Inside The Motivational World

What do motivators write about? How to change your life around usually. But a recent novel, Quest, Inc., by Justin Cohen, a leading authority on personal development, takes a cheeky look at the world of motivational training.The novel’s synopsis says:“What if you brought together five top personal development experts—equipped with virtually everything we know about unleashing human potential—and gave them some lives to change? Could they really coach anyone to lose fifty pounds, fix a broken relationship, or get rich? What would they do for a homeless person, or a pro-golfer trailing at the back of her league? How about taking the racism out of a racist, or turning a hellish employee into a ray of sunshine?Welcome to Quest, Inc. They say they can change your life. Now, as they’re followed by an investigative journalist from one of the world’s leading news publications, they have to prove it—or be damned as charlatans.

Based on real life peak performance and transformational strategies, you’ll see the highs and lows everyone faces on the road to self-realization—especially the experts. Get ready for breakthrough . . . or breakdown.”

I like the concept for the novel and the excerpt I’ve read from it intrigues me. I have to admit that I had planned to read and review Quest, Inc for this post today. But going a wonderful holiday in the Swiss mountains last week and too many other deadlines to meet pushed my plans right out of my mind so I haven’t even started it yet. But I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the book and I’ll post a review when I’ve finished it – likely toward the end of September.

Meanwhile you can also read an excerpt from the book:
