Some really good ideas in the book that were immediately useful. It's not rocket science but then the most practical stuff rarely is.

It is a collection of papers so there is some repetition but I actually found that helpful in drilling in key ideas.

Only downside is that it seems like every tip or recommendation is alleged to be "the most important thing that makes people successful." After a while these statements loose their impact and even become a bit annoying.

Overall though would definitely recommend.

Really enjoyed this. Very interesting to hear the story behind what was an institution and is remains a legend.

It's fairly brief, I'd of happily heard more detail but I guess it means it does stay interesting.

Which battle was fought 'For England, Harry and St George'? Who demanded to be painted 'warts and all'? What - and when - was the Battle of the Bulge? In A Short History of England, bestselling author Simon Jenkins answers all these questions - and many more - as he tells the tumultuous story of a fascinating nation. From the invaders of the Dark Ages to today's coalition, via the Tudors, the Stuarts and two world wars, Jenkins weaves together a gripping narrative with all the most important and interesting dates in his own inimitable style.

This book had the info I was looking for but I personally found the style of writing, and the reading, very dry.

Really enjoyed this book for the combination of football and leadership aspects. I'm a fairly light touch football fan but if you've got any interest in both you're likely to really enjoy this book.

A Short History of Nearly Everything is Bill Bryson's fascinating and humorous quest to understand everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization. He takes subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry, and particle physics, and aims to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science. In the company of some extraordinary scientists, Bill Bryson reveals the world in a way most of us have never seen it before.

Stock market multimillionaire at 26, federal convict at 36, he partied like a rock star, lived like a king, and barely survived his rise and fall as an American entrepreneurial icon. By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting.

Jordan Belfort is obviously a clever guy and this comes across in how eloquently written this book is.

This is amplified by how incredibly well read this book is with vivid expression and colourful voices for each character.
