About the Author

Alan Fox has lived a long, successful, and joyful life. He has advanced degrees in accounting, law, education, and professional writing. He has expanded his commercial real estate company, ACF Property Management, Inc into a billion dollar enterprise since founding it in 1968. He founded Rattle Poetry Journal (in 1994), a nationally renowned publication. In 1999, he started The Frieda C. Fox Family Foundation, a non-profit that provides funding to youth education projects. And in the midst of all this, he has raised a large and loving family.

How did he do all this? Alan attributes his happiness and success to consistently applying his People Tools, the simple, practical life lessons that he’s accumulated—and practiced—over the years. Now at the ripe-old age of 74, Alan is dedicated to sharing his wisdom with as many people as possible through his writings, public talks, and media appearances.

I received a free copy of this book from 12 Books Group in exchange for this review. People Tools for Business is Alan Fox's follow up to People Tools. In this book, he explores 50 different tools to help people in business and in life. He spent many years in the practice of law, and now is CEO of a company that manages more than $1.5 billion of commercial real estate. He's not as famous as Donald Trump, and he doesn't have his own TV show, but from reading the book, he's been quite successful. The book is divided into 50 chapters, each only a few pages long. This makes easy to read and digest each one. Some of the chapter titles are Applause, Leave Grumpy at Home, Toot, Don't Put Your Car Keys in the Trunk, and Ask for a Pineapple Fluff. The overriding theme of all of the chapters is that you only have one life, so live it to the fullest. Don't be afraid to take chances to get ahead. If it doesn't work, see what you can learn and try again. The author uses many examples from his own experience. He talks about his successes, but more importantly, he talks about his failures, and his mistakes. There are times when even he fails to follow his own advice. This is actually refreshing. Too many books like this present the author as perfect, that they're ready for their wings and halo, or are handing down their wisdom from the top of Mt Olympus. If he's willing to admit he's not perfect, then I know I can follow at least some of these all the time. (By the way, when I saw the title Leave Grumpy at Home, my first response was, "Then who do I take? Happy? Sleepy? Doc? Dopey?" Lol) All in all, a good book.
