Review

Deborah Grayson Riegel s book Oy Vey! Isn t a Strategy is a witty, fresh, and insightful collection of wisdom. The easy reading allows the teachings to enter one's heart by circumventing our defense mechanisms. Deborah is a master at being uplifting and enriching without being preachy. Oy Vey! will definitely enhance life. --Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Deborah is a wonderful coach to work with. Her reflection skills are top-notch to help you truly see where you are in life and her tools help you elevate yourself to where you want to be. --Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Seattle, WA

Oh, wow for Oy Vey! Deborah offers readers a beneficial and sometimes sobering look in the mirror like a fire hydrant filled with chocolate to help us get rid of self-imposed barriers to extraordinary success. And she does it with humor, sass, and vivid stories! A great read that could change how you work forever. --Lisa Haneberg, blogger and author of High Impact Middle Management

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful coaching with entertaining stories May 2, 2012
Format:Paperback
I was eager to read Deborah's book because I have heard her speak and think she is one of the best in the country on topics related to effective organizations. While I am drawn to books on this topic, I have little interest in coaching or self-help books. Those types of books usually have a great chapter 1 or 2 and then get repetitive. Deborah's book was different - Oy Vey Isn't a Strategy kept getting better. As I was reading I made mental notes on which chapters I wanted to share with certain friends, family or colleagues. Deborah blends hard facts and proven research with delightful stories. At the same time, her messages feel personal. While different chapters will resonate more with some (depending on what you are struggling with at the present time), there is definitely something here for everyone. I appreciate how easily she credits many authors, including some of my favorite (Covey, Dan and Chip Heath, Ori and Rom Brafman, Naomi Levy and Daniel Pink). Deborah also introduces a number of books and articles that I want to go read. Integrating work sheets is a wonderful way for readers to practice the lessons. I read it through once to get a sense of the content and enjoy the stories. I'm going to read it again to let the material sink in and use a few of the worksheets Congratulations Deborah on a book (and life lessons) well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Top 4 Reasons to Read Oy Vey June 3, 2012
Format:Paperback
For those considering (or had yet to consider) whether to buy Deborah Greyson Riegel's Oy Vey isn't a Strategy: 25 Solutions for Personal and Professional Success, do yourself a favor, buy it and read it, I promise you won't regret it.

Oy Vey is not just another pious and impractical management or self-help book. It doesn't pontificate, speak from theory alone, or provide strategies that don't seem applicable in the real world, as I find most of these books to do. Oy Vey is quite the opposite. It is also a fast, easy, and enjoyable read. Ok, onto my Top 4 reasons.

1. Oy Vey is Great Storytelling

If you have ever seen Deborah present or facilitate a workshop, you would know that she is funny, direct, exciting and relatable. Amazingly, she is able to harness all her energy and relate-ability to words on a page. She does so with the art of great storytelling, providing anecdotes from her life to introduce each solution. Not only do you obtain these 25 key insights that will help you get to know yourself, work with others productively and get things done (the first three sections of the book), but you get to know Deborah, her family, her own challenges, hopes, dreams and past failures from which she's learned from. Combining her personal narrative along with her coaching expertise, you are beaming at what the next chapter will bring; not only in a helpful strategy but eager to learn more about Deborah's story.

2. Oy Vey is experiential education

Not everyone reading this review may know what experiential education is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and practical read May 14, 2012
Format:Paperback
"Deborah has created a practical work that is infused with humor, lightness, and directly useful ideas to support navigating in today's busy world. From more deeply accessing our individual gifts and paying more defined attention to others, to getting things done more effectively with enhanced perspectives, her wit and charming use of language bring this book to life. Deborah's stories are a delight and serve to anchor the principles she outlines. Not only a practical book with excellent exercises throughout, it is a fun read!"
