Book lost: Thinking Strategically

It had to happen: I didn’t finish a book during my reading challenge.

It was Thinking Strategically: The Competitive Edge in Business, Politics, and Everyday Life.

The first chapters were very good, but reading on it felt dry and I just couldn’t go on.

As I said, this will not count towards my goal of 53 books in one year.

Book review: Time out of joint by Philip K. Dick (3/53)

Time Out of Joint by Philip K. Dick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I finished this book in two days: that’s just how addicting it is.

The story is well written: maybe a little slow in the beginning and too fast near the end.

I liked very much the frequent shifts in the point of view.

Book review: Purple Cow (2/53)

La mucca viola: Farsi notare (e fare fortuna) in un mondo tutto marroneLa mucca viola: Farsi notare (e fare fortuna) in un mondo tutto marrone by Seth Godin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A good quick read!

Even if Godin keeps repeating the same message throughout the book, it gives a lot of food for thought.
I really appreciated the brainstorming chapter.

Book review: Everybody Writes by Ann Handley (1/53)

Everybody Writes: Your Go-To Guide to Creating Ridiculously Good Content by Ann Handley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Read this book if writing is not your job and you want a quick intro to the subject.

I read this book because I wanted to write more and learn about the fundamentals.

I realize that it’s a basic book, but I enjoyed it very much: the recipe-based format it’s really useful as you can go back and easily find what you need.
