Our society is used to labeling those who are deviant as a fag, slut, or freak.
But who is to say what’s “normal”?

Jeetendr Sehdev in his book, The Kim Kardashian Principle

The Kim Kardashian Principle

Jeetendr Sehdev has a writing style that is not something you can call “normal,” and that’s what makes reading his book so much fun. More than fun, Jeetendr makes you introspect and explore why we are all stuck in a world where we follow norms that we don’t understand and don’t want to understand.

Business thrives on interaction, whether we’re at meetings, making presentations, coaching, or simply chatting with colleagues. Our work is increasingly team-based, a point underlined by a recent Harvard study which found collaborative activities making up more than 50% of work in business environments. There’s good reason for this, since teams and groups achieve better results than the lone genius (see James Surowiecki: The Wisdom of Crowds). Outside the world of work, team-focused learning is increasingly taking hold as the organizational model for universities, requiring students to better understand their own behaviors as well as those of their peers.

I can honestly say that when I started storytelling—speaking openly about my experiences—my life changed for the better. I started having sincere relationships with people right away, instead of hiding behind behind bravado or small talk.

Margot Leitman in her book, Long Story Short: The Only Storytelling Guide You’ll Ever Need

Long Story Short: The Only Storytelling Guide You'll Ever Need

Margot’s book is a must-read for anyone who needs to use storytelling, and that includes speakers, presenters, and communicators.

Margot uses examples from her own life to illustrate her techniques. She even explains her mistakes and how they helped her improve. Shen then helps others overcome those same mistakes.

This is one of the best books on storytelling I have found, and it almost reads like a storybook too!

The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs

This was among the first books where I had to use my highlighter all the time to find amazing quotes. When the topic of your book revolves around Steve Jobs, it is imperative that you will end up with some amazing quotes!

More than a quote, Carmine provides a candid response to those who defend bulleted lists on slides.

I interviewed Carmine when this book was released–read the interview here: An Interview with Carmine Gallo

Sorry, your royal highness, nobody believes or buys perfect today. Lesson learned? Show your flaws.

Jeetendr Sehdev in his book, The Kim Kardashian Principle

The Kim Kardashian Principle

Jeetendr Sehdev wrote this “shameless” book to tell us why “shameless” sells, and he does an amazing job. You don’t feel bored or distracted for a moment, and he really knows what he is asking his readers to do, and that’s very forthcoming and refreshing.

I’ve found many amazing quotes in this book and will add more of them in the coming weeks.

Self-improvement and success often occur together. But that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re the same thing.

Mark Manson in his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Everything in the book uses the same direct, conversational style that Mark uses for the book title, and that’s good because it’s all useful information, put across in as few words as possible.

Mark doesn’t mince words when he provides advice, but he does use examples, analogies, and stories–and there he uses more words to convince you further.

If I’d waited to know who I was or What I was about before I started “being creative,” well, I’d be sitting around trying to figure myself out instead of making things.

We can use the simplicity and immediacy of pictures to discover and clarify our own ideas, and use those same pictures to clarify our ideas for other people, helping them discover something new for themselves along the way.
