Another BOOKSNEEZE Review: "Classic Wisdom for the Professional Life"

I am making a list…those people I will buy this book for.  The list will include friends, business associates and even my son. If you ever look for quotes to use in presentations about leadership, this book can be a valuable resource.

If you need a book on your desk you can reference to give a little boost of encouragement as you lead a team, this book is for you.

When the package arrived and my sixteen year old son realized it was a book of quotes he took it out of my hands and begin to read. As he read he kept reading the ones he liked out loud to me. Finally I got my turn to read through the pages. It didn’t take long for me to determine this was a keeper and one that others would enjoy as a reference.

Classic Wisdom for the Professional Life includes quotes from some of the world’s preeminent business, political and cultural leaders including:

  • John D Rockefeller
  • Ulysses S. Grant
  • Mark Twain
  • Dolly Parton
  • Rick Pettino
  • Albert Schweitzer…and many others.

It is not a book to devour in one sitting but to refer to when a relevant quote on leadership is needed or when you need to affirm your own thoughts…there will be something that fills both requirements.
