‘I wholeheartedly recommend this engaging and enjoyable book to anyone that might be
questioning what to do with their life – stop what you are doing and read it! It is full of the
wisdom of ordinary people who have woken up to their potential, braced themselves for the
punches and come out on top!’
Brian Colbert, author of The Happiness Habit and co-founder of The Irish institute of NLP.
‘Open Michael’s book and learn that there is another way – and that it is up to us all to make
change happen if we want a better world.’

University, Changsha, China.
‘The COVID-19 crisis has caused many people to reconsider the meaning of their life and
how they want to live it. Fundamental changes to our working life have enabled people to
relocate their homes, to change jobs or to dramatically alter their choice of career. For anyone
seeking to find the courage to make similar choices, reading Showing Your True Colours will
give you the strength to live your future life on your terms.’
Professor Thomas M. Cooney, Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin), Ireland.
‘If you want to live a life filled with meaning, read this inspirational book full of motivating
stories from real people. Michael has such amazing experience in helping people to discover
their true self on this journey called “life”.’
Associate Professor Marina Ochkovskaya, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia.
‘Aristotle said, “Know thyself and become what you are”, and Michael follows that great
thought. His book is full of inspiring stories of the journeys that people made to find
themselves and the destinations they wanted to bring their life and work to. They show that
God’s plan is there, waiting to be found and then pursued so that you can thrive and flourish,
and when you do so will all those around you. A great read!’
Professor Przemek Zbierowski, University of Economics, Katowice, Poland.
Conversations in Singapore
An invaluable book which reminds us that we define ourselves by our choices. Choose to read this.

‘It is difficult to answer the question: “What is true success?” But Michael’s conversations have shown me what true success means to me, and you have to read them too to learn what true success means for YOU.’
Dr Imre Gombkötő, PhD, Associate Professor, University of Miskolc – Hungary
‘In this his second book, Michael has once again managed to surprise me. Here he gives us the possibility to have an insight on the heritage of Hotel Falah giving us the blessing of motivation. Following the story of his personal growth and success while staying there we have the benefit of being guided through our own personal achievements. This is the best book on life recipes: it defines the right ingredients, determines the best processes and yet gives total freedom of individual choice in how to live a life of true success. I am really looking forward to reading his third book!!’
Professor Domagoja Buljan Barbača, PhD, Head of Department of Finance and Accounting, University of Split – Croatia
‘A great story from the Silk Road: once you open the book, you cannot stop reading until you get the whole story, the whole message and the whole wisdom. Every reader will benefit from having read Conversations in Singapore. It is a story which had to be shared, a book which had to be written and a message which has to be read … Michael is a great storyteller and in this book he definitely has a story to tell. It is like reading Paulo Coelho, but this time a non-fiction.’
Ing. Michal Menšík, PhD, Vice-Rector for External Relations, Moravian University College, Olomouc – Czech Republic
‘Michael Daly is one of the right people to move us forward to find out what true success is and his book is the perfect way to show clearly how we can reach true success by ourselves.’

Nick Williams, internationally acclaimed author and inspired entrepreneur – London, England
I recently experienced two moments of enlightenment – listening to Michael’s lectures and reading his book on self-leadership. A simplicity of recommendations leading to peace between your mind and heart, a clear vision of your own life and encouragement to immediately turn your thoughts to the inner belief that “everything is going to work out just right”! You cannot remain at the same stage of your life journey as you were before opening the first pages of this book.

Michael Daly has given us an outstanding prescription for getting the kind of satisfaction we want from our lives. In his Six Traits of Self-Leadership: How to Create a Life of Success and Happiness, he has shown how satisfaction is not just about some outsider telling us what to do but really about self-leadership, the way to real personal happiness. Michael gives us the keys to self-leadership with his six traits and illustrates each with down-to-earth examples. The ideas are easily accessible and presented in a friendly style that anyone can understand.

Six Traits of Self-Leadership makes for great reading. It will inspire readers to reach their full potential in life, regardless of age, education or profession. The style is easy and personal. Not only does the author make a valuable synthesis of ideas from different fields - psychology, time management and entrepreneurship – but he also gives readers advice from his own experience or that of his clients. The book is practical, filled with inspiring thoughts and quotes, written with determination, passion and a sense of humor.
