Dr. Henry Cloud is an acclaimed leadership expert, psychologist, and New York Times bestselling author whose books have sold over 10 million copies. In 2014, Success magazine named Dr. Cloud one of the top 25 most influential leaders in personal growth and development. He graduated from Southern Methodist University with a BS in psychology and completed his PhD in clinical psychology at Biola University.
According to Cloud, a clinical psychologist and coauthor of Nine Things You Simply Must Do, an individual's integrity will ultimately determine whether he or she succeeds. While brains, competencies, deal-making abilities, and opportunities help, a person needs six character dimensions, including the capacities to connect and build trust, to embrace and resolve negative reality, and to rise above ordinary human selfishness and find one's role in the big picture. While more judicious editing would have made the book more concise, it's a worthwhile read that will help people fill some "gaps" in their lives and stand a better chance at achieving their goals.
