Easy Read Motivational Interesting Personal Narrative

Very easy to read and fast. Informative, yet entertaining.

Not Up to the Hype, July 9, 2009
By Michael Gooch "Author of Wingtips with Spurs:... (Texas, USA) - See all my reviews

This is not a review but rather an opinion.

For me, this book contained a plethora of celebrity blurbs, forward, etc. and then didn't deliver near to the expected level. While it shows the author is well connected in high circles this does not always translate to a great book. In fact, some of the celebrities are mentioned in the book thereby paving the way for the blurb. In my mind, that is a little like cheating.

At times, I felt I was reading an ode to the author that he had penned himself. When you publicly champion certain virtues and attributes, this gives me the impression that you possess each one. While we know that no one can possibly reach this goal, it therefore becomes an exercise in vainglory. I also found the book too preachy for my liking. It is not a news flash that we should conduct ourselves and our business dealing in a moral fashion. A more helpful book would have been Huntsman's views on what to do with the immoral once they are weighed and measured. There was too little corrective action steps and too much preaching to the choir.

For a book that utilizes a large font and is approximately 6" X 5" it is a very quick read. Indeed, several pages are taken up with a single quote.

While there is nothing new in this book, I can give it three stars for its value in serving as a reminder to all. While my opinion may sound rather negative, it really isn't. I just feel like people should know what is behind the hype.

A five star book of this ilk is Further Up the Organization: How Groups of People Working Together for a Common Purpose Ought to Conduct Themselves for Fun and Profit by Robert Townsend.

I hope you find this review helpful.
