Follow the Yellow Brick Road
A Harvard Psychologist's Guide to Becoming a Superstar
By Myra S. White, Ph.D., J.D.

How do ordinary people like Oprah, Warren Buffett, Lance Armstrong and the characters in The Wizard of Oz become superstars? What do they do that catapults them to success while others struggle valiantly but only achieve moderate career success?

Follow the Yellow Brick Road answers these questions based on Dr. White's research into how over 60 people from business, sports, media and other arenas achieved exceptional career success. The book provides valuable guidance and insights for individuals who want to increase their career success, managers who want to bring out the best in their employees, coaches who want to help others succeed, and people who just want to understand the success process.

Overview of Follow the Yellow Brick Road

In the book Dr. White identifies three factors that lead to extraordinary success. First, superstars have the same complex mix of talents and weaknesses that we all have. Like us and the characters in The Wizard of Oz, superstars are imperfect beings. What sets superstars apart is that they know how to capitalize on their talents and minimize the potentially adverse effects of their weaknesses. Second, superstars understand the process by which you build success. They know the right steps to take, and they are aware that no one achieves success alone. Like Dorothy and company superstars find a route that gets them where they need to go, and they get others to help them. Third, superstars know how to manage their emotions and psychological states. Just as Dorothy and her companions defeat the dreaded Wicked Witch of the West, superstars are able to set aside their worries and fears and deliver their best performances when disaster threatens. Ultimately they climb to the top because they understand the path to a successful career and know how to manage their talents and themselves.

Follow the Yellow Brick Road shows you the way to success.

It provides you with the nine-step road map that superstars follow.

Each step of the roadmap is illustrated with examples from the lives of the superstars in the book. These examples teach you the strategies and techniques that superstars have used to create extraordinary success.

By following the roadmap and applying these strategies and techniques you can bring your inner superstar to life and achieve more success than your ever dreamed possible.
