We live our lives word by word - to build our relationships, to convey our points of view, to object to wrongs done to us or to others, to comfort our children and our friends. We also use the wrong words - sometimes unknowingly - and get ourselves into situations we'd rather not be in.

As Stephen R. Covey points out in his introduction: Words sell and words repel; Words lead and words impede; Words heal and words kill.

Kevin Hall discovered the deeper power inherent in words after a fateful encounter with a wise shopkeeper in Vienna. When that led to an introduction to an esteemed etymologist residing in a senior home, Hall embarked on a project that changed his life, and has since changed the lives of thousands. Discover the eleven words - as well as the secret word - that when used correctly, can light your path to the lifelong success you deserve.

    " I'm not really a self-help book reader (although maybe I should be!) but I enjoyed learning about the meanings of words and how they have changed and lost the original intent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 11/9/2013

    " A cross between inspirational and etymological, Hall explores the meaning of words and the power in their meaning. Not that many are covered (one per chapter) but a lovely book I enjoyed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matt Evans | 5/25/2013

    " This book has a simple structure: every chapter is based on a word, each word a variation on the book's main word (and, it turns out, rubric): Aspire! Motivational and educational. "

    Definitely worth a read! "
