Welcome

Ever notice that the world is full of experts who have never actually done what they are "experts" at?

Many a business professor has never actually managed a business. Most business courses stress defining business terms but never actually teach the concepts of running a business.

This blog hopes to teach some of the terms and, at the same time, give some examples and lessons on running a business.

There will also be reviews of books on business listed here. Sometimes companies give me books to review. Regardless of where I get the book to review, I will give my honest opinion. If I was given the book to review I will always disclose that in the review.

I seek to start posting on 02 January 2012. Some of the posts will be recycled from some of my other blogs.

The reader should know that there is no one “Right Way” to conduct business that will apply in all situations. This blog is meant as a place to start. It is hoped that you will perform further research and consult professionals experienced in your particular business before making any important decisions.

Book Review: Leadership by Rudolph W. Giuliani



The book Leadership by Rudolph W. Giuliani gives readers lessons regarding what it means to be a leader. Giuliani tells his readers how important it is to be a man of your word.  He tells them how to honor their commitments, how important it is to honor your oaths.

All of these things are important. He also tells readers how the leader has to walk the walk and lead by example.  In short, not to ask anyone to do something you cannot do yourself.  That is the mark of a great leader.

However, according to his own words in the book Leadership, Giuliani is not capable of practicing what he preaches.  Instead, it is a matter of do what I say, not what I do.

When one gets married, he makes certain promises.  He swears an oath before God, family, and friends.  There is a reason witnesses are required to sign the marriage license.

Giuliani tells how his girlfriend was there for him several times.  He extols her virtues. There is no virtue in cheating on one’s wife.  There is no virtue in one who would help a married man cheat on his wife.

Leadership is not really about how to be a leader, but more about how not to be a leader.  We give Leadership no stars.

Zero Stars


How can someone be an example of leadership when he lives a life that is completely opposite of what he says makes a great leader?

We recommend that you avoid this book at all costs.

Book Review: Reaching Your Next Summit! 9 Vertical Lessons for Leading with Impact by Manley Feinberg II





It is very engaging how Manley Feinberg II was able to weave leadership lessons into several very entertaining stories about extreme rock climbing in some amazing locations.


We give Reaching Your Next Summit! 9 Vertical Lessons for Leading with Impact by Manley Feinberg II all five stars on just the amazing photography.  Add in a very entertaining story or two and some leadership lessons and you have yourself one awesome book.


Feinberg makes the characters in this book come alive.  His story of how one airline employee was indifferent to his plight, but then how several others came to his aid, is very well-told.  


The reader sits on the edge of his seat while reading to find out what happened in several third world countries where Manley was trying to get to his once-in-a-lifetime climb.  And then again when he is trying to get back home.


Reaching Your Next Summit! should be on your gift list of books to give the business and/or management student on your Christmas gift list.

Book Review: My Life and Work by Henry Ford



Few men have ever accomplished as much as Henry Ford did.  His autobiography My Life and Work tells his early story in his own words.

Ford has been called many things, brilliant, eccentric, stupid, bigoted, stubborn, and more.  The reader may find that he had many parts to make up his whole.

Ford explains why he created a car and then did not change it for many, many years.  At the time he wrote My Life and Work, the Model T was still popular.

If you are studying business, you simply must read this book.  It will give you a different perspective of how to run a business.  Ford’s idea of paying higher wages was radical at the time.  Today, it is a simple fact of life.  If you want to keep good people, you have to pay them a fair wage.

My Life and Work was written pre-World War II.  Many things have changed since then.  This gives the reader a peek at what life was like “Between the Wars”.

For what it was meant to be, we give My Life and Work all five stars.  Ford wrote this more to be an explanation of who he was than for anything else.  We believe he hoped to some way validate himself to the American people.

Five Star Review


There are many different versions of My Life and Work available on Kindle.  Some are illustrated, some are not.  They range in prices.  


We were sent a complimentary copy of this book via a KDP promotion.  Actually, we were sent three different versions of the book over the years. We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

We are disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
