This book by Bob Burg & John David Mann is only 127 pages, but the 5 laws of business it teaches us will guide you to success that will last your entire lifetime. Whether a plane ride, or a long lunch at your desk, commit the time to enjoy this uplifting story and learn The 5 Laws of Stratospheric Success.Or follow an alternative way to enjoy the book over 5 days.
The story introduces a young man, Joe, he is a go-getter. But he has hit a low point in his sales-driven career. Then he is introduced to Pindar. Pindar offers to teach Joe his trade secrets, his 5 Laws of Stratospheric Success over a period of 1 week. These secrets are presented to him in a very mysterious way, by introducing him to 5 different people. The approach keeps the reader very engaged.
The story, of course, has a very happy ending, but with a twist that will certainly take you by surprise.
There are many special “nuggets” and quotes throughout the book, not to mention the 5 laws. But, there is a particular quote on page 108 that is very insightful:
“All the giving in the world wont bring you success, wont create the results you want, unless you also make yourself willing and able to receive in like measure. Because if you don’t let yourself receive, you’re refusing the gifts of others – and you shut down the flow.”
As mentioned above, the book can be read in one sitting, but if you want to receive the “course” the same way Joe did, read as follows:
Day 1: Chapter 1-4
Day 2: Chapter 5-7
Day 3: Chapter 8-9
Day 4: Chapter 10-11
Day 5: Chapter 12-14
One law experienced per day.
Joe learns, and so will you: Be good and do good for others and good business will follow and eventually, riches.
We hope you enjoyed this brief Book Review.
Until the Next Time…
