52 Weeks of Book Reviews. Week #30 – The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by by Stephen R. Covey

I basically write these reviews for myself, a way to hold myself accountable to reading a book a week for the entire year. It’s amazing to me that it’s already been 30 weeks into the year. July is coming to an end and I am astounded at the knowledge I have gained from the 30 …

52 Weeks of Book Reviews. Week #29 – In The Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives by Steven Levy

Google is such a huge part of everyday life for me that it almost fades into the background at times.

52 Weeks of Book Reviews. Week #28 – Who Moved My Cheese?: An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life by Spencer Johnson

This is a classic parable. Some people love it, some people hate it but it seems to always make an impact. The book is closing in on 20 years and still seems relevant. I suppose that’s the reason it’s already a classic. The story itself has a timeless quality that should endure for many more …

52 Weeks of Book Reviews. Week #27 – Dialogue: The Art Of Thinking Together by William Isaacs

If you know me then you know that I often talk about the Duologue and how not just Salespeople, but people in general need to actively listen more and just talk less. This is a book that harps on that concept and backs it up with years of research and quantifiable results. I know that …

Jeff has a system and a set of rules. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the dirty little secret in the Sales Coaching profession is that every system works a certain percentage of the time. The trick to being successful in our industry isn’t the system you use, it’s finding the right …

Gary Vaynerchuk is a phenomenon. His legion of fans are loyal and loud and if you haven’t heard about him before now, (or more likely you’ve heard about him but just didn’t reach out to consume any of his material), it’s time to dive in and see what it’s all about.   52 Weeks of …

52 Weeks of Book Reviews. Week #21 – The Sales Bible, New Edition: The Ultimate Sales Resource – by Jeffrey Gitomer

I read the Little Red of Book of Sales, but hadn’t read the book that put Gitomer on the map. The Sales Bible is a TOME of information that just doesn’t quit. I did the audio book version, but there were so many lists that now I’ve got to go back to the physical copy …
