I remember the days of watching Deborah Norville on television so eloquently reporting the latest news happenings. Now it is my privilege to tell you a little about Deborah's new book, The Power of Respect: Benefit from the Most Forgotten Element of Success that I just finished reading. The book starts with Deborah and the Dictionary's definition of respect, "How you look back at yourself and others." And so the journey of self respect begins at home with Deborah sharing many insightful stories, resourceful quotes, facts and scriptures that bring us back to the necessary foundation in relationships with our families, businesses and schools. If you desire to be more creative, happier and more helpful, learn about this most valuable tool called respect that Deborah shares so beautifully with us in her writings. I loved this book and especially this quote - "Respect is music the deaf can hear and the blind can see." We all have value and importance. I give this book 5+ stars! ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0785227601, Hardcover)

Respect, a lost value in our world today, is the latest subject of research for Inside Edition anchor and best-selling author Deborah Norville. Citing scientific studies and using stories based on personal interviews, Norville makes a compelling case for the Power of Respect--the simple act of treating people as though they really matter.

Amazon Exclusive: A Message to Readers from Deborah Norville

Respect. Thanks to Aretha, we all know how to spell it, but lately there seems to be less and less of it in society. My job as anchor of Inside Edition provides me the opportunity to report the latest examples of disrespect in society--and lately there have been plenty. My frustration over what seemed like an endless drumbeat of these stories (Balloon boy, Kanye Wilson, Jon & Kate, Congressional Representative Wilson shouting at the President) prompted me to uncover the academic proof that treating others with respect boomerangs benefits BACK to you. In business, education, personal relationships, the Power of Respect is undeniable. Whether it's saving money in business, helping kids score higher on academic tests, or solidify relationships--the Power of Respect has benefits for anyone who makes a point of practicing the Golden Rule.
