If like me, you have grown tired of sophomoric pabulum of so many of today's self-help books, you will likely enjoy this thoughtful book. Instead of writing what many would like to hear ("six east steps to..."), the author has conceived a philosophy of peak performance. The result reads more like a philosophy book than a typical self-help book. The organization of the philosophy is very thoughtful, the writing very articulate, and the tone just perfect. I especially liked that the author doesn't see himself as a guru, but instead as someone eager to share his learnings.
I am in awe of the fact that this is the author's first book. The quality of this book portends for great things from Culbert in the years to come. I predict that he will become a very significant force in raising consciousness, assuming he continues to walk his wisdom. Here is hoping that fame and adulation will not knock him off course as it has done with so many others. The world needs Gerald Culbert, and more like him.
