Quotes & Awards

  • “A youthful-sounding expert offers compelling insights on how to have healthy emotions, good relationships, and satisfying work. Sounding like he’s very comfortable at the microphone, Cloud’s articulation and phrasing are so well crafted that most listeners will be surprised to learn he’s not a voice pro. A clear and sensitive writer as well, he explains how we fragment our lives and lose sight of what’s central to our identity and purpose. To get back to having one life, he says, we need to pay attention to the boundaries between ourselves and others and between what we truly want and what the outside world imposes on us. The presentation also includes reassuring advice on how to keep cell phones, computers, and other distractions from ruling our lives.”


  • “Cloud espouses the virtues of self-definition and self-control, and his series of engaging analogies and examples helps readers conduct an internal self-audit by identifying core values, visions, missions, and goals. The author hones in on common weaknesses—overdeveloped needs for security, approval, and perfectionism—and leads readers through a plan for regaining control of themselves, their work, and their lives with easy-to-follow activities to implement changes as personal policies. Unfailingly encouraging, Cloud is a fine advocate for the benefit of gaining control and protecting boundaries, and his book is a must-have life management bible.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Dr. Cloud will show you how to produce the results you are looking for in your work and personal life.”

    Dr. Phil McGraw, #1 New York Times bestselling author
