Review of The Power of Respect, by Deborah Norville
By Nancy Kvamme
One statement on the book’s jacket is, “The respect you give to others is vital to success in every area of your life”. I have also read Deborah’s previous book, “Thank You Power”. The Power of Respect is a great followup to Thank You Power. The book reminds us the importance of being respectful.
Showing respect costs nothing but the rewards are priceless. Being respectful can help you be more successful in every aspect of your life. In your home life it can result in a stronger marriage, more polite children and healthier family dynamics. In the business world, results can be happier and more satisfied employees, lower employee turnover and higher sales. On a personal level it can result in higher self confidence, closer friendships and higher standing in the community.
Deborah includes both scientific research and real life stories to show the importance of respect.
The Power of Respect is an easy read and at 190 pages should not take long to read. The way it is written it can be read at various stages so it is convenient to read if you have scattered periods available to read.
Like many other things, respect is one thing that is not being passed on to the next generation. I think the book is a great reminder of the importance of showing respect and shows easy ways to keep it alive.
