the book pile: recent reads
Anyone who's in the business of communication should take a look at Brief, Joseph McCormack's insights into how you can make a bigger impact by saying less. His take is that people are so busy, we need to pare down our messages. I'm all for clear communication and this book is a great first-step at how to strive for successful business relations. Emily Gould's Friendship screamed Girls as I read the novel about two friends who met while working at a publishing house. It seems I'm not the only one to draw comparisons - see here for more information. Here, Home, Hope is the story of a woman at a crossroads - her two children at school, Kelly Johnson is nearing 40 and wondering what to do with her life. Kaira Rouda's novel is a light read that strikes a real chord.
More to come in future posts, hopefully it will be business as usual from here-on in!
