Real people with real things to say. You'll gain an insight into what everyday people experience as they work and live. Couldn't put it down. Studs is Pulitzer material.

I like this article “People Talk about What They Do All Day and How They Feel about What They Do” in most parts. Specifically - I like () I think the author should really read the latest book “The 5-STAR Business Network” by Vivek Sood in which he discusses this topic in great deal of detail. I read the summary on Goodreads and seems like the author is arguing exactly the same point, but not as coherently.
