Book Birthdays - 8th November 2017
Happy Book Birthday to the following 2 books today which have been added to my To Be Read pile:
In a solar system where The Authority decides who lives and who dies, only one of their own executioners can stop them.
Glade Io is a trained killer. Marked at a young age as an individual with violent tendencies, she was taken from her family and groomed to be a Datapoint—a biotech-enabled analyst who carries out the Culling. She is designed to identify and destroy any potential humans that threaten the colonies: those marked as lawbreakers, unproductive or sick. But when she’s kidnapped by rogue colonists known as the Ferrymen, everything Glade thinks she knows about the colonies, and The Authority that runs them, collapses into doubt.
Pulled between two opposing sides, and with her family’s lives hanging in the balance, Glade is unsure of who to trust—and time is running out.
In today’s business world, there is an enormous gap between how leaders are supposed to act versus how they actually act. As a leader, where do you fall on the spectrum?
In his debut book, John Slone teaches readers about discovering one’s Hidden You and using it to become the best leader possible. Before you can successfully lead others, you must first discover both the physiological and psychological attributes that make you, you. Every leader needs a systematic approach to successfully lead while taking into consideration the complexities of human behaviour and the innate survival instincts that are consciously and subconsciously invoked in every human interaction. Only by understanding this can you begin your leadership evolution and embark on a journey toward leadership transcendence.
I'm excited to read both of these books - watch out for the reviews!
