As I am often asked to recommend books on particular topics,
I thought it might be useful to summarise some of my favourites.
I have a personal preference for listening to audio versions, rather
than reading, as they utilise dead time while driving.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Stephen
Audio/book. Superb – the section on communicating/listening
is probably the best “training” audio I have heard.
Brilliant for both work and family life.
Maverick – Ricardo Semler
Book. Excellent, easy reading (like a novel). Inspiring stuff
if you want radical change in your company.
The Psychology of Achievement – Brian Tracy
Audio. Don’t be put off by the title. He talks about programming
for success, goals and improving human relationships. Excellent.
The World’s Greatest Salesman – Og Mandino
Audio/book. Not what you might expect. A wonderfully narrated
story (with a religious bent) about a young shepherd boy who receives
10 scrolls of wisdom. Focuses on forming good habits. Not just
about selling, but about living positively.
Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill
Audio/book. As much about enriching your life as your wallet.
A bit American and in a few parts a little dated, but very interesting
Mindstore – Jack Black
Audio. One of the few “published” UK (Scottish) motivational
speakers. Describes itself as the “ultimate mental fitness
programme”. Very interesting and different, could be hugely
powerful if used regularly.
Live Life with Passion – Anthony Robbins
Audio. Title covers it all. How to turn your dreams into reality.
Customers for Life – Carl Sewell
Book. The “ten commandments of excellent customer service”.
Easy read and very good for anyone involved in sales.
Get Clients Now – C.J. Hayden
Book. A 28-day marketing programme for professionals and service
providers. An excellent, easy to read, practical workbook.
Fully Alive, Fully Human – Ed Foreman
Audio. Ten “power habits for making your life a masterpiece”.
Business, personal and health issues. Easy listening and humorous.
Most of the above can be found either at Amazon or Nightingale
