Atlas Shrugged: 10/10 – Perfection from start to finish. It answered all of the questions that The Fountainhead left you with.
The Fountainhead: 9/10 -Rand was still perfecting her writing techniques and refining her philosophy.
The Likeability Factor: 6/10 – Was really good for the first 80 pages. Then you realize how repetitive everything is.
Wisdom for a Young CEO: 3/10 – Lots of great insight, but you can find that information anywhere.
The Little Red Book of Selling: 6/10 – Very practical and to the point, but I believe sales is something that you are born with. Either you can or you can’t sell something; you can’t learn the “art” of selling if you aren’t born a salesman.
How to Win Friends & Influence People: 9/10 – Everyone needs to read this book. Seriously. Especially all of those Emo/Goth kids
And how ironic is this — I started reading David Allen’s “Getting Things Done” and I stopped 1/3 of the way through because I became so engulfed with reading The Fountainhead… Hahaha!
SO! In my bookshelf right now is a queue of about 6 books that I am reading next. Let me just list them, let me know if you’ve read them and what you think.
- Good to Great
- Built To Last
- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
- The Tipping Point
- We The Living (Rand)
- Anthem (Rand)
Hopefully I can get through most of these by December…
MRS. OATES — YOU WERE SO RIGHT ABOUT READING!!!
“The world belongs to readers”
Ok it’s 12:30 and I’m going to start reading We The Living tonight.
