    First of all, I think of myself as a leader. My mother is a life

    First of all, I think of myself as a leader. My mother is a life coach who taught me many different ways to be my own individual. This book takes what I’ve learned and condensed it into an entertaining read. Talia – the author – writes from her heart… nothing is left out. I’ve asked my mother and her co-workers to hand out and recommend this book to people who would like to learn and understand what it takes to make a difference. My mom is currently reading it and, at the moment, in love with the stories.

    When you get done reading, you’ll learn more about yourself and how you can become a better, stronger person while still being you. Even though I’m a proud leader, I’ve still taken tips and tricks away from the text. The book was easy to read, filled with different aspects of how to be a leader and how to improve yourself. The author is in no way condescending and infuses the book with humor. The reader may feel as if Leman is teaching him/her or telling him/her special secrets. By the end of the book, I’m sure my mother will recommend The Random Book About the Power of ANYone to her clients. Great job Talia! You’ve definitely made a difference in people’s lives and not everyone can say that. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to learn about self-improvement and leadership skills.
