Arlene acts as a beacon. By being visible on TV, we may relate to her and her story, as it is written in this book, is inspirational.
I recommend this book to my friends and family whom may feel like they don't have what it takes. What I got from this book is that effort (amongst types of effort, to work smartly) and willpower are the only 2 required assets to make it in life.
There is some wisdom in the book, although it is quite simple (if I recall), so take this book above all as an inspirational one.
Works for me, I coach cross country skiing. There are a lot of similar challenges in sport and business. Highly recommended to read for coaches who feel they need to get ideas across athletes and other coaches.
