The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World's Top Minds
The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World's Top Minds

Review: Disappointed. I enjoy the ‘feel’ of any book I read. The pulp paper provided here was unpleasant. I think his book could have been easily summarized into less than twenty pages without sacrificing anything. A lot of this material seemed more like ‘fill.’ There are several other popular books on this subject which were superior. Read more

When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing

Review: I appreciated the practicality of the information. Anyone can use it for their personal schedule but the information can be used in a much broader context, on the company or even societal level, to help us to be happier and more productive people. Read more

Eight Unconventional CEOs and Their Radically Rational Blueprint for Success

Review: If you are a CEO of a publicly traded company this book is for you. Some good stories and examples but allocation of capital, stock buy backs, leveraged debt; there wasn't much in here about managing and leadership. It's more like a blueprint for creating shareholder value. Read more

The 7 C's to Build a Winning Team in Business - and Life

Review: Absolutely loved this book. Gordon and Smith do a great job balancing each other as well as ideas. I love the fact they included conversations with Coach Smith regarding the struggles of the Atlanta Falcons while he was in charge. Many authors would only include the "feel good" parts, and omit the trials and tribulations. This book is great for beginning coaches as well as veterans. It emphasizes many of the topics that many of us think about daily, and encourages the reader to focus on the impo... Read more

Janesville: An American Story
Janesville: An American Story

Review: Great read! I lived in Janesville when "the plant" ruled the blue-collared world. Everyone I knew had a connection to assembly line. A Chevy dealer friend of mine in Galesburg, Illinois always told me the Janesville factory produced vehicles with the fewest post manufacturing problems. Most of the workers did not like the assembly line jobs but the pay and benefits allowed people to buy houses and of course new cars. When the plant closed...a big void was left that could never be filled. Everyon... Read more

and Discovered Life Is Worth More Than Anything You Can Buy in a Store

Review: I love, love, love this book so much that I got my lazy ass up to actually write a review for once! To go a significant amount of time without buying stuff is something that I have thought about for a while and yet never actually made the step, because WHAT IF I REALLY NEED SOMETHING or more importantly won't this suck most of the fun out of my life?
