What Makes Some High Achievers Great Human Beings?

The Good Among the Great: 19 Traits of the Most Admirable, Creative and Joyous People, by Donald Van de Mark (Columbia Island Press, April 2011)

Confirming the theories of psychologist Abraham Maslow, author and former CNBC reporter and CNN anchor Donald Van de Mark brings to life 19 specific personality traits that you can develop within yourself to emulate the great and the good. He not only illustrates these traits with lively stories drawn from more than 25 years interviewing prominent leaders for CNN, CNBC, and other television news programs, he also shows how the traits are exhibited by people in all walks of life. Van de Mark’s examples span the famous (Meryl Streep, Charles Schwab,and Andrew Weil) to the great but not well known (Poosie Orr, mother and housewife; Rachel Walton, pediatric hospice nurse; and Andrew Ferguson, teacher). Practical, commonsense guidelines show readers the shortest route to personal and professional achievement and fulfillment.

In The Good Among the Great, you’ll discover how to:

-Achieve success in all facets of life

-Think more creatively and make better choices

-Experience the personal payoff of more: creativity, serenity and transcendent experiences

-Not just reach your goals but “delight in the doing”
