    Book Review

Reviewed by Darin Godby for Readers' Favorite

This is a book for the individual, group, company, etc., that is trying to become better in that which they are involved in. Saving time, moving forward in greater unity as well as overcoming obstacles, are just a portion of what the reader can learn from this well-written book. The book is written in two parts that can stand alone on their own. The first part deals with a step-by-step process on how to implement the S.H.I.F.T. Model in a more structured manner. The second part is less structured though it tells how to make this process of shifting effective within one's life. There are great page breaks with motivational quotes as well as fantastic charts for the reader to use in helping to make their own shift.

This is more than just a book filled with words; it is rather a book with a leader allowing the reader to follow its outline. While the readers must do their own part in making this work, author Beverly D. Flaxington has given the reader the ability to do so with all the tools provided within this book. This book helps to break down what might otherwise be an overwhelming task, so the readers can truly take action and make their life more productive and enjoyable. I truly enjoyed this book and found it to be very helpful and insightful. If you are looking for a way to improve your life, family, job, etc., then you owe it to yourself to read this book and use the charts provided to make the shift.
