    The book that changed my life was “Introduction to Management” by an author whose name I can’t recall. As I studied management, it opened up a whole new world to me, much of which seemed like common sense but wasn’t being practised by Australian managers. It took me off onto a management trail, one I have followed for most of my working life.

    Dr Damboso Moyo’s book, “How the West Was Lost” is my next read. I downloaded it onto my Kindle yesterday. I doubt whether anything can change my life now, but she seems to present a good analysis of what is wrong with capitalism and what we need to do to go forward.

    Reading business books will only help you in business a little bit. It’s what you do as a result of reading the books. Most books have been written by people who have the ability to turn their thoughts into actions and who are not scared of failing. Balancing your time between reading books and doing the right things for your business is the tricky part.

      So true Steve. And it’s so important not to get stuck reading – and forget about DOING!
