Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
I don't work in the corporate world, but have. I try to be fair in my dealings with minorities and women. I grew up with 8 sisters and believe in their abilities and strengths however I have made mistakes. This book opened my eyes, gave me some strategies to think about and hopefully I can start to make a difference with making the world a little bit fairer and opening up business to the benefits of women, minorities and being a true leader.
Make the system, work the system, grow the system and to do this you have to fall in love with your business. Always tweeting it, letting it go, changing it and playing with it. Don't get caught working it whatever you do for you are creating a business, not a job. Worth listening to but there is no magic formula, 'silver bullet' fix or insight that will give you a 'ah arrr' moment. If you are running or thinking of running a small business, one day to be a large business perhaps, then listen to this book and take note of the 'pearls-of-wisdom' but it comes down to you with your focus.
