Self-Management for Actors: Getting Down to (Show) Business
Cricket Feet Publishing, 2008
Not for Stupid Actors
This is an excellent, EXCELLENT book. I came from a school that was big on the technique and the artistry of acting, but was rather short sided on how to actually pay the bills using that art. However, Ms. Gillespie's book came to my attention and at first I thought it would be another one of those "Here's the formula for the business of acting" type books. I have read dozens of those other books ...

Yeah Dave's Guide to Livin' the Moment: Getting to Ecstasy Through Wine, Chocolate and Your iPod Playlist
Hit your refresh button on your spiritual journey.
Reading David's book was such a refreshing change of pace, looking at my overly stocked yoga bookshelf. Sometimes we can take even our spiritual path a little to seriously. I found myself in many similar scenarios as David's in my life, as I'm sure many others will be able to relate too. I found myself thinking "I have to be the female version of this guy." I laughed my way through each ...
The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur

Great Read for Business Owners
This is a great book for a small business CEO, such as myself. It is an easy read and full of ideas that you can use and try on your own. It supports some of the ideas I have developed within iiGrowth and provided some new ones for me. I found it to be informative, and full of excellent ideas by author Mike Michalowicz. Mike also provides entrepreneurs with informative emails as follow on to the ...

Getting the Most from Your Yellow Pages Advertising
AMACOM/American Management Association
Worth its Weight in Yellow Gold!
I would have never thought a book titled GETTING THE MOST FROM YOUR YELLOW PAGE ADVERTISING would make for compelling reading, but I was wrong. Author and former yellow page rep Barry Maher grabbed my interest on the first page and held it firmly to the end. I would consider this book essential for small business owners or anyone who is interesting in producing yellow page copy. Though ...
A New Ladies' Man: Getting the Girl
I began reading this book thinking that it was going to be totally sexist and vulgar. My mind wasn't very open to what I was about to read, but once I started, I found myself laughing and agreeing with a lot of the things that Colin writes. He nails the wants and needs of most women right on the head and even proceeds to explain the ways of women to the average clueless male. The book is a quick ...

The book also included fun anecdotes. Very well done!
Full Frontal PR: Getting People Talking about You, Your Business, or Your Product
Packed with useable tips
I found this book to be packed with practical ideas and information. After reading it I felt that I had a sound basic knowledge of how the news media works, and was confident about how to prepare materials for them to use. Of course every layman thinks they know how the media works, but after reading this you realise how intricate it can be. Strengths of the book: - Covers the whole industry ...
The Spirituality Of Success - Getting Rich With Integrity
Vincent M. Roazzi
Simply the clearest book on the market
For many years I have been studying and practising 'manifestation' and wondering why my results were so limited. I found the answer in this book, along with many other answers. This book differs from other books in the same genre in that it is absolutely clear and solid, marrying spiritual wisdom with practical insight. I can't recommend this book too highly, and will be applying its principles ...

Communicate or Die: Getting Results Through Speaking and Listening
EXCELLENT LEADERSHIP BOOK!!!
This book was very useful for me as I didn't know some details and tips I can use in my day to day life activities for both professional and personal aspects. The way we communicate would be the difference between success or failure as a leader. Misunderstandings, gossips and ignoring issues may cause a lot of difficulties for you as a leader and this book shows us how to deal with them. I ...

Getting to Calm: Cool-Headed Strategies for Parenting Tweens + Teens
Laura S Kastner Ph.D.
My most difficult negotiations are at home...
Ok, the first thing you need to know is that I'm not a psychologist, or teacher or social worker. I'm a 50-something male attorney on my third teen! The next thing you should know is that this isn't a book I would have picked up at the bookstore on my own. However, since my wife "gently" suggested I read it, I gave it a go. The first chapter struck home ("Why are Today's Teens so Rude?") and ...
Just Listen: Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone
Mark Goulston M.D.
A must read for every business person
I read a lot of business books and frankly, many of them are repeating what others have already said. Not this book.

He even has smart things to say about how to turn a potential clients "no" into a "yes." This is the ...
