036 - Classic Wisdom for the Professional Life

Classic Wisdom for the Professional Life was a short read. The book took me less than 24 hours to wade my way through the various quotes. I found some of the quotes good, but questioned when these would be practical. For a pastor like me I have very few needs from a “professional life” quote book. In fact, other than framing some of these and putting them on the wall, or being a gift book for an MBA graduate, I’m not sure why this book was published. If you’re the kind of person who gets motivated simply by reading a quote book, then it’s probably right up your alley.

The other major negative about this book was that it was priced at $15.99 retail. Holy cow! I’m not sure who would spent 16 bucks on a book that takes a few hours to read, but if they have that much money they probably don’t need some “professional life” wisdom. I gladly read the book, and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to receive a reader’s copy for no charge, but I have a hard time recommending this book to anyone. If you’re really interested in it, I’d recommend checking it out at a library.

According to the law I have to tell you that I received a free readers copy from Thomas Nelson, but that had nothing to do with my like/dislike of the book.
