  • "one of the best self help books eve..."

    Overall

    A fantastic piece of work.

    I'm on my second read-through. I have bought a hard copy on Amazon to use as a reference. This is the best of recent psychology put into a practical self-improvement book.

    Personally, I am developing a strategy to implement just about everything in this book that are not already doing.

    I read many self-help books but I think this is one of the best ever written.

    Meet Emily and Paul: The parents of two young children, Emily is the newly promoted VP of marketing at a large corporation while Paul works from home or from clients' offices as an independent IT consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. Just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

  • "Inspiring"

    Overall

    I found this book immensely inspiring. I am thinking up ways to differentiate myself, form differentiating organisations and inspire others.

    The criticism given by others on this book, that the anecdotes and examples become repetitive are valid; and this loses a star. However the book is really good and well worth a read/reread. I will be following up on this with some of these lectures on the “golden circle" which are available on YouTube.

    Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

That world is dead. Now, the world's money is traded by computer code, inside black boxes in heavily guarded buildings. Even the experts entrusted with your cash don't know what's happening to it. And the very few who do aren't about to tell - because they're making a killing.
