by Rosamund Zander

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb., 25 Oct. 2011

Superb. Wonderful book on the practices of living a life of possibility.

Full of stories of lives lived in an iconoclastic way, of applying radical ideas in practical experiments.

Experiment At Work: Explosions and experiences at the most frightening company on earth
by Andy Law
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Semler-style organisation, 25 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Following in the Semler model - a new approach to business (and life).

I am not sure how much of what St. Lukes did was completely original, but they certainly did it in their own original way (if that makes sense).


Hidden Persuaders, The
Hidden Persuaders, The
by Vance Packard
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 25 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Hidden Persuaders, The (Paperback)
Marvellous.

A classic (first published in 1957) about the advertising industry and the use of psychology to create a consumer society. Fascinating as a history book, and an input into an understanding of the consumer culture we still live in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing intro to TA, 25 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An essential introduction to Transactional Analysis. It's written in a way that is intriguing and interesting though.

Eric Berne is simply one of the "must-read" psychologists.


Marketing Plan 5e
Marketing Plan 5e
by William A. Cohen
Edition: Paperback
Price: £157.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A strategic marketing plan, 25 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Marketing Plan 5e (Paperback)
This book includes lots of student examples. But it makes a good simple introduction to writing a marketing plan.

I think a marketing plan of this type can sometimes be more useful than a traditional business plan.

Wonderful stuff. Told so simply. It's a kind of focusing I guess.

(If you don't know what focusing is look up Gendlin on Wikipedia or Amazon).

by Tom Lambert

4.0 out of 5 stars Straight forward and sensible, 24 Oct. 2011
Very straight forward. Some proven advice on marketing and selling. Mainly aimed at freelance consultants but also relevant to small practices.

The back part contains some useful appendices giving some templates for simple consulting techniques. You will learn that there is nothing complicated out there in terms of tools and techniques.


People Skills: How to Assert Yourself, Listen to Others and Resolve Conflicts
People Skills: How to Assert Yourself, Listen to Others and Resolve Conflicts
by Robert Bolton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent general introduction, 24 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent general introduction to the topic of how to relate to other people, how to be more assertive etc.

Full of good advice, which is mostly quite easy to implement.

Some of the dialogues are quite long, but if you only internalise a few ideas it will probably help you.
