Skomomma's Rating: 3 out of 5
Jolt by Phil Cooke is written for those interested in making change in their life. In twenty-five easily digestible sections, he documents the key steps and processes that will kick start the reader into doing something differently in their personal, spiritual and/or professional life. Those 25 segments fall into five major categories:
Jolt your Direction
Jolt what Matters
Jolt your Potential
Jolt your Heart
Jolt your Future
The book includes a wide variety of stories, examples and statistical facts that make this non-fiction book comfortable to read. Each major section (as listed above) includes action steps and questions to get the reader thinking.
There are a couple of drawbacks to this book that kept me from rating it any higher. First, I don't believe there is any highly new or innovative material in this book. However, the format of the book was very appealing to me and I would probably recommend this book to someone that didn't know where to start with goal setting and implementation. The second drawback is that this book is very time-sensitive. I would imagine that with in a year or two a majority of the material would seem out-of-date to the average reader given the number of references to current technologies and the like.
