Review: Turn the Ship Around! by L. David Marquet

A breath of fresh air in business managament theory, this approach makes a alots of sense and resonated as the type of system I would want to be employed in. If you have disengaged employees or are disengaged yourself then definately give this a read, maybe they/you want to feel a bit more responsible for…

Review: Running Like a Girl by Alexandra Heminsley

Heart warming story about how she got off the couch and gave it a go, eventually progressing to running distance races. Honest and not sugarcoated but told with humour and humility. Will get you digging out your trainers. 4*

Review: Muslim, Trader, Nomad, Spy by Sulmaan Wasif Khan

Review: I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

Must read for anyone who is unsure what is/was going on in Afghanistan. The basics of the conflict are explained in simple terms from Malala’s point of view as a child in the country during the conflict. Relatable, empathy inducing, inspirational. 5*

Review: The Sellout by Paul Beatty

The plot doesn’t go where you expect it to after the first chapter. Entertaining, confusing and eyebrow raising read. Not for the PC police. 4*

Review: Playing Big by Tara Mohr

Many of the ‘issues’ to be dealt with were ones I have had to grapple with, but this book encourages tangible action with examples if you’re a bit stuck, which was awesome. Worth a read, but note if you have…
