Coming Soon: One Minute Book Reviews

[One Minute Book Reviews]

One Minute Book Reviews

Although it can be a struggle at first, reading books is something I enjoy. Once I’ve started I have to finish! They are like a magnet, drawing me in.

Personally, I find the physical book much more accessible & attractive (& less wearing on the eyes): there is something about holding a printed book in your hands & reading it. My brain seems to respond much more favourably & also becomes much less tired when reading. A book also doesn’t disappear when our electronic device decides to crash 🙂

I guess it’s down to personal preference.

Books are a great way to learn from others who have ‘Been there & done that!‘ without having to go through so much pain ourselves. Through them, we can learn from some of the best mentors & people who have really made an impact.

Perhaps having an analytical mind & an eye for detail, combined with an ability to summarise helps me to glean nuggets from the books I read.

So, I thought I would periodically post what I am going to call my One Minute Book Reviews: brief, easy-to-read summaries that take only a minute or less to read which contain what I think are the best take-away lessons from the books I am enjoying. Then, if you’re interested in reading more for yourself, I will also include a link to Amazon so that you can go further on your own.

I tend to read quite widely so these short reviews will cover a range of different areas & topics, such as biographies & autobiographies, business books, how-to books & more.  Some may have been written quite recently; some will be classics that have stood the test of time & analysis.

If you’ve already read a book that I review, why not add your own comments on the page?

Through these I hope you will enjoy reading as much as I do & get a huge bonus for your day-to-day life. Reading is one of the most stimulating activities for developing our brain & keeping us mentally alert. Many printed books are also available electronically so you can download them onto your phone or tablet.

And you never know, some of the information we learn may also help us to rewire our thinking, enabling us to change habits & live more fulfilled lives. Just a thought.

Many thanks & I hope you enjoy my meanderings.

Take care until next time …

About waywood

Hi & Welcome to my thoughts. I share subjects that are important to me. As you’ll notice, these subjects can be quite broad & varied. I like variety; I like breadth & I like a challenge. I am passionate about helping others overcome their fears, grow in confidence & succeed. Although many people would label me as an achiever, I have battled low confidence, low self-esteem & a couple of nasty, long periods depression over the years. I can’t say, “I know how you feel” but I can hopefully empathise & offer some of the things that are helping me to turn my life around. Please feel free to comment, share & enjoy. Take care, best wishes & keep well Stuart
