Books – recommended reading

Personal Development is a Key to Success

Personal Development is a Key to Success

Club Red CEO and Coach Tony Inman says, “These are books that are in my personal library, so I can recommend them to you.”

(small confession – there are a couple here that I have not yet made time to read, but I will :-))

Do you know that the average Australian reads about one book per year after they leave school – and usually it’s a fictional book?!!

So if you were to read one book per month, that would make you twelve times smarter.

Another point – when someone writes a book, they are recording things it has taken them years, maybe even decades to learn. So you are receiving concentrated learning in a couple of hours. That’s being smart now isn’t it?

Remember, “All leaders are readers!”

Charlie ‘Tremendous’ Jones said, “You’ll be the same person in 5 years as you are today, except for the people you meet and the books you read”. (I’d just add a third thing – the seminars you attend).
