A few weeks ago, Geraldine Markel asked me to review her book. The focus, fighting distractions, is a war near and dear to me. I am constantly fighting it.
My review of ACTIONS, should help you determine it’s value for you, my reader. It can help uncover symptoms, consequences, as well as develop effective -actions- for dealing with them.
The book is a quick, light read, that is enjoyable. Most of us have ‘been there’ at some point. Not as happy as we could be, not as excited, perhaps dreading going to work. We’ve heard many of the things the book discusses, but being reminded (and in a fresh format) can be very useful.
Book review, for leaders who are *struggling to steady their leadership compass; *wonder why their teams do not seem to trust them; *or are looking for ways to help their teams share their values.
For those of you having followed me a while, you know I do a fair number of book reviews. In the interest of continual self-improvement I am constantly reading new books. Shortly after I finish each (business) book I generally post a review.
My favorite tool streamlining the process is iPad’s reader application. Elegantly implemented, simple to use, iBooks is more than ‘just a reader’ application. It is also a tool you can leverage to really make life easier.
Why People Fail is actually a twist on words. It could just as easily been titled along the lines of How to Be Successful. Siimon provides an easily read book that highlights 16 key points underlying how people set themselves up to fail.
Step by step, Siimon discusses ways readers can incrementally work to improve themselves, from self-image, through proper health and exercise, to rituals and persistence…to name a few.
