Inspirational and enlightening
This compelling and easy-flowing story of a man whose difficult life events become his greatest

C Foster

Inspirational – a book for our times
We often forget in the hurly-burly world of today to look after ourselves and to make the right choices with both regard to home and business life. We can be “in” things that deep that we can’t see the wood for the trees & try to do everything ourselves; we forget that there are plenty of people “out there” who would like to help us if we just gave them the opportunity. Sometimes we need a nudge… or nudges… or a kick in the… to make us stop, think and then change.
So, whether you run a business or are part of one, have a read of “David Turner’s” story and see how easily you can apply the Ten Steps to Real Success into your business and life & see what impact it can have on you.
Thoroughly enjoyed the book

10 Steps To Real Success
This book is very well written. Clear and concise in his message for the 10 steps to real success.
Although this book is a novel it felt like Paul (the author) was talking to me. A few things that he talks about really resonated with me and as a result I’ve started to think differently and more positive about things.

Wonderful book that really helped me
I finished this book much faster than I normally would finish a book. It just drew me in. The characters are lovely and very relatable. And the story is inspiring and wholesome. What I really enjoyed about it was the feeling of fully consenting to being taught some life lessons and skills. You know that’s what it’s doing and it’s absolutely ok. There are a few moments where I shed a tear and bits that felt like they spoke to me personally. Thank you for sharing this with the world Paul.

Just who is the man with the scarlet socks?
David’s story is told with vulnerability and honesty. The book is beautifully written and gives you a gentle reminder to stop, think, and reflect away from the hustle and bustle of life that we all find ourselves in. Regardless of your belief system or background, I’m certain that everyone can take something away from this book and adapt it to apply it to their own life, or share a message from the book with others who may need it too.
A perfect combination of deeper, at times emotional moments, mixed with relatable life lessons.
A touching, intriguing and truly magical story.

This story could relate to many of us and is so beautifully put together by the author. Very inspirational and a real page turner that pulls you in as each chapter unfolds. There are some poignant moments that make you stop, reflect and the really think about similar situations you have been in. A must read for anyone heading up a business of any size. Can’t wait for the second book!

A thought provoking and potentially life changing book.
I really enjoyed Paul’s book. As a story it has twists and turns and interesting characters, beautifully brought to life by the author. On a deeper level it got me thinking about changes I need to make to my life to appreciate it more. It touches upon faith but not in preaching way and I highly recommend it as a thought-provoking but easily accessible read.
