Reviewed by Tammy Ruggles for Readers' Favorite

Have a Positive Impact During Uncertain Times, by Peter Prichard, can be a life-changing addition to your career/self-help toolbox. Prichard has distilled vital information you can use in various areas of your life, from career to family relationships to community and the world beyond. It's like having a life coach in your pocket. The advice is practical, down-to-earth, and encourages change in healthy, positive ways. The message is that you are in control and you can make it happen. The author uses his life as a career counselor, youth advocate, and teacher--over 40 years of experience and expertise. If you want to make a difference in the world, but don't know where to start, or want to make a difference in your own life, but don't know how, this book was written for you.

Prichard pulls from his collected resources and delivers the cream of the crop when it comes to positive stories. He even invited readers to send their own stories of positive impact, via a link in the book, for possible publication in the future. In today's times of doubt and fear, this book can be a grounding force in someone's life. It isn't always easy to stay positive in dark times, but it is possible, and as this book shows, it's never too late to turn things around. I especially like the real-life success stories from job hunters to community leaders. There's something for everyone in this book. Some of the points covered are: Focus on the future, identify your strengths, live peak performance in your daily life, overcome challenges, among others. Yes, you can contribute to others, yourself, and your community in impactful ways. Being a former social worker, I definitely recommend Have a Positive Impact During Uncertain Times by Peter Prichard to individuals needing a hand up and helping professionals everywhere.
