Joe Calloway encourages you to pull out all stops and become the best at what you do, a real show-off. Most of his material, which is drawn from his inspirational lectures, is amped-up common sense: Don't promise more than you can deliver; figure out how to do what you already do better. He provides useful, though time-worn, advice. Calloway finds inspiration in the most unlikely places, such as watching a diligent barista at a mall coffee shop, and presents readers with brief, easy lessons. Each item gives you a little something to chew on and urges you toward a better self. getAbstract recommends this book for a quick shot of positive thinking, small but mighty in its inspirational punch.
