Summary Of The Book 'You Are A Badass'

Satisfactory Essays
The two books I read were “You Are A Badass” by Jen Sincero, which I reviewed on my blog (See Appendix A, ) and “Lady Midnight” by Cassandra Clare. What I learned from this exercise was finding time for things is not that difficult. I started to see new opportunities to spend my time reading. I brought the book I was reading with me every day to school. Even if I did not read the day before it would still stay in my bag for the next day. Instead of listening to music on my commutes home I would read. Instead of binge watching a show I was slightly interested in I sat down and read. Accomplishing my first book of the year, “You Are A Badass,” set the tone for the rest of the semester. It showed that I could focus on one thing and read a book

    MANAGEMENT BOOK SUMMARY The book I chose to read was “When I Say No, I Feel Guilty” by Manuel J. Smith. The first thing to stand out to me in this book was it seemed a little outdated. Even though the writing style and the examples appeared to be from a different era, I was still able to see how different points were relevant today and to me personally. This title screamed my name when I was browsing the list of choices because no matter what I am saying no to, I always feel guilty. From the…

As a well-known, very credible Christian theologist, one may wonder why Grudem would venture out to right a book solely about business. “Business for the Glory of God,” looks at business ownership, profitability, money…
