I just finished my third book for the year.
3) Ziglar on Selling: The ultimate handbook for the complete -sales- professional. - 3/23/2017
I read somewhere that we are all in sales. Consequently, I picked this book to educate myself on the process. It has a must have book if you are into selling of any kind. It breaks selling down into components, and shows you how to tackle each component. For most of my readers - in the medical field- this would not interest you, I know. lol. Still, if you want to read a book on selling, I would recommend this book.
2) Stand Up Comedy The book, by Judy Carter:
I picked this book to help me with my speeches. It is a book highly recommended by Darren lacroix, a World Champion of Public speaking, which is the same competition I aim to win. My speeches till now have been more on a somber kind, more serious. I wanted to learn the art of creating jokes to insert in my speeches so that it fits right in. Overall, my impression of the book is that it is helpful. I'm going to put a lot of the things mentioned into action.
The book specifically deals with how to create a stand up comedy routine that you can use to become a professional comedian, if thats what you desire, or if you want to be an amateur. It has specific tips that you can follow to become better, and these are given in the Workshop sections.
If you want to improve your jokes, or your comedy routine check it out.
1) Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, by Arnold Schwarzenegger
-- An autobiography detailing his life. "Unbelievably" is absolutely spot on. He has done so much, and on top of that has done it by design, most of the time coming from the position of the underdog, from the position of "hey you, you definitely wont succeed." I highly recommend this book, if you want to be inspired, or simply want to know more about arnold -there is a lot to know. Just one thing... Its long... Very long... about 700 pages or so. But if you are a man of vision, a man that likes to strike out a path on untrodden land do not hesitate to get this book.
