Recommends it for: anyone who wants to improve their quality of life.
Recommended to David by: Dr. Rutland
This book is amazing. Dr. Rutland really sheds light on the character, or lack thereof, of the world today. I try to read this book once a year, just to keep myself humble before the Lord. It's always a good idea to examine yourself and make every attempt to build and maintain good, Godly character.

This is another book about character, from a Christian perspective. It covers topics such as humility, modesty and honesty. You don't have to be a Christian to care about these things.

Absolutely enjoyed this book. Inspirational. Makes you think deeply and critically about life, yours and others, and our American culture. He makes great points with real world and sometimes historical examples. I made many highlights, which I've reviewed a couple times already, and can see myself reading the entire book again. I would have titled the book, "Character Matters: Nine Essential Traits to Becoming a Better You," as the word "Succeed" may be misinterpreted by some.

A respectable analysis of several aspects of character, including loyalty, bravery, honesty, meekness and gratitude. The analysis of honesty was superior to some models, though still erratic in its consistency, and, ultimately, incorrect. On the positive side, the best chapter by far was the one on Diligence.

Great book! The only thing I didn't like about it was that I thought I was doing pretty well on some of these character traits until I read the book! :)

Loved this. I'm sure I will re-read it for years to come. So much information that I think I would find something relevant to my life every time I read it.
