So many books, so little time to read. The next 4 titles I've read, I loved, I recommend. They cover marketing, branding, the human condition and how to stay competitive. Confessions of a Public Speaker by Scott Berkun Loaned to me by another speaker, I laughed out loud for several nights while reading this book. It's a gem. Whether you do presentations as part of your job or you are a paid professional speaker, this book is raw, funny and a valuable resource.Why it's worth the read: It's a fast fuel to improve your speaking, around 200 pages, I love snarky humor, its got lots of it, it provides simple, actionable how to's and it's real. Scott has been around.

I have read two contentious and highly critical book reviews in the Wall Street Journal from the past 30 days. The first review is about a book by an author who is a great friend of mine. Brandwashed by Martin Lindstrom. Here is the not so flattering review, in WSJ. The second review was on the book The Secret thoughts of Successful Women by Valerie Young, E.d. D. No love affair here either, WSJ.
