    Malcolm Gladwell: Outliers: The Story of Success
    “This book is about the meaning of work…" -MG
    It drives home the value of opportunity and that specializing (10,000 hours or more) in something can bring significant success, but not without practical knowledge and just enough raw intelligence. (*****)

  • John Assaraf: The Answer: Grow Any Business, Achieve Financial Freedom, and Live an Extraordinary Life

    John Assaraf: The Answer: Grow Any Business, Achieve Financial Freedom, and Live an Extraordinary Life
    John takes the principle "You become what you think about" to a new level based on scientific brain research. I read the book after seeing John live, because his story is impressive and he gets the 'what you think about' message across better than most. He's a new generation of Earl Nightingale. (****)

  • Alice Schroeder: The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life

    Alice Schroeder: The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life
    Starts out slow, but in the end you get a realistic view into Buffett life. One myth buster is that he's not the Buy & Hold investor the press plays him to be. He took on significant risk at times got in and out as the market fluctuated--with many losses along the way. (***)

  • George Leonard: Mastery: The Keys to Success and Long-Term Fulfillment

    George Leonard: Mastery: The Keys to Success and Long-Term Fulfillment
    I met George Leonard in 2004 @ PSI MLS. Unfortunately, it's taken me years to read the book that brought him fame. The principles are timeless and my respect and admiration for this man continues to grow--including a desire to become a student of Aikido. I highly recommend it! (*****)

  • Craig Stull: Tuned In: Uncover the Extraordinary Opportunities That Lead to Business Breakthroughs

    Craig Stull: Tuned In: Uncover the Extraordinary Opportunities That Lead to Business Breakthroughs
    A good book--even if it is written by marketeers ;-) The one thing that stands out for me after this read, is the emphatic opinion that your own personal opinion about a product feature or need is irrelevant. The point being that you must get real market feedback from real potential users of your product. Good advice. (****)

  • Randy Pausch: The Last Lecture

    Randy Pausch: The Last Lecture
    I finished reading this book 6 weeks before Randy died in summer 2008. His message was so impactful--I have made contributions to the Marc Lustgarten Pancreatic Cancer Foundation. Remember to never forget your childhood dreams! (*****)
