I have been an avid reader of David Meerman Scott’s blog for some time. I even have an Outlook task set so that I can remember to have my once a week look. As such, you won’t be that surprised that I would be a fan of his latest book, World Wide Rave: Creating Triggers that Get Millions of People to Spread Your Ideas and Share Your Stories. For all of us who look to promote ourselves on the web better, and that should be everyone who isn’t driving an ice cream truck – and some of these guys could use an idea or two – this book is an excellent starting place. Get your education here!

I felt that David Hillstrom’s The Bridge read like an inverted pyramid. It starts out easy to follow and agree with then once it hits his valley it becomes a much steeper uphill climb, or at least it did for me.

I was at first fooled by the title of this book. I thought that Dr. Alexa Fleckenstein would be touting the drinking of water, its consumption, as a therapy, much the same as the well known Iranian doctor, Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj. But any mistake on this was purely my own! While Dr. Batmanghelidj recommends drinking lots of water, Dr. Fleckenstein recommends bathing in it!
Authors: Pam Lontos & Andrea Brunais

These two authors prove that they are very well versed industry professionals who take us by the hands and show us how to get in print.
Author: Paul Damien
I found myself at a quandary when reading Paul Damien’s Help!: Debunking the Outrageous Claims of Self-help Gurus. First of all, I wanted to be totally open to what Paul Damien had to say. I have read numerous books on The Secret and the Law of Attraction in the past few years and let me say beforehand that I have read books from the “gurus” and from those who took looks into the industry, movement, or whatever other label might fit it. And I must say that although Paul Damien’s book might not have been the first to lambaste these gurus, it was the first book that I had the opportunity to read through and through.
Author: R. Albert Mohler Jr.
Contrary to what one might think from reading the cover of the book, it would be wrong to say that R. Albert Mohler Jr.’s book, Desire and Deceit: The Real Cost of the New Sexual Tolerance, is a “right jab” from the evangelical side of the political spectrum. It would also be wrong to categorize Mohler as preaching to the choir, which he actually is but that isn’t the whole story either. Albert Mohler’s book is much more of an exercise in educating the religious right so that they will have their own ammunition to fight moral sexual degradation. It is an educational lecture and a pep talk, if you will.

Author: Karl Trautwein
There will be readers who see that the author has juxtaposed contrary verses from the Christian New Testament and this will take a bit away from Trautwein’s argument. But actually I don’t believe that the Christian verses are meant to do anything but to underline the starkness of the Quranic verses. The Islamic writings are clear enough on the subject. Do we accept the truth or do we hide our heads in the sand like an ostrich? This is the question Karl Trautwein forces you to confront.

This book is a little treasure for anyone who is interested in using LinkedIn but it is also a bonus for those of us already familiar with LinkedIn but could always go a bit further.

Do you operate on a budget? And if so do you keep within the budget? Do you find yourself scrambling to figure out where your salary has gone after only a short week or two into the month? Maybe this book is for you…

Author: Alessandra Gelmi
Alessandra Gelmi’s Who’s Afraid of Red is a good read but it is definitely a difficult book to pigeonhole. The main reason is because its three sections are almost different genres.

Author: John Ryder
I came to this book with the question in mind “Can anyone be happy all of the time?” Of course not, but Dr. John Ryder’s book Positive Directions: Shifting Polarities to Escape Stress and Increase Happiness aims to show us how we can have more control over how we see the world, related to other people and manage our stress in our daily lives.
Author: Alex S. Key
I had an affinity with this book. Alex Key has done his homework. His book, The Third Basic Instinct: How Religion Doesn’t Get You has a very powerful message delivered in a very straightforward way, citing examples from history, philosophy, popular culture and direct sources from the Bible, Quran, etc. I found the book fascinating in that the author tackled religious farce on so many different levels but always starting from a basic point: Our third basic instinct.
Author: Ann Larabee
Before getting into the review of this book I would like to say that is was one of the best historical non-fiction books that I have read in years. The story is about a Canadian civil war blockade runner and con man, Alexander “Sandy” Keith, and the evil that his sociopathic, self serving ways brought to this world. In one of those events that “rocked the world” then settled into the annals of history, the

I learned a new word! Distractionistis…
(Or is it a new disease?)
In Work Less, Do More: The 14-Day Productivity Makeover, Dr. Jan Yager has put together a program that, if strictly followed, will allow the reader to get into the groove of getting out of having a cluttered life. When I first got hold of Jan Yager’s book the thought that was on my mind was “Now this is something that I will be able to use for my work – it is something that I badly need…” After reading the book though it is clear to see that stretching your time and not getting things done is holistic. You cannot simply work on this at the office and expect to have more time. Habits have to be developed, goals have to be set, plans have to be made and prioritization (sometimes radical prioritization) has to take place.

Michelle Dunn is a real pro when it comes to collections. How do I know? Because I could see her bio on the book? No. Because Michelle has put together a very solid work on how to start and run your own money collection agency.
Author: Bob Regnerus
As a relative beginner in e-commerce I was pleasantly surprised at how easy of a read Bob Regnerus’s book Big Ticket eCommerce: How to Sell High-Priced Products and Services Using the Internet was. The author’s overall take on things was pretty well scientific through processes that he and his team uncovered and discovered through years of trial and error. Bob shows us that there is much more to the game than search engine optimization and “getting hits”. You have to get leads and keep on them.
