Nonfiction / Business Management
Legalities first: I was given an electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Yes, I started this book on my eReader, and soon realized I needed to buy a hard copy, as I kept wanting to mark passages, make margin notes, and go back to reread something. Great decision on my part!
It's been several years since I retired, and I read this book more in the light of could it be adapted by Mrs. Housewife and the running of her household, and or used by an author in the running of her business of writing. The answer is a resounding Yes.
This book is not only well written, it's interesting. It's informative. It may not teach you anything you haven't already learned from business school, or just working, but I sincerely think it will give you a slightly different perspective to view your business, and that will make all the difference in the world. I have recommended this book to several of my friends – one is on the board of his church, another is about to start her own editing business, others work for local industry and it will do nothing but help them.
We do tend to think ourselves into our comfort zones, and that may not be the most advantageous place to be, especially when we are trying to make a go of our chosen profession. Mr. Lorch shows us how to change, and why we should. He shows us why we need to think outside the box, and shows us how to do so.
This is a book that managers everywhere—and those who desire to become managers—will find invaluable to read and use. I highly recommend this book.
