John's January 1999 release, How to Get What You Want, and Want What You Have: A Practical and Spiritual Guide to Personal Success, is a departure from his Mars and Venus relationship-oriented books.

The much-awaited book entered the best-seller's list at #1 and has since sold over 750,000 copies. It is also the material behind his popular Personal Success Seminars, which John leads in cities around the United States.
