The full title of this book by Stan Peake is
Now What?: 50 Ways to Build Your Business in a Crisis
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.
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.
The next section I thought was very good. The author explains why you need to adopt an opportunity seeking mindset. (If you’re interested, this is a reason why I love studying Jay Abraham’s ideas).
Then the book moves into a list of fairly standard tips and ideas. These are covered very briefly.
If you look, you’ll find quite a few of this type of book on Amazon. The most extensive I can think of while writing this review is Instant Cash Flow by Bradley Sugars (ActionCoach). It’s the only book of his I recommend but it is old and doesn’t include more recent developments like social media.
This current book has been published in the era of the Covid-19 lockdown. I was hoping for something more applicable to this extraordinary situation.
I’m also a business coach, specialising in business owners who feel stuck. I’m always aware of the “not invented here” problem but I’ve tried to be fair.There are many thousand of business books, you can see the full list of my reviews at Business Books Reviews by Paul Simister (Please click).
