If there is ever a book that you can read and then re-read, and every time learn something new, or remind yourself about who you want to be – it is Paul Arden‘s It’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be.
From explaining why it is better to live in a world full of mediocrity, through taking a Posh point of view on Persil Automatic, to siding with people who are difficult, Arden comes up with plenty of evidence to champion those who fail, make mistakes and don’t win awards. Sounds, er, weird? Not really. Read this book and you will find out why it is (in the words of the publisher) a pocket bible for the talented and timid to make the unthinkable thinkable and the impossible possible.
PS. Did I mention you can read this book over and over again? Do.
