From Publishers Weekly
Though Sharma rejects the guru label, it's hard not to think of the CEO of the training and coaching firm Sharma Leadership International that way after reading this slim volume of leadership and life advice. In two-page chapters with catchy titles and memorable anecdotes, this author of five bestsellers (The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
, etc.) dishes out wisdom for white-collar professionals on everything from goal setting and time management to figuring out your talents. In a chapter called "Harvey Keitel and Windows of Opportunity," he tells how he saw the Reservoir Dogs
star and walked in the other direction—not toward him, as he has with most celebrities—and his regret over not seizing that opportunity. In "Your Schedule Doesn't Lie," Sharma highlights the need to schedule things you really want to do in your life. In "Sell Your Desk," he advocates getting out of the office to become a better performer in business. A keen observer of life and business, Sharma frames his wisdom in a friendly, accessible way that will appeal to readers at every level of their careers. (Jan.)
