Book Review: "Success: 30 Interviews with Entrepreneurs & Executives" (Jason Navallo)

What does it take to achieve success? Is it something you'll chase forever? Something you can achieve once you've hit a certain milestone?

What does success look like for you?

Here to answer that question are thirty different executives and entrepreneurs from as many industries and corporations as you can imagine. These are interviews conducted and compiled by Jason Navallo into his nonfiction book Success: 30 Interviews with Entrepreneurs & Executives.

Success is such an intangible thing to achieve, for some of us, that sometimes it helps to read the perspectives and experiences of others, perhaps for inspiration, or motivation, or even just a place to start our own journey to success.

That's where these interviews, with experts from Colin Day to Jane Wales to John McAfee to Scott Cohen, come in handy. You'll read an extensive background and bio on each individual and then launch directly into the same eight questions Navallo crafted for all the interviews, to ensure continuity, consistency, and the chance for readers to draw comparisons between the interviewees' answers.

And what you'll find may surprise you. As successful as these experts may appear, not all of them will claim to have achieved greatness. Some will continue to search for success, as if it were more elusive than anything we could really quantify. Some contend that success has nothing to do with business and everything to do with your personal brand, your integrity, or what you give back to the world.

Other questions asked and answered include lessons learned, advice for college students entering the work force for the first time, motivations, and the qualities of a great leader, all of which play together to provide a seamless and thought-provoking read for the person looking to define success in his or her own life.

A highly recommended read for your professional and personal libraries.
