A few of you have asked me for book recommendations…
Well, I read a LOT.
When we remodeled our house a coupla years ago, Deb insisted that I plow through my stacks and stacks of books — most of them piled on the floor in corners and bedside — and “weed out” the stuff I didn’t need.
It seemed like an impossible task, but I did it.
And you know what?
I ended up hauling a whole slew of shopping bags filled with sci-fi novels, crime books, and even old business books to a local used book store.
It killed me. But I did net $147 in store credit.
Anyway, there are some books I’ll never “weed out.” Ever. I read ’em again and again.
A few are novels. Most, though, are business-oriented, self-help, or motivational.
And in those categories, there are five that I always have handy copies of. Sometimes multiple copies, so I can lend ’em out to friends.
Time after time, these five books encourage and refresh me. And I usually pick up a few new ideas from them on repeated readings, too.
I think they’re essential reading for anyone who’s struggling with the ol’ 9-to-5 and trying to plot their way off the job treadmill.
I spent part of my afternoon today, as I often do, on my backyard patio. And I talked into my teeny-weeny Sony digital recorder about these five very special books. Just for you. (At least I did until the wind really whipped up and drove me back indoors.)
Here’s the recording. Click to immediately listen, or right-click and save the MP3 to your computer.
Hope you enjoy it…
Good talkin’ to ya!
