Some worthwhile reads…


Here are a few books I’ve read in the past year, which I enjoyed and thought you might too.

The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor – an informative discussion on positive psychology

The Brain that Changes Itself by Dr. Norman Doidge – a fascinating collection of anecdotes by this psychiatrist on the study of neuroplasticity.

Drive by Dan Pink – interesting and somewhat irreverent book about motivation.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson– as if you haven’t heard of this. Didn’t live up to the hype for me, but enjoyable regardless.

Why Work Sucks and How to Fix It by Cali Ressler and Jody Thompson – book about changing the work place to one where we manage the work and not the people.  Results Only!

The Art of the Sale by Philip Delves Broughton – analysis of several very different successful sales people, what drives them and why they are successful.

Touching the Void by Joe Simpson  – incredible true story of near death experience of two mountain climbers.

I hope you take the time to read a few and you enjoy them as much as I did!
