Review by Library Journal (2009-11-15)

Business consultant/motivational speaker Poscente ( draws on his experience as an Olympic speed skier to inform this guide to remaining competitive in an increasingly fast-paced world. He advises readers/listeners to assess their tolerance for risk, mult i task consciously and effectively, pursue goals in line with their strengths and passions, and more. Sean Mangan's (Area 7) narration is well paced; he smoothly transitions to the "fast facts" interspersed throughout the text. In keeping with the subject, the recording is just four hours long-perfect for a short commute. A smart option for those interested in unconventional approaches to optimizing their performance in business and in life.
