Zap! Pow! Kazam!: 11 Super Powers to Change Your Career & Life is a refreshing take on the overdone idea of teaching people how to help themselves in their careers. Utilizing the innovative premise that “super powers” exist, although perhaps in a different guise than the usual tights and capes, Jennifer Webb has created a self-help book for the masses.
Ideas like spontaneous combustion as being able to inspire people to action, omnilinguistics - which means tailoring your language to your audience to be better able to get through to them - and (my personal favorite) contagious courage, the ability to keep on keeping on even when your scared to death, are some of the super powers Webb identifies.
An easy and fun read, Zap! Pow! Kazam! should become a self-help bible along the lines of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Read it if you want to get your act together.
