BR 123: The Millionaire Upgrade by Richard Parkes Cordock

Category: 4 – SOMEDAY it (All Categories are 1 – Read ASAP!, 2 – BUY it!, 3 – SHELF it, 4 – SOMEDAY it)

Comments: This book was a real disappointment. I hardly ever put in books in the someday category but exceptions had to be made. I decided to listen to it as I was eager to get through a short book on a flight. I did.. And I was disappointed by the insight.

Perhaps this is a consequence of having read many great books on  career and entrepreneurship (So Good They Can’t Ignore You comes to mind), I found the book’s advice rhetorical – “follow your passion”, etc.

Top 3 learnings:

I’m going to pass on this for this book.

BR 58: The 4 Disciplines of Execution by Stephen Covey

Category: 4 – SOMEDAY it (All Categories are 1 – Read ASAP!, 2 – BUY it!, 3 – SHELF it, 4 – SOMEDAY it)

4 useful disciplines. The irony is that I don’t remember 3.

I do remember hearing the ‘Don’t Multi task’ discipline and feeling like hearing the book was worth it right and there for the reminder.

I wasn’t all that impressed with the book though – I remember not liking the audio experience. Maybe the paperback experience would be better.

BR 27: Go Put Your Strengths to Work by Marcus Buckingham

Category: 4 – SOMEDAY it (All Categories are 1 – Read ASAP!, 2 – BUY it!, 3 – SHELF it, 4 – SOMEDAY it)

Comments: I didn’t find the book to be helpful – maybe because I had gotten most of the insight from other books. Not much on impact bu definitely good on the concept and theme.

What to expect: I don’t remember – And I guess that says a lot.

BR 21: How to make big money in your small business – Jeffrey J Fox

Category: 4 – SOMEDAY it (All Categories are 1 – Read ASAP!, 2 – BUY it!, 3 – SHELF it, 4 – SOMEDAY it)

Comments: This was my final Jeffrey J Fox book. The issue I have with it is that it makes it look too easy, when it is not in reality..

What to expect:
Many good bite sized learnings and short stories. Not short on learnings, but a tad short on the real difficulty level..

BR 17: Simplify your life – Elaine St James


Category: 4 – SOMEDAY it (All Categories are 1 – Read ASAP!, 2 – BUY it!, 3 – SHELF it, 4 – SOMEDAY it)

Comments: The issues I had with the book –

1) The narrator sounded very ‘low’ and monotonous
2) I had read this one after reading ‘How to stop clutter from stealing your life’ which was simply fantastic! (review coming soon..)
3) This was more applicable to folks who had been leading more ‘complicated’ lives thanks to big houses, too much ‘stuff’ etc..
