News & Opinion: Book to Watch For

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:18 PM – Filed under: Personal Development & Human Behavior

We have already given you a heads-up on new books from Kawasaki and the team of Bossidy and Charam. The other book that caught our attention at BEA was Overachievement by John Eliot. Here is the description from the Portfolio catalog:
In OVERACHIEVEMENT, John Eliot, a rising star in the field of performance enhancement, explains the latest research into why goal setting, relaxation, visualization, stress management, and flow simply don't work for most people. Based on Dr. Eliot's cutting edge work with clients such as Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, top surgeons at the Texas Medical Center, and musicians like Dave Matthews, this powerful book will help readers achieve consistent success on the job, on the playing field, or in any stressful situation.
