What is Racing Towards Excellence about? When looking through the book's reviews, he same two descriptions keep coming up: "Everything I wish I had known before university!" or "I wish I had read this book 10 years ago." RTE is an eclectic mix of philosophy, motivational writing, self-help, autobiographic reflection and common sense, written by two authors with completely different backgrounds, perspectives and life stories. By all means, this is an unusual book. Some say it's outright weird. But that's OK. Thousands of passionate emails, letters and reviews confirm one indisputable truth: this book has achieved what the authors set out to do: change the lives of young people around the world for the better.Why should you read it? Firstly, people actually change after reading RTE. For some reason, this book does seem to be almost unexpectedly good in doing one critical thing really, really well -- it gets it readers to not just read it and nod their head, but get up and use the book's ideas to improve their life. Secondly, RTE is as concise as it gets, giving you everything you need -- but nothing more. This is a ruthlessly efficient book which applies the 80/20 principle to the extreme. RTE is a 17-chapter, 250-page no-nonsense overview of best practices in every area that matters. In short, the book ensures you get three good ideas and implement them, rather than give you hundreds and paralyze you with choice. When put together, these two things end up making all the difference.
