really liked it
bookshelves: 2011, non-fiction-other
Read from October 02 to 12, 2011

A student mentioned this book to me after another teacher told the class about it. I then mentioned it for my on line book club for something different to read. I was surprised with how easy this book was to read beacuse I usually find nonfiction less engaging. But, the ideas presented were fasinating. Not only do they challenge how we view how one becomes successful, but the true stories used as examples keep it from getting dull and dry.

Kristina They were selling this at BJ's and I almost bought it this weekend!

jacky A student was raving about it. She said she hates non-fiction but found this fascinating. She said Davis had mentioned it in her History class and she is going to get another book by the author called Blink.

Kristina I think Patrick H. is a big fan of the author, too.
