Other Business Books

I have two categories for books on my blogs, the best books with 5 star and 4 star ratings and other books with the rest.

This is the page with “the rest”.

The truth is that I had originally only planned to bring the reviews of the best business books from Amazon to my blog but then I found myself wanting to refer to these other books I’d reviewed.

With the best business books, I have created separated categories to help you to find the best books by subject, for example the best business strategy books, the best marketing books etc.

With these other books, which I’m not recommending, I haven’t done that although they do feature within the subject categories. For example, books about business turnaround appear with all my other articles about business turnaround.

Here are links to the individual pages after this first one – page 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27

Worth reading

My feelings about this book were a bit like a yo-yo.

I was worried at first. The author tells the story of how he grew his coaching business after breaking his back. I thought it was a bit over long and boastful. The point was that you can turn adversity into something positive. [continue reading…]

I don’t like the writing style

I made the mistake of buying two books by this author in the same buying splurge. I criticised the first for its editing.

I think I have a problem with the author’s writing style. As I read, I want to get out a red pen and start marking up the book.

I didn’t get very far with this book before I decided my irritation factor was too highly to get value from it.

The Success Principles by Darren Stephens

The full title of this book by Darren Stephens is

The Success Principles: 15 Secrets to Multiplying Your Business Profits

In my review posted on Amazon.co.uk, I gave the book a 3 Stars rating. This means it is Worth Reading.

Here is my book review.

Packed with tips so why don’t I like it more?

The book is a list of business tips with fairly brief explanations.

It is packed with practical, positive advice and I’ve only got a few quibbles about what’s written. It’s easy enough to read.

That said, I have a problem. I don’t like it and I can’t really explain why.

It draws heavily on Jay Abraham style marketing. That shouldn’t be a problem because I’m a big fan although it means I’ve heard it all before.

It seems to lack a unifying structure. That’s not uncommon with tips books.

It’s quite promotional and I wonder if there’s an undeclared affiliate link. Hints to his mastermind are scattered through the text and there are quite a few adverts for the author at the back of the book.

A fair rating is probably 4 stars but I feel this is one of many similar books and some have been done better. If I was you, I’d start with “Getting Everything You Can…” by Jay Abraham. It’s old but it’s an original source of many of these ideas. If you want something with the Internet, I recommend Digital Marketing for Dummies by Ryan Deiss.

The Art of Seductive Copywriting by Shirley Long

In my review of

The Art of Seductive Copywriting by Shirley Long

posted on Amazon.co.uk, I gave the book a rating of 2 Stars. This means it is disappointing.

Here is my book review.

Did the author write this book? It’s very similar to another.

When I started reading this book, I had a strong feeling of deja vu. What was written seemed incredibly familiar . It reminded me of another book I’d read recently when it came to talking about common copywriting mistakes. [continue reading…]

Jay Abraham has released three full length books on pdf today. All he asked is you tell 25 entrepreneurs you know.

The third is called

Putting Your Marketing Genius to Work

This is what he says…

“It’s a lighter introductory to Jay Abraham, designed and intended to stimulate entrepreneurs unfamiliar with me and my work to seek more of our products, programs, services — due to the exciting realizations the book quickly brings out.

While not as deep as the other two, it is an excellent fast-track review of my body of work and might stimulate YOU to want more/deeper access to our products.”

He also warns there are promotional elements in this book which are absent from the other two.

You can get the book here.

My Thoughts

I haven’t read it yet but I can tell you:

  1. Jay Abraham has been a major influence on my thinking about business growth, opportunities for profit and marketing.
  2. His book “Getting Everything You Can…” is one of the books I recommend all business owners read.
  3. This is the book which, on first sight, appeals to me most. My knowledge of Jay Abraham will go far beyond the elements in this book but it’s always useful to read an overview which lets you see the jigsaw puzzle put back together.

The second is called

No Limit – The Limit is Only In Your Brain

This is what he says…

“Book two is a rough English translation of a huge bestseller I co-authored in Japan to help the estimated 35,000 young adults who every year commit suicide — because they feel helpless, hopeless, purposeless, irrelevant in their career, life.

No Limit – The Limit is Only In Your Brain provides a strategy for gaining passion, a mammoth sense of purpose and possibility.

It’s actually a surprisingly inspiring read for any entrepreneur who may have lost their way, feels helpless, deflated emotionally and beleaguered.

This is a rough draft done by a well-intended Japanese translator, but it IS imperfect. Nevertheless, I sense working through it is more than worth the trouble.”

  1. Jay Abraham has been a major influence on my thinking about business growth, opportunities for profit and marketing.
  2. His book “Getting Everything You Can…” is one of the books I recommend all business owners read.
  3. This seems very suitable for business owners who feel stuck because the business is struggling. I’m not so keen on the “rough draft” issue but it’s very relevant to people who read my blog.
