Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Life and business aren’t fair, which is good. If they were, you couldn’t seize the unfair advantage.

Think about it. Is your CEO the smartest person in the company? Is the head of your department more driven than you? Does the leading company in your industry make the best products? Probably not. They all have one thing in common, though: They’re on top of the pile because they discovered and exploited their unfair advantage—and with the help of business expert and motivational dynamo Garrison Wynn, you can do the same.

The Real Truth about Success is the culmination of ten years’ worth of interviews with more than 5,000 top performers in their fields. During the process, Wynn discovered that better brains, a positive attitude, and superior all-around quality rarely drive true success. Rather, the most successful people in the world leverage their unique, distinctive qualities—whatever they may be—to propel themselves to the front of the line.

In The Real Truth about Success, Wynn helps you n Discover (or create) your own personal advantage
  • Align it with the most appropriate goals
  • Transition from self-knowledge to repeatable implementation
  • Relentlessly put your advantage to practical use
  • Bask in the sunshine of well-deserved success
All of us have a personal advantage we can use to stack the cards in our own favor. What’s yours? High intelligence? Good looks? Likability? Great connections? (Your unfair advantage may well be a talent for leveraging other peoples’ unfair advantage.)

Refreshingly (sometimes brutally) honest about what it takes to get to the top, The Real Truth about Success blows the lid off the secret of their success—so you can make it the secret of your success.


“Very quotable and brutally honest.”
—David Stephenson, CEO, American Concrete

“Funny, and dead on! I want all of my employees to read this book. This is not another self-help motivational book, far from it. It’s about developing your own tools to find your own path to success.”
—Keith Baizer, Mayor of Creativity, Art Mart

“Garrison shows it’s not cheating to use the advantages we have over others to win and stay on top. One of the key reasons some pretty unimpressive people are superstars is willingness.”
—Byron Haney, Director, Financial Advisory, Farmers Insurance

“This book shows you how to win an unfair fight! It’s filled with those secret truths that can be impossible to learn on your own.”
—Shep Hyken, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Cult of the Customer

“As he thoughtfully debunks conventional wisdom, Wynn provides high-impact insights for success in this fast-moving, humorous, and entertaining book.”
—Wiliam F. Murdy, Chairman and CEO, Comfort Systems USA
