Legacy of Honor: The Values and Influence of America's Eagle Scouts
St. Martin's Griffin
There are no words...
I really don't have words I can type here in this space to adequately describe what I think about this book. It was good, yes, but that's a major understatement. It was going to be good for me no matter what because I'm an Eagle Scout, as is the author. But, even I did not know what I was getting myself into. This book is for Scoutmasters and other Adult leaders and fathers, who want to become ...
The 2,000 Percent Solution: Free Your Organization from "Stalled" Thinking to Achieve Exponential Success
My 2000 Percent Solution - A Whole New Life
I first read "The 2000 Percent Solution" as part of a course for a Rushmore University doctoral program. It sparked in me the desire and determination to get more "bang for the buck" from my efforts, and provided a clear 8-step guide for doing so. The guide to creating 2000 Percent solutions essentially helps you to see differently, and acknowledge the reality of your personal and ...
The Seven-day Weekend: A Better Way to Work in the 21st Century
Business, the way it should be?
I really enjoyed this book because it seems to be the antithesis of so many standard biz books out there. No ex-consultant in-depth research of "best of breed" or new "growth paradigm" dreamed up by a college professor - just musings from a man who has created just what might be the best case scenario for the future of work. The book is based upon is Semco, a diversified Brazilian company ...
Getting Organized: Improving Focus, Organization and Productivity
Dawson Publishing, 2010
A great read!
Of the 3 dozen books I've read related to organizing, this is one of my favorites. It is presented in an easy-to-read format that makes it possible to spend a few minutes and read a chapter at a time. There were many great quotes and ideas that are easy to implement. The book also included fun anecdotes. Very well done!
Surrounded by Geniuses: Unlocking the Brilliance in Yourself, Your Colleagues and Your Organization
Book is as great as his in-person seminars!

His advice is relevant on a personal level, as well as any profession you're in and whether corporate or social sector. I bought 2 copies of this book (one for a friend who couldn't attend) - and immediately started reading it ...
A. Roger Merrill
Read it and gift it to all your friends!!!
I have been a fan of the Merills, since their synergistic work with Stephen Covey with "First Things First". I am not married yet, nor do I have a job, but I find this book so practical and I am convinced as I grow up into the various future stages of my life, the wisdom within it, will become more and more obvious. I really like the idea that balance is not in "balancing the scale" but in ...

Never Be Late Again: 7 Cures for the Punctually Challenged
Post Madison Pub
A helpful book for those who have to do 'just one more thing'...
I read this through once several months ago and need to read it again. I tend to often fall prey to 'magical thinking' - you know, I only have 5 minutes before I have to go to work, but I can probably wash these dishes, or pick that up, or why are these shoes by the door, pet the dog, holy cow! Where did the time go? Ever have that happen? :) The author is very entertaining and offers ...
Cheaper Than Therapy: How to Keep Life's Small Problems from Becoming Big Ones
Coping with Clutter
This charmingly simple book spoke volumes to me about the dangers of a disorganized life, and brought to mind several practical applications. If I don't hang up my clothes every night, my bedroom is soon an unworkable mess. If I don't take care of my mail (and other paperwork) diligently and often, it soon becomes overwhelming, and I can't find that piece of paper I really need. If I don't ...

What Erik Wesner has done is to take business principles from the Amish, break them down, and convey to the reader the best way to apply them. Erik has compiled many invaluable lessons into one readable, thoroughly enjoyable book. Well worth ...

I don't know of any other books except Michael ...
this book and method helped me connect to the personal god within
When I came across this book and meditation method, I had been a 'spiritual seeker' for many years and I had practiced meditation and had increased my understanding of spirituality and my mind and life had gained a peace and stillness. However, I had never been able to really experience a connection with the divine in the way that I wanted - personal, clear guidance and feeling the presence of ...

Like his prior book "Growing The Distance", Jim Clemmer's "Leader's Digest" is a sampler of high impact ideas.

Jim Clemmer sells the rich, savory steak surrounded by the sizzle. Some of Clemmer's ideas are classic ...
