I received a free copy of this book from 12 Books Group in exchange for this review.

People Tools for Business is Alan Fox's follow up to People Tools. In this book, he explores 50 different tools to help people in business and in life. He spent many years in the practice of law, and now is CEO of a company that manages more than $1.5 billion of commercial real estate. He's not as famous as Donald Trump, and he doesn't have his own TV show, but from reading the book, he's been quite successful.<

Alan C. Fox is a successful real estate manager and entrepreneur (and poetry magazine publisher) and previously wrote a book titled People Tools. That book was a success, so he has written this sequel that focuses on business-related strategies. It’s divided into fifty short chapters, each with an story or two

I received this book from 12 Books, a business book club at Goodreads for free.
I tend to read business books as self-help books, mostly because I'm retired and finally have the time to read. I find many of the books are better self improvement books than the ones marketed for that purpose. This slim volume exceeds most of the others I've read in that department. It has taken many strategies and boiled them down to their essences. A lot of his chapters have been made into entire books by ot

What I liked about this book is that it's not boring at all. The book is very simple and easy to read. I certainly recommend it for anyone. The tools by Alan Fox are useful for everyone! Not only business guys!
Despite the fact that I'm a very slow reader, I finished the book in a very short time.

I saw the author on the Steve Harvey Show and like the title. I figured I need to read it. I pride myself on relationships with my customers but always like people who give back. And I have some time this weekend so downloaded it & reading it.

He wrote some other ones, but I liked the ease with which I went through this one (28 hrs?)
Fantastic, Mr. Fox!

Pretty good book. I learned from some of the chapters, but the last chapter was really interesting. I liked the fact that the book keeps you engaged because the chapters are small and to the point.
