"Cinchology is a well-defined roadmap to leading a successful life. It is written by an extraordinary man who has reached great heights on a journey that began in a childhood battered by a depth of poverty that would have permanently crippled most. I have known and admired Robert Louis Poole since he was little Bobby, the sweet child who’d just been taken from his family by child welfare. I remember him well, wearing too tight clothes and hand-me-down shoes, undaunted. Even then, he had remarkable grit, ingenuity, and determination along with uncommon gentleness and the joyful optimism that would bring his family back together, help him triumph over any and all hardships thrown his way, and ultimately make it possible for him to achieve great success in every area of his life. Cinchology shares with the reader his essential lesson that all good work is hard work, a guiding principle that has made him a great father and husband and successful entrepreneur. For Bobby, the keenest of listeners, giving back has always been as important as succeeding, so it is no surprise that he has taken all he has learned to teach others seeking to improve their own lives these well-earned effective step-by-step lessons. Cinchology is infused on every page with his wisdom, humility, gratitude, humor, and joy."
— Gretchen Buchenholz, Founder and Executive Director of Association to Benefit Children and life-long friend


"Life is filled with ups and downs as well as many unexpected twists and turns. In Cinchology, author Robert Poole shares life lessons in a transparent and vulnerable way that go well beyond the cliché of “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” His often-funny stories demonstrate the power of intention, grit and the resilient capacity of the indomitable human spirit!  Cinchology’s use of stories, examples and self-examination exercises can put a life of abundance within the reader’s grasp!"
