I like to read anything that tells a good story, duh ;) Genre doesn't really matter much but I tend to read dark fiction and fantasy the most. I skip chick lit and romance novels with a few exceptions for the extraordinary.

 

My ratings system:

5 stars - ADORED; plan to read over and over and over.

4 stars - ENJOYED; will likely read once or twice more.

The Millionaire Messenger: Make a Difference and a Fortune Sharing Your Advice

The Millionaire Messenger: Make a Difference and a Fortune Sharing Your Advice - Brendon Burchard Inspirational without all the rah-rah fluff. Best part of the whole book? The Expert Signposts. They ask questions that lead to actionable answers. I'm probably the most motivated I've ever been after reading a "self-help" type book.Having said that, Burchard does mention his Experts Academy A LOT. I'm sure this has to do with the psychology of selling and marketing but dang, for those of us who are savvy to such techniques, seeing the reference to EA over and over can get a little annoying. (Especially when most people reading The Millionaire Messenger probably found it by signing up at EA's site.)Other than that, no complaints. Burchard gives actionable information and seems to genuinely like helping people become Millionaire Messengers.
