It grew on me
on 18 October 2011
This book was not at all what I was expecting, and I was not sure that I liked it at first. It found it a bit tacky and basic to start with and didn't expect to finish it. I was perhaps being overly judgemental. However, it grew on me, and the more I read, the more it grew on me. I also liked the quality of the cover and paper. It feels good quality in your hand and looks very good, which added to the pleasure of reading it.
It's not ground-breaking information, but it is helpful. Some of the chapters are barely a couple of paragraphs, but I have to admit the short, snappy style grew on me. Some of the advice provided is helpful for life in general rather than about thriving at work. I started to notice a spiritual theme running through the chapters and much of this really resonated with me; I think this is why it grew on me. Once I was half way through, I really wanted to keep reading and see what other interesting concepts the author was bringing to me. Some ideas were making me think twice, and some were getting me to see things in a different light, so it has certainly served its purpose for me. I will be keeping this little gem on my desk to dip into now and then.
