Do you have a grip on your business, or does your business have a grip on you? All entrepreneurs and business leaders face similar frustrations: personnel conflict, profit woes, and inadequate growth. Decisions never seem to get made, or once made, fail to be properly implemented. But there is a solution. It’s not complicated or theoretical.

Do you want to learn how to take 30 minutes out of your day to write lists, strategize, brainstorm, discuss, and plan with your child about picking up a fork? This book will teach you how with the most long winded, mind numbing, verbatim conversations between little kids and an adult. Using "case studies" is awesome, but this is not how.
I want to pull my hair out listening to the 80% of white noise in this book so I can hear the 20% of good info.

Every father knows failure. It comes with the territory. One generation to the next, imperfect men chip away at God's original design for daddies, leaving a flawed pattern for their sons to follow. Overwhelmed by their failures, it's easy for fathers to feel they have blown it for good and can't redeem themselves. In this book, Tim Bayly offers a frank and hope-filled path to overcoming the inherent failures of imperfect fathers - and to reclaiming manhood and dignity for the man called Daddy.

Ugh, read by author...
Almost zero practical advice. Sooooo many boring little details about the authors childhood that have nothing to do with anything, just dull filler. This is really boring, awkward, and uninteresting. Also, it's about 90% Biblical theology, not a parenting book.

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

It's basically the musings of a 14 year old. Extrapolate all the things you learned as an adolescent, and you could write this book too. So could your parents. And their parents. This book puts fresh packaging on age old ideas. The few original concepts in this book are baseless, faulty, and unreliable. So if you're 13 you could learn a lot from this book, or just wait a year and it will come to you.

Using kings of the Old Testament as character studies, Steve Farrar examines the critical role a father plays in preparing his son to become a godly man. What separated the good kings from the bad kings was a father who made time commitments to mentor his son, by modeling biblical manhood. Do you want your son to become a man of regal character? Then this book is for you!

Hey Sigmund Freud. Will you PLEASE get to the point. You are not a psychologist, you give obvious and/or terrible advice about human behavior. Like a cross between Dr Phill and an arrogant community College student.

This book is why authors should NEVER read their own book. Ugh. Kill it with fire!

Over two hours into this book and I feel dumber. She has not made a single point that is not basic common sense. But I guess that's how you sell a lot of books.

And OMG the jokes, witt and humor make me want to vomit.
