Personality Poker: The Playing Card Tool for Drivi&hellip by Stephen M Shapiro

This is one of the best and most useful business books I've ever read. And of course it's much more than just a book - it comes with a deck of Personality Poker playing cards, a brilliant invention for learning more about yourself, your co-workers and your employees.

We've been using Personality Poker in our company and it's an absolutely awesome tool for creating more innovation, energy and happiness in teams. It's fun, simple and fast but still give people a genuine insight into their personalities.

The book itself is a fun and easy read with tons of real-life examples - exactly the kind of business book I love and actually manage to read. As opposed to those… Read more

It seems like Dan Brown is trying to develop a new format: The ultra-condensed thriller. The action in his latest book, deception point, took place over 48 hours, and most of the story in this book unfolds over only 12 hours. Considering this, Brown still manages to pack an enormous amount of action into such a short time span. The book takes off within the first few pages, and it simply doesn't let up until the (quite satisfying) conclusion. The action drives you forward, and there's always a new event or question that you're just burning to discover the explanation for.
The book works wonderfully as a thriller, but it works on another level as well: The alternative view on historical… Read more
