So easy listening, so true, so helpfull !

Where does Common Sense Wisdom rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Working as a real estate broker and an investment consluntant in the building industry, I spend a lot of hours driving around Prague. Usually I get quickly bored while listening to many local radio stations and I find myself changing them all the time. A friend of mine said to me one day, hey, why don't you listen to something more usefull like a book? A book? How can you listen to a book? Books are there to be read, right? Right, but there is somebody else reading that for you! What a surprice to me, what a completely new world for me to be discovered! And I was sooo happy to find one of my favourite books by Pepper de Callier on Audible. And - read by Pepper himself. Great!

What about J.M. Pepper de Callier’s performance did you like?

Common Sense Wisdom makes it easy.

A great guide to professional and personal life

Some books are just waste of paper, time and energy. This one, on the contrary, brings deep insight based on rich experience in a very easy-to-digest form and makes you re-think even the topics you thought you have mastered.

Every single sentence in every single chapter has been crafted carefully to bring deep insight in a concise form thus allowing for focus on the ideas and content in one's own context. I enjoyed every minute of the book and though having gone through some experience myself already I found every chapter inspiring and thought provoking though originally I considered myself being "beyond this topic".

The book is very practical and useful for anyone at any stage of his career. I would even argue it is very well applicable also outside the professional life. Many topics apply not only to business but also to personal life. And through its easy-to-use form Pepper makes the book very practical and easy to get back to for inspiration should you get in a situation addressed in the book.

Enjoy!
