Jolt! by Phil Cooke – Review

In a world where 65% of North Americans spend more time with their computer than with their spouse (sound familiar anybody?), where we can speak “face-to-face” with nearly anyone, anywhere in the world with just a click of a button, and where a brand new computer can seem obsolete in less than a year, technology and change seem to be some of the most prevalent themes in almost any one’s life.  In his book Jolt!, Phil Cooke offers us all advice on how to deal with this rapid change and “jolt” our own lives to find personal, financial, and professional fulfillment. 

All in all, I enjoyed this book.  I had a difficult time getting into it in the beginning, probably because I have a crazy busy life and really never have any time to read, but once I finally sat down and started seriously reading, I was amazed at how deeply Cooke affected me with his words and advice.  Jolt! takes kind of a tough love approach to helping us all affect true change in ourselves, our families, and the world.  Cooke isn’t afraid to give it to us straight (the author reminds us that any major change in our lives probably will alienate some people, that change is extremely difficult, and that sometimes people just can’t change – just to name a few examples of his tough love tactics), and I actually kind of like that!  Since reading the book, I find myself replaying Cooke’s words in my head over and over throughout my day.  Like many people, I have a really difficult time with change, but I know that change is a necessary component of growth. Jolt! has given me the tools to embrace change, and to actually make it work for me and my life.  I am excited to put the skills I learned while reading Jolt! into action – I’ll let you know how it turns out!
