canfield, along with Mark Victor Hansen, is the guy that created that bestselling series of books. Now Canfield has decided to share his success principles with the public. And you know what? He does a great job. Canfield presents 64 success principles that he says always work if you follow them. Some of the principles relate to how you see the world, some help re-shape your ways of thinking, some help you banish self-defeating habits, beliefs and fears. He goes beyond personal goals, and discusses techniques to help the reader create good relationships at the office and how to operate in a team setting.

Canfield has a friendly, clear and concise writing style. He builds on such classics as Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich and adds his own insights and advice. This is a practical, helpful work which requires readers to work hard. But for those who are willing to do the work, Canfield will provide the road map to success. And who can't use one of those?
