“It’s the one commodity with zero cost and unlimited gain. It won’t shrink your wallet or reduce your list of friends. It’s respect. And, as Deborah Norville skillfully reminds us, practicing the power of respect could quite possibly improve the course of society. Thanks, Deborah, for this insightful study. Count me in!”

“Just what the doctor ordered! Respect means consideration of others and Deborah Norville makes a powerful, and respectful, case as to why we would enrich our own lives and of those around us by making a more conscious effort to live up to this ‘forgotten element’ of living.”

Steve Forbes

“The foundation of every relationship, whether at home or work, is respect. If you don’t respect the people in your life, then you’ll never become someone they can respect. In The Power of Respect, Deborah Norville shines a spotlight on our self-focused society and reminds us of the life-changing power of valuing other people above ourselves.”

There is something in this book for everyone, be they parent, child, teacher, student, boss, employee, or random Joe on the street.

Ms. Norville addresses some of the key problems facing our society today (bad economy, chaotic schools, high stress) and shows you how respect can help turn those things around. Having self-respect, and also showing respect for others, can have tremendous power, as illustrated by the many examples and anecdotes in this book.

Respect is a relatively simple concept, but one that is severely lacking in our society. And really, we're all to blame. As much as I hate to admit it, it really is easier to snipe back at someone's rude behavior than to show them respect, but the latter will really get you better results.
