This is a great week for business readers. Two incredible books were just published and I'm breathless in my praise for them.
Who's Got Your Back by Keith Ferrazzi: His first book, Never Eat Alone, was the BEST book you could read on networking for success. The new book (Who's Got Your Back) goes a step beyond and outlines how you can build a dream team based on high level relationship management skills. Keith's point is clear: You can't do it on your own — you need to a dream team if you want to be a breakout success. As usual, he deliver dozens of takeaway points that will change your life, give you strength and put you ahead of the pack.
In Pursuit Of Elegance: Why The Best Ideas Have Something Missing by Matthew May: Former Toyota wunderkind, Matt May has just released a fast reading brain twister of a book. Think Freakanomics as applied to the design world and you have the idea. His point is simple, yet profound: Less is more, a whole lot more! He proves this with provocative (ala Gladwell) stories such as the uber-safe town where there are almost no accidents and NO traffic signals or stop signs. ??. Read the book and begin to understand how you can re-imagine a new world where simplicity is the goal, not a way to get there.
