Book Review:
The Jetstream of Success is very engaging book and the moments the author uses to outline his philosophy are very memorable such as watching a leopard hunt at Sir Richard Branson’s ranch in South Africa or dancing at the Rio Carnival in Brazil but what’s more memorable are the things he says. For example I liked how he talked about how he confronted his fear of sharks by diving with a Great White off the coast of South Africa and then used that story to talk about fear and how to manage it in all its forms.

What separates The Jetstream of Success from other self-help, personal development and professional development books on the market is that its wisdom is timeless. Rather than focusing on one specific area of your life or providing answers to specific problems, Julian has decided to teach a set of intellectual principles that can be applied to a diverse range of situations. For instance he talks about failure and instead of telling you how to avoid it he casts it in new light by revealing that people don’t fail, they merely employed a strategy not suited for their desired objective. Using this mindset you can avoid becoming disheartened when you hit setbacks and simply adjust your strategy based upon your experiences.

There is one downside to the book and that is I found reading it was a bit of a challenge. It’s written in a deep, rich style which means at time occasionally you have to stop and reread a sentence to get the full meaning. That’s not such a bad thing as on the second time of reading you pick up so much more. As you can tell I enjoyed reading The Jetstream of Success and I fully expect I will reread it many times in the years to come.
