Title: Succeed on your own terms by Herb Greenberg and Patrick Sweeney
Call number: BJ1611.2 G798
Location: L4 Centre Wing Lifestyle Shelves

Reviewed by: Agnes Liew (Librarian)

Imagine if you were blind, what do you think you would do? Do you think you would still have the drive to beat the odds and be successful? Herb Greenberg did just that. His blindness did not deter him, instead, he believed in his abilities. He obtained his Ph.D. and eventually became the founder, CEO of an international consulting firm.

In this book “Succeed on your own terms”, Herb Greenberg and the co-author Patrick Sweeney, collected a series of inspiring stories of many individuals, each with a different success story to share. In Part II of the book, you can easily select the chapters by qualities including perseverance, resilience, patience, confidence, passion and integrity, to name a few examples.

The book also highlighted one of the important factors: you have to define what success means to you.

I’m sure you will enjoy reading all the different stories, as they are not just inspiring but equally interesting too. Not surprisingly, this book is listed as one of the top ten titles of the month.
