Mar 24, 2018 · 1 min read. If I knew then, what I know now: I would appreciate the people I’ve loved; many are gone now. I would try to make a difference; instead of just a living.

Even though, I regret my failures of the past, I need not despair. Now, is the past of my future; I can still do those things today, that I regret not doing before! ) Life Lessons. Written by.

There are a great many good books that share insight from business leaders on how young want-to-be-executives can advance through the ranks, unfortunately this isn't one of them.
On the positive side, there are a number of excellent quotes within the book, ranging from a suggestion of managing time by opening mail at 4:30 PM and thus not loosing control of your day every time a so-called emergency occurs to encouraging everyone to take more risks. The quotes are arranged into sections by their relevance to a particular topic. These topics include "things you should know", "things you'll be better off knowing", "things you'll be nicer off knowing" and "things learned the hard way". Edler does an exceptional job explaining some of the more cryptic or just incredibly short quotes.
Unfortunately, filling the 200-or-so pages not containing valuable insight are repeated suggestions to spend more time with family and find religion. While these topics are obviously important to their contributors, one really has to wonder if these people would be where they are now, if they had taken their own advice. Moreover, while the suggestions are clearly valid, they really don't need to be repeated numerous times throughout the book; some editorial discursion should have been exercised.
The 242 page book will take most readers only about an hour to complete, as many pages contain only 25-50 words, in very large print (note that this is not designed to be a "big print" book as Edler's side-column notes are generally printed in a very small print). Moreover, many of these "CEOs and Other Smart Executives" are virtual unknowns, like many of the companies that they work for. There are some pleasant surprises buried within, but much is simply filler.
If you are looking for a waxing, philosophical guide to living what the contributors feel would have been a better life, for them, then this is the book for you. If on the other hand, you are looking for a book about how to advance through the ranks, and become the successor to one of these contributors, you would be better served elsewhere.

Ok I must say I was not expecting all that much from this book, however I was pleasently suprised. This book mixes life tips, stories about the "Golden Girls" experience, and a little biographical information. It is extremely funny, and always seems to cheer up anyone I lend the book too, if they are in a bad mood. I would reccomend this book to ANYONE!

Its not the best piece of writing I've ever read and its obvious the author is just your average actress with a book deal but...it *is* Estelle Getty! If you THOUGHT you loved her before you'll love her even more after reading this cute little quasi-memoir! Its just just a quick, quirky book by a loveable little lady!

My father and Mr. Edler were friends for over 25 years. Unfortunately, Mr. Edler passed away recently. It was a loss.
I am writing this not just to set jastraub straight, as anyone who is capable of thinking rationally will see that jastraub's opinion is lacking of qualification. While it is possible he or she is very knowledgable about business there is no evidence of this in his or her comments.
I must admit I am biased regarding any of the books or projects that Mr. Edler was a part of. Not just because I knew him, but my father is one of the contributors to the book. I remember when I got a copy of the book before it was released. I was a 25-year-old police officer at the time. I have learned a great deal from "If" over the years. I keep one copy in my bedroom and a copy as a reader in my guest bathroom. While I cannot speak for Mr. Edler I believe that he wrote this book to help people in not only their career, but in life. If I am not mistaken all of his works were of a similar nature. I strongly recommend "Through the Valley", also by Mr. Edler. This is an excellent book for anyone, especially those involved in fields or situations where there is unexpected death (hospitals, law enforcement, etc.)
Thank you for reading my review. Take care.

This book is simply one the most compelling collections of intelligent opinions, observations, and suggestions that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Any person, regardless of age, will enjoy reading these varied opinions on what it takes to become successful in business and in life. What a pleasure!

I picked up this book in a bookstore one day and read the entire book on my lunch hour the next. Page after page, it just "hits home." I would recommend this book to anyone, young or old, who is unsure of themselves or where they want to go in life. There's nothing like the voice of experience!
Edler did a wonderful job gathering these quotes. They are very helpful. I read it one or two of its quotes every day. You should have it!
