I thought this book was absolutely excellent, and in so many ways extremely helpful and useful for work and life. The reason why i cant give it 5 stars is because some of the times the author used words that I thought was inappropriate for a book and a man at his caliber. But all in all a wonderful book that I can strongly recommend, and I am going to share this with my friends and work colleagues. He has a proven track record of negotiating and communicating, and I liked the very practical when he communicated his message. There are not many books like his, and that is why I think we all should read his book because it is going to help us to improve in so many areas of our life.
Super book that I know you will enjoy

Enjoy

When she was suddenly given the opportunity of a new life in rural Jutland, journalist and archetypal Londoner Helen Russell discovered a startling statistic: the happiest place on earth isn't Disneyland but Denmark, a land often thought of by foreigners as consisting entirely of long, dark winters, cured herring, Lego and pastries. What is the secret to their success? Are happy Danes born or made?

I simply love everything about this book. The book was so well written, and I loved the narrator so much. The author brought many truth to the table and I loved her perspectives and thoughts on Denmark and life in Jutland. The book is hilariously written and I almost laughed through most of the book. If you are interested in how life is outside Copenhagen then this book is for you. Even as a dane myself will you surely find this book entertaining and valuable.
I give this book my strong recommendation ❤️🇩🇰

The world is changing. Markets have crashed. Jobs have disappeared. Industries have been disrupted and are being remade before our eyes. Everything we aspired to for "security," everything we thought was "safe," no longer is. But more and more opportunities are rising out of the ashes of the broken system to generate real success. Choose Yourself illuminates your personal path to building a bright, new world out of the wreckage of the old.

My review of “Choose Yourself”
The idea of the book is fine, and I totally get what he is trying to do. At the same time did I finish the book feeling like he could have done much better just focusing on fewer “ideas” and in that way the book would have been less distracting. It feels like he wanted to share to much in his book and missed some direction. Some truth of the book was enjoyable and I like the part on how to make your life less complicated and more effective. Another thing that he should have stayed away from, is the swearing, because that is not at all professional what so ever. He talks into the book like he is talking, and that might be a turnoff for some people. He has some good thoughts still and i was challenged. But not a book that I was to recommend.

Jonathan Edwards is one of the most extraordinary figures in American history. Arguably the most brilliant theologian ever born on American soil, Edwards (1703 - 1758) was also a pastor, a renowned preacher, a missionary to the Native Americans, a biographer, a college president, a philosopher, a loving husband, and the father of 11 children.

Even people who are not professing Christians think they are familiar with the story of the Nativity. Every Christmas, displays of Jesus resting in a manger populate lawns and churchyards, and songs about shepherds and angels fill the air. Yet despite the abundance of these Christian references in popular culture, how many of us have examined the hard edges of this biblical story? Timothy Keller takes listeners on an illuminating journey into the surprising background of the Nativity.

Shame can take on many forms. It hides in the shadows of the most successful, confident and high-achieving woman who struggles with balancing her work and children, as well as in the heart of the broken, abused and downtrodden woman who has been told that she will never amount to anything. Shame hides in plain sight and can hold us back in ways we do not realize. But Christine Caine wants listeners to know something: We can all be free.

Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity, complete with friendships, investigations, and supernatural dreams along the way. Providing an intimate window into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi's inner turmoil will challenge Christians and Muslims alike.

Speakers often use the words vision, boldness, and influence to describe the characteristics of effective leaders. In The Most Excellent Way to Lead, Perry Noble makes the case that the heart of great leadership lies elsewhere. Perry, despite being voted least likely to succeed in high school, beat the odds against him. Today, he inspires 3,500 people every weekend to live for something greater than themselves. He credits this achievement to the leadership principles he has learned from the Bible.
