Paul writes just like he speaks.,
This review is from: S.U.M.O.: Shut Up, Move On: The Straight-Talking Guide to Creating and Enjoying a Brilliant Life (Paperback)
If you've seen on of Pauls many public and corporate speeches, you'll recognise the style and the humour about what is actually a serious subject - how to get over problems and move on. Although Paul talks about SUMO (Shut Up and Move On), he doesn't mean ignore what's happened and get a life - he means consider what's happened, what's the approriate action and get started on living life to the full every day.
Plenty of tips and stories here to keep you interested and rooted in practical real life dramas. So if you can't get to see Paul on his travels - this is the next best thing. If you do hear him, this book will remind you of everything he said. If you're like me, I suggest you get a copy for the car - read a bit before you plan the day - and read a bit at the end to get into perspective what went right and wrong wrong.
Yes it is a 'motivational book' - but not in the American style of "what you want/think is what you'll get" froth. Paul talks about what is practical and achieveable. A good read - and it's funny as well.
