Little Book with Big Insight Mar 30, 2007
The Little Red Book of Wisdom is a wonderfully written motivational book which balances personal experience with scripturally based truths. It also includes tremendous insights into how to run a business. Anyone who reads this book will want to work for Mark DeMoss! It provokes a wide range of emotions within the reader. I laughed out loud with some stories, while others brought tears to my eyes! If you have read Andy Stanley's book, The Best Question Ever, then you will love this book as a great follow up!
Pretty good read! Mar 21, 2007
The Little Red Book of Wisdom is one of those books that after you read it, you'll say "I think I knew all of this already", but it was good to be reminded of it. The book provided a lot of interesting stories that a lot of people might find surprising. Every chapter has good insight in it and it's something that many people can learn from. His practice of reading a proverb a day is a habit I am trying to form myself. It's a really good book that I recommend to everyone to remind themselves of life's curveballs and routes that should be taken.
Great read with rewarding insight Mar 19, 2007
The Little Red Book of Wisdom is a great book to keep by your bed and read one of the short chapters before turning in for the night. It will definitely inspire you and provide you with food for thought during the next day.
A must-read for children, teens, and adults! Mar 19, 2007
The Little Red Book of Wisdom provides a BIG helping of practical advice for life at home and at work. Well written and easy to read, the book will almost certainly challenge your thinking and instigate at least one new positive habit (mine are writing more letters and thinking more before I start working). If you are looking for a graduation gift, a First Communion gift, a confirmation gift, or just a "hey, you're my friend and I care about you" gift, you can do no better than Mark DeMoss' "Little Red Book of Wisdom."
A sprinkling of insights on good judgement... Mar 16, 2007
I expected this book to be focused on business-related principles. I thought that because I found it in the business section of my local bookstore. However, there is a mixture of wisdom between pratical, professional, inter-personal and spiritual. With that said, the emphasis is spiritual.
Additionally, I thought the book was going to contain shorter tidbits of wisdom. You know, kind of punchy pieces to ponder. Instead the book includes mostly personal stories from the author's own life, and as a result it ends up being biographical and anecdotal.
I liked the chapter titled 'Buy some stamps' - Reclaiming the lost art of letter writing.' However, instead of focusing on why letters don't get written much anymore and how meaningful they can be, I wish the chapter gave more pratical advice for what makes a memorable letter and how to proceed in writing one.
Here are some of the other chapters I liked...
1. A Matter of Death and Life - Life is brief 2. Stay Under the Umbrella - Keeping your focus in life 4. The Amazing Power of Understatement - Under-promise, over-deliver 5. Work Less, Think More - Good thinking requires some effort 9. Good People Are Everything; Money Isn't - Building a winning corporate culture 16. A Proverb a Day - Wisdom for every aspect of your life in one short book 18. Shut Up and Listen - Learning to listen more than you speak 20. Anticipate Deathbed Regrets - Take steps now to avoid regrets later in life
