Solo Entrepreneur Book Reviews
Find Your Great Work is a unique book, designed to help us let go of our usual busywork and point us to more creative, motivated, and inspired work. It delves deep into the self-filtering and personal paradigms we are usually unaware of having. Brilliant in its simplicity, using just twelve key mapping tools, this book helps identify those underlying factors that unconsciously drive the choices and actions we take, and shift our thinking to a place where great work is truly possible.
~~~NEW: This book is now available FREE as an ebook!~~~ Occasionally a book comes along that you just know you are going to keep, and read over and over again. The story told in the Jackrabbit Factor is almost hypnotic--the tale leads you to a much deeper understanding of a topic (variously called the Law of Attraction, among other monikers) that has been read about and taught many times, but never in such a mesmerizing style.

Buzzmarketing is an entertaining and informative book. It teaches its readers and marketers how to make themselves known without using the pushy conventional techniques.
Although this book claims to teach readers about money, I feel that this book inspires me more than it teaches me about money. Robert Kiyosaki emphasizes on the importance of getting out of the rat race. I am totally convinced by him that workers are being exploited by employers and governments.

If you like to write, more than likely you can name a "guru" who has influenced you demonstrably. Mitchell Ivers has done so for me through his "Guide to Good Writing" book, an enjoyable and easy to read literary work of art.
When being interviewed by media, it is tempting to do a `brain dump,' and give them as much information as you can. This can backfire, though.

In 'Media Training 101,' Sally Stewart recommends that you have five focused and concise Key Message Points.
Doug Stevenson knows how to make a story come to life, and in 'Never Be Boring Again,' he shows you how you can do it, too. He makes the process (almost!) painless, even if you are not a natural story teller.

It is rare to find a brand new blueprint for making cash on the internet. The continuous churning of rehashed and ripped off regurgitated pablum has plagued the internet guru market for the last few years. But ever so often with some persistent digging you find a gem. Google Cash is that shining diamond on the coal-heap of get-rich-on-the-internet promotion.

Whether you love marketing or hate marketing, you have to agree that it's a part of our culture. The stories, while often quite compelling, are all lies: Stories that start as partial-truths, and that we believe, and spread, to make them lies we tell ourselves. Godin's book tells us all about this story and much more. Read on for the key points I gleaned from this excellent book...
Every once in a while, a book allows individuals to open a door thus creating unique opportunities to "see with new eyes." "Jack: Straight from the Gut" is such a book.
What you think has a profound effect on what you do and how you do it! Your life experiences determine the way you think. But your thoughts aren't set in stone. Just like you can learn to ride a bike or play chess, you can also learn to control your thinking, and in turn, control your life. Henry Ford may have said it best decades ago when he told his staff: "Whether you think you can or think you can't ... you're absolutely right!"

In this third edition of The Leadership Challenge, more than 50% of the content is new material added to a resoundingly inspiring message. This new edition has been substantially updated to reflect the challenges of shrinking work forces, rising cynicism and expanded telecommunications. It's being heralded as a "personal coach in a book." Drawing on interviews and a questionnaire survey of more than 3000 leaders, in addition to an expanded research base of 60,000 leaders, the authors capture the continuing interest in leadership as a critical aspect of human organizations.

"Who moved my Cheese?" is written by Dr. Spencer Johnson. Quoting from the book's site, "www.whomovedmycheese.com" (what else could it be called!), Dr. Johnson "earned a B.A. degree in Psychology from the University of Southern California, an M.D. degree from the Royal College of Surgeons, and medical clerkships at The Mayo Clinic and Harvard Medical School". So to answer the pompous question normally put by a cynic, "Is the guy qualified to write a self help book that will help ME (who says I need help anyway)?" - yes he is. If you have any doubts about Dr. Johnson or the book itself (how many copies it has sold, blah blah blah) - check out the site.

Gordon McKenzie, who worked at Hallmark Cards for thirty years (to the day), wrote this little gem in 1998. I first read this book when I was a "corporate fool" yet, even after reading the book, I wasn't able to figure out how to orbit the giant hairball and survive with grace. So, I became a Solo Entrepreneur. Recently I picked the book up again, and on a second reading, was intrigued to find that Mr. McKenzie's ideas are as applicable to Solo Entrepreneurs as they are to "corporate fools." From my perspective, the biggest difference is the size and the gravitational pull of the hairballs that we are trying to orbit.
