Most Post: How-To Books

How_to_books It's been a while since I've done my last MOST post.  I decided when I started these that I would only post one that I thought would be interesting and engaging.

Recently, I've been thinking about "How To" books... no, not writing one myself, mind you.  But I am curious about your opinions,,,

So answer one of the following questions:

  1. What has been the most helpful "how to" book you've ever read (include amazon or other web link)?
  2. What is your most coveted "how to" book that has yet to be written?

This could be fun... have a great weekend.

One of the most helpful books on writing is Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird. I read this before I started writing my first book...her main point...just do it...take the task one word, one day at a time and write! Thanks Tim for reminding me (need to get going on that second book now!)

Timothy Johnson

Yes, Delaney, great one... also, since I write business fables, one of my favorites on how to for story telling is The Story Factor by Annette Simmons.

One of the best leadership books I've read is The World's Most Powerful Leadership Principle-How To Become A Servant Leader by James C. Hunter.
When I became the manager of our dental practice I had to learn by the seat of my pants. This book made so much sense to me that I emailed the author to thank him for writing it. He responded by sending me an autographed copy of his first book about leadership.
Seems like he walks the talk, doesn't it? I know that since I read his books, my approach is much more effective.

Linda - great suggestion! But where were you when I needed input for my leadership class reading list?!?!?! Thanks for sharing.
