Why did I pick this book: I participated in the blog tour hosted by Tribute Books. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)


Did I enjoy this book: This book was good. Quest, Inc. was a quick read that had some entertaining parts in it. It was not a book that I had to read every free chance I had though. 

The five main characters – the mentors of Quest – each had their own issues to work through as they helped their clients. Robert, the body builder health nut, had fallen off the wagon and reverted back to his “fat” stage. He got back on the wagon after he hit rock bottom with the help of his friends. He recognized the choices he had to make and the impulses that everyone faces. Carter, the psychologist, has issues of her own to deal with but she was the driving force behind the formation of Quest and keeping everyone together to help others. Mickey, the property mogul, was the character that I liked the least. He was very arrogant and hard to trust and like. Jay, the inspirational guru so-to-speak, seemed to be the one person in this group that got it the most – you can’t make other people be what you want them to be, you have to help them be a better version of themselves. And Alexia, the beauty expert, who seemed to be the most superficial but she has a lot going on with herself and her goddaughter.

Watching each of their journeys was interesting and kept me reading. Also watching them help others (though sometimes it wasn’t apparent if the help was working) was also fascinating to read. Quest, Inc. read like a self-help book in some respects, but not in a bad way. 

The one thing that I did not enjoy so much was the scene jumping. It may have been the digital version that I received, but there did not seem to be many clear transitions. For example, at one point Robert was giving Victoria a tour of the Quest facility and the next paragraph he was in front of the refrigerator contemplating what to eat. These transitions made it difficult to really follow along smoothly. But, as I said, it may have been the review copy that I was given. 

Would I recommend it: Maybe. It would depend on the reader. 


Will I read it again: I will not. I would be interested in reading the next book in this series, though, because Quest, Inc. ended with a cliffhanger. 


About the book – from the publisher: 
The World’s #1 Personal Development Agency . . . has to prove it. 

What if you brought together five top personal development experts—equipped with virtually everything we know about unleashing human potential—and gave them some lives to change? Could they really coach anyone to lose fifty pounds, fix a broken relationship, or get rich? What would they do for a homeless person, or a pro-golfer trailing at the back of her league? How about taking the racism out of a racist, or turning a hellish employee into a ray of sunshine? 

Welcome to Quest, Inc. They say they can change your life. Now, as they’re followed by an investigative journalist from one of the world’s leading news publications, they have to prove it—or be damned as charlatans.

Based on real life peak performance and transformational strategies, you’ll see the highs and lows everyone faces on the road to self-realization—especially the experts. Get ready for breakthrough . . . or breakdown.
