Editorial Reviews

From the Author

My intent in writing LiNK was to deliver something that nets immense value to the reader. LiNK is a book that takes you on a journey into means our minds connect, with real-life examples and no jargon. In addition, LiNK is for people who typically wouldn't read a book on how to improve organizations. It'll give you an enchanting view of the simplicity of how to garnish meteoric outcomes. 

In short, I desire every reader to come away with a renewed sense of breaking the isolation cycle and becoming better equipped to link their minds to those around them. And...learn how the human brain is cognitively wired to accomplish this.

About the Author

In brief, John Serpa is a simple person that believes all of us were created with a purpose and mission. For him, it's to engage people with a message that gives them the means to link their mind one to another thus forging cohesion. John believes we're all on the same playing field and each and every human being deserves respect and empathy. This is what augments lasting greatness. His succinct belief is that most organizations need to move from being transactional to transformational and his passion is to help with that process.

John Serpa is also a frequent contributor to the online magazine, Social Media Today, and has presented to corporations and conferences on the subject of motivation and engagement. For more information about John, please visit johnserpa.com. You can also email him at john@johnserpa.com or tweet @johnserpa.

Watch how Mr. Serpa combines the actions of a ship's captain, a corporate executive, a principal, trapped miners and stormchasers.

I am not a business person- but have experienced working/serving in both large and small organizations in my medical practice and as a coach. This book is loaded with fascinating examples of successful individuals, teams and groups who have harnessed the power of our brain's interconnectivity........ and how we, as humans, are capable of creating miracles, discovering a needle in a haystack and solving problems when we LiNK or connect with our minds. Fine tuned attentiveness, noticing, probing deeper are just a few of the skills highlighted. In a world which is as the Author says increasingly more like "whitewater" all the time its important for our businesses and our communities to be able to LiNK for the benefit of all. Together we are so much stronger, more brilliant and resourceful than we are alone. The author does an amazing job of telling great stories and then dissecting just what aspect of neuroscience is at play, how it was leveraged and the amazing outcomes possible when we LiNK. Why are we here on the planet after all? I believe it's to serve the whole while seeking to fulfill our own desires....I am because we are (LiNK-ed).

I enjoyed this fast-paced, exciting, and joyful romp through an examination of how we connect with one another. LiNK is loaded with studies, anecdotes, and personal observations that bolster the claim that the nature and quality of our personal interactions provide concrete results in all areas of human endeavor. These insights can be useful to people in all sorts of fields, from business, to education, to family life.

Let me start off by saying, I don't read non-fiction--or didn't, until I picked up a copy of John Serpa's new, spellbinding book, LINK. I'd heard that this was a business book, but not a business book. I don't read business books, either (unless, held at gunpoint.) Along with business, Link is spiritual book, discussing how each one of us connects on levels much deeper than life suggests. How our positive (and negative) thoughts affect others. How to improve a business, a school, any kind of organization using a few easy, no-cost steps.

Watch how Mr. Serpa combines the actions of a ship's captain, a corporate executive, a principal, trapped miners and stormchasers. What do these people have in common that changed how they effectively handled big issues using a variety of techniques offered in Link. What I like about Link, is that every point is scientifically researched. In fact, the book is brought to life as we vividly, albeit imaginatively, get to participate in many of the experiments used to test the theories.

I've been told that Mr Sepa is a stormchaser himself. Reading Serpa's book made me understand how he can harness a storm of ideas and lay them out in such easy to read, brillantly interesting and inspiring prose. I highly recommend Serpa's LINK. You will, too!

Bravo, Mr Serpa. Bravo!
