5.0 out of 5 stars Read this little gem quickly and then read it slowly, 7 Jan 2011

This review is from: The Secrets of Success at Work: 10 Steps to Accelerating Your Career (Paperback)
Richard Hall always has an interesting take on any number of aspects of our lives, as is clear from his books and his blog. This little gem is all about how to be successful at work and there are insights and advice in abundance. But it is not just about success at work, it is about how we live our lives.

It will be helpful for those starting their careers in perhaps the most difficult labour market since the Great Depression, as well as those of us who are further along the road.

The book is a glorious read and can be finished in a short period of time. It is misleading in this respect, because it's worth returning to and thinking about the advice and insight at a level of detail; working through some of the exercises with a pencil and an open mind; and then thinking some more.

It's rare for a management book to make me think deeply and laugh all at once and Richard does this in spades - "If you find either (cynics or negative pessimists) in your company avoid them or, if you can, fire them without pity".

It is also beautifully written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Words of wisdom, 3 Nov 2010
This review is from: The Secrets of Success at Work: 10 Steps to Accelerating Your Career (Paperback)
This book is typical of Richard Hall's skill as coach, mentor and all round business advisor. Having known and worked with him for 10+ years, I have experienced this wisdom first hand. Now he has written it all down in this book I feel as though I may lose some of my competitive edge against those that read and learn from it. Real world knowledge written in a thoroughly engaging way. For those of you that have not come across Richard before this is a very good introduction to him as a person, and a very sensible use of your time and money taking this advice on board.
