Professional reading a business book.

The latest business book I finished is Find Your Why by Simon Sinek with David Mead & Peter Docker. This book was not really content that should have been a book, though. I feel like I wasted a lot of time because of that. There were a few tidbits of information in the book but…

My most recent read was Instructions for a Heatwave by Maggie O’Farrell which I’m not sure why it’s named that. Aside from taking place in a London heatwave where there was water rationing and such there’s nothing heatwave about it. It was very fitting, though, because where I live (northern California) just recently had two…

Emotional Agility – Business Book Review

Professional reading a business book.

There have been some good business books I’ve read and some bad. There aren’t too many in the middle which I can’t say were excellent and I also can’t say they’re bad. The most recent business-related book I’ve read, Emotional Agility by Susan David is right in the middle. It was well-written but at times…

The books I’ve been reading for the past few years have brought me all over the world and during many times. I’ve traveled by book to France, Russia, China, Canada, England, and everywhere in between from thousands of years BCE to the relatively present. My most recent book, Flight of the Sparrow by Amy Belding…

In Awe – Business Book Review

I had a lot of high hopes for In Awe by John O’Leary but in the end it did let down a bit. It’s not because it wasn’t a good book or that it wasn’t interesting to read, it was. The reason is that what I had hoped to get out of it and what…

Range of Motion – Fun Book Review

I started Range of Motion by Elizabeth Berg just after the last business book I finished. My first impression of the book was not spectacular, as I previously wrote. Just because my first impression wasn’t good with Range of Motion doesn’t mean I’m going to stick by that incorrect impression. After finishing the entire book…

Professional reading a business book.

The 16th book I’ve finished this year so far is The Rise of America by Marin Katusa. This one was a business book which is all about how America is actually rising in prominence and wealth rather than declining. There are a lot of naysayers about the US declining I must admit but I’m not…

Another fun book finished and another great book I do recommend everyone reads. The book is The Forgotten Home Child by Genevieve Graham and is about Home Children that were sent from England to Canada from sometime in the 1800s all the way past WWII. This particular book follows the journey of Winny from the…

Another business book done. I finished up Fearless by Tim Kintz a few days ago but since finishing it fell on a Thursday I didn’t have a chance to write anything and don’t feel like doing so on a Friday evening. I may enjoy writing these book reviews but not enough to use my Friday…
