I am in a phase of my life where all I want to read is self-improvement books. I devour them these days. It’s gotten so bad that I noticed a self-improvement book on the desk of a work colleague who was on vacation last week and I nabbed it to read, very carefully, while he was away. I thought I could blitz through it and replace it on his desk with him being none-the-wiser when he returned from his trip.
Of course, I didn’t know I was going to read one of the books that will likely inform the direction of the rest of my life. I was immediately entranced with The Art of Possibility by Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander. I snuck the first few pages from my desk that morning. Then, I couldn’t help myself from closing my office door and reading a few more. Next, I took myself to lunch and found myself accidentally splattering the pages with salsa because I just had to keep reading while I ate. I’d finished it by the next evening and I had to order a new copy of the book for my colleague because there was no way I was going to return the one I’d ruined.
I can’t begin to describe how good it is. You MUST read it for yourself. Please do and let me know what you think.
