Not another leadership book! What makes this prescription for leadership any different? Because if you’re like me, your induction to leadership was hypochondriacal. In fact, the first-time I was asked to lead, I was nauseous with bubble guts. I worried for days. If you’re like me, you create this BIG image of what a leader must be. You view leadership as some superhero-like, uncanny ability. You may say: “I don’t have ten pounds of ceremonious metals on my chess. I don’t possess 900 coaching wins on some athletic level.”
Fear not. Like most, you have been desperately searching for what works. With more than 10,000 served and decades of experience, Ron has written your prescription.
Amazingly, and many wet wipes later, this quick snapshot will tell you matter-of-factly what works, shattering your complex, super-sized fears associated with leadership and leading people. In these chapters, you’ll learn to:
• Understand why you’re here
• Embrace your emotional intelligence
• Engage the disengaged
• Appreciate what high-risk survival and rocks have in common
Ron Holloway’s Leadership: A Long Story Short puts the power of leading people to work. Practical. Powerful. Comedic. The inside is easy to read and packed with ready-to-use ideas. Inside you’ll find out “you don’t know what you don’t know.” Inside, you will learn a new paradigm from which to lead people.
Disclaimer: Book and title are not cures for nausea or bubble guts.
Side effects may include success, high-levels of appreciation from employees or teammates, gifts on Bosses Day, and desirable outcomes.
A 30 plus year regular dude and veteran of the light-skin persuasion, Ron explains how after developing multiple haters and problems, he established proven tactics and practices to being one cool light-skin.

• Be viewed as an ethnic subject-matter expert
• Be appreciated and acknowledged in the work-place
• Learn the history behind light-skin tribalism and its topography
• Get over the “letting your appearance go allergy”
• Have a personality that comes across as genuine
• Prevent yourself from being viewed as a “push-over”
So, you can be light-skinned, or you can BE light-skinned. If you want the cheat code to this complex complexion don’t stop now. Keep reading; the secrets lie within.

They love to drive us crazy.
It’s pick up this. Pick up that. Do this. And do that. They give you a bunch of sayings and clichés that have entirely no meaning whatsoever. Everything becomes you’ll understand when you grow up. Or they tell you that you better pay attention to what I say because it’s all for your own good. After chores you feel like you just had a boot camp-style workout. That’s when you give them the reply, “You just had me so that you could have a servant around.” Caution: depending on the parenting style you may or may not have had to duck and miss a slap after that comment.
You know who they are: They are our mothers. And for many of us they’re still mommy-ing today. But what about what they did back then? What about how they raised us? How do some of us get to where we are now through our mothers? How do we accept the reality of the world with which we’re presented through our moms?
Released on the day his mother passed away is a book that details Ron’s adolescent illusion of knowledge. He includes his mom’s parenting phrases, the causes and effect it had, his humorous reflection, and anecdotal stories of how he achieved success and continually experiences a lifetime of understanding from not listening to his Great Mom – until he did.

The stinky stuff we face in life is all around us. It’s the person who doesn’t acknowledge your “hello” by pretending to look at their phone. It’s the person who doesn’t let you merge into traffic. It’s the person that doesn’t hold the door for you. Why do people do these things? First, they haven’t read this book. Second, people simply do not take the time to be considerate. But, just imagine, if more people were considerate, then the smell of happiness and contentment would fester because heat rises and spreads, which means it will only grow larger and larger in your life. I actually remember something about this from my 7th grade science class.
The lack of a courtesy flush represents negativity, our lack of happiness, our inability to be nice, and our inability to be decent human beings. We paralyze our minds from the stench; our character becomes cloudy then there goes our otherwise good nature. That’s no way to live. Please sit on that toilet, flush and read this book. I’ll give anecdotes, share philosophy and offer advice for a more fulfilling, enjoyable and holistic life that will leave you feeling fresh and clean inside and out, even when you get off the pot.
No book is more fun. No book is more creatively captivating. And no other book will cause you to run to the bathroom right away just to get started.
