I'm not really a baseball fan, but I love the concept of hitting curveballs in business (and life).
You can be smart, knowledgeable, and experienced and still be shocked by a curveball. How we handle curveballs in business and life says a lot about character, creativity, and passion.
Singer gives insightful advice and stories that both small business owners and big business executives can learn from about how to step up to the plate, stop worrying about how you got there, and start thinking about what you are going to do. Because, as Singer points out, "in the end, that's really all you can control."
With a Table of Contents that leans heavily on baseball metaphors (think innings, not chapters), sports fans will be singing, "Take me out the ballgame." Even if you're not a big baseball fan, you will enjoy as you read:
Spring Training: The Secret to Making the Majors
The First Inning: Step Up to the Plate
The Second Inning: Be the Batter, Not the Ball
The Third Inning: Keep Your Eye on the Ball
The Fourth Inning: Listen to Your Coach
The Fifth Inning: Step Outside the Batter's Box
The Sixth Inning: Wait for Your Pitch
The Seventh Inning: Become a Home Run Hitter
The Eighth Inning: Fill Out Your Lineup
The Ninth Inning: Outside the Ballpark
An Extra Inning: Yet Another Curveball
And here's my confession: I have insider information. I know Scott personally and have watched him advise others on how to deal with curveballs, as well as hit his own curveballs out of the park. And he does it with insight, grace, and style to emulate.
