"Better than the Best" is chock full of inspiration as the author not only shares his journey but encourages others on theirs. I finished the book, encouraged by what James Oh has to share with his readers.
The following quote resonated with me:
"If you continuously compete with others,
You become Bitter.
But if you continuously compete with yourself,
You become Better."
When I was competing in 5K races, I finally realized that the way to improve my own time was to quit looking at those who were passing me in the race and focus on improving myself. It worked!
Kudos James for a wonderful book!

Better than the Best, by James Oh, is an inspirational masterpiece. His book is full of encouragement and direction. I found sound wisdom to break free of restrictions that have kept me from being my best. I like this quote from his book: "If you continuously compete with others,You become Bitter.
But if you continuously compete with yourself, You become Better." Highly recommended. Glenn Langohr

I have read quite a few books that promote the topic of self-growth and professionalism and Better than the Best takes the cake! James Oh does a magnificent job at telling his story while revealing those little nuggets of wisdom we all need from time to time. My favorite quote in this book is: "to unlock your inner power is to stop resisting." Wow!!
Page after page you will find original and thought provoking content. Personally, I will be returning to this book for motivation. It is inspiration, life coaching and a refreshing drink of water all inside one book. I highly recommend Better than the Best if you are looking for motivation to pursue and achieve your goals.
