Book Review

Inspiring people to go out and take action!

I really enjoyed reading this book. Defining Your Greatness: A Toastmaster’s Prospective is a very well written Life-Improvement book. This book is intelligent, wise and packed to the rafters with practical common-sense advice. It becomes obvious as you read through this page turner that the author is imparting her wisdom and understanding as to what happiness and success really means. It’s an excellent guide for putting things into perspective and may well be a potential life changer for all those who read it. No matter what your situation is to-day, this book will put you on the right path to better things. I’ve been around the block a few times myself and even I found this read to be very perceptive and informative.

Profound thoughts are explained here in the simplest manner. That’s all one can say about this book. It’s difficult to write a more objective review, because the impact the author will have on you will make you see life and its problems in a wise and practical way. The book should NOT be read – it should be absorbed and reflect-ed upon.

This wonderful book will show you how to properly tune into life and the simple rules you must follow to achieve this. This by far is one of the best Life-Improvement books I’ve read in a very long time. The author must be commended for her time and effort for producing such an insightful book. Also, the writing style is friendly which makes for an enjoyable read.
I would highly recommend this book. Five stars from me.

Valuable resource, full of positivity and inspiration

This book is very inspirational; it includes details on communication, the value of meditation and how
useful dopamine production is for motivating you to achieve your goals.

I LOVED this book! Lorraine Cuff’s account of her life and her offering of lessons learned were more than I bargained for! I felt truly inspired and led to follow her “greatness,” with every rousing chapter. This book moved me to reignite my passion for achievement in public speaking (I finally joined Toastmasters, Inc.) and helped me rediscover my own unique path, years after my official retirement. I will read and re-read this book for Lorraine Cuff’s motivational real talk and her message on untapped potential. It lit my fire! This author is highly accomplished in life and her story is well worth telling! Highly recommend!
