    The simple definition of humility: the quality or state of not thinking you are better than other people. Humility could also be defined as the absence of arrogance. The book goes on to describe that "humility may be the most important trait one can possess." Not just in your personal life but in the business world as well. The author describes the recipe for success in life to be humility.

    The author goes on to describe people who have demonstrated humility and how they achieved success in their life. People like Jesus of Nazareth, Gandhi, and Ronald Reagan. He also gives many examples of those who weren't very humble such as Tiger Woods, Dennis Kozlowski and Michelle Kwan and also included himself in the early years of his career.

    Williams talks about false humility and why we engage in it. He says "it's because we want the benefits that come with humility without having to give up our pride." How often have we engaged in false humility? Reading this book sure makes you question your own life and those around you.

    I enjoyed reading the short snippets about others that were humble, stories that we don't necessarily hear about. It seems the news/press/paparazzi focuses on the wealth, the hugeness, the arrogance of people instead of the humility, the kindness, the generosity of people. This book is a must read for everyone.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour publishing in exchange for my honest review.

    Books have been published on the subject of success to the point where they actually have their own particular genre. You would think with all the wealth of knowledge that we have that there would be a universal understanding of what the secret ingredient of success is.

    Pat Williams, in his book Humility, writes that the secret ingredient of all the successful people that he has ever encountered is they were humble and they worked on remaining humble. That did not mean that they lacked confidence. Rather, it meant that they understood their abilities but recognized that they were nothing special and deserving of praise and adoration.

    Story after story, example after example, and quote after quote, Pat Williams has done a wonderful job of collecting all sorts of anecdotal advice and evidence that points to success being built upon an attitude of humility.

    I found this book to be an amazing read and something that everybody should read more than once. We live in a culture that idolizes those who have a look at me attitude. Pat Williams book flies in the face of that and has written a book that goes to the heart of what true success is; not cultural success. This book was given to me from Barbour Publishing Co for a honest review

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review.

    I think everyone needs to read this book since we live In this 'me me me' culture. The book has enlightening concepts for putting others before yourself. The real life scenarios are thought provoking and easily comparable to what is going on today. This should be required material for athletes and business students. If more people followed the advice in this book, the world would be a better place. I will be gifting this book for the Christmas.

    What exactly is humility? Is humility a relevant topic? Why should we care about humility? And is humility even a valued commodity in todays business world? The author seeks to answer each of these questions definitively.

    The author very clearly lays out the definition of humility as the ability to keep your accomplishments in perspective, so that you treat everybody with kindness and respect, and the ability to accept criticism along with praise. I find this definition complete as it highlights the true meaning of humility. If we are indeed humble people, it is not that we become mousey people or doormats. Instead humble people have confidence in their strengths. Humble people are able to acknowledge the strengths in others, they are able to respect everyone, they are able to admit their mistakes, and they are able to seek feedback from others.

    The main point the author tries to get across to us the reader is that not only is humility a valued commodity even in todays business world, but that it may well be the most important factor for success. The author cites example after example of both historical and current people who were humble people, who were a success in their endeavors due to their humility. But the author doesnt stop there; he highlights a multitude of examples were arrogance (the opposite of humility) was their downfall.

    I found this book educational and challenging. Humility is too many times an overlooked and misunderstood quality in todays me first society. I have to say that this author is brave to take on the challenge to defend humility and build a very clear case for its importance, but I for one am glad he did. I sincerely wish everyone would pick up a copy of this book and read it with an open mind, allowing the book to stir in their thoughts.

    Get your copy not for the entertainment value but for the opportunity to grow in your understanding and the opportunity to become a humbler person. And that brings me to another point; the author even explains that humility can be learned, that we can make a conscious choice today to walk in humbleness.

    I will end this review with a list from chapter 3 of humble leadership traits

    1. Humble leaders are always learning

    2. Humble leaders are servants

    3. Humble leaders respect the individual

    4. Humble leaders surround themselves with smart people

    5. Humble leaders surrender control

    6. Humble leaders demonstrate genuine empathy and caring for subordinates

    7. Humble leaders treat customers like royalty

    Are these not traits that we need more of?

    There have been many books written on success, but this is the first one I have read giving humility a lead role in achieving success. Pat Williams' book, "Humility: The Secret Ingredient of Success," packs alot of wisdom inside its covers. Williams uses real people and real stories to illustrate how humility versus arrogance played a role in the outcome. His stories include Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, Tiger Woods, Dan Price, Bill Hewlett, Dave Packard and many more. Williams writes "Humility is a gift we give to other people. Ironically, arrogance makes us seem small and pathetic. Humility is what makes people great" (p.41). There were many times I stopped short, paused, and reread what was written "thinking that is me and I thought I was being humble - not arrogant." Business person, church leader or volunteer, school teacher, coach, mother, father, or whatever your role, this book is a must read. If true humility was practiced daily, what a difference would be seen in our country!

    I received this complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishig in exchange for my review.
