Cluck it Or Chuck It: Obstacles Welcome by Ralph de la Vega

Cuban Refugee to President & CEO of AT&T Mobility, what were the steps that got him there? How did a man who faced many obstacles not get mired down in the muck? How do you stop living your life trapped in a lazy chair jell cell; so that you can live a life you dreamed of?

This book will help those looking to improve their success journey in the following ways: (a) how to manage calculated risks (b) finding opportunities in your life being blended at high speed (c) and how to enable others to help you through effective communication.

De la Vega did not show how Christ empowered his success journey enough. He would have improved the book had he found scriptural truth to back up his opinions. The book tended to be very humanistic and treads on the mythic axiom, of lacing up your bootstraps and make it happen (very Horatio Alger of him). There was a lack of notes and research, or even works that had influenced De la Vega's point of view mentioned in the Appendix.

Summary: Not the book I was looking for and it took me a long time to finish it.
