  • No Excuses!: The Power of Self-Discipline for Success in Your Life

    Most people think success comes from good luck or enormous talent, but many successful people achieve their accomplishments in a simpler way: through self-discipline. Brian Tracy knows this firsthand. He didn’t graduate from high school, and after working for a few years as a laborer, he realized he had limited skills and a limited future. But through the power of self-discipline, he changed his life.

    I picture people nodding off and drooling onto their desks listening to this. If someone were reading this with authority and enthusiasm, it would be brilliant.

    You *don't* have to go to the company website to download anything.The PDF is next to the place you click to download. I had a hard time seeing it at first. Many of the words you can understand if you speak English and even more if you also speak Spanish, even without the guide, but I sure was happy to find the guide, as other reviewers certainly didn't. For a free thing, I think it's good, BUT if they made people work less hard to enjoy the product, I believe it would result in more orders and fewer hard feelings. Great vocab if you speak no French!

  • Extraordinary Leadership

    In a constantly changing, hyper-competitive world, leadership is more important than ever. Yet few people have what it takes to inspire, develop, and guide others. In this presentation, Robin Sharma shares the leadership lessons that he gives to clients such as Nike, Microsoft, and NASA.

    Story

    I am very happy that this author (Sharma) has passion, but I must warn readers that this book is not inspiring, contains just wrong information and ideas, and doesn't give me any sense that I will learn about the challenge and joy of leadership 10 minutes in. I scanned the rest. One of his ideas is that children all bond and get along when no one is watching them, and that adults don't bond in isolated situations such as being trapped in an elevator...? You get business people in there and we'll figure out a way to make our Southwest flights on time, we're going to cooperate and bond so fast! Poorly engineered on a non-pro set up.

    With the same directness that defined his career in public service, Donald Rumsfeld's memoir is filled with previously undisclosed details and insights about the Bush administration, 9/11, and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It also features Rumsfeld's unique and often surprising observations on eight decades of history.

    Story

    I adore the controversial, feather ruffling, serious efficiency of Don Rumsfeld. He wants what's best for the country - and what WORKS for the modern military. Not the turf-protecting, status-quo maintaining, profligate ($225 million annually to monitor Soviet submarines in Iceland... long after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Took 3 years to authorize the elimiation of the waste!) The obfuscation caused by pointless beauracracy torpidly plodding along in a swiftly shifting contemporary battlefield, he reveals and lays out the hassle of dealing with entrenched D.C, ass-covering self interest. All in addition to inside scuttlebutt on 9/11 and his actions during the attack on the Pentagon. A special pleasure hearing it in his voice.
