Smashwords Interview

Tell us about yourself, how old are you, where do you live, what prompted you to write personal development books?
I live in the US where those politically correct would describe my age as "senior citizen." I have a technical background and worked for many years in engineering and engineering management positions. It was my entry into management that stimulated my interest in human motivation and behavior. With coursework, an MBA, and lots of reading, I transitioned my interests from purely technical to human behavior applied to technology. I eventually became very good at coaching, mentoring, and helping people become their best. This led me into writing newsletters, articles (over 600), and several books.
There are so many self-help books on the market, what's unique about your writing?
There are thousands of books from which to choose, so picking those you'll purchase can be very difficult. The advice I give is the same advice I use for my own choices in books. Pick writers whose messages resonate for you as helpful and useful. Three different writers can write about the same topic of personal development, such as finding your life purpose, but each will come from a unique perspective based on their backgrounds, experiences, and knowledge.

Sample my books and monitor what you feel as you read. If you feel excited, curious, and insightful about your own personal development needs, my writing may be a good fit for you. I write from a combination of my personal experiences and documented scientific research findings. I don't recommend a personal growth process unless I've utilized it myself and can offer insights and suggestions.

Smashwords book reviews by Jerry Lopper

  • You Were Born to Succeed: Finding Your Purpose through Numerology on Oct. 23, 2011

    If you're like most people, wondering what life is about and searching for meaning in your life, Fairbrother's book is a good place to start. As a life coach, I've always relied on self-reflection, meditation, and careful examination of the emotional clues of daily living to help people find life purpose. I was skeptical whether numerology could be a useful tool in the search for life meaning, but was pleasantly surprised. It can! Fairbrother's book starts out by removing some of the mystery from numerology and the term occult. This is interesting, but the real meat of the book is in constructing your personal Chaldean chart. With just two facts, your full name and date of birth, the chart provides excellent clues to your life purpose, your strengths, potential weaknesses, and challenges for your lifetime. Skeptics might counter that the results could apply to anyone, but I found that not to be the case. My results were fairly specific and on-target while the results for different name/birthday combinations were well off target. I recommend Fairbrother's book to anyone sincerely searching for life purpose, with the understanding that the results will provide clues and possibilities that should be combined with self-reflection and perhaps consultation to reach the best clarity of life purpose.
