My Review:

The Power of Respect (Benefit from the Most Forgotten Element of Success) by Deborah Norville is a breath of fresh air in an era of rudeness, violence, uncertainty, fear, selfishness, and low self-respect. What would it take to get society back on tract? Ms. Norville has made a valiant attempt in this book to suggest concepts and real-life examples to live by--helping hands; respect for our fellow man; faith in ourselves. The book includes inspirational quotes; motivational lists; and highlights of reflection at the end of each chapter. It also reminds the reader of the power of praise. The book looks at the power of respect at home; the power of respect in relationships; the power of respect at school (in my opinion, is very much needed); the power of respect in business; the power of respect for leaders; values in action--strength of character.

Deborah Norville has been one of the most respected media personalities of our day; a bright beacon of grace, intelligence, kindness, and beauty. Because she has retained her self-respect and dignity, I feel she can speak with authority in this important new book. I completely enjoyed this and highly recommend it to other readers.

(Thank you to Thomas Nelson for my review copy.)
