Prevail: Seven Keys to Create a Personal Victory

Finalist in the National Indie Excellence Awards of 2015

 

As originally reviewed by the staff of AuthorsTalkAboutIt.com

Prevail: Seven Keys to Create a Personal Victory is an emotional self-help book penned by life coach Betty Withrow. In it, the “seven keys” are: cheerfulness, patience, friendliness, creativity, fortitude, perseverance, and completion. For each, Withrow utilizes her own enlightening, and sometimes horrific, personal experiences as educational tools with which to inspire her readers. She shares them, along with her methods of coping, in an effort to help others achieve the level of blissful victory that she has in her own life. 

Despite Withrow’s insistence that “this isn’t an autobiography,” it certainly reads like one for a good portion of the book. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing. Her stories are poignant and insightful, without being plagued by trivial or irrelevant details. They are connected well into the main points that she makes, too, so that it is not a constant flip-flop between advice and story time. Rather, it is a very well-thought-out collection of anecdotes, reflections, and guidance that is sure to resonate with any reader. 
Betty Withrow’s writing is warm and inviting, with the kindly presence of a sweet conversation with a grandparent. It is also clear and blunt, with straightforward lessons and brilliantly proposed ideals. This combination makes Prevail: Seven Keys to Create a Personal Victory unique in its genre; it was as entertaining as it was inspirational. It is evident that there was a great deal of Withrow’s heart and soul put into this book, and for that reason, it is a most worthwhile read.
