  • "At last a book on Jobs that doesn't..."

    Overall

    Firstly I do have to start with a word of caution. Dan continually references the bible throughout this book and offers a strong Christian perspective. I would urge the listener not to be put off by this as the principals he discusses are in any event great principals, whatever your religious persuasion or otherwise. For the most part this is fine although once or twice it does border a bit on a sermon (complete with a bit of a dig at Tom Cruise/ Nicole Kidman!) . The book is also largely written from an American perspective. OK, so now the reasons as to why this warrants 5 stars. 1/ Dan reads very well, he has a very soothing, down-to-earth and yet also very passionate voice- he's a joy to listen to. 2/ Not many people have written about this subject and yet it is a very important subject that affects everyone on the globe to some capacity 3/ Dan turned his life around and is open and honest about what happened and what he gained from this experience 4/ there is a lot of sage advice here based on experience.

    In 2009, the U.S. unemployment rate approached ten percent. Today, when new work is found, it may not be traditional. Studies estimate half of the American workforce will soon consist of freelancers, consultants, independent contractors, entreprenuers, "electronic immigrants," and so forth. Are you ready for the new normal? Dan Miller has seen it coming for years.

  • "Bit too long otherwise fab!"

    Overall

    Don't really know why I got this...in the words of the book's mantra 'sometimes you just do things'. On the one hand this book is extremely ego-driven and some may find this too much. On the other hand, this book managed to keep me completely rivetted for the duration. If ever you need to understand what 'endurance' means then look no further, this book totally defines the word. The reading is exceptional...and to be honest I was just a tad upset when I later found out that it wasn't Scott himself. I'm not a runner and I'm not a vegan....having listened to this I feel compelled to at least seriously consider both. Intelligent, inspiring and honest...although just that little bit too long.

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.

    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.
