Be ready for a head-on challenge to address a simple but profound question - What kind of person do you want to be? The author offers examples and throws down gauntlets to force a realistic self assessment of whatever it is you are doing with your life. You are taken on a journey to core values, there are no trite answers and no quick fixes but there is an experienced, guiding hand along the way. This book hasn't been handed on and it isn't in the cellar along with many others. It stays on my bedside table because I keep wanting to go back to the words of the Native American Elder, to those of numerous other characters that appear and not least to the words of the author himself.

If you only ever read one book about getting your act together in work and life, then this it it. Norman Drummond's book is full of timeless wisdom which will help you achieve your potential and live to your true self.
It starts by inviting you to give yourself the best self appraisal you will ever conduct. It then leads you through how you leave behind the baggage that is getting in the way of you achieving your full potential. Drawing on examples and anecdotes, the book sets out in an easy to read style, numerous practical techniques you can use to get the most out of work and life by living to your true self. It ends by drawing on the inspiration of Nelson Mandela and uses the Mandela story to guide you into achieving your full potential.
This is a gem of a book , and in time I'm convinced it will be a classic and a best seller. I'm lucky to have read it so soon after it was published - why wait - give yourself a gift that will last a lifetime, buy it and find out for yourself.

Out of all the books I have ever read this by far the best one so far. It is so simple to understand, and it is precise.
What a wonderful writer he is. People who are on the Spiritual path and are ready to re-Conect and find their true selves, this book will do just that. This book will change lives, finding your self is finding that magic deep within, there is nothing else to look for, we contain everything. We have all the answers that we need, we just have to stop, sometimes, and not treat our bodies like slaves, allowing our thoughts of the past to dominate our lives, beating ourselves up for not getting it right, whatever it is.
It is time for great change, and we can do it if we want to have that magic in our lives. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT.

Norman Drummond's new book will find a resonance in the soul of everyreader. He brings a timely message of reassurance to all of us involvedin a life of business or the business of life. The message is that "it'sokay to have integrity, to be honest and decent".
He poses three important questions. Three questions that we should eachask ourselves regularly throughout life. Questions, which if honestlyanswered, will help us create for ourselves a balanced, successful andhappy life.
Illustrated with anecdotes and quotations drawn from the huge variety ofpeople this man has met, taught, coached and worked with over the pastthirty years this book will inspire and encourage the reader to attaintrue leadership qualities.
Buy it and try it. You won't regret it.

I have read with great interest and enjoyment, Norman Drummond's book The Spirit of Success.
This book is what I would best describe as a presentation of "common sense" on how we can take the necessary steps to improve our quality of life and also develop better relationships with those people that we come in contact with.

Norman Drummond has a breadth and width of life experience which very few of us will achieve in one lifetime. The richness of this experience together with an empathy, understanding and ability to express our own fears and feelings allows Norman to touch our souls in a compelling, humble and very personal way

I have seen Norman Drummond in action as a redoutable BBC National Governor for Scotland and as Chairman of BBC Children in Need - and I can confirm that he connected heart to head to great effect in both roles.
