    After eight books, many of them best sellers, A Game Plan for Life is the one closest to John Woodens heart: a moving and inspirational guide to the power of mentorship. The first half focuses on the people who helped foster the values that carried Wooden through an incredibly successful and famously principled career, including his college coach, his wife, Abraham Lincoln, and Mother Teresa.

    Story

    seems simple, but in reality few mentor correctly. This book tells stories of mentoring. You can add your own twists. It is not important how you do it, but take the initiative to be a mentor.

    The tsunami of cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge. The Greeks wanted to turn their country into a pinata stuffed with cash and allow as many citizens as possible to take a whack at it. The Germans wanted to be even more German; the Irish wanted to stop being Irish.

    Story

    I always enjoy Michael Lewis. This time was no exception. However, this book is an entertaining story of gross generalizations. The way in which the story is told and read was great fun. Anectdotal storys and, to my experience, the author putting a lot of catchy phrases in people's mouths, makes this story feel more fiction than non-fiction. If you are looking for an in depth study, stay away from this one. If you are looking for some pulp fiction, this is a good one.

  • The Secrets of the Power of Intention

    In this live lecture, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores intention as an all-pervading force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. Intention, he explains, is not something you do, but an energy you're a part of. Not only do you emanate from the field of intention, but if you align yourself to it, your desires become fulfilled and you find yourself at peace.

    Story

    This audio is from a presentaion that Dr. Dyer was making on the power of intention. The presentation is good, and the audio is good. The material is something that, in order for it to work, you really have to buy into. It is good material, but not original material. Many people have talked on this topic before. He even sites examples of other people's work. His strength is that he presents it in a compelling manner. A good listen, and for those that need it, and buy in, it could be life changer.
