52 Weeks of Book Reviews. Week # 8 – Bulletproof Business: Protect Yourself Against The Competition by Ryan Stewman

  There are only a few times while reading this that I remembered that this was a business book.  For the most part Ryan is just telling a story about how some interesting stuff happen in his life. It’s kind of like a train wreck in the sense that I just couldn’t help myself from looking at …

52 Weeks of Book Reviews. Week # 7 – The 10X Rule: The Only Difference Between Success and Failure – by Grant Cardone

I once had an English teacher inform me that in order for my audience to actually receive and retain any kind of message I would need to tell them what I’m about to tell them, then actually tell them and finally tell them what I just told them. I had to hear this several times …

52 Weeks of Book Reviews. Week # 6 – It’s Called WORK For A Reason! – by Larry Winget

There are few times when I don’t appreciate a good wake up call and Larry delivers them like no one else. This is the 3rd book of his that I’ve read and they all have the same no nonsense style that I’ve come to enjoy. He’s brash and he makes no apologies so if you are …

52 Weeks of Book Reviews. Week # 5 – Blink – The Power of Thinking Without Thinking – by Malcolm Gladwell

If you have read any of Malcolm’s other books you know that he is a great story teller. I actually listened to this book on Audio while driving to and from work and more than once this week I found myself sitting in the driveway at home and parking lot at work just listening to the various …

52 Weeks of Book Reviews. Week # 4 – Selling to anyone over the phone – Renee P. Walkup

This one is a bit of a cheat because I read the original edition almost 10 years ago and didn’t even realize that there was now an updated 2nd edition. I must say that the team improved and updated the content for us and it makes a difference. I’m in a Call Center environment and …

52 Weeks of Book Reviews. Week # 3 – 3 Sales Tips from “THE ART of WAR” – Sun Tzu

There are very few books that are so sparse but have inspired so much commentary. The book itself was written more or less about 2500 years ago and the first English Language versions didn’t show up until the early 1900’s. For roughly 2400 years this book was known in China but in very few other …

52 Weeks of Book Reviews. Week #2 “HBR’s 10 Must Reads on Leadership” – Featuring Peter Drucker

In week 2 of my year long journey through new books I found this gem. It’s really 10 small books/articles combined into one, but it’s not light reading, it’s a lengthy 240 pages and it’s packed with info. I’ve read Harvard Business Review for about 10 years now, picking and choosing the topics to read …
