At some point in the last few decades it became popular to write business advice and professional self-help books in a narrative format. Presumably this was done to make the concepts being described more accessible and engaging for the lay reader. But such an approach only works if the author has any idea how to write narrative fiction.

So let me just say it up front: This book is awful. If you want to know more, read on and I'll explain why I believe it is awful.

I received this book as a gift from a former fellow and current friend/mentor at the completion of my Spectrum Health fellowship. I think books are one of the best gifts. They impart knowledge, which is the gift that keeps on giving.

Concise, easy read. Great "truths" to follow for a successful professional and personal life. Good summaries at the end. My three start is mostly due to the approach to telling the truths and not the actual truths. I understand that Cottrell was trying to add the pe

Ryan Harris is a successful manager who is burnt out and tired of working hard and going nowhere. Looking for guidance, he turns to Jeff Walters, a semiretired executive who agrees to coach Ryan (they worked together years ago). Jeff had been mentored in the past so this is his chance to pay it forward.

They meet every Tuesday morning for eight weeks so Ryan can learn the eight simple truths:

* No Matter What!
* ... And Then Some
* Consider It Done
* Above All Else
* From Now On
* See It, Feel It, Trus

Whereas the book I read last, The Art of Persuasion: Winning Without Intimidation, was about getting your way at the expense of no one, and treating people special even if they can't do anything for you, Tuesday Morning Coaching was cold and somewhat empty. I found the tone condescending and merciless, and while none of the advice was downright bad, I didn't like the tone of the mentor, Jeff, and his success "no matter what" attitude. Maybe I'm just not meant to be a businessman, but luckily for ...more

This was such a great read with 8 simple truths. I read it every Tuesday morning and while I didn't take on the actions I plan on reading it again and embedding the truths as part of my value system.

Really a neat little book with some good advise on setting priorities, staying focused, and accomplishing success. I like the notes at the end of each chapter. They summarize the most important points nicely. This is a good book to give to an aspiring leader to read.

A must read! I received this book from the president of my company, so knew it would be important to read. These eight truths can be applied to an individual's career but also in his or hers personal life. My favorite chapter-truth is that Knowledge is Power! Keep reading books.

Simple, concise success principles told in story fashion. Very easy/quick read, definitely going to re-read.

5 stars isn't enough...
