“A treasure of knowledge, brimming with insights and practical wisdom so profound and straightforward that it strikes like a lightning bolt, shocking your mind and reawakening it to a world of endless possibilities.”

Can there be anything more soul-destroying than pretending you like doing something you don’t, day after day? It’s like walking through water. You can do it—quite easily a lot of the time—but you’d be a heck of a lot happier if you could glide through the air, running and jumping without the constant slog.

Nicholas Boothman reinvented himself successfully five times in 47 years, each time in 24 hours or less. Now, in Rule Your World—The Art of  Quickly Turning Setbacks into Wonderful New Beginnings, he shows how he and hundreds of others did the same to create a world where life happens FOR you instead of TO you.

With over 3 million copies in print in more than 30 languages the international success of Nicholas Boothman’s previous titles, How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less and Convince Them in 90 Seconds or Less, paved the way for his latest book Rule Your World—The Art of  Quickly Turning Setbacks into Wonderful New Beginnings.
